Wednesday Hodgepodge

It’s Wednesday again, and since I missed last week’s Hodgepodge, I am definitely on board for this week’s!  When you’re done reading here, why not head over to Joyce’s and check out what everyone else had to say.
1. What's your favorite meal to serve on a chilly autumn evening?
I am sure that I’m not going to be alone here … but when it’s chilly outside, it’s time for chili inside.  We had cooler weather last week (back into the low 80’s this week), and I made some white chili Wednesday evening … hit the spot!
2. Are you a creature of habit? Explain.
Yes, I am.  I’ve mentioned before that I almost always have the same thing for breakfast. 
3. What food product (no longer readily available) do you remember and miss from days gone by?
You said “days” gone by, not “years” gone by, right?  ;-)  French toast bagels from Panera.  Getting bagels from Panera for breakfast is a treat here, and my very favoritest was the French toast bagel … which they recently discontinued … but only at our Panera.  I was able to have French toast bagels every morning at the Panera in Hilton Head (and in Columbia, SC on our way home).   
4. What's something you've lost that you've never been able to find? Any theories as to what happened?
I’m sure that there’s something … but obviously it wasn’t anything very important to me because I cannot remember.  Maybe it’s my memory that I cannot find!  ;-) 
5. Zoo~circus~ carnival...your favorite?
Zoo!  I love the zoo, and since these days a trip to the zoo means that I’m going with DD and the Ts, I love the zoo even more
6. What song makes you feel instantly happy?
Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.  It was getting lots of air time during the summer/fall of 1987 when DH & I were falling in love, and I cannot help but think of those days when I hear it.
7. To what extent are you an argumentative person?
More than I’d like to be but less than I used to be.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
It’s been a busy week so far and the next couple of days look to be pretty busy, too, but I’m loving it because it’s been involving time with DD and the Ts. 


  1. I love french toast bagels also! I never had Panera's though. Kevin usually gets them for me from our bagel store. I only eat 1/2 one day and the other 1/2 the next. Do you like creme cheese or butter? I like both!

  2. I still watch the movie "Dirty Dancing" at least half a dozen times a year - it just never gets old.

  3. I'm a chili eater on chilly evenings, too--and a creature of habit!

  4. Love Turkey and White Bean Chili with Buttermilk Cornbread on a chilly evening!

  5. Chili is so good when it is cold, especially with cornbread! We need to all post our favorite chili recipes, I bet we would come up with lot of new ones to try!

    Glad you have great days ahead to look forward to with the T's@ enjoy!


  6. We had the same answer for number one - but I hadn't thought of white chili. I like that too, and also taco soup. Oh, who am I kidding, I love all soups!

  7. How in the world have I never seen the French Toast Bagel? Oh goodness I need to get myself to a Panera near me and see if they have one. They sound amazing.

  8. I'm interested to know what white chili is. Is it the type of beans you use in it? :)

  9. LOL to answer number 4--I sometimes say if I had a brain I'll be dangerous. I enjoy watching over and over the same movie.

  10. I'm making veggie chili tonight for DoodleBug and friends tonight! Can't wait!

  11. #4 was just funny, thanks for the life. Chili would be good for tonight, it's cold and windy here!

  12. Never had one of those bagels. It sounds yummy.
    Just hearing that song makes me think about the movie and how much I love it!

  13. Love your fall background! I chose my "happy" song for the same reason you chose yours.

  14. Hello.. I found you from Corgi's (Betty) blog. I am a Nana named Kathy too. I just had to come over to folow and introduce myself.

    I love everything Panera and never get tired of chili. It's a comfort food for sure.

  15. I love white chili...hmmm, maybe on my menu this week. Enjoy your time with the T's : )


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
