Direct from Jodi's mouth...uh, fingers: "Since the Friday's Feast Chef has been out of the kitchen for quite some time (and may be for a while yet), I have decided to start my own version until he/she is able to return. I am calling it
It is generally the same idea, with just a little twist. Feel free to play along for some yummy fun! I will post a new one each Thursday afternoon for those that are on a different time zone. JOIN IN!!!"
If you were to choose a new name for yourself what would it be and why? Were there any other names your parents almost gave you?
As far as I know, my parents never considered any other names from me... my actual name is Judith Ann, but I've been Judy so long I think I'm in trouble when I hear "Judith Ann." I AM thinking about using that for my writing name, though. After reading Anne of Green Gables, I always wanted to change my middle name to Anne... maybe I'll do that for my writing name. What do y'all think? Who should I be when I write?
And, if I were to choose a new name for myself now? Probably still something that starts with J. I like J-names :-)
How do you usually spend your Sunday afternoons?
I always cook for Sunday night dinners. We tried doing the after church dinner, but Mama got out of church at one time, and we got out of church at another. So, it evolved into Sunday night instead. Our church doesn't have evening service and Mama's gotten to where she doesn't like driving at night. Other than that, it's pretty lazy.
What would be your last meal if you were about to walk the green mile?
I agree with Jodi's answer...that would be tough. I like her idea of having a taste of everything I really enjoy, but don't get often. That would include soft bread, right out of the oven, and butter. (Don't need to worry about calories or fat, after all). Then, I think, an Oyster Po'Boy from The Grill in Apalachicola. That's to die for. And maybe so coconut shrimp from Red Lobster. For dessert (if I could hold any more) something chocolate and decadent.
Have you ever broken any bones? Nope... knock on wood. I do have a fairly fresh scar on my leg though :-)
Recipe for this Week (instead of your recipe for life - what is it for just this week?)
My recipe for this week is organization. My life is in desperate need of being organized. I'm starting on that by concentrating on one thing at a time (writing one day, editing one day, LASR one day) but I need to filter in my housework and chores too. Not to mention outside work.
Let me know if you decide to play along... now I'm off to visit a few other participants. That is, until I have to get ready to go to work.
