  1. I am so not a creme brulee person but I am told my pastry chef husband makes phenomenal creme brulee.

  2. Lucky you! In your shoes I'd be demanding it every Sunday :-)

  3. I stole this from Dade, also. It was fun reading your answers. Hugs.

  4. I am with you on The Shawshank Redemption and I Know This Much Is True. They are both listed in my blog as favorites. I am currently reading Wally Lamb's book The Hour I First Believed. Almost finished it.
    We eat tomatoes almost every day throughout the summer and even lots of hothouse ones through the rest of the year.
    Up at 6:00 or earlier every day and I don't have to be.What's up with that.
    Nice to get to know you better. I listed 25 things about me on my site and it was really hard to come up with them.

  5. Cool Lori and you probably also like Margaret Attwood too - she's a compatriot of yours. Brilliant writer. I haven't read that Lamb book but I do also love 'She's come undone'.


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
