I've Been Tagged- So I Guess That I'm It

I was tagged by the Mom Chef.  This is a "game" of Tag, and when you have been tagged, you have to answer eight worldly questions, if you choose.  Then you get to "tag" eight of your blogger friends to answer eight of  your worldly questions. this is just a fun way to learn more about the blogs and the blogger behind the screen.

 These are the questions I was given to answer.
1. What's the best live event (concert, comedian, etc.) that you've ever attended and when/why?
     I went to a Neil Diamond concert the Saturday after 9/11 in Chicago. It was so moving and emotional    because of what our country had just been through.  I will never forget that concert.

2. If you were given the opportunity to cook alongside any one professional chef, who would it be?            
    I would like to cook with Rick Bayless

3.When you were growing up, what did you want to be? Are you doing that? If not, what?
    I wanted to be a teacher.  I did teach before I had my family, but I'm retired now and blogging:)

4. If your house was on fire, what one item would you grab from the kitchen to save?
     I would save my Kitchen Aid stand mixer.

5.  Coke or Pepsi? Coke

6. How many years have you been friends with the person you've known the longest?
     My parents were friends with a couple who had three girls and the middle girl was my age and we joke       that we have known each other since before we were born, and that would be 62 yrs.

7. What food dish do you consider the most daunting and have not yet gotten up the courage to attempt it yet?  That would be anything baked with yeast.  I have made King cake with yeast, and it did turn out. The fast rising yeast speeds up the process a bit. I just need more practice with yeast.

8. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    I would be my Cockapoo, Bailey, because she is spoiled rotten.  She naps several times a day, and is most happy when she is on our bed with the pillows and  blankets.  She is a "Princess", but so adorable.  She has a great life with a one acre yard to play in and chase the deer and squirrels. She sits and looks out the windows to survey her "kingdom" and bark at the birds.  Such a life.
.
    Here are my 8 questions for you to answer:
1) Who is the person that has inspired you the most in your life, and why?
2) What is your favorite Family activity, besides cooking or eating?
3) What is the last book or magazine that you read?
4) What is your favorite color?
5) What do you do for your "me" time?
6) Who if your BFF, and why?
7) What is your favorite go-to dish to cook or bake?
8) What is your favorite utensil or gadget in your kitchen, that you could not live without?

  5. Hi Becky
    I'm sorry I haven't been in touch but my life was interrupted with a brief stay in hospital. I will try to participate but sitting at the computer is a little uncomfortable at the moment.

    Please don't worry about it. Just get well. I completely empathize with you, because I've been having health issues of my own. HUGS!
