Bringing Back the Meme ...

Hektik Lyfe from The Silent Podium tagged me with this little meme earlier in the week. The task is to post ten things I love that begin with the letter B. We're free forming the rules on this one, so rather than tagging people - if you'd like to play, leave a comment and I'll assign you a letter. You can link back to me in your answer post. This one has been making the rounds on the web in recent weeks and its fun to see such a wide variety of answers. Try to contain your excitement while I list mine ...

Ten Things I Love That Begin with the Letter "B":

1. Breakfast - in all is glorious forms ... even pumpkin waffles.

2. Bacon - need I say more? Of course not.

3. Blondie - The group ... what can I say, I'm generationally predisposed.

4. Baked Potatoes - and they don't even have to be laden with bbq and cheese, but it doesn't hurt.

5. Brown Bread - of the Irish variety, I'll post a recipe for it next month.

6. Butter - Real Butter. Salted, unsalted, its all good.

7. Brightblack Morning Light - didn't see that one coming, did you? (Some audio here if you're interested.)

8. Baking - obviously.

9. Being a Diva - I know you saw *that* coming.

10. Blogging!

Not to mention blue cheese, bubble baths, boxty and, no doubt, someday ... Botox. If you've got a blog and want to play, shout out in the comments.

So, what's your favorite thing that begins with the letter B? Bodacious Diva wants to know!

Can you imagine a bacon-barbecue-cheese baked potato? Droooolll...

Astra Libris said...

Mmmm, I'm with you on brown bread!! YUM!! I loooove brown bread!

Thanks for playing along! I really like butter too. I actually like "I can't believe it's not butter!" too. Have you tried that? It actually tastes good.

Much better than margarine.

Blonde Duck - oh yes I can! I sort of had that when I was in Alabama last fall, though it had BBQ chicken as well. Scrumptious!

Astra - I know, its so comforting. I haven't made it in ages, but will do so for St. Patrick's Day.

Hektik - no problem, it was fun! I think my father in law stocks the I Can't Believe its Not Butter - so I've had it once or twice at his place. Not bad, but I must admit I prefer real butter or none at all. LOL

Great list! That is a great looking waffle too. Lets see, what B word do I love --- I'll pick -- biggest loser -- I love that show!

Barbecue...hands down! And, I will admit to being a butter hound.

Duo - thanks! The pumpkin waffles were delicious if I do say so myself. :)

Deb - excellent list. Well done! I love that you included your blankie ... I should have thought of that. Nice! :)

Juliet - I should really check that show out. Its so popular and I've never seen it. Must be inspirational, huh?
