Get to Know Me (A Little Bit...More) Tag:

I've already done a "Get to Know Me" Tag - but Samantha at Nail Art Couture tagged me in her post so I thought I'd answer her 11 questions here :)
           

           
1. Why did you start blogging?
 I actually just started blogging in April. I had been reading blogs for a while and thought it looked like so much fun and wanted to try it out myself! I finally took the plunge.
              
2. Do you speak another language? If so, what? If not, what language would you like to learn? 
I am terrible in that I can only speak English, and the limited French we learned in school. I would love to be able to speak French fluently. 
              
3. What is the strangest food you have ever eaten?
I am a very very picky eater - so I haven't really eaten that many strange foods. My "strange" foods are probably typical for most people! I guess I would have to say maybe Bamboo? Even though I know that's not that strange - don't judge!
              
4. If you had one day to live and money isn't an issue, what would you do?
I would fly everyone I love to be in the city with me and just spend time with them. I've learned that it's not what you are doing that really matters, but who you are doing it with.
                 
5. What was the first job you ever held?
I was a snowboard instructor :)
                    
6. How many days can you go without make-up and shaving/tweezing? 
I coullllld technically not shave at all and not wear make up ever. But in reality, I usually shave my legs every second day and wear makeup about 5-6 days a week...
                
7. What was your favorite 90's/discontinued snack or drink? 
SODALICIOUS!!! They are amazing. I wish they still sold them!!
               
8. What's one of the things you want to do on your bucket list? 
Travel to every Continent in the World.
              
9. Could you share with me your favorite recipe?
I don't really have a "favourite" - I love cooking so much that I am always trying new recipes. This is a recipe I read about on a blog last year that I really really love to make. I've made it about 5 times now (which doesn't seem like a lot - but seeing as I try out a new recipe every time I cook, 5 repeats is actually a lot!)
                   
Cucumber au Gratin
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
  • salt & black pepper
  • 3-4 Tbs butter
Peel the cucumbers & cut them into 1 inch pieces. Slice each piece in half lengthwise & remove the seeds. Cook the cucumber in boiling salted water for 10 minutes, then drain & dry. Arrange a layer of cucumber in the base of a buttered ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with a third of the cheese, & season with salt & pepper. Repeat these layers, finishing with cheese. Dot the top with butter. Bake the cucumber gratin in the center of a preheated oven at 400 for 30 minutes.
                             
                            
10. Which TV character best represents you? 
That's tough. I'm not sure. I don't think any of them - we're all original! Though maybe Zoe Hart from Hart of Dixie...We're both kind of awkward and silly, and overly caring.
                       
11. What's one task that you hate doing?
Folding clothes - the worst!
                
I'm not going to tag anyone specifically but if any of my readers want to answer some or all of these I would love love love to hear your answers and learn a little bit more about you!! xx

  6. Cucumber au gratin sounds amazing! And so cool that a snowboard instructor was your first job, most people get boring ones like grocery store clerk or babysitting haha.

    1. Well I did babysit - but I just wasn't paid! haha
      And the cucumber au gratin looks really weird (because normally you don't cook cucumber) but tastes AMAZING - I highly recommend trying it out!

  9. I'm like you in that I can only speak English - such a shame that I don't know any other languages. I haven't watched Hart of Dixie but Rachel Bilson is so pretty, I would watch just to see her :)
