Getting to know each other 2

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing a few of my culinary likes and dislikes a while ago and was thrilled that some of you did the same.  Thank you Cindy, TandyTesYvette and CannonD. I have put a few more fun questions together.  Again, I won’t be tagging anybody but it would be great if you would copy the questions and fill in your answers on your blog – just for a bit more fun. 🙂  Please link back to me so I don’t miss out on your answers.

1.  What 5 items are always in your fridge?

Milk, butter, eggs, cheese and hot English mustard.

2.  What 5 items are always in your pantry ?

Flour, sugar, oats, baking powder and cocoa.

3.  Do you write a grocery list or do you shop off the cuff?

I always make a list and I always buy more than what is on the list.

4.  What is the most used item/s in your kitchen?

Hands down it would have to be my mugs and kettle – I drink tea all day.

5.  What do you have in your kitchen that may seem strange to other people?

A basket of rose quartz

6.  If you were to enter a Come Dine With Me challenge, what would you cook?

Starter:  My nana’s wonderful carrot soup and melba toast

Mains:  Slow roast Greek lamb, mint jelly, roast vegetables, crispy roast potatoes and gravy

Dessert:  Crème Brûlée and vanilla coffee

Probably all too rich for one sitting but in theory its nice. 🙂

7.  If you could invite any 4 living people in the world to dinner, who would they be?

Nelson Mandela, Alison Botha, Johnny Depp and Dolly Parton.  Talk about a strange mix of people.

8.  What is your favourite breakfast out?

Eggs benedict at my friend Roy’s Rose Garden Tea House  – it is served on potato rosti with crispy bacon – THE BEST!

9.  What one condiment could you not be without?

Hot English mustard

10. Some people seemed to have a problem eating leftovers or reheated food, do you?

Absolutely not, sometimes reheated leftovers can be even nicer the next day.

    • Thanks Tanya – hmm, I have always just love rose quartz – I even carry a little piece in my makeup bag. 🙂 I love all crystals! Sorry that there is no romantic story attached to it. Have a super weekend. 🙂

  4. —O0000000h, Mandy,
    I forgot to do the other one!!! I shall place this on my blog tomorrow!
    I am such a DORK!
    I love the idea. I love Mandela. I love carrot soup. And honest, I make a great Crème Brûlée!
    Excuse me while I copy/ past this immediately!! xxxxxxxxxxx

  5. Mandy, This is great and so interesting to read what others keep in their pantry & frig! I’ve not seen this done before. I’d like to be invited to your dinner party if Johnny Depp is attending!!

  6. I’m coming over if you’re making crème brûlée! Seriously one of my favorite desserts. I could eat an entire ramekin by myself. I always buy more than what’s on my grocery list as well. It’s too tempting to buy more when walking down every aisle!

  7. Mr. N would love your basket of rose quartz. He’s got a sachet of that himself. He’s an avid little rock collector. 🙂 And your pantry sounds a lot like mine. 🙂 This was a fun list to read Mandy! Have a great rest of the weekend. 🙂
