E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #15

Amy is our hostess for the Sunday Rambles. you can find out more and join in here

This week’s topic is “Kitchen and Food“.
There are alternate questions for those that do not do much in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy the ramble!

Here are the questions:

  1. When you are in the kitchen cooking (or cleaning), do you have anything playing in the background (i.e.,TV, music, Julia Childs, etc.) while you are completing your tasks? If you are not someone who cooks or does chores in your kitchen, think of another chore or task. While you are doing that task, do you have anything going on in the background?
    It’s been a long time since I had music playing in the background when I did anything as these days I prefer to work in silence.
  2. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten that someone cooked for you?
    Cow Pie, but it was not weird at all, just bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes topped with pastry. Very yummy actually.
  3. Thinking of that weird food, did you like it enough to eat it again or get the recipe?
    My pastry is not one of my better skills, so we’d just have a fry up.
  4. What’s the food you usually refuse to share?
    I’m happy to share most things, but I do like cheesecake and if I make one, I tend to give over half of it away as Hubby can’t eat it and I couldn’t eat a whole one…….. well, maybe!
  5. Do you use recipes when you cook, or do you have your own way of cooking the food that you love? If you are not the person who cooks in your household, pick a task that has directions/instructions. Do you follow the directions or put them to the side?
    We have favourite dishes that never turn out the same twice. I don’t measure quantities and just throw everything together. It usually works.
  6. Bonus: Pick three smells in your kitchen that make you happy when you smell them.
    Frying bacon, fresh bread, and fruit cake.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hey Di 🙂 I love the food memes at the top along with your answers! The boyfriend one was hilarious to me. I have never smelled fruitcake baking. I imagine it would smell amazing though. 😀 Thanks for rambling with me 🙂
