Meet Me on Monday



Meet Me on Monday is sponsored by Java of the Over 40 Bloggers and is a great way for folks to learn more about each other.

Questions are posted on Sunday and the bloggers post their answers on Monday.

Get it? Meet Me on Monday ...

Here goes:

Questions:

1. What is your favorite pasta dish?
2. What is the last thing you do before going to bed?
3. How many nights a week do you go out to eat?
4. Are you an avid book reader?
5. Would you rather have x-ray vision or bionic hearing?

My Answers:

1. My favorite pasta dish? I love ALL pasta dishes. I made a spaghetti alla puttanesca which I loved but the kids hated. Why? Because there is no meat in it. It's spicy and tangy with tomatoes, olives, garlic, anchovies, capers. It's quick and easy and I don't even care that the name literally translates into "whore's spaghetti".



2. The last thing I do before going to bed is to brush my teeth.

3. When I was part of a couple, I would eat out at least twice a week. Now, I may get out two or three times a month.

4. Yes! I am an avid book reader. There is nothing better than reading a good book. I just finished The Girl Who Fell From the Sky, by Heidi Durrow. Highly recommend this one.

5. X-ray vision or bionic hearing? Probably x-ray vision. I may see some things that I never wanted to see but if I had to hear everything that everyone was saying all the time, I'd blow my brains out.

Hi Chele! Don't be in a hurry to get to where you don't HAVE to cook for the kids. It comes all to quickly and you'll miss the 'chore' of providing for them.

Totally agree with you about having to hear what everyone says all the time. I treasure the silence.

The funny thing about Puttanesca is that it's named that way because it's so easy to make, but tastes like it's not. If a woman was stepping out on her husband, she could get her groove on, make the puttanesca sauce, and serve it up for dinner and the husband thinks she's been spending all this time cooking this wonderful meal.

That pasta dish looks delicious! You know, until your answer for the last question, I hadn't really thought about how much I'd really really rather not hear people say...

I'm with you on the bionic hearing. I love to read too, I might have to check out the book you recommended.

That pasta dish looks really good! My family would insist on meat too :)

I have seen that book on other blogs - might have to pick it up. Haven't read a book for a couple of weeks now, need to get at it again.

I like your answers as well ;-)

I agree with you on #5 but I figured with x-ray vision I wouldn't ever "see" anything 'cause I'd be looking through everything.....I wonder if we could trade one in for the other if we were dissastified....
