Laughter and silliness a must.
When I make the time, I am awesome at gardening. Tomatoes, Swiss chard and basil are staples - I also often have parsley and lettuce.
I love to cook. While it would be convenient to master one or two things, I really like to explore new things. My favorite night of cooking is the night before I head to the grocery store and am forced to make a meal out of whatever odd foods are left in the fridge/pantry - most turn out ok. :]
