Monday Quiz 15

Acting Balanced1. May is National Asparagus Month – do you like it? Have a favorite recipe?

I like my asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with olive oil.

2. May is also National Salad month… what’s your favorite salad?I

I have several – tostada salad (which I just had at Baja Fresh yesterday), Nicoise salad, apple cranberry, just to name a few.

3. Laundry Question: Fabric Softener yea or nay? How do you keep your clothes soft and static free?

Yes, if I’m hanging my clothes out to dry in the sun, I use Downy softener. If I’m using a dryer, I go with Bounce sheets, they make my clothes smell heavenly.

4. Do you speak more than one language? What language would you love to learn?

I speak 4 languages, as do my kids (no, we’re not aspiring tourist guides 😆 ). Our conversations tend to get jumbled with vocab from all of them at once. I took some classes in Japanese once but am out of practice and would love to pick up from where I left off. I’m in the midst of learning French on my own but it’s not easy and I’m stalled right now because I don’t have anyone to practise it with.

5. My question…

Do you stick strictly to expiry dates on food, or do you go easy with them?

    We try not to buy anything that will be here long enough to go past the date, If it’s just a day or two and looks/smells okay we might still use it, but if it’s more than a couple of days we throw it out and don’t buy it anymore.

    Your conversations at home are similar to my own. My son speaks Japanese and I speak some Russian, and we both know speak enough Spanish to have a short conversation, so we often speak in all four languages when English is added. It’s funny and a lot of fun.

    I stick to expiry dates. Most everything gets used before the date, but I don’t mind tossing something even a day old.
