Expand  

 

Does this question extend through Monday?

The 24th is Monday. 


22&23 :: Beverage for freezing conditions: 

An 50/50 blend of black coffee and hot chocolate (where the hot chocolate is mixed so thick a spoon will stand in it) marshmallows are not required but are quite acceptable if included. 
 

Monday [?] 24th: 

The fireplace. We had a functional wood burning fireplace when I was 7. I was allowed to tend the fire.

Saturday: it really just depends. Sometimes I want tea or hot coco. Sometimes I want something cool, especially after physical exertion.

The awful summers spent at the grandparent's house.  They had a tiny 2 bedroom cottage and us kids would sleep on the floor.  During the day we played outside on the shaded patio, hoping for a breeze.  Grandpa had made some blocks by sawing up 2x4s and there were a few small toys and some clam shells the adults used as ashtrays and that was our entertainment.  I would beg to be taken down to the library every other day to get a new book to read.  At dinner time 7 of us would gather in the kitchen around a 5ft  wide table (I still have it) and eat Grandma's depression era cooking with pickles and tomatoes from the garden.  It was boring and uncomfortable but what I wouldn't give for one more day of it.

Beverage: If I've got stuff to do it's black coffee. If not then it depends on how freezing out it is. For the really cold nights then a very small glass of something very strong. It doesn't actually warm you up, but it makes the cold easier to ignore.

 

Memory: Well, there was the chemical fire from one of our neighbors operating an illegal hazardous waste dump that got into Grandpa's corn field. I still get pretty hot when I think of that. Probably one of the big reasons I went into environmental regulations. (I know, not the answer you're looking for, but it's the first thing to pop into my mind)

What do you serve for a favorite snack?

I keep changing to different things- ?? -so there is no long running favorite (for myself to snack on).

 

Also, I never serve snacks to others. No one trusts me to make or find food for them… :mellow:

Some combination of the old standbys: cheese and crackers,  fresh veggies and dip, chips.

No particular favorites.

Beverage: Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate either way, if I don't have to drive...Irish Coffee...

 

Memory: Playing Boardgames with my parents in the caravan when we we're on vacation.

Yes!

 

Real answer, depends on my mood and craving, could be aged cheese/Salami/Hummus platter or something like chocolates or chips/crisps.

My favorites change from time to time. I do prefer snacks that have no nutritional value whatsoever, but taste WONDERFUL.
