Seven (Slightly Odd) Things You May Not Know About Me!

Amy of Gluten Free Living, Melanie of The Gluti Girls…and a guy!, and Sophie of Flour Arrangements all tagged me for the same meme “Seven Things You May Not Know About Me”.  Hmmm, now that I think about it, Sophie’s meme was “Ten Things You May Not Know About Me”, but being as mathematically challenged as I am, we’ll round down to seven!

1) “Frisky” the pet gerbil came into my life when I was six years old.  Always the imaginative one, I tried to dress him up like the Hamburglar (you know, from McDonald’s).  Apparently I tied the Hamburglar cape too tightly and Frisky bit the living daylights out of me.  Frisky promptly went back to the pet store.

2) I ate a peanut butter sandwich EVERY DAY from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  I was not a very adventurous eater.  Well, except for #4.

3) I have naturally curly hair.  It is not a perm.  It is not a chia pet.  Nor will you find lost items you are looking for within my large hair.

4) I ate a Milk Bone dog biscuit when I was five just to see what it tasted like.  For the record, it was disgusting.

5) I have never lived “In The Valley”, but use the words “like, totally, and omigod” on a very regular basis.

6) I have been a “vegetarian” for 18 years.  Well, except for bacon.  I LOVE bacon so much I couldn’t give it up.  Therefore, bacon comes from the Bacon Tree in our house.

7)  I am a Reality TV Show junkie.  I’ve watched every season of The Real World, Rock of Love with Brett Michaels, and Real Housewives of Orange County/New York City/Atlanta.  I always take Purell bath and get my tetanus shot after viewing the wondrous nastiness!

So now I’m going to tag seven gluten free bloggers who are ridiculously fabulous.  Have you checked out their blogs?  You won’t be disappointed!

Tag! Five Fav Kitchen Tools

I used to love the game of tag as a kid.  Freeze Tag, Cartoon Tag, Flashlight Tag; you name it and we probably played it!  The lovely Rachel (creator of the very delish Blueberry Pizza recipe) at The Crispy Cook tagged little ol’ me for a fun meme on my Five Favorite Kitchen Tools. I am not only a celiac but kitchen-aphobic (ok, not really a word), so my five favs are a bit of a long stretch. Tiffany at Make Mine Gluten Free had two hysterical favs – a fork and her microwave… My kind of cook!

What is a meme, you ask?  So did I (I thought Rachel was calling me a dirty word), but found that a meme is basically series of questions that a blogger answers to share some personal perspective or experience on random topics.

FYI, Rachel’s kitchen favs are her aloe plant, measuring glass, swivel peeler, orange frying pan, and wooden spoon.

Maureen’s Five Favorite Kitchen Tools

Fav #1:  My Avocado Pitter/Slicer.  Yes, a knife and spoon do work just as well, but I LOVE this tool!  I consume a lot of avocados, so my pitter/slicer comes in very handy.

Fav #2:  My Cuisinart Waffle Maker.  Oooh, this contraption rocks!  I use it to make my yummy Pumpkin Waffles.

Fav #3:  My collection of Depression Glass Reamers.  Ok, I admit this is not a tool that I actually use, but someone juiced something on these reamers.  Probably back in 1910, but it counts!

Fav #4:  My Peppercorn Cracker Thing.  Don’t you just love going to a restaurant where the waiter comes to your table and asks you (in a snooty voice), “Fresh ground pepper?”.  I rarely ever use salt, but pepper pretty much goes on everything.

Fav #5:  Clorox Wipes.  I have a sick, twisted perchance for cleaning.  Cleaning is my therapy.  When the going gets tough, I enjoy a good Clorox wiping of anything that is not nailed down.  Enough said 🙂

To keep this lovely meme a-goin’, I am tagging Gluten Free Gwen, Ellen at I Am Gluten Free, and Gluten Free Steve.
