A - Z: Melissa Good Taste

A is for age: I turn 30 on May 5th! Cinco de Mayo - Mexican and Margaritas in celebration of course!

B is for breakfast today: Nothing. I don't really drink coffee anymore so I just charged into my day without stopping in the kitchen first.
C is for currently craving: Caramel Budino from Artisan in Paso Robles. It is probably the best dessert I have ever had in my life.

D is for dinner tonight: I am not sure yet. I am craving something Italian so maybe spaghetti.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Paddle Surfing, jogging and riding my horses. 

F is for an irrational fear: I am claustrophobic so anything that has to do with that gets me really scared.
G is for gross food: I am not a fan of Corned Beef and Cabbage. The smell of it cooking really makes me feel nauseous. Isn't that weird? 
H is for hometown: The very historic San Juan Bautista, CA.

I is for something important: Communication and a positive attitude. I have learned that nothing is as important than those two things. So lets put on a smiling face and communicate. I just made that little rhyme up, did you like it?
J is for current favorite jam: I don't think about jam much but strawberry on a well buttered  toast is heavenly.

K is for kids: Scott and I have tons of them! All horses, plus one adorable weiner dog, Willy.
L is for current location: Ojai, CA

M is for the most recent way you spent money: On dry cleaning. You have to have your shirts and jeans looking good. Starchy, starchy!

N is for something you need: I need my family and friends to be happy and healthy! It is the most important thing for me because I love them all so much!
O is for occupation: Domestic goddess and wonderful wife of the very talented Scott Weis, cutting horse trainer.

P is for pet peeve: When things are out of place. I try to be very organized and neat.
Q is for a quote: "I'm so optimistic I'd go after Moby Dick in a row boat and take the tartar sauce with me." - Zig Ziglar

R is for random fact about you: I was accepted into every college I applied to and went to probably the least desirable one to step myself out of my comfort zone.  Go Fresno State Bulldogs!

S is for favorite healthy snack: A handful of roasted nuts really keeps me going!
T is for favorite treat: Does there only have to be one? I love a good risotto, it must be the Swiss in me. It is so comforting!

U is for something that makes you unique: I am the Cowgirl Barbie who blogs about food, it doesn't get much more unique than that. To know me, is to love me! 
V is for favorite vegetable: That is a tough one. I love every squash imaginable. But, onions are probably my most favorite because I use them in my everyday cooking. Nothing better than caramelized onions!!

W is for today’s workout: Buzzing around town and the ranch getting errands done before we leave for a 3 week trip to Texas for a horse show.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Teeth. These chompers are as close to perfect as you can get!

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Having a great evening with my husband over Mexican food and fine conversation. I love you honey!

Z is for your time zone: Pacific Standard Time.
