Tostada Time!


Have you heard of the book, The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman?  Any book that over-simplifies love and all that it entails could be trite, but this one often helps to put things in perspective. 

BLOG READER:  What the heck does this have to do with food, oh great blogger of all things yummy?

TREK OR TREATS:  Grasshopp-uh;  you should know by now that kitchen ninjas, such as yourselves, can activate all 5 love languages at once: physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, & receiving gifts.

BLOG READER:  Sensei, you digress.

I have to say that, for me, to create is to show love.  Likewise, when someone creates something especially for me – I feel the love.  From macaroni necklaces fashioned by former students - to this tasty tostada creation assembled for me by my darlin’ – that’s feeling the love right there.  Side note – he is a master of the mise en place.

I’d love to know with what love language you identify! Take this quiz to find out, and feel free to share your findings.
