I liked your list...I have one on my blog from the early days...I love risotto too...a staple in our house...many of the recipes call for a splash of wine...I use one of those little bottles and then I can drink the rest :o) A perk for babysitting the pot!

Chocolate chip frozen custard? I want to try some of that!

Valerie said...

Dawn Bibbs said...

Oh GOODY!!! Another list. I've seen some of these questions before. But due to more than ONE being a little different, I'm gonna take the challenge. But first, I have to do the one from Saturday...Stay tuned! :-)

Great answers, by the way.

I LOVE your lists - informative yet humorous!
Wouldn't it be just a little slice of heaven to be in Tuscany doing all those things? I read the book and so anticipated the movie yet I just don't think it did it justice (except for the scenery).
AND I'd be periwinkle too!

I enjoyed your list :) made me smile.

TK Angels said...

Like your list. I loved the pic of Brady. He is so cute!! Looks like your dad.

Take care,

PAT said...

Enjoyable reading!! I love your list. I'm not sure I could do a good list!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments you leave for me at the back porch. My family and friends are mostly "lurkers".
I can depend on my good blog buddies, though!!;-)

Sue, what a great, great list! Loved reading this, but you know, I LOVE reading everything you write! You are such a talent. Only a few friends and one family member leave me comments from "real life" - I guess only our blogging sisters "get it", this wonderful, blogging world!

Nonie Mae said...

I love your list. You are so fun.

Sheila said...

Great answers, Sue! Loved reading them all!
Nobody except all of you guys leave me comments either. I guess nobody else reads my blog. I can understand why; it's pretty boring! :) But yours is always so fun!
