Who is the Meal Planning Mom – The mom behind the website?

I saw this on another blog and thought it was great.

50 (make that 25) things about me that may or may not surprise you…

I have a Webkinz and I log in almost every day.

I love frozen French fries.

My favorite candy is Sour Patch Kids and I border on addicted on them.

I don’t always feel like cooking.  Even I have days when I dread it.

I didn’t see snow fall from the sky until I was 26.

If you put a US map in front of me, I might know where 10 states are.  And don’t ask me to point out the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean.

I get lost even with a GPS.

I was willing to have as many kids as necessary to ensure my daughter had a sister.

From the time I thought about MenuForTheWeek.com until the time I bought the domain name was less than 15 minutes.

My 6 year old is convinced that I’m famous and tells everyone she meets – embarrassing.

I work 2 days a week as a geology tech for an oil company.  It’s the only non-domestic thing I do.

I once had a cookie business that did very well.  I was maxed out at the number of cookies I could make.

I love public speaking, which is the number one phobia; flying, not so much.  I’d actually rather speak in front of 10,000 people than get on an airplane.

I used to belly dance.

My sisters and I all have matching tattoos on our back.  I still claim mine was a result of peer pressure from my middle sister – she’s very convincing.  I do not, however, regret it.

I cook a lot of things that never make it to the menu – flops.  We’ve even had to order pizza.

I love getting new cleaning supplies and trying them out.  That makes me outright weird.

I have a bucket of list of things I eventually want to make; homemade flour tortillas are at the top.

I hate drama on any level and go to great lengths to avoid it.

My number 1 goal is to have a bestselling cookbook one day and endorse a major brand of food.

I could put cream cheese in everything I cook and be happy with it.

If I could only have 1 food for the rest of my life, it would be gumbo – which ironically enough is too time consuming to put on the menu.  Next would be boiled crawfish.  They might be first if they weren’t so hard to peel.

I truly believe that food cooked with love tastes better.

I’ve had to eat the words, “My kids will never….,” more times than I care to count.

I’m OCD about dinner going on the table at 6:00.  It’s always within 5 minutes of 6:00.

This list started out as 50 things about me, but I got bored with myself around 25.  I feel blessed to have a relatively boring life (that drama thing.)

So, now you can put some facts behind the face.
