The 23/5 Meme

I have been tagged by both Punky from Busy Nights Real Food AND the wonderfully named Sarah Lou at One Whole Clove for the 23/5 meme.

1. Delve into your archives.
2. Find your 23rd post (or close to it).
3. Find the 5th sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog, with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext and hidden agenda.
5. Tag 5 people to do the same.

My 23rd post was written last September. It is for a Shrimp dip that Scott's family makes for special occasions. The 5th line is:


Um, I don't think I will be able to find any meaning, subtext, or agenda in that. That whole post was simply the recipe for the dip.

Let's go back to my 20th post. The fifth sentence:

Please help my deepest birthday wish become a reality.

Now that's more like it. This post was written shortly before my birthday. I had just discovered that Anthony Bourdain's cookbook Les Halles had been released early. I desperately wanted it and hoped that Scott or someone in my family would buy it for me for my birthday. I have an unholy crush on the man, and NEEDED have this book. I did receive the book for my birthday and read it over and over again. Have I cooked anything out of it? That is a different story. I smell an upcoming Weekend Cookbook Challenge!

I know tons of people have had this meme already. So please forgive me if you have already been tagged. I'll tag Kitchen Hand at What I Cooked Last Night, Alicat at Something So Clever, Liz at Truffle Mutt and Linda at Kayak Soup.

Hi Sara. Thank you for the tag. I also love AB and his book kitchen confidential has a lot to do with why I am where I am today.
