Fun Monday

It's a beautiful Monday once again!

Fun Monday today is What's in a Name and What's in our Plate! ;)


(1) What's in a Name?

Mariposa's Tales...

Mariposa is just a girl who loves butterfly...is a Butterfly...and in many ways!

Initially, I wanted this to called Mariposa's Tales Of Madness...but for some reason, I just stick to Mariposa's Tales...

This site holds the many stories of the life of a butterfly and that of places and people she where/ whom she flatters around.

For years now, this site has become so much part of me...so much that at some point I'm not sure what this site has become or what have I become out of it. Is it the site becoming so ME or is it the other way around? ;)

So in my URL so see it's
http://www.mariposatells.blogspot.com/ because Mariposa tells Mariposa's Tales...which are just ramblings of a butterfly lady who notices the strangest things and the simplest pleasures in life and needed a place to put them down in words...if she can find the words.

(2) What's In My Plate?

And now...what's the easiest and fastest way to Mariposa's heart is you are to pass through her stomach? I present to you Mariposa's all-time favorite, I can eat them every day of my life...LOL


These are sets of sushi and sashimi...



And this is my favorite California Maki!

Alison said...

thanks for hosting Mariposa!! Sushi is the one food I don't like!!

Mariposa said...

Alison, I have Japanese blodd so I guess that explains it! ;) A lot of people really don't like sushis and sashimis...understandable yet, the thing I love about them is I find them satisfying yet I don't feel too bloated even if I ate ALOT! :D

Celeste said...

Sushi looks so scrumptious, but I ...well, don't like it. At one of my first interviews for grad school, the professor took us to a sushi place in SF. I tried really hard to eat it, but was SOOOOoo relieved when I was able to escape (that was before I became vegetarian....a link?).

I love butterflies!

ellen b said...

Oh goody a new mr. linky where I can leave my direct link to my post which is up and ready. Thanks for hosting. The name of your blog is fun because it is open to new things as you flutter around...

ellen b said...

Is it just my computer or is something wrong with linky. When I click on a name nothing happens...

thailandchani said...

Your time zone. It's Monday already. Just two weeks ago, I was there. :)

The food looks wonderful! I'll have to give it a try.

Kaytabug said...

I liked your story on how you came up with your blog name. I love butterflies too. It's really funny that the "song" that keeps going through my head when I read your name also was making me think of you when I would hear it!

The sushi looks very nice. It looks so yummy, it makes me want to try it. But I don't like fish or seafood I can't imagine I'd like it raw. It sure looks appetizing though. :) Thanks for hosting, great topics!!

lisa marie said...

Thanx for hosting! I could never do sushi but hubby would love it. :)

Junebug said...

What a wonderful reason to write, Ms Butterfly. Also, the sushi, my children love, love, love sushi. It didn't come from me. I have only tried it once. I liked the California roll, the avocado slices were my favorite. I could get used to it though if I tried it enough.

Gattina said...

For me too it was easy to find a blogname, I just love writer's cramps , lol !

Faye said...

Now we know! So what's the origins of you name? Very unusual. I once saw teacher training demo for sushi--and it wasn't a cooking class.

-Ann said...

I can't handle sushi either. I don't like fish - raw fish gives me the creeps.

jientje said...

That sushi looks delicious!
I think today is going to be a very interesting journey!
Oh and I love butterflies too, on my Belgian blog I use them to decorate my blog!

JanMary said...

Thanks for hosting. It is a beautiful name for a blog.

I am joining in for the first time today - hope that is ok.

Solomon Broad said...

Did you know there is a Mariposa Lily?

Mariposa said...

Mariposa is the Spanish of butterfly, and well, my Mom speaks Spanish...and I do too...a little. ;)

Sushi, actually means “seasoned rice,” is often confused with sashimi, which means “sliced raw fish.” I love sushi better because it's a complete meal for me in small bites...and I can pair rice with veggies or whatever I like!

