Feast One Hundred and Thirty Four


What is your usual bedtime? Do you like that, or would you rather it be different?
***I am and have always been, a creature of the night. I go to bed sometime between 1 and 2:00 am. I'm okay with that. Because of my physical problems I sleep in my recliner and usually doze off to the music channel (Soundscapes). When I worked, it was usually 11:00 to bed and up at 5:45. UGH.


When it comes to advice, do you give more or receive more?
***Oh, is this an easy one! I am more than willing to receive but I am usually the giver, mainly because I'm the reader in the family.

Describe a memorable meal you've had.
***There have been so many! How to choose! Because my son-in-law, Doug, loved food so much, and was such a gourmand, I'd have to choose one of the meals we had in Maui. Doug always knew what to order when it came to seafood. We had dinner at a restaurant right on the waterfront one night and the food was heavenly! Fresh as fresh could possibly be and the presentation was perfect, like something in a gourmet magazine. Every bite was accompanied by an ummmm, and ooooooh. We call it having a "food orgasm." It was that good...

Main Course

Name a work of fiction that affected the way you think about something.
***Not surprisingly, this one is tough! Living in Kern Co., I should say "Grapes of Wrath," after all it's where a lot of the story takes place. But my pick would have to be "Christy," by Catherine Marshall, the wife of Rev. Peter Marshall, who was a Scottish Presbyterian minister who became the chaplain for the U.S. Senate in 1947. I love this story because it's about a young woman of privilege who gives up everything to go and live among the people of the beautiful Smokey Mountains.
Here's a link for the synopsis for Christy.


What is your favorite type of fruit juice?
***Iced cold Apple Cider.

I loved the book Christy. I had forgotten about it since I read it so long ago. It was a great read though.

Ooo, the words "ice cold apple cider" took me back to my childhood in Indiana when we used to go to the orchard and hand pick a bushel of apples. Then we'd go back to the shop and buy a gallon of fresh-pressed apple cider. Yum!

Thanks for the memories.

Another night owl! I've noticed that a lot of bloggers seem to be night owls.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Gracie. What a coincidence. I also go to bed around that time.

I love how you stated "food orgasm." By the sound of it, I'm sure it was a great meal worth remembering.

An iced cold apple cider sounds perfect for summer.

Thanks for visiting my feast. I appreciate the comment especially the last line. God bless.
