WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #391

Join in and play....HERE


1. Just your weekly mid-week reminder that it's fall y'all and it's my favorite. I love nearly all the flavors of fall but let's weigh in with an either or today...pumpkin or cranberry? hot apple cider or pumpkin spice latte? cinammon or maple? apple or pear? ginger or sage? carrot or butternut squash? Yes you have to choose. What's a favorite dish made with one of the flavors listed here? 

I pick Pumpkin, Hot Apple Cider, Maple, Pear, Ginger, Butternut Squash. Pumpkin Pie would be my favorite!

2. Do you miss traveling? In this season of almost no travel do you think you've grown anxious or fearful about traveling again? Or has all this staying home not going anywhere made you restless to get out and see the world? What book have you read or what movie have you watched that has inspired you to travel?

Yes I miss traveling although we did travel by car in September. I am definitely fearful of traveling by plane. I can't think of a movie that I have watched that has inspired me to travel but going through pictures from my trip to Europe recently has definitely inspired me to go back.

3. A time you felt like you were 'flying by the seat of your pants'? Explain.

Honestly with Covid I feel like every time I leave the house I am flying by the seat of my pants. I get home from a doctor's appointment and wonder will I be sick in the next 14 days?? 

4. Do you struggle with road rage or are you more of a 'Sunday driver'? Do you like to be 'in the driver's seat (literally and/or figuratively speaking) ?

I think I am more of a Sunday driver. That doesn't mean I don't get upset by some people's moves on the road.  Mark has road rage and I have to listen to it the whole time we are in the car. 

5. Something you've recently 'put the brakes on'? 

Trying to make better choices to not shop online/Amazon so much. Trying being the operative word! 

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I like your choice for favorite dish...lol. Why not enjoy them all.
I've never been much of a traveler so I have nothing to miss there. I will say though that I think I've been flying by the seat of my pants my whole life..Road rage? Me? Never...lol

Sandra said...

Amen to that last quote! Well my favorite dish it would be cranberry sauce. I have never liked to travel so I don't miss it and the only traveling I ever did was to come down to visit my mother's relatives in Florida from Savannah and I dreaded the drive because way back then at took 8 hours now it takes 6 and I still dread it. If I'm in a car I'm the driver. And I have zero road rage and Bob has 100% road rage. Apple cider and cinnamon are two of my favorite things especially hot apple cider

Martha said...

My husband has road rage too, he get's my anxiety level sky high every time I have to ride with him. I also wonder every time I leave the house if I'll be sick two weeks later.

I enjoyed all of your answers today.
We also like pecan pie.
Have a good Wednesday my friend.

Hi,
I like your random. :-)
I like pears too. We purchased some Wisconsin pears at the orchard. I dehydrated them. They turned out fantastic. I put them in my cereal and oatmeal.

I've been thinking mighty hard about butternut squash lately ... looking this way and that for the best-sounding recipes. I'm more the 'Sunday driver' type and always keep to the right, or slow to let the NASCAR wanna-be's go around. I always tell my hubby, I'd rather have them in front of me than hugging my back bumper.

Guess what I just ate three of - those dang thin peanut butter cups with semi sweet chocolate - boy are they good but how do you stop eating them.

I also ordered the dark chocolate balls on Sees (thanks again - lol) and I ordered a few for gifts. Hope I don't eat them first.

Michelle said...

Hi Debby, I love your answers and I must say I'm more of a Sunday driver while my hubby is the opposite.💖

Like your random thought; ain't that the truth! Hubby is a bit of an aggressive driver which scares me to death sometimes driving with him but he doesn't have road rage thankfully. We've learned if there is a crazy driver around us to let them just go and be done with it rather than be involved in a crash with them, etc.

Yum on the pumpkin pie! Almost that season!

Andy and I don't like to travel, and I mostly drive only around town so don't have problem with aggressive drivers. He's happy just driving up to the land and I'm happy down here...we haven't been affected much by COVID.

Joyce said...

My hubs is also impatient behind the wheel but he knows it makes me nuts so he tries. It's almost pumpkin pie time! I need a lot of whipped cream on mine. Last year we had a pumpkin cheesecake and I liked that better. Have a nice weekend Debby! I will make sure hubs sees your comment : ) It will make his day!

I agree with all your choices on the first one. And I love pumpkin pie. And pecan pie.

I miss traveling terribly, but I don't think I will be for a good long while.
