7 things about me..
Lori Anderson over at her Pretty Things Blog had an Award given to her about being a very Versatile blogger. Congrats Lori! She has invited others to take the ball with this and run, so I thought why not? Tho I did not Win this award Ill give it a go anyway!
1. I took BALLET as a child and studied 8 years. Part of that time I studied under Soviet Ballet dancer defector Andre Eglevesky.
2. I learned to ride a UNICYCLE as a kid and rode all over the neighborhood. It was very hard to learn!
3. I helped my father raise CATERPILLAR'S for his study in the field of lepedopteria.
I knew the name of every butterfly I saw! The Cecropia Moth emerges and has No mouth parts to eat. She lives to lay eggs and he lives to mate then dies. How sad.
4. I cooked in a Pillsbury Bake-Off in South Carlolina. Tho I didnt win it was great fun!
5. I went to Parsons School of Design and The New School in NYC for Fashion Design and
fashion Illustrator. It was very exciting! (left to get married to the X lesson learned!)
6. I lived in Scotland with my Brit husband for 4 years. I ate and cooked HAGGIS, neeps and tatties, bubble and squeek , rowies, baps, cockaleekie soup, black pudding, yorkshire pudding and mince and tatties. All wonderful food!
This is haggis below..
Haggis is distinct in that is it made from lamb's offal and suet. Lamb's offal is the
lung, heart, and liver of a young sheep. Suet is the white, hard fat from the
kidneys and loins of livestock, like cattle and sheep.
Traditionally served with neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes)
Black pudding..on the right. Spotted dick? Would you like some? (many a childs laughter)
Spotted dick is a steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit (usually currants) commonly served with custard. Spotted refers to the dried fruit(which resemble spots) and dick may be a contraction/corruption of the word pudding (from the last syllable) or possibly a corruption of the word dough or dog, as "spotted dog" is another name for the same dish with the use of plums rather than currants. Another explanation offered for the latter half of the name is that it comes from the German word for "thick," in reference to the thickened suet mixture.
Spotted dick in the can to the left.
Spotted dick is always served with custard!
All Black pudding is made of blood and Yorkshire pudding is the British name for the American popover. I learned so much in Scotland. Alot of culture too and an eloquence that I well admire to the mannerisms to the way of life.
Here is the house in Scotland of my husbands!
7. I worked for a Millionaire in Virginia before I came here to Texas.
I'm sure many of you have alot of things about yourselves.
Pass this on and write something about yourself!
Have a great day!
