I’m only doing this for you Frugal
. I don’t like to participate in these kinds of interviews/sharings. However, since you mentioned, I think twice, that you know nothing about me. Here goes.
I was born in Texas, raised in California and spent over 30 years of my life as a “following to join spouse” in the U.S. diplomatic service; Haiti(2 times), Burkina Faso, Niger, Bangladesh, Mali(2 times), Rwanda, Ethiopia and Senegal. I worked those years in U.S. Embassies and hosted enormous receptions at our home. I have been married a really long time and have 2 children; boy 28, girl 14. I now live in France but rumor has it that I will be on the road again soon. I’m older than your mother and I like cats. That’s me on the left Frugal.
Who or what inspired you to start a blog?
Our son, who was then in graduate school in Paris, suggested that I start a restaurant or a blog. No contest.

Your greasiest most batter splattered cook book is?

Blogs that I like, other than Frugal’s. I don’t really want to know more, I’m just happy that these blogs are there. Don’t feel the pressure guys, do what you want.
