Foodie Facebook: Cheri

It was Cheri's stunning photography that first drew me to her blog, Kitchen Simplicity, but her warm and friendly nature that kept me coming back.

For a self-professed kitchen 'amateur', Cheri certainly can turn out some gorgeous food. There are days when I think about hopping on a plane to Oslo just so I can get in on some of it.

Hey, it can't be that much colder in Norway than it is now in Canada, right?

Name: Cheri

Place: Oslo, Norway

Occupation: Mom

UtHC: What is your earliest childhood food memory?

When I was 3 or 4 my imagination got the better of me and I could not get myself to eat scrambled eggs. To me all the shapes looked like little animals. A plate full of little sheep, puppies and kitties. How could my mom expect me to eat such cute little creatures? Eventually, I was able to get it out of my head and now I enjoy eggs almost daily.

UtHC: What did you eat today?

Breakfast: Eggs and Toast (see daily!)
Lunch: Shrimp and Asparagus Penne
Supper: Tacos
And a couple of truffles sprinkled throughout. :)

UtHC: What will your kids never be allowed to eat?

Can their own feces be an answer? I cannot count the number of times that I have had to stop my son from putting his hands in his mouth after waving them around in the forbidden poopy zone while I change his diaper. So far no feces has been eaten.. that I know of.

Other then the obvious, I don't know if there is anything that I wouldn't allow my kids to eat EVER, but on a daily basis we keep things fairly healthy. And, homemade is always best. :)

UtHC: What do you always have on hand in your fridge?

My fridge is pretty tiny. I am 5'4" and can see over the top of it, and it includes a freezer! So my fridge does not stay stocked with too much outside of the basics, like milk and eggs. I shop every couple days to last only a couple of days. It took me a while to get used to it but on the bright side, nothing goes to waste! :)

UtHC: What is you beverage of choice?

Water. I know, how boring! I wish I could say something else, but I am just not that exciting. Nothing quenches thirst to me like water and it is not very often that I crave something different.

UtHC: If you could have dinner with anyone n the history of man, who would it be?

I would have to say Jesus. Anyone who can turn water into wine and make a meal for one stretch to thousands is very welcome at my table.
Besides, I love Him and would love to see His smile.

UtHC: OK, it's your last meal ever, what do you have?

Hands down my mothers Turkey dinner. Nothing beats a classic.

Ed Note: Thanks so much, Cheri!! A very Happy New Year to you, with side of turkey & cranberry sauce, too!

Thanks for the introduction. Lovely photos indeed. And since my youngest is all about putting her hands in her diaper I can understand her limitations on food.

Being Cheri's sister I am laughing. His own poop hehehe also hands down to moms dinner. Cheri, it would be mine too. Cheri is my food hero and a wonderful sister thanks for featuring her.
