The “Seven” Meme
I was tagged by Melissa at Tasty Design for this Meme. I have seen others where you only name 5 things. I like coming up with a list of 5 things. My attention span for 7 is just way too short these days. I am cooking for living, learning to spin, learning to knit, crocheting a table cloth that is nearly finished and trying to keep up on my blogging. My brain is on activity overload! How about you guys??

7 Things to Do Before I Die
1. I would like to be less heavy than I am
2. Go back to France and take more cooking classes

6. Write a book
7. Speak fluent French

7 Things That I can not do (or do not enjoy doing)

7 Things That Attracted Me to Blogging

3. Any kind of an action, murder movie
(I don't remember half of the movies I have seen and never buy DVDs because just as soon as I do, they will come out with a better way to watch movies and then I will have to buy yet another player of some sort. 8 tracks, need I say more???)

7 Bloggers That I Am Tagging
I would love to tag more bloggers, but I think that everyone I know has already been tagged! I really need to expand my horizons! lol!

You took cooking classes in France? That's so cool! Where? What did you cook? How fun! I lead LB when we dance too - we don't dance very well, because neither one of us knows how to lead! I've heard the book about Salt is really good - now I've got a reputable source, so I'll have to check it out! And you made me giggle with your 8 tracks comment - I don't buy the dvd's either...the only video I ever bought was "Braveheart" and then they came out with DVDs, so I quite. Great list, Vickie, it's always fun to learn about you!

I went with a non-cooking friend and we spent 4 days in Provence at some villa way in the country. We had a blast and I drank my weight in wine and never once got snockered. I ate Rabbit for the very first time there and I did like it. It was a little stringy and dark like chicken thighs and drumsticks.

The book about Salt takes a while to read but you learn where our common every day expressions come from like "She's the salt of the Earth". Or "She's worth her weight in salt". I loved that part about the book. I love history and this is really a great lesson in salt and where it comes from. I can't recommend it enough.

I don't, know...I've just never been tagged before, so I wouldn't know.
