Fridays Feast


Appetizer
What is your favorite fruit?
Without question, mangoes. But not the red-skinned, sour, fibrous Indian mangoes -- you haven't lived until you've tasted the Philippine variety. It's golden yellow, sweet and succulent. I could literally live on mangoes and mangoes alone.

Soup
Who is someone you consider as a great role model?
Anyone but Paris Hilton... :) Seriously though, speaking of celebrity role models, I think Leonardo di Caprio is shaping up to be a good one. He's fabulously talented yet doesn't seek out the spotlight. He's good looking but doesn't rely on his looks to get ahead. He cares passionately about the state of politics and the environment, and he's not all talk -- he backs it up with action.

Salad
If you were to spend one night anywhere within an hour of your home, where would you choose?
We are so lucky to live within a hour of some really wonderful places: the hauntingly beautiful Mendocino Coast (think of the Julia Roberts movie "Dying Young"), the funky hip culture of Santa Cruz and the sophisticated urban vibe of San Francisco. Each of these places has fantastic food, fun things to do and luxurious accommodations. It's hard to choose between them, but if you held a gun to my head I would pick Santa Cruz.

Main Course
Name something you do too often.
It's a tie -- watching too much TV or spending too much time surfing online. In fact, I should be in bed right now.

Dessert
Fill in the blank: I really like ___________ because ____________.
I really like the view from my bedroom window because when I wake up, I look out the window and I see nothing but green leaves and blue sky.

Enjoyed your feast, especially your soup, salad, and dessert.

I agree with your main course. It's after 1:00 am so off to bed for me.

Back in my single days, I went on a very romantic date in Santa Cruz, and then later but just as romantic, I went again with my future husband. I just love that town. My sister was a nanny in Palo Alto, an old boy friend lived in San Jose and my Aunt and Uncle in San Ramon, which is why I was that neighborhood.

Brilliant answers! I especially like what you said about Leo - I just knew there was a valid reason to love that guy and you put it into words for me ;-)

Happy Friday. I love fresh mangoes, but the ones we get here in south Georgia were picked years ago so they can ripen on the way here (okay.. so I exagerate just a little...lol). My great-aunt lived in Palo Alto. I always loved the name!
