Tuesday 4 meme ~ Food

I am happy to see that Annie from Cottage by the Sea is continuing on with the Tuesday 4 that Toni started.

Questions will be up for you here at 9PM on Sunday nights which will give enough time to answer and post on your own blog on Tuesdays. I hope you will enjoy these. Thanks for joining!

Welcome to Tuesday 4 which was started by Toni Taddeo
 and kept up in memory and honor of her.


The topic for this week's Tuesday 4 meme is Food!

1. What do you have at breakfast? What can you recommend? If I am back on my diet, its Herbalife shakes.... if not, then its a bowl of cereal or oatmeal, and the every now and then Bacon Egg n cheese McGriddle.

2. What is your favorite meal of the day and why? dinner, because my hubs is home

3. Tell us about your typical lunch or dinner. lunch, is either a shake, or a sandwich of sorts. Dinner - it depends of the night we have a schedule of sorts.. Monday is pasta, Tuesday some sort of meat/veggies, Wednesday is breakfast night, Thursday is pizza night, Friday is usually leftovers, and the weekend is up for grabs

4. Were meals different growing up or do you continue much as your mother did? they were more the comfort foods, and I do not cook like my mother. I make more Italian foods for the hubs.

Chore I'm not looking forward to today or this week... cleaning the bathroom - the toilet in particular

Tuesday 4 Meme ~ Housekeeping



I am happy to see that Annie from Cottage by the Sea is continuing on with the Tuesday 4 that Toni started.

Welcome to Tuesday 4 which was started by Toni Taddeo
 and kept up in memory and honor of her.


Today's topic is people

1. What do you consider the most important job or chore to do in housekeeping? disenfecting... cleaning and wiping down everything daily is tiring, but it needs to be done.

2. Do dishes ever sit over night in your sink? guilty... I used to be on top of it and get them done, bu after working all day, making dinner, the thought of doing dishes and cleaning up is just too much on some days!

3. Is being a stay at home mom a real career? YES!! I have been both, and I feel I was more worn out being a stay at home mom, than when I was working outside the home.

4. Can you share favorite brands of dish soap, cleaners, detergents or perhaps a tip on making house keeping easier? Thank you for your participation! My favorite brand used to be Palmolive Green Apple, but they quit making that one, so I have switched over to Gain, either the original scent or the lemon zest. Cleaners as in counter disinfectant usually a generic brand with bleach.