Joy T. said...

Great assignment this week Mariposa, thanks for hosting! The sushi sure does look good but I tried it once and just didn't like it. Maybe I need to try it again :o)

sid said...

I'm not a big sushi person but that looks frigging awesome.

Sayre said...

Oooo... sushi! I LOVE SUSHI!

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

I have tried and tried Sushi, but I just can't develop a taste for it for some reason...and it looks so pretty!!

Baba's Blog .. Babies Are Special said...

Thanks for sharing and mine is up..

Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

YIKES! Can you delete my messed up link? It's early, I must've cut and pasted in the wrong spot!!

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK THIS WEEK!!

:)

Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

I did notice the difference between your title and your URL and wondered if I had gotten it wrong when I mentioned you in today's post; it's nice getting a bit more explanation.

Your pictures of sushi really do make it good...s i g h...I just can't bring myself to eat it! I'm a sushi wannabe...!

:)

Mariposa said...

Robin, I don't how to delete it...LOL

Just leave it there...and for everyone's info, I have the list of people who signed-up added too here and #48 is empty, I deleted it because it's porn!

markira said...

Is this my first Fun Monday entry? I think it might be!

Got here by way of min at MamaDrama...will definitely look around.

Hate sushi. Have tried. Hate. mk

Ivanhoe said...

Hello there:
Happy Fun Monday! You could not get me to eat sushi (or anything raw), but it looks beautiful on the plate...

thefoodsnob said...

Thanks for hosting, and nice name.
I LOVE sushi and sashimi, pretty much all Japanese food.
I will have to have some today!

Lisa

Hootin' Anni said...

I knew what Marisopa meant 'cause in Arizona they have a county named after you!!!

Loved your entry.

nikki said...

Not a sushi fan, but I think it's a beautiful dish.

Anna said...

I wanna play!!!

Karina said...

I am up!

I love sushi too, could eat it every day as well (and I don't have Japanese blood) haha...

Thanks for hosting!

Heather said...

Unfortunately, I'm not a sushi fan. but it looks great!

Heather said...

I'm up for Fun Monday, but for some reason it is not showing in the links. I'll try again!

janet said...

mine is up too, but the linky wont show on the list for some reason. i tried twice :-(

and me? i loooooooove sushi!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Mine is up too but it's not showing on the top linky.

Ah well.

I love veggie sushi, it is so gorgeous. And I really enjoyed this Fun Monday. Thank you so much Mariposa.

Sauntering Soul said...

Thanks for hosting this week. Great topics!

Your blog name is beautiful. Sushi? Not so beautiful to me. I won't eat cooked fish or seafood, much less raw. :-)

My post is up as well, but when I tried to enter my link nothing happened.

Carrie Sue said...

Thanks for hosting, I like sushi too!

Donetta said...

Thank you for hosting. This is a refreshing meme. I have enjoyed playing.
My 6 year old and I eat susi while my husband and daughter have pizza! My boy says "hi' ya' futimaki!"
We and I share the pleasure of a healthy meal. :)

ellen b said...

Mariposa,
I doubled on clicking on Mr. Linky, Yikes my finger got away from me. Sorry for my redundancy!

Sandy said...

Thanks so much for hosting and for this topic. I also love the way sushi looks - I just don't like the way sushi tastes. I'll just enjoy it as an art form...lol.

JennV said...

This is my first Fun Monday so I'm just hoping that I did it right. My post is up too.
I found my way here through Jerri and Jennifer.

Sushi... Yummmmm!

IamwhoIam said...

Thanks for being our host -
Wasn't it nice of Matel to make a Barbie just for you.
If Sushi and Sashimi are common at your house what would be exotic?

saramason said...

No thanks to sushi, but to be fair, I have never tried it!

ChrisB said...

You did a great job hosting this week~ do we know who is next weeks host?

I know that it is very healthy but I'm afraid sushi is is not something I have ever develped a taste for, my daughter loves it and has tried to convert me!

