I love this new SHARE YOUR WORLD LOGO. It symbolizes the new SHARE YOUR WORLD CHALLENGE.  That is the challenge where Melanie asks some questions and in answering them we all share your worlds a little bit.

Here are this week’s questions and my answers.

What’s the biggest screw up in the kitchen that you were responsible for?

I come from a restaurant family. We ate more meals at the Old Traveler’s (my family’s diner) than at home. I started washing dishes at 15 and waiting tables at 17. As a young adult I was moved by my father behind the stove.

One of my worst screw ups came just weeks before my wedding. My mind was definitely not in the kitchen in those days.

One of my responsibilities as the cook was to bake the sausage loafs we were famous for. I had the recipe and process committed to memory. Memory failed that day. I skipped the step of putting in the spices and ended up baking 60 pounds of unseasoned pork loaf.  Dad was less than pleased


What, in your opinion, makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

There are no theories. It really is a conspiracy.


In 40 years what will people be nostalgic for?

America. Oh that was a bit dire. Let’s try again. The Arctic Circle? Fossil Fuel? Hawaii? California? Breathable air? Yeah this just isn’t getting any better.

 


Is a hot dog a sandwich?  cartoon hot dog character with mustard clipart

Ummmm. I think it is kind of like unseasoned pork loaf.

Endow the king with your justice, O God,
    the royal son with your righteousness.
May he judge your people in righteousness,
    your afflicted ones with justice.

May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,
    the hills the fruit of righteousness.
May he defend the afflicted among the people
    and save the children of the needy;
    may he crush the oppressor.

Psalm 72:1-4

What do the mountains signify in this Psalm?

I will praise you with the harp
    for your faithfulness, my God;
I will sing praise to you with the lyre,
    Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips will shout for joy
    when I sing praise to you—
    I whom you have delivered.
24 My tongue will tell of your righteous acts
    all day long,
for those who wanted to harm me
    have been put to shame and confusion. Psalm 71: 22-24

What do shame and confusion have to do with each other?
