Ahhh, the last day of the challenge. I’m going to miss it, it’s been fun! Not only answering the questions but having material to write about with out having to think of subject matter. Working on next years calender so I will be more prepared…so wish me luck!

Weird quirk of mine…a peculiar trait, in other words. Hmmmmm, literally cannot think of anything. I may have to defer to the one blogger that knows me personally, and get back to you.

My Dad would say I talk too fast. That’s all I got, seriously.

Ok, I’m back after conferring with my hubby and he said, “Well, you are kinda anal about some things.” Now, I don’t know if being anal qualifies as quirky, but what he’s talking about is how once I set a place for something, unless I’m the one that moves it, I expect it to stay in said place! There’s also my dish issue-the one where I lose my mind if someone puts dirty dishes on the clean side! But that sounds a little more like a small case of OCD than quirky, does it not?

Anyway, me and my quirks, such as they are, will see all of you, bright and maybe not so early next year!! Love you all and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Be safe and have a wonderful time tonight everyone!

Favorite comfort food? Um, you all remember I’m Paleo, right? Well, if we’re talking about since I became that way, I guess it would have to be sweet potatoes, baked on the grill and dripping with  grass-fed butter. I could eat them every day, I love em so much!

But if you’re talking about all time, before I started living the life of a cavewoman, my favorite comfort food was my mother’s roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans. Of course, her fried chicken came in a close second…I have never been able to duplicate her method, my breading always fell off and burned in the pan, but hers came out golden brown and delicious and usually got paired with some mashed potatoes and gravy or some yummy mac and cheese.

Ok, hang on, I just thought of something I really miss. Does that mean it was my all time comfort food, maybe. Anyway, it’s bread. Yep, I gotta be honest here…dinner rolls, sandwiches, hamburgers, garlic bread- how do you eat spaghetti without it? Well, you learn but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss it. I used to love a plain old bologna sandwich with mayo, soft and delicious with some potato chips on the side. Mmmm. Or how about those sourdough buns Jack uses on that famous burger of his. Ok, I have to stop talking about this, it’s making me hungry! I long for the days I could go eat a warm waffle, dripping with syrup and butter at that place with the best coffee in the world, Waffle House.

I don’t get any of that anymore, and honestly, the breads I make with my nut flours just don’t measure up- so, I just avoid those kind of carbs in my life and try to make do and act like bread doesn’t exist. Give me a steak, salad and a sweet potato and I’m a happy girl.

So that was the long version…what are your favorite comfort foods? I will have to live vicariously through you guys, lol. For me, I’m off to eat breakfast, probably an egg or two,  plan my editorial calendar for next year and get my house ready for our New Year’s party. Have a good day everyone, I’ll be waiting to hear from you!

What are the top things on my bucket list?

Well, believe it or not, I want to skydive (tandem of course) but I’m still afraid at my age I might have a heart attack! And then there’s my neck problems. So….don’t know if I’ll ever get to that one.

Travel the United States or at least go to a few I’ve always dreamed of visiting. Since I’m a huge Stephen King fan, Maine is one of those states. I’ve also heard that Arkansas and Tennessee are beautiful. I’ve never seen the Blue Ridge Mountains or the Grand Canyon.

I want to go somewhere tropical like Belize, or Hawaii.  Of course, any of the islands would do…St Thomas, St John or St Croix would be my choice since that’s all of really heard others talk about other than Mexico.

I missed my shot at seeing Slipknot in concert, so there’s that.

I want to retire with my husband and move to Port Aransas or the Florida Keys or North Carolina…someplace with a beach we’d be happy!

That is all I can come up with, I know, limited imagination, inability to dream big, sorry-its all I got!

Whats on your bucket lists? Can’t wait to hear it! See y’all mañana from a very warm patio! 😎
