Today I had a couple of thoughts.
1. When you are at a restaurant, do you allow your spouse/ other.... to eat things off your plate? Let me remind you that Terry and I have been married for 30 years. He is a much faster eater than I am. So... he would then start reaching for the fries on my plate, for instance. I learned we don't share one dish well..like a plate of nachos. He'd eat 3/4 of them before I I knew what was happening. The final straw was after we had been married for at least 15 years ... and I'm thinking it was probably longer, that we had gone to Dairy Queen with our daughters to get a Blizzard. I get one Blizzard a summer. One... that's my splurge... I was over 40 before I had ever ordered a Banana Split anywhere, because it seemed too indulgent. ( Me and my issues). So I was taking my time with my Turtle Blizzard and he had finished his order. I saw that spoon headed toward my Blizzard and lost it! Our girls still remember Mom's great Blizzard melt down. So now, I'll tell him what he can have...when I'm done or if I don't want them. If we split a plate, I'll remove what I want first. So am I the only one ?
I had a couple of reminders of days gone by like.....
1. The classified "Want Ads" were divided into Male and Female Help Wanted. This was the late 60s and early 70s that I can remember.
2. Olive loaf... I hated olive loaf and was not thrilled when my mother brought that home instead of plain bologna. Also Braunschweiger( liverwurst mystery meat - to me) even beat olive loaf as dreaded lunch time sandwiches.
3. The 70s were big into Fondue, but I can say I have never done that. I missed that fad somehow. Daughter #2 has a fondue pot and it has been revived for a new century. Now there's a Christmas idea. We are always looking for easy things to do. That would be fun for the Grandsons too. So, did you fondue?
I had to pick the orange one. It was the 70s and this is a hint of my kitchen back then.

Today in my rambling, I've decided fondue might be fun and I still do not like liverwurst!
