fill in the blanks friday

***Disclaimer*** I have no idea why there are 3 different fonts used. I have no control over it, tried to fix it and understand that it is somewhat annoying. Thanks for understanding.


1. Today for breakfast I ate
Vanilla Special K with some walnuts sprinkled on top. I think I have developed a walnut allergy, as my mouth is all of a sudden starting to swell up. I've been teaching all week and it is somewhat difficult to talk.

2. My go to/never fail recipe chicken spaghetti or chicken cordon bleu.

3. Something I eat that other people think is weird is I'm not really sure. Actually, I thought of an answer - my mom used to make this orange jello that has pineapples and celery in it. It is really good. Also, we used to have this dinner that was basically potatoes, hot dogs and celery in a cream sauce - DELISH. All of my sister in laws hate it (April nicknamed it "Hobo Casserole"), but my siblings and I love it. That is one of the joys of growing up poor - you enjoy all sorts of creative dishes. (Except beets. Don't care for the beets.)

4. My worst cooking disaster ever was well, one time we put queso in the microwave for what we thought was three minutes.... but it was actually 30 mintues. Not good.

5. If I could only eat one flavor of ice cream the rest of my life it would be peppermint stick. Although i also really enjoy any ice cream that has marshmallow cream in it. Come to think of it, I would trade ice cream for marshmallow creme.

6. One food I hate and avoid at all costs is well, beets - obviously. Also, I have not yet acquired a taste for menudo. I don't mind the broth, but the slimy tripe pretty much grosses me out.

7. What is your favorite meal? Breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Not breakfast. I prefer sleep, but am trying to eat breakfast for health reasons. My favorite meal is probably dinner, especially a long, relaxed meal with loved ones. Doesn't matter what we eat - it is more about the conversation and company to me.

I hope the swelling went down. I bet almonds would be good in that special k. Yum.

Well, at least the jello didn't have beets in it.

Oh! Please share the chicken spaghetti recipe! Sounds great! I will pass on the "hobo casserole" though. ;)

Chicken spaghetti is my stand-by, too! That and baked ziti. As for the 30-minute Queso...that totally sounds like something I would do.

Mom's jello had shredded carrots in it, too... ew. Never got that one, but I DID relish some hot dog casserole...
