What’s Cooking – Special Edition!

Happy Thursday! (If you follow the blog, this is the official announcement that “What’s Cooking” will now be a Thursday feature.)

So, I was recently granted a beautiful blogger award from a fellow blogger who is a revolutionary riot grrl looking out for all of our furry friends, Life of Bun! She mans a great cruelty free blog, with gusto. Thanks to Life of Bun, and I graciously accept!

With that being said, when you accept such an award, it is customary to list 7 random things about yourself, and pass the award on.

First, I would like to pass this award to In Her Chucks, and Maggie’s One Butt Kitchen. Check out their blogs for some yummy ideas! In Her Chucks is an ardent CSA supporter, and Maggie’s One Butt Kitchen is just chock full of crack food that makes me wish I grew up in her house!

And on to the 7 random things:

1.) I have had over 35 jobs ranging from being a perfume model to teaching ESL to llama shearing to costume design, and am only 27! In other words, I am a jack of all trades. I usually hold down more than 1 job at once, so largely they are part-time things and there is overlap.  I haven’t been a lounge singer yet though, and that was “what I wanted to be when I grew up.”

2.) In addition to our lovely ladies (chickens), I also have 4 cats, Dylan, Cleo, Bebe and Vishnu. They needed their 15 minutes.

3.) I’ve broken my nose 4 times…. There is no cartilage left in the front, so it is squishy now.

4.) In my “real” life, I currently work for a college in the Alumni Relations office, assisting with coordinating, planning and executing events, as well as with Down Home Acres selling organic produce.

5.) I was a vegetarian for 10 years before doctor’s told me I had to stop. I still eat largely vegetarian, but admittedly when I took that first bite of a pizza burger hoagie after 10 years, I was pretty blissed out.

6.) I have a degree in Creative Writing with a focus in Non Fiction and Poetry, and my first official published poetry chapbook “Heart”, debuted in 2006.

7.) I’m an only child, and actively work to defeat the stereotype.

Thanks for reading everyone, and thanks for the award Bun! 🙂

This week’s bounty – Salad Mix, garlic chives, beets, peppers and potatoes!

  1. Yay! I had a good time getting to know you a bit better! 🙂 I love how many jobs you’ve had haha, it shows you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty! Also, your nose? How in the world did you break it that often?!

    • Thanks, bun! As for the nose breaking here’s the summary:
      1.) 7 or 8 years old, wooden tobagon (think the old fashioned kind) to the face at the bottom of a hill by my best friend’s brother.
      2.) 9 years old, fell off of some playground equipment (which was quickly replaced) and “nosed” a thick metal bar.
      3.) 12 years old, like my 3rd softball practice – I “caught” a pop up to the nose, didn’t discourage me one bit!
      4.) 14 years old – while playing softball, a girl hit me in the face with a ball and glove (she was going for blood in a tourney)as I slide into home base. I got the run though, lol.
