218 Days ’til 40: What Spice Are You?

18 Jul


Oregano is the spice of life ~ Henry J. Tillman

So, today I was thinking of fun things.  I love the quotes that talk about friends being the spices of life.  I love comparing myself and others to various spices.  I think that, depending on my mood, I could be many different spices.

There are times when I can be like garlic……  a bit of a punch, yet good for you.

There are times when I feel like cinnamon, a great spice for curry or for cookies.

My girls can often be like cayenne pepper – hot and full of personality (which is usually a good thing!)

Today, 218 days ’til 40, I am thankful for the people who are the spice of life!  What spice are you???

    aniseed … is sweet and a little spicy and you can do a multitude of things with it … from alcohol over smelly oils to liquorice a perfect little special something

    Variety is the spice of life, and ambiguity is the soup of the day.

    Perhaps I’m garam masala – quiet and unassuming, not super popular, but happy with Indian food?

    I love this! If I were a spice I would say on my good days, I’m basil… Kind of sweet, but with a zesty kick for life. But, on my bad days, I’d be black pepper… full of darkness and when people get near me I just push them away with my intensity (you know… the sneeze factor :)) This really is a fun way to look at ourselves.

    Pepper – only add a little otherwise it’s overwhelming! And unbearable!

    I would definitely be dill! An outgoing Jewish girl with a personality as big as her hair…you might think “too much” at first, but then come to love it.

    I think I’m paprika, if only down to the quantity of it I eat. It comes in as many varieties as my moods – sweet, hot, smoked. Though, I’m rarely sweet. Hot-tempered, perhaps. And smoked… I don’t even know what I was trying to say with that one!

    Oregano and cinnamon immediately come to mind when I ask this question.

    Onion for cooking…. Candied ginger for personality

    Black pepper with brown lentils. Otherwise, red chilli. Actually, I used to dislike chilli until I lived in Sichuan Province in China. I understand it can become addictive, though that hasn’t happened to me – yet!
