I freely admit that I am a little quirky. I'm nosy. I love to people watch. I love to try to figure things out before people tell me. I'm nosy in other ways, too - I love to smell things. I know, that's kind of a weird thing to declare, but stick with me - this will hopefully get a little more normal-sounding.
When I'm cooking, I rely on my nose instead of a recipe. I periodically evaluate whatever I'm making by tasting and smelling to see if my dish needs additional seasoning. I never set a kitchen timer (much to my mom's chagrin), but just rely on my nose to tell me when to check the oven.
I do have favorite smells.
1. freshly ground coffee
2. freshly laundered sheets (my personal favorite is to wash them in bleach and detergent), preferably line-dried.
4. sesame oil
5. freshly ground ginger
6. freshly ground nutmeg
7. outside air - I love when it's warm enough to keep the windows open all night
|look what snuck in and draped itself over an IKEA chair - it's Sherry!|
8. clean kids - or a clean husband - or both :)
9. fresh limes or lemons
10. recently cut grass
What are your favorite smells? Rob thinks I'm really weird that I love to smell things - please comment and tell me you have favorite smells, too - or I'm going to get a complex! not really - I just love comments.
