What's In A Name

A couple weeks ago, Laane tagged me with this meme.  I’ve been um…a little slow responding to it.  So, as this is supposed to be cooking week (and I’m just barely getting a post in today) I’m going to try to relate me middle name to cooking.  Let’s see if I can do it…this should be interesting!

The Rules:

  1. You have to post the rules before you give the facts.
  2. You must list one fact that is relevant to your life for each letter in your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name than use a name that you like.
  3. When you are tagged you must write a post containing your own middle name game facts.
  4. At the end of your post you must tag one person for each letter in your middle name.. Don’t forget to comment them telling that they are tagged and to read your post to get the rules.

M~ Mom knows best. Everything I learned about cooking came from her.  Well, I did take a semester of Home Economics in 7th grade.  The only thing I really remember about that was being laughed at because I was using the pan scrubber to scrub the carrots…just the way my mother did!

A~Anchovies.  Shaun once went on an anchovies kick.  He decided that they belonged on every Caesar salad, every pizza and every cracker he came across.  Then he decided that the entire family should love them too.  So every time he had anchovies he would pester and implore us to try one. He even resorted to offering a hundred dollars to anyone that would sample just one tiny anchovy. Finally, sick of listening to him, I popped it in my mouth.  Shaun’s look of astonishment was worth every moment of salty slime in my mouth.  Come to think of it…I never collected my money…

R~(I can bake) Really good cookies.  One time, on a cold rainy day out selling Girl Scout Cookies with my troop, my co-leader just shook her head at all the “no thanks” we were getting for our product.  Her theory was that everyone bought cookies, so they should just buy from our girls.  I just looked at her in puzzlement…it never occurred to me that people really bought cookies…I always make them and couldn’t see why folks would want to buy them!

I~Inattentive.  I think my biggest problem in the kitchen is that I’m so easily distracted.  I don’t really take the time to measure things well.  I don’t always remember to set the timer.  (and if I do, I don’t always respond as quickly as I should) Cooking just seems like a lot of work, for very short lived result.  I might as well just feed everyone PB&J…it gets the job done.

E~Eggs. One of favorite way to cook eggs (not for the vegan in the house) is boiled omelets.  In a quart size freezer Ziploc break two eggs and add your favorite goodies.  Boil for 13 minutes (I had to look up the real time as I tend to wing it) and you have created a perfect omelet!

OK, it may not all be about cooking, but it’s got some sort of food in each letter! Now, I’m supposed to tag some folks.  Um…I hate this part.  Let’s see…I pick YOU!!!

Tomorrow we’ll talk about my issues with rice. (what you don’t have issues???)
