A Dinner Invitation For Angelou, Gaga, Bono, & Cooper


Marvelous Mandy  from The Complete Cookbook had this cool idea for bloggers to get to know one another better.  It was fun answering these Foodie Questions.  Make sure you check out Mandy’s blog!  And follow this same format if you’re so inclined, biaaatches. 

 Thank You, Mandy!

1.  What 5 items are always in your fridge?

Milk, eggs, hummus, ( I eat so much hummus, I have it coming out of my ears ) diet coke, & real whip cream.

I buy Sabra.

2.  What 5 items are always in your pantry ?

oooooooOh, I wish I had a pantry!  But if I did, I’d have brown sugar, chocolate chips, white sugar, flour, & fiber bars in there.

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

Yes.    Always.   But I forget it at home!   Always.  I’m a dork like that.

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

My coffee pot & microwave.

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

Photos of my family all over the side of my microwave….Lots of  photos of my sister, Kay.

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

Starter:  Caesar salad w/ big garlic croutons ( I looove Caesar Salad!)  can I put raw eggs in, Mandy?

Mains:  It would definitely  have to be something Italiano.  Spaghetti with my daddy’s homemade sauce &  sweet Italian sausage.  Thickly cut garlic bread.  Mozzarella for topping.Canning Spaghetti Sauce 





Dessert:  I make a mean, naughty, sexy Crème Brulee.   No, seriously.  Stop laughing.Creme brulee for Dad

7.  If you could invite any 4 living celebrities  to dinner, who would they be?

Sooo many, but these people are on the top of my brain:  Maya Angelou,  Lady Gaga,  Bono, &  Anderson Cooper. 

 — I loooove Gaga.

8.  What is your favorite breakfast out?

I order the same thing every. single. time at this little gem of a restaurant (which by the way, Guy Fieri  featured on his show) called  The Duluth Grill.  I order the Mediterranean Omelet.   And it is Out of this Planet– Good.  

9.  What one condiment could you not be without?

Hellman’s Mayonnaise w/ olive oil

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

My family goes Craaazy.    For example:  I make a whole chicken on Sunday.   On Monday, I make chicken sandwiches.  On Tuesday, I make chicken soup.  On Wednesday, I toss  the chicken bones under our pine tree for our skunks & raccoons, which they probably choke on.   Get the picture?   Put it this way;  my fam woud have survived during the Great Depression.

Watch This  Classic Anderson Cooper Clip. I’m telling you, He is soooooooo sexy! 

pink lips  

Dear, Reader–What 5 items must you have in your fridge at ALL TIMES?    Which  4 stars would you invite to dinner?

    In my fridge–Sabra Hummus, too! My entire family loves the stuff. Also, organic fat-free milk, Tropicana Calcium OJ (no pulp); and lemon yogurt.

    Who’d I invite for dinner? Do they have to be alive? If not, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and Colin Firth (because a girl can dream, can’t she?) and Linda Scottoline, whose book, “Why My Third Husband will be a Dog,” is a hoot!

    My dinner guests would include a good mix of pop culture folks and political peeps. I think I’d invite Keith Olbermann, Trace Adkins, Bill Maher, Jon Bon Jovi, Joe Biden and Perez Hilton. *laughs* That’s 6, I know but you never know when someone’s gonna cancel at the last minute.

    Kim, what a fun list! I too go through the trouble of making a grocery list only to leave it at home. Add my name to the dork list! By the way, you had me at “naughty, sexy Crème Brulee”! So glad you didn’t include this at the beginning of the post, since I don’t know if I would’ve been able to continue reading! hee hee! One question: How different does the Hellman’s mayo with olive taste in comparison to the regular Hellman’s?

      I actually think it’s the same, but the consumer assumes it’s better when they see “Made with Olive Oil” On the jar. HAAAAAAAAA. At least I do.
      Well, Who would you have over for dinner? xxxxxxxxx

  • Reply
    August 21, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Fridge – fresh raw milk, raw milk cheese, sweet peppers, hot peppers (habanero & jalapeno), and… and… well poop. Let me go look at what is in there. Fiji water. No no, heavy whipping cream – can’t live without that!

    Pantry: Millstone Bed & Breakfast coffee beans, cocoa powder, raw & organic sugar, raw alfalfa honey (yum), all my herbs and spices!

    Grocery list or I buy much no-no stuff! Most item used: French press and oven. It would probably what is NOT in my kitchen – no microwave. Come Dine Challenge: tossed salad with toasted pecans and mandarin oranges and honey lemon vinegar dressing, stuffed manacotti with crusty sourdough French bread smothered in garlic butter. After a heavy dinner, a small bowl of sugared strawberries with a dallop of fresh whipped whipping cream.

    As for living celebrities: Bruce Willis because I think he’d keep us laughing; ditto Slyvester Stallone; Helen Mirren just because she’s so down-to-earth and seems to have a dry humor; Angelina Jolie (sly humor) and I guess she could bring her boyfriend, old what’s his name (but he doesn’t count as a guest ’cause they’re a couple); hmmm – right now I can’t think of a fifth celebrity who’s humor I like – but I wanna rock the house with laughter. Oh oh – The Rock, Dwayne Johnson – he’s very funny too. You will notice that the men are stuffed full of toss-tost-ter-rone!!!

    Oooo – I saw that episode with the Duluth Grill!! My fave breakfast out is biscuits and gravy! Condiment: agree -Hellman’s mayo! I have no problemo with leftovers (they’re usually better the next day) but Alpha Hubby? Not so much – whines a lot. This was fun – now I’m hungry!

      And I agree about Jolie & Pitt. They are one. Bradalinna, or something like that.

      And then add a bit of Helen Mirren. Gosh, I love her.

      Your meal sounds amazing. Damn, I want to come over so I can
      watch you cook in that gorgeous kitchen. I love the way your pans hang down from the ceiling.

      I have an idea: DO A vlog like that! You can cook that meal in your “home and garden” Kitchen.

    I like the idea of a virtual dinner party.. Instead of a blog hop, a dinner party with each of us contributing to the mean. I enjoy cooking, it’s relaxing to me to combine and invent. If I am stressed, the family knows they will be eating gourmet (my version not professional and television quality). I an never without sweet paprika, fresh basil, lemons, and cilantro. Everything else is the fridge and cupboard is anybody’s guess. Creme Brulee–nothing better. I love it. I also like pie, but no one in my house likes pie so I never make. I can’t even remember the last time I had pie (my waistline and the size of my bum are relieved I never eat pie.)

    Ummm, are we the same person. Hummus. Morning, noon and night. I can’t pass by the fridge without grabbing me some hummus.

    In my opinion, a caesar salad is not a proper one without a raw egg and some anchovies.

    And hellman’s mayo with olive oil is a stock up item in my house.

    And then there’s, of course, Bono. When you have this dinner party, will you invite me? And pay no mind if Bono and I slip out quietly. I’ll blog about it later.
