A couple questions asked of Anne:
What one food is always in your fridge/pantry/freezer?
Lemon and lime juices. I don't love spicy foods, but the acidity of these juices give a great kick to otherwise bland meals - they go especially well on a stir-fry.
What skill or talent would you most like to have?
To be able to converse fluently in a second language. I would also love to learn American Sign Language.
What is the best adventure you’ve been on?
When I was 18 I spent a month in Ireland working at small family farms in exchange for room and board. It was a great chance to travel for cheap while getting my hands dirty and immersing in the culture!
