1. How do you eat your eggs?
Ben and I both eat eggs any way you can make them. And we eat a lot of them since both of our parents raise chickens! Our favorite ways are either sunny side up, or scrambled, depending on what they will be accompanying. Sandwich usually gets scrambled, though occasionally fried. Grits almost always get fried & runny. If it’s just eggs a-la-carte, they’ll most always be scrambled with cheese. I actually have a recipe from a new Russian cookbook we got for Christmas that I’m planning to make this week called Browned Eggs… it involves making a special kind of deviled egg and then, I think, pouring more egg over it and baking it. It sounded interesting, so I got the ingredients last night to give it a try!
2. Do you volunteer?
Neither of us have volunteered since college… well, unless you count volunteering my time for a photo auction when we lived in Charlotte. I’d like to do something, sometime.
3. What’s your favorite brand of jeans?
I have 3 pairs of jeans that I love… a skinny ankle jean by Citizens of Humanity, a nice super soft bootcut by Hudson, and a basic workhorse kind of jean by Silver. Ben loves both of his 7 for all Mankind and often refuses to wear his old ratty jeans even around the house and he also loves his corduroy and Lucky Jeans. I’ll amuse you with a pic of me modeling new jeans after a major shopping trip as you might gather from all the white tags…
4. What was your first word?
Wasn’t everyone’s first word something along the lines of ma-ma, da-da? Apparently I also said “see” a lot.
5. Can you french braid?
Only coarse, thick, or curly hair. I used to do mine all the time at night to get waves, but now anytime I try I lose patience. Ben can’t even regular braid, lol.
6. Do you prefer wide rule, college rule, or blank paper?
College rule for me.
7. Is there a specific treat you always make during the holidays?
No, though I was inspired this year by visiting a friend who had made about 25 different types of cookies! Next year. Just wait.
8. Do you have a KitchenAid mixer? Do you want one?
Eh, I have a Cuisinart stand mixer and have never used it. I think the only reason I’d want one is for the pasta attachment, but I guess it’d be better to just get a pasta roller or whatever they are called 😉 I have a KitchenAid Hand Mixer. It’s pink and lovely.
9. What kind of computer do you use?
I have an HP laptop, Ben has the MacBook Pro
10. Favorite Christmas movie?
Mine would likely be Home Alone 1 or 2. Ben’s would be Die Hard.
