Miss Chef Takes a Test

So, as I mentioned yesterday, I decided to try the Newlywed Game with Miss Chef. As with the original game show, we each tried to figure out what the other would answer to these personal questions. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I didn't know Miss Chef as well as I thought! Ah well, it's been less than a decade; I'm sure we'll have lots more time to learn!

For each question, I've written the "correct" answer, that is, what each of us would answer for ourselves. If the other person guessed something different, that follows in parentheses. So, for example, if my favorite soup were broccoli cheddar, but Miss Chef thought I liked chicken noodle, I'd write this:

Flartus: broccoli cheddar (chicken noodle)

If there are no parentheses, we got it right. I feel kinda dumb having to do an example, but with both of our answers represented, I didn't want it to get confusing!

1. She's sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen?
Flartus: PBS
Miss Chef: My Wife and Kids

2. You're out to eat; what kind of dressing does she get on her salad?
Flartus: ranch (vinaigrette)
Miss Chef: ranch

3. What's one food she doesn't like?
Flartus: seafood
Miss Chef: bleu cheese (seafood)

6. What size shoe does she wear?
Flartus: 6 1/2 (7 1/2...sometimes, depends on the shoe)

7. If she were to collect anything, what would it be? (We both had trouble answering this for ourselves!)
Flartus: Mystery Science Theater 3000 (books)
Miss Chef: bowls (books)

8. What is her favorite type of sandwich?
Flartus: peanut butter & jelly with a slice of bologna (This is the most personal thing I've ever revealed on this blog...please be gentle.)

Miss Chef: cooking (reading)

20. What is one unique talent she has?
Flartus: teaching people stuff (hearing everything someone says)
Miss Chef: cooking / seeing both sides of an issue (making sauces)

I only got 10 right, Miss Chef only got 8! Wow...funny thing is, after we'd compared answers, but before I actually tallied the results, I was under the impression that Miss Chef knew me better than I knew her. I wonder why that is? Well, if nothing else, I'm happy to know her favorite cereal! Maybe I can surprise her the next time I go grocery shopping.

Thanks for playing, and as always, feel free to stea...I mean, borrow!


  1. Just a few things...

    You have tiny feet, Flar

    Peanut butter an bologna??? Ever try Boar's Head Garlic Bologna? I won't comment on the combo since I dearly love you and feel this is some quirk you will outgrow (kidding).


    It's cool to be Russian. I am! Pass the Holuplki baby.

    Love ya'll. When can we have dinner?

  2. what the...peanut butter, bolonga - a pbbj

    whether I get the campground thing going or not, I'd hope I could get y'all to come up. Maybe rent a camper for a long weekend. Visit us if you'd enjoy the animals and the woods for a few days. I think it would be fun. Summers up here are nice.

  3. Aw, c'mon can't say the Obama thing surprised you??

  4. Now I understand why you were so excited about Jeff's fave sandwich!

    Miss Chef and I could share shoes and eat at Panera together!

    And we'll all get together and head off to some prObama rally, kay? :)

    Enjoyed this immensely!

  5. I wanted to stop by and say thank you so much for your comments on my chicken post! They were very helpful!
