Food Again?

I guess you can tell by now that I love food! Who knew? Anyway, I'm only blogging about this because my Amanda told me to.

I sent some of my home-made quiche with K. to work (too much, of course!) As is his custom, sharing commenced. Sometime that afternoon, he asked me how much I had in the recipe. Not quite understanding the question, I began to rattle off a generic laundry-list of the ingredients. He stopped me with," No,no. I mean cost wise; what do you have in it?" "I don't know; more than $5.00/less than $10.00. Why?"

He proceeded to inform me that a co-worker had requested that if I had time, she would like one for her family for a post-Thanksgiving Day breakfast. I said that was no problem. I heard her in the background telling him something, and K. relayed that she would only accept it if she could pay for it...$20.00! Wow! That's my first order! That really excited me; but not as much as when he called later and asked if it would be alright if she added a vegetarian version as well, at $20.00 each. That's the easiest $40.00 ever!

Now the crew wants breakfast burritos for Sunday. I'm just gonna make those for K. to bring and if anyone wants to pitch in for the cost of ingredients, that would be great.

Gotta go get the kitchen ready. I'm gonna be busy for the next couple of days!
Have a good Saturday!

(P.S. Saoirse Daily2 , I have finally figured out how to properly use the links thingy! TA-DAH! I'll now be able to earn the Award you bestowed on me earlier this week. Look for that to be completed by the end of Monday.)

Thanks, Michele. Mmuah!

Mom, that sounds so great. You get to combine your love of food and your love of taking care of people and make some dough. Save the recipe, I want one when you come to visit. Mine's free though. :)

I cook and bake a little for family and friends sometimes. Helps us both out. I haven't had any requests yet, but I usually get some requests before Christmas. I even bake homemade dog bones for a vet friend!

Good for you, sounds like you've found a new hobby, and it even pays! ;o)

Happy Sunday!

Love and hugs,

Diane

Good Job. It's always nice when someone appreciates something that you make yourself. Spent the day buying beads!! Can't wait to get started creating new earrings! Ditto what Diane said about your new hobby that pays.

Have a fun relaxing Sunday.

I just found your blog at Diane's Place, and really like how you write, and thought I'd tell you so. You may be surprised at how quickly your breakfast Quiche is known about, and other food items. I'll bet Colonel Sanders never thought his special herbs and spices would spread across the country, maybe the world, like they have.

What I like most about "Food Again?" is the happy optimism that comes through in how you write, and that you didn't let it get you that something new you tried to learn, about links, I think. didn't work the first time.

My blog is Flight Song, although lately I haven't written much. I Will be visiting you again.

Hi, Judith!

I like that name. I'm so glad that you stopped by. Please feel free to visit any time.

Have a nice week!

Have I thanked you lately for following my blog? It may seem like I've got a funny way of showing it, changing my blog address the day before my first giveaway and screwing up everybody's links. What an idiot I can be...Anyway, if you haven't had a chance to enter the giveaway because you can't find it, try the old address, http://the7msn.blogspot.com , and be sure to enter. Blogger assures me the pointers will be going in the right direction soon.

Diane;

You know I have two dogs, and a cat who was raised by dogs...
Maybe I could trade you a quiche for some yummy home-made treats for my little gaggle; herd or wev.

I guess we could just call them my little suggle-bugs!

To Linda from The 7MSN: Thanks for stopping by! I found your site by way of The Zees Go West and but first. I love George and Alan; as I'm sure many others do. I am originally from Albuquerque and love viewing the New Mexico skies in your beautiful photos. I'll keep trying to get to your blog again. Sometimes blogger is contrary as can be! ;0)

Have a good week, and a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hey, Pido!

I'm glad to hear from you.

You would not believe how the kitchen smelled last night! I'm not bragging: when I cook, it's like I'm in a trance: like I'm channeling some long gone wonderful cook who just makes things up a they go along. I don't ever really have a plan. I just go by the visual and the aroma. Nine times out of ten, it turns out well. Then again, my Grama taught me alot. Her main rule: mess up every dish, and pot and pan in the kitchen!

I'm thankful for you being my friend: too, Pido. :)
