Meet me on Monday

Well, it's that time again for Meet Me on Monday. I love these question answer can learn so much.  Here goes...


1. What is your favorite kind of potato chip? 

the Hubz and I really like the Cape Cod kettle cooked chips.  I think the flavor we like the most is Russet.  I don't buy chips like I used to when all the kids were home, but man these are tasty and very crunchy.  Yummy with a BLT!

2. Do you make your bed everyday?

Most every day.  My Grandmother taught us well about making the bed.  If the comforter didn't hang perfectly on each side, then you had to make it over and try again.  I thought when I was growing up that was ridiculous.  I get it now.  Thank you Memommie for always teaching me to give my best.

3. How often do you go to the hair salon?

I too have highlights, so about every six weeks or so.  Fall is coming so I go a little darker.  I tried to go without highlights once, I thought my middle son would disown me.  I think he said I looked "creepy".  My stylist is also one of my best friends in the entire world.  He has taught me so much about life and not judging people...I always feel better just being with him.  An appointment usually turns into the afternoon.  I love you Todd!

4. What do you dip your French fries in?

Hmm...normally, nothing.  I make oven fries with rosemary or cumin so they are just so tasty I don't like covering that yumminess up.  Wanna try some? You will never fry again! Cut a baking potato into wedges, at least 8 if not more.  Put in large bowl.  Drizzle the potato wedges with extra virgin olive oil.  Now flavor them up.  Rosemary, garlic, a little cumin...grill's all up to you.  Now pop them in a preheated oven ...the hotter the better.  Tip*** I line my pan with Reynolds No Stick Foil.  Easy clean up.

 I could not live without this stuff.  It makes life so much easier.  Now bake until they begin to brown and turn them once.  It is important not to crowd them on the sheet pan.  They will brown beautifully and be golden, crispy and not too bad for you either.  If you want sprinkle with cheese of your choice.  Who doesn't love cheese right?  Parmesan, or blue cheese crumbles or good ole cheddar.  Maybe some fresh chives from the is good again.  Enjoy.

5 Do you shop with coupons?

Sometimes.  Not as much as I should. When I am feeling good and functioning well...I have it all together and shop with coupons and sale items.  You can really save.  I haven't been that good in months.  I grab one or two here and there.  I really should try harder.

Hey, bonus point...go to and get a coupon for your first roll of no stick foil.  It will change your life.  Don't forget who told you!  If you purchase some or try the oven fry recipe...please let me know.
Thank you Java for hosting.  I look forward to see every one's answers.  Have a great week!


  1. I don't think we have reynold's nonstick foil in Canada. At least not where I shop. Usually just spray my foil with "pam" or something.

    Those potato wedges sound amazing. I love potatoes - will have to try that.

  2. Following you from Follow Friday.....would love to have you follow back!

  3. No, I don't get paid for any kind of endorsement from Reynolds...I shold though.

  4. I love tried and true recipes. Thanks!
