Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
1. If you could instantly play a musical instrument, which one would it be?
It would be the piano. I would sit and play for hours I think. Maybe. Now I think I like sewing, and hooking and even cooking better than I would to instantly learn the piano. Weird, I didn't even realize that desire to learn after the kids grew up was no longer there.
2. Do you have a fireplace, wood-stove, or pellet-stove?
We have a wood stove, that I love. It is quiet except for the sound of the wood popping and cracking. I could cook on it if I wanted and I always keep a tea pot on it so tea and hot chocolate are always being made when it is cold.
3. What's your favorite addition to brownies?
Here is my favorite way to make brownies. I make my brownies from scratch so I take half of the batter and put it in a 13x9 then take 4 large candy bars and put them over the batter in the pan. Pour the rest of the batter over the candy bars and then bake about 40 to 45 minutes until the side pull away a bit. I have used candy bars with caramel in them, Nestles crunch, Cookies and cream. I have thought about using Andes mints this winter. I have even been thinking of putting a layer of peanut butter in there. Just leave it to your imagination but I tell you they become very habit forming.
4. Do you use much bottled water?
I do buy a case each week when I go to the store. My kids take them to school. I use them over and over again for my water.
5. How much did you weight as a newborn?
I was a preemie and weight just a little over three pounds. I was due at the end of June and I was born May 2nd. The doctors told my parents I wouldn't live but afterwards the doctor told my Mom I was such a fighter that is what kept me alive. My Dad said once, he could hold me in one hand and my head would be in his fingers and my feet would rest on his wrist. It wasn't until my grandsons were born did I understand how small that was or how scary.
