Meet Me on Monday #43

April 18, 2011


I was almost going to forgo this post this time. It’s just been so busy for me, lately. But the taxes are done (in the nick of time, too), although we haven’t even started the spring cleaning nor the vegetable garden plans. *sigh* Now I know why some women of the olden days used to have servants.


1. Caesar Salad or Garden Salad?

Any, I guess. Whenever I am eating out, I usually order Caesar salad. After all, when in Rome… hahaha! I like salads, especially Greek salads, loaded with stuff. I made this one a few months ago. It cost a fortune, but it was worth it. šŸ˜€


Cucumbers, roasted red peppers, raw garlic, artichokes, mozzarella balls, raddichio, spinach, dolmas-- YUMMM!


2. Will you be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th?

Oh, so that’s when it is? I really had no idea! I am aware of all the news (and hype) about it, but haven’t paid much attention and did not know the Big Day. Honestly, despite all the hype, it’s so nice to know that marriage is still so celebrated. I study British history in my spare time, so I have an interest in the royal families. Although, I doubt I’ll be watching the wedding, not with spring cleaning and gardening staring me in the face.

3. Last thing you spent lots of money on?

INCOME TAXES. Don’t get me going on the legality and rationality (and fairness) of such a thing. GRRRRRR.

4. Window seat or aisle seat?

Window. I like to look outside and see the sights.

Train along Hudson R

On the train watching the Hudson River. I wonder what's under that weird-shaped hill?


5. Do you know your blood type?

Yep. Do you know it? Uh, nope.

:jittery: Thanks for reading! Have a great week, everyone!

    People still use the train eh? I guess if it is more prevalent where you live. Last time I did train rides was overseas because it was easier over there to use those to travel from country to country.

  2. Rebecca Says:

    The train is not very prevalent here in Upstate NY, except to New York City (which I took that day of the photo). Driving in NYC is CRAZY, most visitors take the train or airplane and use public transportation.

    I think trains are terrific, though. I would SO love to take them in Europe! Maybe someday…

  3. Karen and Gerard Says:

    Last big thing we spent money on was my Femara prescription–$500+!

  4. Carole Says:

    I love to take the train too – that is our transportation of choice into NYC too, rather than take my life in my hands and try to drive – I am with you!
    Your Greek salad looks as delicious and fantastic today as it did when I saw it on your other blog (Wow Chow Cooking) – it was that memorable! šŸ™‚ I am sooooo hungry for a big Greek salad now, gee thanks (and I have NONE of those ingredients on hand)! LOL…

  5. Secondary Roads Says:

    That Greek salad looks so good! Wouldn’t it taste great while sitting on a terrace atop a hill looking over the vineyards and olive trees?

    Window for me too. I like the westbound drive on the thruway along the river in NY. It always made me think of the book Drums Along the Mohawk. I’m thinking it looked a lot different when my ancestors passed that way on their way west and eventually to Michigan.

  6. Rebecca Says:

    Hee hee, sorry Carole. I dislike food posts for exactly the same reason!

  7. Rebecca Says:

    Oh yes, Chuck, the NYS Thruway and Mohawk River! I like in the Mohawk Valley, so it’s a familiar sight indeed. The Mohawk is still so wild… the landscape has changed quite a bit, but the river not so much.

  8. Tiny Says:

    That salad looks gorgeous! I love salad but it has to be interesting šŸ™‚

    No Royal Wedding for me, either and I’m British – don’t get me started, really, or I’ll be ranting about it ’til next Tuesday! šŸ™‚

  9. bingkaycoy Says:

    Just like you REbecca, I like to sit near the window….I make sure I have a window seat whenever I fly and that is why I book early.

  10. Carole Says:

    I know this is silly, but, have you ever had the Stewart’s Shop ice cream flavor “CRUMBS Along the Mohawk”? It’s probably one of my most favorite ice cream flavors ever! So imagine you were a passenger on a westbound trip along the NYS Thruway along the river, and you had a window seat with a great view, and had a cup of Crumbs Along the Mohawk ice cream – now that would be perfect!! šŸ˜€

  11. lin Says:

    I don’t typically like salads, but that one looks very good!

    Count me in for the wedding. Yep, I’m setting the alarm and hanging out by the tube for the day. I can’t WAIT!!! I’m there for Diana, I guess. I was her age and kinda went through life stages when she did–I was devastated when she died. Oh, How I felt for those children!! I wish she was here to see her son marrying on that day. So, I guess if she can’t be there boo-hooing the marriage of her oldest, I’ll take her place. I’ll stock up on kleenex.
