Monday! The day after the only television shows I watch (cannot live without Masterpiece Theater!) ..and Share Your World. Here we go then…….
What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? Moo Shou Beef : Lots of weird looking veggies that I can’t identify, strips of lean beef, all in an amazing brown sauce and wrapped up in a rice pancake. Sort of Chinese Mexican food!
Are you focused on today or tomorrow? Ummmmmmmmmm, huh? I LIVE in today but always have an eye on the future. One of the things that occur after a person has been either very poor, or without a home..we become long-range planners. It can’t be simply about today. Oh there’s the what am I going to eat or feed the kids, and where am I going to sleep stuff that is the daily grind of the homeless or poor. BUT, Once you again have a home, once you are back in the ranks of people that “have enough” you plan for the long term. So, I guess the answer is………BOTH!
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
Can I ask two of them? There’s one on Daddy’s side and one on my Mother’s side I have questions for. So, in typical Suze fashion, I am taking a left turn and asking two!
First, Dad’s GGGGGGF……How did you feel when forced to renounce your Judaism and become a Catholic or face torture and imprisonment? Did your wife and children feel the same? How did you feel about the “Church” afterward? Why did you maintain the Catholic Church ties when you emigrated to England? Did you practice your true faith in secret?
and for Mother’s GGM: What was it like to be raised in a Native American village being half black and half Native? Were you discriminated against? When did you decide to “pass”? What were the biggest difficulties “passing” for white before and during your marriage to a white man? Did he know about your background?
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. an overabundance of green peppers.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but it was having an extreme overabundance of green peppers that made me research recipes for them and test them on unsuspecting friends and family.
I have given so many of the buggers to neighbors that they shriek and shove a cross in my face when I appear with another gallon baggie of them, so I had to find something to do with them. Roasted pepper, gruyere and thousand island dressing on rye, anyone?
