Hi Holly, I'm the same way with amusement park rides. I like the big, fast ones, but I get dizzy on the merry-go-round. Duh.

Congratulations on the award.

I love scary rides!! And, really, just organ meats? That's impressive.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I promise there will be no recipes showing up on my blog that include organ meats:)

We are a Disney family, have been so many times I've lost count. Now, my daughter works there...send her to college and she moves 1000 miles away to "follow her dreams" the day after graduation. How dare she! I've given up most of the rides in my "old age"! I've done them so many times, I hate the lines and I don't want to be the headline where the "50-something woman dies of undetected heart problem on Space Mountain"!

Hope the weekend was a good one at your houses!

Really? You love ALL foods except organ meats? All other food you love?! Wow!

Congrats on the awards and thanks so much for passing this one on to me!

I loved liver and onions when I was a kid. I loved it!!

Now, I don't.

ShellyInOz said...

Go on! Brussels sprouts, sardines, anchovies, canned asparagus, rollmops, eel, sea urchin? You love all these things? The last three don't really count as they aren't really North American cuisine, but the others? Good for you.

You are welcome in MY home any time. I love cooking for people who are not fussy eaters.

Tiffany said...

Aww shucks! Thanks kindly for the award...I do love to scribble! And eat organ meats.

just kidding--i'm not sure i even know what that means...

I despise organ meats, but was actually debating trying to make giblet gravy this Thanksgiving for the first time....not looking forward to it.

Congratulations on all of your well-deserved awards!

I would be a giant next to you. I always feel like an Amazon woman. I am 5'8", which isn't that tall, but lots taller than you. Thanks a lot!

Congrats on the new bling girls!

I reckon if we fed you organ meets and put you on the swings, you'd vomit everywhere. It'd be great.

The swings make me sick too. I used to be able to swing for hours and hours...That's when I knew I was getting old.

You do look taller on video.
