47 MORE THINGS you need to know before you decide to continue being my friend

Yet another FB meme. You'd think that I'd learned my lesson and do this here first -- since I've set my blog to autopost on FB. I guess I'm just not that bright... or just really slow on the uptake.
Anyway, since I've been feeling a mite under the weather, I decided to post this here for my readers who've shown some good sense and not friended me on FB. (I'm less 'lunatic' here on my blog. :D )

I'm tagging you. Go do this now. Happy Riel Day!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Lawd, sister you creep me out sometimes. Sushi AND Pavlova? Are these city-wide passions?

    I've made chocolate pavlova before, and my ooohhh my, that just takes it to a new level.

    Unfortunately, my new oven and I aren't on decent enough speaking terms for me to make this anymore.

  2. @wykiekat:
    Chocolate Pavlova?!!! OMG, you're KILLING ME!!! :)
    If you ever feel the need to make another one of those, you are welcome to use my oven! Really! As long as I get some, of course. :)

    I seriously think we need to do a meet-up for sushi at Wasabi then pavlova over at Baked Expectations. I know Harmzie and Myrtle would be on board for that. :)

  3. That sounds like a good night, actually! Sushi AND pavlova! (But there again, not chocolate pavlova)

    Maybe when the weather turns and we can consider a patio?

    Ooooh, patio!
