Since the Friday's Feast Chef has been out of the kitchen for quite some time (and may be for a while yet), I have decided to start my own version until he/she is able to return. I am calling it
Food 4 Thought Friday
What is your first thought when you wake up?
"What time is it?" Once in a while I will panic that I overslept as soon as I wake up. It's usually about 5:30 a.m. and so I try and go back to sleep if I am not going to the gym that day.
If you could go out to lunch with any three people (real of fictitious/ from any time period, dead or alive) , which three people would you choose and why?
My first choice would be Jesus Christ. The reason for that is obvious. My second choice would be either Condoleeza Rice or Eleanor Roosevelt because I have admired both of them for their courage, wisdom, and poise in the public arena. And it would be fun to hear a few of the White House secrets! Third is a huge toss up. I just can't decide! It would be between Benjamin Franklin (because he was amazing!), Princess Di (because I think we would click), Gandhi, Mother Teresa, (to be inspired by them), or Edward Cullen (to see what he is really like even though he is fictitious), or Johnny Depp (again obvious reasons!) I might want to chat with Santa for a bit though too and ask him why I really didn't get what I wanted for Christmas last year!
What is your favorite restaurant and what do you like the most on the menu?
The Old Spaghetti Factory. My favorite thing is the Spaghetti with half browned butter and Mizithra cheese and half meat sauce. Ooooohh! So heavenly! The Spumoni ice cream for dessert is superb too!
What do you usually think about right before you fall asleep?
"Why didn't I get to bed earlier!" And whatever has been weighing on my mind that day.
Recipe for this Week (instead of your recipe for life - what is it for just this week?)
I have been watching the Olympics this week and I think it would have to be the fact that we are strong as human beings and can achieve our dreams if we really and truly want to sacrifice what it takes to do so. Anything is possible if your mind is in it.
To play along go here ~ haha!
