My first Friday five... A Matter of Taste

I need a quick break, and this seemed like a good things to do while I sip a cup of tea and then get back after it.

1. Seafood: especially shellfish- crab, lobster, scallops, etc. I love them all. P, well, I've seen him literally gag on a scallop I cadjoled him into trying one time.

2. Mushrooms: I love mushrooms. Sauteed in butter, sliced in a salad, in a marsala sauce, you name it. P feels the same way about mushrooms that he does about shellfish. He says it's a texture thing...

3. A softer matress: P likes it hard as a rock. I would love a nice fluffy pillow top... someday.

4. Herbal Tea: The people I work with think the world moves on caffeine and can't understand why I drink the stuff. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my morning coffee too, but I love to unwind with herbal tea when I don't want the caffeine. I've been asked numerous times, "What's the point?" I think it would be useless to try and explain it to a non-tea drinker.

5. Warmed Leftovers: That's right, I like to reheat last night's casserole before I eat if for lunch. I like to zap leftover spagghetti in the microwave before I enjoy it again. P just doesn't understand why I bother. I think he's passing this on to L, too. I saw them sharing cold spagghetti-o's the other day. Ick!

It's hard for me to imagine a guy who won't eat leftovers!
Thanks for playing, rivkah.

Eeeeeew!!! I don't think I've ever been able to appreciate cold leftovers, even pizza or fried chicken. The only one I ever liked cold was leftover roast beef, sliced thick and dipped in barbecue sauce. Mmmmm...

This winter, my hubby and I started sleeping in separate rooms. I've long known couples who slept in separate beds in the same room, but he and I both snore so loudly that when we share a room, one or the other of us is awake during the entire night. Not exactly conducive to marital bliss. :-) So we have some quiet and intimate time together before we go to sleep for the night, but then we separate. And frankly, we're much happier now.

All that to say, don't let yourself get too hung up on having to sleep in one big bed. You can put two twin beds next to each other, and even throw a quilt over the top so it looks like one king.

Hi Rivkah,

Mushrooms and shellfish, yum, and really good together in a creamy sauce. (The latter being one of my picks).

Welcome to the RevGals, and to Friday Five!
