Caturday quickies: The super sweet blogging award


Caturday Quickies

So here I am, almost a month later, and I’m finally getting around to taking care of this sweet little bit of business.

I got another blogging award!

So here are the rules:

  1. I must thank the person who nominated me.
  2. I must answer five Super Sweet questions.
  3. I must include the Super Sweet Blogging Award pic in my blog post.
  4. I must nominate a baker’s dozen of deserving bloggers.
  5. I must notify my nominees on their blogs.

The thanks

Super Sweet thanks to Lord David Prosser of the Barsetshire Diaries!

The questions:

Cookies or cake?

Will I be considered an anarchist if I say pie?  Pie is, as Phil likes to say, the perfect dessert. Cherry, banana cream, and apple and cranberry praline are my faves.

Chocolate or vanilla?

Vanilla.  Love vanilla beans.  Cut one open and pop it into your sugar.  The flavour will infuse.  Awesome for all kinds of things.  My fave ice cream is the vanilla with the flecks of vanilla bean in it.  It’s also a fab accompaniment to the above-mentioned pie 🙂

Favourite sweet treat?

I’m not really a sweet tooth (believe it or not).  Most nights we don’t have any dessert around here, or maybe I’ll just grab a piece of fruit.

I have a weakness for pie crust though (sensing a pie theme here?).  I once made an all-crust pie with some friends 🙂  In recent years, though, I find plain crust isn’t enough, so I’ll have to go for pettes de soeur, or nun’s farts.

French-Canadians must also be fans of crust.  When they make a pie, instead of tossing all those little scraps of dough, they collect them, roll them out, slather with butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  The pastry dough is then rolled, sliced into disks, and baked like cookies.

Can I just say—nom!

When do you crave sweet things the most?

Um, I’m a woman in her early forties already getting pre-menopausal symptoms.  When do you think I crave the sweet stuff?  I’m at the mercy of my hormones, people!

Super sweet nickname?

I don’t really have any nicknames.  There’s Smelly, of course, but I don’t think that’s very sweet.  Phil calls me Mellie, and sometimes adds on a –boo or –belly, so I think I’ll have to go with that.

  1. Thanks so much for taking part Melanie and for sharing with us your predeliction for ‘Nun’s Farts’. I just can’t imagine someone going into a shop and asking for “Some Nun’s Farts please” at least not without laughing I can’t.
    Huge Sunday Hugs to you and I hope your nominees give you as much fun as mine.

  2. Oooh! A sweet treat, and that too on a Sunday!
    I almost spluttered out my coffee at reading about Nun’s Farts. 😀

    Leaving for a hike now (finally some sunny weather in the Rockies), but I’m already looking forward to exploring the other interesting blogs you’ve mentioned, and to pass on the sweetness to thirteen new ones.

    Happy writing!
