    Great answers! I know how you feel about childhood adversity and it turning you into a book worm!

  2. Mother says:

    You are a credit to your adversity…So glad you are doing well now. I love to cook, too. I love the Chew, (although they probably cook too much meat for your tastes… they are fun to watch and cook a variety.

    • Hi Mother,

      Thank you so much!

      I love watching cooking shows and it doesn’t matter to me about the meat, because I always learn something. I’ve watched Chew a few times and enjoyed it.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing!
