My sweet friend Laura of she's cookin' now! has sent me this award. I am sincerely touched! Most of the time I feel like I am this average person, average cook, average blogger, average everything, and then along comes a nice surprise like this! Thank you so much Laura for thinking of me. However, nothing comes free in life right? Now she wants me to answer questions about myself. Seven of them. And I have to pass the award on to seven other TWD friends! That will not be easy either because there are so many out there worthy of this award and yet I can only pass to seven.

Seven things I say most:

I'm so over it!
Shut up, are you serious?
What's for dinner?
You have GOT to be kidding me?
When is the kitchen going to be finished?
I hate incompetence!
Love you

Seven things I did before: (My question is before what?)
played league tennis
taught art appreciation to first through fifth graders
Taught beginning piano lessons
Was on a bowling league
Went to South America on a medical mission trip
Started two novels but who knows when they will get finished

Seven things I do now

Work full-time
Watch television (mostly HGTV, Grey's Anatomy)
Crocheting an afghan
blog about my cooking
Read books and magazines (I'm a People magazine junkie and Nora Roberts)

Seven things I want to do

Go to Italy (which we are planning to do this spring)
Read more books
Finish my novels
Go to Ireland
Win the lottery (this would cover most of the other things I want to do!)
Make my husband the happiest man on earth
See my children more often

Seven things that attract me to the opposite sex:

Sense of humor
Nice smile
Honest and committed
Must be as or more intelligent than me
Keeps in shape
doesn't hurt if he is hot and looks like Patrick Dempsey

Seven favorite foods:
A perfectly grilled steak
Macaroni and Cheese
Any kind of potatoes
Good breads that I can dip in my wine
spaghetti with meat sauce
bread pudding
turkey and dressing

Seven blogs I want to pass this award to. This is the hard part. I mean how does one choose just seven when there are over 300 really really great ones? I really enjoy reading the following blogs and I know you will too. All of these are creative cooks, have beautiful photography, wonderful writers, and have inspired me personally in some way. If you do not have time to pass this on, I completely understand, but I wanted you to have the award!
