Look whose coming to dinner

So I was talking to my coworker and we were talking about who we would invite to dinner. The usual, if you could have 6 people to dinner, who would you and why? It was so funny because as I’ve gotten older this has changed. When I was younger it was all about who I thought was “Hot”…Hot to Trot.

As we were talking, I realised how much I ‘d want to have dinner with people who’ve led an interesting life. I want to hear about interesting things these days:

Share Your World … Week 45

Share Your World


What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Being truly happy, I don’t think that you can have fun unless you really truly feel happy. There was a group of people that I used to get REALLY drunk with and I honestly believed for a while it was because I was happy. Then I started to realised that I was drinking because I was extraordinarily bored with these people, it was the same conversations, the same “cliches” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I still drink, but I haven’t been “drunk” in a long time and I can definitely go a whole night out without a drink and have way more fun that I used too. I haven’t “needed” to get drunk in a long time.

What is your favorite time of day?

Around about an hour before I go to bed. Now when I say “Go to bed” I generally am in my bed but I’m not going to sleep. I’m either reading or watching some tv before then. It helps to come my mind and if I’m feeling down or something, I can watch a comedy and relax my mind. I cannot watch a horror film before bed,lol

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

I’m going to go with an “alive” person, still doesn’t make the choice any easier though,lol … I think though honestly it would have to be Orlando Bloom mainly because I’ve had a crush on him my my whole life. Well it feels like my whole life it seems.

Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is… 

My dog … Every single time, without fail.

Lasange…What is it?

I bet that you didn’t see this one coming! I can smell the lasagne cooking throughout the house…Lasagne is probably my most favourite food group =D I know it’s not a “literary” quote so to speak…But I have been rushed off my feet at work all week and this is about as much as my mind can muster right now….And it’s only Wednesday!


If you’re wondering why it seems strange to be posting about food in the morning, because of the time difference it is actually dinner time here in Australia.

Food…Yum Yum in the Tum Tum!

Food! Food Glorious Food! I have really enjoyed baking and cooking over the last few years (although if you asked my family they would tell you I don’t even know how to turn on the oven to begin with…I lived in America on and off for three years, what did they think I used to do? Order take out every night?) America is actually the place where I learnt to cook and I love them for that!

Apart from Pasta though I don’t really enjoy cooking dinner food persay. I LOVE to bake though! I love baking cookies and cakes and cupcakes. I love creating desserts. One thing I have never really been into “cooking” though was dips. I just never really even thought about creating my own dips before.

That is until now…

I went to a barbecue last weekend and I found the most amazing dip I have ever come across before! A corn relish dip! I spent the time eating the dip rather than the meat and the salads. So today I am attempting to make it today. Here is the recipe:

  • 250 gms corn relish
  • 220 gms cream cheese

Mix until well blended.

Simple right? The great thing about this recipe is that you can mix it up and change it around so you can add your own tastes…It is amazing!
