Sunday Stealing - Get It All Down


         Join in the Sunday fun!  Help that hangover go by visiting us

 1.  Are you a good dancer?  I'm okay.  Used to attend a modern ballet class but I was more suited to freestyle.  Still jig a little at functions.

 2.  Are you a good singer?  I'm not too bad at singing, we were always a musical family. Adore a good karaoke.  

 3.  Are you a good cook?  No.  Don't do much of that kind of thing, although I bake a little.

 4. Are you a good artist?  I used to paint murals in kid's bedrooms - football teams logos, cartoon and Disney characters  mainly.  Been over 20 years since I've lifted that kind of brush.

 5. Are you a good listener?  I tend to shut off when my hubby goes into tales of yore mode, but I'd like to think I am.

 6. What's your favourite clean word?  Bubbles.

 7. What's your favourite swear word?  Bastarding.

 8. What is your least favourite word?   Phenomenon, because it's bastarding tricky to pronounce!

 9. What was the last film you saw?  The Luzhin Defence.  

10. What football team do you support?  Stenhousemuir.

11. Have you ever been bobbing for apples?   Yup.  It's a Halloween tradition over here.

12. What's your most expensive piece of clothing?  I really cannot say.  Probably the suit I bought for funerals.

13. What was the last thing you took a picture of?  My immediate family at my son's s engagement party in April, on one of those timer mode things.

14. What was the last thing you drew a picture of?  I think I doodled some dandelions. 
15. Have you ever bought anything from eBay?  Nowt.

16. Have you invented a fairly unique meal or drink?  I mix cola and fizzy orange and call it a Mucky Puddle.  Looks as it sounds but it tastes great,  but I'm not very culinary creative.

17.  Do you have any secret family recipes?   I have a recipe for Scottish tablet that my ex mum-in-law sent me and it was the only one that ever worked but I think it was more to do with method rather than ingredients.

I have tried to make Scottish tablet but ultimately it turned into a brick. I've never had real Scottish tablet but have been told by a friend in England that I would like it, given my proclivity for eating the beginnings of fudge pre-chocolate.

You all have me curious. What's Scottish tablet?

Love your description of hubby's storytelling.

Scottish tablet sounds interesting, and Bubbles is a great word! Stealing that film, as it sounds like it's about Chess.

Scottish tablet is really like hard set fudge and takes sugar and condensed milk and vanilla essence and a very long time mixing the stuff over a boiling pan. You cannot stop stirring until a little drop in water turns fudge like. Only then will it set properly. It's hard work but delicious. It's often made and sold for charity at fete's etc. I have to post my daughter a tray down to London from time to time (she works in a dentist of all places!) as it's not available there.

Zippi - you're absolutely right, it carries a chess theme but is much more than that and highly recommended. It's from a Nabokov novel.
