Blogiversary and Reaffirmations

My blog will turn 1 year old on the 7Th. Things have been super crazy here these past few weeks and I'm not sure if I'll have time to make an official blogiversary post. I figured doing one early was better than forgetting and doing none at all.

I thought in celebration of blogging for one year, I'd relay a phone conversation I had with my mother this past week. I thought it was particularly fitting since my first post on this blog was a description of why I named this blog Tomatoes for Apples. I think if anyone thought I was making an exaggeration about her crazy substitutions, this conversation should squelch any of those doubts.

Mom: So I made that meatloaf I saw while I was watching Food Network at your house.
ME: Oh?
Mom: Yeah. Except it called for crimini mushrooms. I used Portabello instead.
ME: MMM, that sounds good.
Mom: It called for bread crumbs, but I don't like bread crumbs. I used crackers instead.
ME: Sure, why not.
Mom: It was also supposed to have Fontina cheese in it. I used Feta instead. They both start with "F".
ME: (Laughing)
Mom: It was good, but I wonder what it was supposed to taste like.

    Yeah, I'm curious too. I mean I didn't get any so not only don't I know what it was supposed to taste like, I don't even know what it did taste like! Not fair, oh yeah, my sources tell me criminis are baby portabellas.

  4. I had this same conversation with your Mother. We were at work at the time so you can imagine, people were quite concerned at the water running from my eyes and the uncontrollable laughter. I understand Tomatoes for Apples.

  5. Gloria- It's so nice to be understood. hehehe!
