It's that time again...Time for some more "Grilling Goodness With Tina And Friends."
So, without further ado, I'll get right to the grilling.
1. What can cheer you up when you're feeling grumpy?
A lot of things can cheer me up...For instance a Starbucks Grande Mocha Frappuccino Light with no whip but a dome lid for Amy will definitely do the trick. Of course, a hug and a kiss from my sweet hubby always lifts my spirits, and I love nothing better than piling up on the couch with all 3 of my boys, watching something funny on television, and just laughing out loud. And last, but certainly not least, I always feel better after loving on my Allie Girl.
2. Give one feature that could make or break the deal if you were shopping for a new home.
We have always lived in the same house in Crazyville for our entire marriage, but if we were ever in the market for a new home, I would definitely not be interested in buying a house in which my bedroom or living room would be hanging off the side of the house like this one.
3. What's the craziest thing you've ever let your children eat for breakfast?
Don't judge. I gave them milk to drink with the Cheez Balls.
4. If you are a 'watch what you eat' kind of person, share a meal or dish that makes it easier to diet.
I don't understand the question.
I'm just teasing.;)
I'll share a recipe that Shannon and I like. And if you all are interested, I might make it in the near future and post about it...with step by step
It is called Tabbouleh. (Click here for the recipe.) Shannon and I like to add some chicken to it also, to give it a little more bulk. It's a very tasty and filling meal, but it does not have a lot of calories.
5. Is there something you used to do as a child that you would never let your children do now?
When my best friend and I were growing up, we used to love to play restaurant. Taco Bell specifically. We would gather up magnolia leaves to be our taco shells. Flower bed soil would serve as our ground beef. Lettuce was whatever weeds we could get our hands on. And our cheese came in the form of marigolds (however many we could steal without getting caught).
Of course, back in the day, that was all good, (sort of) clean fun. With the exception of one thing. Seeing as how we were running a restaurant and everything, we had to have a counter top available to serve all of our customers. And since we were forced to play outside, there were obviously no counter tops just lying around, so we had to use whatever we could find.
After searching around, this is what we came up with.
We just flipped the lid for the garbage can over and used it as our serving area.
Can you imagine? I should probably point out, that it was not a sparkly clean garbage can like the one that you see in this picture. It was a nasty one that was full of that weeks garbage. But we used it every single time we played Taco Bell.
If you want to stop reading this blog now, I completely understand.
6. If you have a daughter, are her ears pierced? When did you allow it?
Well, I do have one daughter, my favorite Allie Girl, but I'm pretty certain we will never get her ears pierced.
But since I am a girl, I can tell you when I got my ears pierced, I was about 14 years old. My best friend's sister was a nurse for a plastic surgeon in Crazyville, so she brought home the ear piercing gun from work and pierced my ears in my best friend's bedroom.
Oh, don't act so shocked! It was all perfectly safe and legitimate. And since I am one of those kind of girls that likes to get all the pain over with very quickly, she went ahead and gave me two holes in each ear. My mom was a little shocked when I came home with four new earrings in my ears.....But over time, she learned to love them.;)
7. Are you the only person in your house who changes the TP roll??
Excuse me, you mean other people can change it? Uhhhh, I did not know that, but I will be letting three people know about this mind breaking concept as soon as I finish typing this post!
8. How old were you when you no longer lived with a parent(s) for the first time?
I can't remember exactly, but I was about nineteen or twenty when I moved out to Crazyville with Shannon.
