Usually it is the first one...take it in stride (I am an Optimist, but I also believe in Murphy's law...)....but I have all of those reactions at
one point or another probably.

Foodie Question(s):
Do you pay much/any attention to your salt intake?
Sure...a little bit, but I don't stress about it too much.
Can you name anything you stopped eating because it was too salty?
I rarely eat fast food, because of how bad it is....I rarely eat canned soup because of the sodium (and taste!)
Any foods you
are likely to add salt to?
I add it to taste often. I usually need to add it to eggs and potatoes or popcorn.
What's your most frequent salty craving(s)?
I like olives and pickles a lot. And sometimes I get a craving for potato chips, corn chips
or french fries.


Just for fun:

Big or small, can you think of any lost opportunity/ies you heard of or experienced yourself?
I am sure there has been many a time...but I can't think of a darn one right now!( I do hate drama or confrontation, so sometimes I can remain quiet instead of engaging into a subject that would cause drama or confrontation.)

Have a wonderful Thursday all!

Big or small, can you think of any lost opportunity/ies you heard of or experienced yourself? When I interviewed for my first full-time job after getting out of school, I had 2 job offers. I always wondered what would have happened if I had taken the other job with a large, national company as opposed to the small start-up I ended up working for. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Enjoy your Friday Eve!

Happy Thursday! I'm pretty sure I'll be home doing paperwork tomorrow. Tonight was the first time my Outback couldn't make it up the driveway. I slid off into the ditch and had to ask for help to get it out. I will say the snow is really pretty though.
