I think a lot of people know this about me because I talk about Nebraska all the time. I just can't help myself. Folks from my state are proud to be Cornhuskers and, honestly, I think Nebraska gets a bad rap for no good reason. I like trying to set the record straight. For example, did you know that without Nebraska, the world wouldn't have the 9-1-1 emergency alert system, Kool-Aid or SPAM? Yeah. Think about that! :)
I assume my love for cooking stems from my love for creating. I cook most of our evening dinners and take great pride in being able to feed my family nutritious meals I made myself. Sometimes I use a cookbook, sometimes I don't. Some of my favorite recipes are those I created from scratch :)
8. I hate peas.
I kinda think they shouldn't be allowed to exist. That's how much I hate them.
Okay, my most favorite restaurant of all time EVER is Taco Inn. Some might call it a shitty, little taco place in Lincoln, Nebraska, but to me, it's pure gold. Not only do I eat there multiple times when I go home, but Taco Inn is usually my first stop when I'm in town. As in, I get off the plane and head straight to the restaurant. No hugging the parents, no saying hello to friends, no stopping for photos. It's shameful, I know, but at least I own it.
It's funny now, but at the time, it wasn't. The night before Cliff and I were supposed to leave for an early-morning flight, I got food poisoning. Like, really bad food poisoning. By the time we got to the airport, I was so ravaged I could barely stand. Afraid that we might not be able to get on the plane if folks knew I was ill, we told everyone I was pregnant. Before I knew it, I was sitting in a wheel chair at the front of the security line with a cup of ice chips in my hand. I was treated like a princess. I only wish I could have been well enough to actually enjoy it!
