  1. Good to know more about you – but how to pick just ONE favourite food 😦 Had to smile – dinner here in Spain is about 10.30pm. Took me a while to get used to it!

    • Maybe you could pick one group of food πŸ˜‰ I remember you mentioning about the late eating – guess we would get used to it if we had to. When we were invited out on the island by the French, we used to have a snack before going because they also eat extremely late – when you go for dinner you arrive at 20h30 for 21h00 and then the first course would usually be served around 10pm and dessert just before midnight. Pete and I are ready for bed before the first course. hee hee. Have a happy weekend. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Nami, I appreciate you taking the time out while you are away to leave a comment, thank you. I am looking forward to hearing about your fun time with your Mom. Have a happy weekend. πŸ™‚

  2. Mandy, this is so great. I will do it on Sunday night because we are going to the beach this weekend πŸ™‚ Have a beautiful weekend!

  3. It’s funny before Miss A was born I would have said savoury all the way. Since she was born…I have a sweet tooth like I never had before. πŸ™‚

  4. Hey Mandy; hope things have settled in well at home. Have missed seeing you around! πŸ™‚ This is a fun idea and I enjoyed getting to know more about you.

    • Hi MamaSteph, nice of you to stop by and thanks for your concern – things are mostly in place and back up and running now – just waiting on a new oven that is on order. Glad you enjoyed the read. It’s always fun doing these kinds of posts. Have a happy day. πŸ™‚

  7. I love it, Mandy! I absolutely want to do it! Don’t you really like rhubarb?!?! I love it. I’ve just published a rhubarb post, but I’m afraid you won’t appreciate it… πŸ˜›

    • Hi Rita, I am thrilled that you are going to do it, thank you! Hmm, the rhubarb thing is a mystery as everybody in my family loves it as does Pete. Maybe I will brave up and give it another try when it’s in store again. Have a happy day. πŸ™‚
