Just For Fun

On meno's blog she was participating in a meme, about food, from peevish. You are to take each letter from your blogging name and give a little food fact to go with it.

Since my name is already an acronym, I'll give you what it really stands for first.

T is for Temper
T is for Tantrum
Q is for Queen

A nickname given to me from a boyfriend long ago that has always stuck and has been my online name for about ten years. I'm still very spoiled, but my temper has calmed, or maybe I married a man who gives me more than enough love, affection and free time.He also firmly believes that I am princess and should be treated as such.

Now onto the foods:

T is Tea (Herbal Teas for health) Naturally Flavored teas for unsweetened ice tea . No sugar, lots of lemon

T is Tiramisu. I love desserts! Tiramisu is an Italian dessert typically made from sponge finger biscuits, espresso coffee, mascarpone cheese, eggs, cream, sugar, Marsala wine, cocoa, and rum. The Italian name tiramis├╣ means "pick-me-up" (metaphorically, "make me happy,"), a reference to the two caffeine-containing ingredients, espresso and cocoa


The biscuits are sprinkled with or briefly soaked in a mixture of coffee, rum, and sugar. They are layered with a mixture of mascarpone cheese and zabaglione, a custard made from egg yolks, Marsala, and sugar. Cocoa powder is then sprinkled on top Tiramisu has become one of the most popular desserts served in restaurants of all types, not just Italian restaurants. The recipe has been adapted into cakes, puddings, and other varieties of dessert. Other flavors are often used now in place of coffee, including strawberry, lemon, or chocolate.

Q is for Quail: Such an nice little compact poultry, and they make really cool looking edible eggs too.

Which makes me ponder , is there any kind of bird eggs that can not be eaten, no matter what the size?

I was wondering what you were going to do for Q, while i was sitting here drinking my tea.

Quail eggs ARE pretty.
