1. In the USA this coming Sunday millions will be watching as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49's in the Superbowl. What was the last event you attended that could be described as super?
Well, this wasn't the last event (I don't think ~smile~) that I attended that was super, but as soon as I read this question this was what came to my mind immediately. 39 years ago this March 7th, I attended my very first Elvis Concert. I was a mere 22 years old and I was sillier than a goose about this concert. A friend and I went together and we even went by the hotel where he was staying and tried our darnest to get a peek of him coming out of his room. My heart raced all day just thinking about the concert that evening. The concert was all I expected and more. What an entertainer! I made an Elvis Scrapbook after the event and still have it to this day. It is full of all things Elvis and I can just see my kids scratching their heads when I am gone wondering why on earth Momma had an Elvis Scrapbook. It's the stuff that life is made up of and at the age of 22 that was a super event in my life. And, the $12 for the ticket was a real issue for me and Hubby. ~what a fun memory~
2. Share something you're a fan of these days?
Since shortly after PBS started the series Downton Abbey I began hearing rave reviews about the show. I kept thinking I would start watching it but just never did. Well, the chatter continued on and it got the best of me. It's all over FB, Twitter and the general conversation of many and I decided that I had to jump on board this past week. Of course, I knew it would be best if I watched Season I and II but decided that I just did not want to take the time for that. So, I downloaded the PBS app on my IPad and I've watched the first 3 episodes of this season, Season III. I'm sure I've missed a lot of the history but I feel like I'm caught up and I'm already a huge fan. Can I just say that I absolutely love, the fashions, the accents, the landscape, the furnishings and all the family drama. Hats off to the producer of such a great hit! Added note - since writing this entry a few hours ago I have downloaded Hulu to my Ipad and now I have started watching Season I. I decided I had to go back and see the history behind this family and I figure it will help me to understand some of the happenings that are going on now. Stay tuned~~~~
Well, I've never had one and think I could live the rest of my life without them. I don't know for sure, but if they are like regular chicken wings, then they would not be worth the effort to pick the meat off. But, seems that someone told me that they are not like regular chicken wings, but I'll just stick with Chicken Tenders and I will take the hot seasoning. I guess I just showed my ignorance about chicken wings. ~shame on me~
5. What's a question you hate to be asked?
I started playing tennis in 1983 and played for about 15 years. I enjoyed every minute of playing and while I was never a great player, I was a good player. Our daughter began playing when she was in Jr. High school and began playing competitively on the state level. This was a huge commitment for her and for me and at that time, my tennis game went by the wayside. I intended on getting back with it, but that didn't happen. Many folks had quit playing in the meantime and there just wasn't much interest from anyone, so I laid my racket down and haven't picked it up since. ~boo on me~
Do you ever see something on Pinterest that just looks so delicious that you have to make it right away? Well, I did that yesterday. I saw these Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Dreams and decided that I would make them. They are made with Grans biscuits, cinnamon sugar and cream cheese and are simple, simple. You can find this recipe and many others here. They smelled so good as they were baking but when I bite into one, I was so disappointed. They were good, just not nearly as good as I had "dreamed" they would be. But, they do look good and I guess that's worth something. ~chuckle~
