Tag! You're It!

We were quite violent when we played tag at school! The word tag was accompanied by a hard slap or punch to the arm. This should be a much gentler experience!

The Left Over Queen has tagged me in my first meme. So here goes!

Tagged! 7 Random Foodie Facts


1 Mushrooms, mushrooms, mushrooms! I just love them! I love them on thick crunchy toast, in a creamy risotto, all herby on pasta and garlicky on bruschetta.

2 I cannot stand marzipan, liquorice or aniseed and I just don't know why that is!

3 I remember when I was quite young I used to climb up on a chair and on to the kitchen unit. Then I could reach the cupboard that housed the Colman's French Mustard. I would then sit on the unit and eat it with a teaspoon, until my inevitable capture by mum or dad!

4 When I went to college and lived on my own for the first time, I had to start cooking for myself. My Repertoire wasn't very extensive, I can tell you! I lived off salads, pizza and sandwiches. But I did have a signature dish - Macaroni Cheese. My mum taught me how to make a good cheese sauce from a roue! My guests were impressed!

5 I love watching cookery programmes and I don't even mind if they are cooking with meat, I know they will get around to making a side dish or dessert!

6 My favourite kitchen gadget is my potato ricer. It reminds me of a toy I played with as a child. It was a barbershop of plastic people! You put plasticine(playdough) in the people and squeezed. Long gooey hair squished out and then you gave them a haircut! The potato ricer is just really a grown-up version of that!

7 My greatest pleasure is coming home after work on a hot summer's day and sitting in my garden with a good book and a glass of chilled rose! Ah bliss!

Gentle tap on the arm!

  1. Well, I love marzipan and anise and fennel...but I can see how people might not like those...

    A glass of wine and a good book? How can anything be better?!

  4. Dear holler. Guess what. I was ata friend's place recently and they pulled out the play-doh kid's hair thing! I was really impressed - what a cool game. Obviously, I missed out in my childhood.