ChrisB said...

My post is up but I don't understand why my link is not showing on your list!

Sandy said...

I linked twice, ma'am, and I'm still not showing up. Help, please!

Robyn Jones said...

I am not a huge sushi fan...I don't know why but I think it is because someone tricked me into thinking it was cake once when I was six... (it was sliced up like cake, and colored in differrent colors....)

BTW...I left a FUn monday because as usual I didn't read the fine print, and didn't realize you had to sign up...sigh - so sorry...

Heather said...

Oh, I am so sorry about the multiple links. Terribly embarrassed. this is my first time with Mr. Linky - I'll try not to make hte same mistake again!

rob said...

Good fun monday! shame mine is so dull!

Jan said...

Great post, and thanks for hosting. I'll eat most Japanese food, but always skip the sushi. I like food cooked. I think it's an age thing. My kids and grandkids eat sushi.

saramason said...

Hmmm...Mr Linky seems to be onery today. Mine's not showing up either?

Mamalang said...

Thanks for hosting! Good topics.

What does lang mean in your area?

janet said...

who is hosting next week? i can if no one else volunteered......

Sandy said...

still trying to get my link to work...lol

Mariposa said...

Is blogger down? I'm having a hard time visiting sites and posting comments.

lisa marie said...

I commented on the sushi but not your name. I love flutterbys too and the way you came upon your name is so neat! I enjoy every visit to your cocoon. :) Thanx again for hosting ♥

Mariposa said...

Janet of http://fromtheplanetofjanet.blogspot.com/ will host next week's Fun Monday.

I will post it later. Blogger is giving me a headache...LOL

Irish Coffeehouse said...

Thank you for hosting- and a perfect pick too!

I think your name is terrific- it can literally be a melting pot for whatever is on your mind. :)

I had sushi for the first time ever this past September. It was YUMMY! :)

Mariposa said...

Guys I have I guess temporarily alleviated our problem with Linky here...I am really SORRY for the mess!

So, you can now see the links and for those who have not signed-in yet, I put up another Linky for you...the intention is just to show ALL your links...and those who signed up earlier, in my post Fun Monday challenge...you can see the links there too...Hahaha, I had to upgrade my Linky to accomodate the changes.

Willowtree said...

Thanks for Hosting, you did a great job. Sushi...yum...

Willowtree said...

I disappeared of the list somehow, never mind, it's all over now anyway.

Mariposa said...

Willow,
Ooppss...I just added to the new one...I think the link you're referring to was the original one...

swampy said...

Thanks for being the hostess with the mostess.
My Fun Monday favorite dish will continue tomorrow. Be sure to stop by.

mem said...

Grabe sarap ng sushi talaga!

mama speak said...

Mmmmm Sushi!!! It's one of two things I really couldn't have when pregnant. Not being able to have red wine and sushi were the only down sides to pregnancy for me.

Best sushi/sashimi I ever had was on my honeymoon; 2001 Big Island of Hawaii in a bar. Ordered tuna salad (sashimi over lettuce). OH.MY.GAWD. was it good. I swear it had a name 2 mins before it was on our plate, that's how fresh it was. It literally melted in our mouths. DaddySpeak was totally eyeing mine when he finished & I was like "it was sickness & health baby, but there was nothing about lunch in there!"
I may have to go get some for lunch tomorrow now. YUM!

Thanx for hosting BTW!

Asthmagirl said...

I haven't been able to wrap my head around sushi. But it looks beautiful!

Melanie said...

That looks so yummy and the name of your blog is beautiful! I had no idea what Mariposa meant.

Tien said...

god! I'm sorry I'm soooo late! A thousand apologies! Anyway, I'm up. Good one, your answers :D

my4kids said...

I am a shushi fan and those look good!
I like the blog name.

Irish Coffeehouse said...

Hey, did you see the new Barbie doll? It's labeled Mariposa!
