Gigi Fitzgerald's Top Ten Favorite Things

by Gigi Fitzgerald

Coming in June! Allergic to Death available now

from the Gourmet De-Lite series by Peg Cochran

10. The food processor I spent a fortune on hoping that Gigi’s Gourmet De-Lite would take off.
9.   My stack of Wedding Splendor Magazines with my name on the masthead.
8.   My pajamas with the reindeer on them my mother gave me for Christmas when I was in college.

7.   The caricature an artist did of me at a street fair back when I was in grade school.
6.   The wooden salad bowl my grandfather made my grandmother.

5.   The gold cross and chain my mother gave me for my first Communion.

4.  The fireman’s badge my father wore before he was killed fighting a fire.
3.   My bright red MINI Cooper which I sold my engagement ring from my cheating, no-good, ex-husband to buy.

2.   My cottage which is tiny but perfect

AND Number 1
My dog Reg – a most adorable and loving Westhighland white terrier.


  1. Things? We would like to point out that dogs are really small, furry family members... Woof!

  2. Fascinating list, Gigi. I would certainly put my Siamese cats Brie and Edam at the top of my list (with apologies to Sally-Forth and Tally-Ho). Of course, my cats believe they're always first!

  3. Yes, of course, dogs are not "things." Gigi was thinking of that song "My Favorite Things" -- you know whiskers on kittens and warm woolen mittens, etc.!

  4. Lovely list, and good for you to sell your wedding ring and use the money for something great! I am looking forward to reading this series.
