9-Word Answer Hodgepodge with a TV Dinner

1. Last thing you did on the spur of the moment?

Wrote answers to this Hodgepodge . Usually I think first.

2. How well informed do you feel about the current Syrian refugee crisis?

Not well, but I'm against more Muslim infiltration here.

3. What have you changed your mind about? 

Dinner tonight.  It was steak; now it's crab cakes.

4. A medium sized non-poisonous snake found it's way into the pool trap this weekend. If you'd been sitting poolside would you have fished it out? Gone running? Called for help? Pretended not to know? Continued swimming?

You didn't list "pooped your suit" as a choice. 

5. September 10th is National TV Dinner Day...what's your idea of a great TV dinner? (Or at least a pretty good one!) 

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes with gravy, roll,  and green beans

6. Samuel Johnson is quoted as saying, "Courage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other." Would you agree? Where have you seen that played out recently? What's the second greatest virtue?

Disagree. Love is the greatest virtue. Faith is second.

7. What are three words you have trouble remembering how to spell?

 Occurrence (two r's?),  onomatopoeia (ugh!),  and perseverance (try again).  

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I have meals planned for a month, finally! Woot!

Good for you and the meal planning! I love having meals thought out in advance. Hope the new school year is going well and you're enjoying your tutoring job.

So do you actually follow the plan or is it 'subject to change?' Say, you don't 'feel' for that nights assigned meal? :)

Zoanna said...

Oh, it's absolutely subject to change! The main idea is to have no real thinking to do for a while, and only pick up from the store what fresh items I need, not because I forgot an ingredient! Also I'm working three nights a week and this lets my tired hubby just reheat or do minimal prep and not have to fend for himself . Cuts down on ordering out, too.

Oh, just found a few, few minutes to read some blogs. Love your short and to the point answers. I sure hope to be back with the HP next week. If all goes as planned, whatever that is, we will head home on Sat. Yea!!!!

I tried the meal planning once or twice, it didn't work out. When I was supposed to eat xxx on a Monday, I just wasn't in the mood for xxx and so on. The system works fairly well for mums with young kids and few dollars, even fewer hours for decision making re dinners.

Excellent answers, all would be my answers except for the snake (run away screaming loudly) and spelling words. My spelling part of my brain is laughing at me.
