I’ve been hit with the meme tag!

I have been reading a lot of different blogs lately and have seen people be “tagged” and myself, being so new to blogging, did not really expect it to happen to me! However, it has! I joined the Daring Bakers group in March and I became visible to a lot more people I guess! I was tagged by Medena of Cafe Chocolada. I get to tell you all 5 things about myself and I then get to tag 5 other bloggers! Here we go!

1. I am 44 years old and am married to a 36 year old. Ten years ago I would NOT have admitted that, but as I get older, eh, it seems kind of a compliment to me! : )

2. I am addicted to reading recipes. It doesn’t matter if it is online or a cookbook (however, since the purchase of my laptop, it is mostly online now! My cookbooks are getting a little bit dusty!)

3. My husband and I will be taking our first ever “real” vacation together since we have been together (8 years) and we will be going to Maine! This will be a much needed vacation as we will be taking it right after my oldest son’s wedding in July! Look out Lobster, here we come!

4. I volunteer 3-4 weekends a year for Caring for You and Especially for You. These are non-profit counseling weekends for women who have been thru divorce and abusive marriages (CFY) and for women who have been abused (EFY). I have done this for 18 years now. I am the “cook” for the weekend and it is my way of continuing my healing by helping others.

5. I never used to be a cat lover. I grew up in a home with Beagles. Since meeting Grumpy, we have had 4 cats (one passed away a year ago). I have become very attached to all these cats and they are just like my children (and they are probably more spoiled than my children!). I really want a beagle though….I love them too….but Grumpy won’t allow it….yet anyway πŸ˜‰

I am tagging these nice bloggers:

Carrie of Vegetarian Deliciousness
Julia of A Slice of Cherry Pie
Brooke of …and a cookie for dessert
Michelle of Baking Buddies
Amber of Amber’s Delectable Delights

The rules for the meme:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.

2. Share 5 facts about yourself.

3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post, and list their names to link to them.

4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

    Hey! That’s so great you joined the Daring Bakers – they make some really interesting looking stuff!

    Oh, and I wanted to give you a tempeh tip – a lot of recipes I’ve seen don’t tell you to do this, but if you steam the tempeh for about 10 min. it has a MUCH better texture. I just recently learned that one myself.

    I’ll get around to doing the meme eventually!

    Hi Honeybunch!
    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am also exited to try my hand at baking with the Dbers..
    Congrats on being blessed with a man who loves and adores you! I visited your CFY blog and am interested in knowing if there are these same woman’s groups State wide. I’m in woman’s ministries but have especially a burden for marriages in abuse.

    …also woman going thru menopause! :) :)

    I look forward to reading more on your gastronomy adventures!
