Friday's Feast #164

Appetizer
When was the last time you were surprised?

Last month, in Italy, my friends surprised me with an early birthday and early Christmas present of a Tuscan cooking class: Italian Immersion. It lasted for like 8 hours, included an informative trip through the Mercato Centrale (Central Market) and all the people who took and/or gave the class were just perfect! It really was way fun!!! We learned about truffles, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, wines, pasta making, gnocchi making, we made lasagna, tiramisu, a black olive chicken dish, crustinis with sausage and cheese...it was truly a great time. The best surprise I can remember right now! This gift was so great, I think they have the next several birthdays and Christmas's taken care of!!!!!!

Soup
Fill in the blanks: My eyes are ________, but I wish they were __________.

I don't choose to complete this one, I like my amber eyes!! Well, I guess you could call them hazel or maybe amber? They are yellow sometimes and other times they seem to have browns and greens too.

Salad
If you were a Beanie Baby, what would you look like and what would your name be?

I wouldn't care because I'd have no brains, only stuffing. But I know what I would sing,

I could while away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers

Consultin' with the rain
And my head, I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'

If I only had a brain.

I'd unravel ev'ry riddle
For any individ'le
In trouble or in pain

With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'
You could be another Lincoln,
If you only had a brain.

Main Course
Name two things you consistently do that you consider to be healthy habits.

Eat food, and drink fluids.

Dessert
What brand of toothpaste are you using these days? Do you like it? Why or why not?

Ajax. No I don't like it because it's very harmful to my health and also it tastes bad. What kind of question is this? Who would choose to use toothpaste that they didn't like? (Aquafresh, yes, I like it because it cleans my teeth and tastes ok.)

Gnocchi! Yummm! I wish I knew how to make that instead of buying it frozen.
