Meme about Me


The ladies of [Eating Club] Vancouver tagged with a meme and I thought it would be fun to get maybelle's dad to answer the questions. Afterall, he is but a vague spector on this blog though a major force in the kitchen. HE likes to call himself a literary device because he seems to only be in the post if it helps the story. Hey, what can I say? I love to spin a yarn.

LOL - brilliant. Loved comparing the 2 sets of answers, and I would do exactly the same thing as you if I ever found my self to be unexpectedly very wealthy :)

TS of eatingclub vancouver said...

I had to look up kesar pisa: so, saffron & cumin? Is that correct? or is it the kesar mango?

Also, CURLING!! Hahaha... I've curled twice in my life. I really enjoyed it. But I can't get anybody else to go try it again with me. The interest is *VERY* low, I must say. ;D

"Favorite smell = Maybelle"

Lori said...

maybelles mom said...

OhioMom: looking forward to yours.

Natasha: thanks.

Alexa: glad to hear that.

Jeanne: thanks. and thanks for visiting.

_ts of [eatingclub] vancouver: oh saffron pistachio is so good... and thanks for tagging me it was fun.

Lori: It is saffron pistachio. Try it b/c it is delicious.
