Friday Feast 111

Brought to you, as usual, through the kindness of Friday's Feast. Play along; you'll like it.

Appetizer
What was the very last song you listened to? The last song that I heard was something by Jerry Garcia on the classic rock music station on my cable. I had put it on before I left so the bird wouldn't get spooked by the silence. The last song I listnened to was some song I don't know the name of from the musical, Rent. It's Ashley's new favorite song. I don't remember the name (can you tell how impressed I was by it?)

Soup
What is one company/store/corporation you would recommend that people stay away from? I'm not one to recommend people stay away from anything, esp. if someone hasn't asked my opinion. Now, if someone asks me about a specific question, what I will do is tell them what experiences I have had with that company. I tend to be more vocal about places I've had good experiences. I figure anyone can have a bad day and that maybe the day I had a bad experience was just an "off" day.... for either them or me!

Salad
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy having your picture made? Probably about 5. I don't try to stay away from the camera or hide from it, but I don't go out of my way to have pictures made. (Unless, of course, I happen to look drop-dead gorgeous... then take all the pictures you can so it can be proved that I don't always look like a stump monkey!)

Main Course
Besides a bookmark, what is something you've used to keep your place in a book? Just about everything and anything... a piece of tissue (unused, let me hasten to add!), an emory board, money, paper clips... whatever happens to be handy. Right now in the book I'm reading, Memory of a Mystery, by my friend Earl Staggs, I'm using a flattened box that something or other came in.

Dessert
Name a food that you like that most people don't. Spinach.

Olwen said...

Great feast but I like your soup the best.
Thanks for feasting with me.

Ma said...

I totally think your soup says it all. I like your dessert. I like those things too.

Thank you for stopping by.

Margaret said...

Great feast! I abhor your dessert though. Popeye couldn't even had made it taste better for me. I can stand it on pizza, lasanga or hangin' out mixed up with other dishes - but alone. I run for the hills. Take care and have a great weekend. -M

I made creamed spinach with goat's cheese the other day. Yum :-)

Loved your feast!

Jason said...

I can't get enough spinach sometimes. Especially creamed spinach at Boston Market. Yummy. If my experience is like anyone else's, the reason why I didn't like it before was that nasty canned spinach.

Connie and Rob said...

By the looks of your dessert you are going to grow up to be a very strong girl...I only like spinach in quiche and casseroles.

Take care,
Connie

Thanks for stopping by my feast.

Mmm...I like spinach.

Okay, Chocolate Gravy...It's one of those passed down from a great great grandma type of recipes,but I'll do my best.

1 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
1 T. flour
canned milk (can use any milk actually)
vanilla

Mix sugar, cocoa and flour. Slowly stir in milk (I can't tell you how much, at least 2 cups), heat over low, all sugar will dissolve and gravy will thicken up. You may need to add more milk. Once it's at the proper consistency remove from heat and add about 1 tsp. vanilla.

Serve hot over homemade buttered biscuits.

I really like the theme song from Rent but did not enjoy the movie. I *heart* spinach; but no one in the family will touch it.

Thanks for stopping by my table! Have a fab Friday.

I love spinach... though, in light of the latest e coli scare... maybe I should switch to broccoli.

Like Jason said, the creamed spinach at Boston Market is the bomb!

I love spinach!!! Spinach squares, dip, pizza, salad, etc., any way I can get it!

YellowRose said...

Great feast! I love Spinach, especially fresh spinach in my salads. Did you hear the news about fresh spinach and E Coli? There are reported cases of E Coli with bagged spinach. I'm not thrilled seeing I eat a spinach salad everyday!! So be careful!

Happy Friday!

Spinach isn't for me, though farina and eggs with noodles sounds pretty darn good too!

Thanks for dropping by, and yes, indeed, my picture is from the top of Blarney Castle in Ireland. We were there for a week on our honeymoon.

Have a great weekend.

I normally steam okra and eat it with shrimp paste. I haven't tried the fried version. Nice feast!
