I thought it was really cool in Amelie how they list every character's likes and dislikes. Like Amelie, I love to crack creme brulee. This Spanish restaurant in downtown San Diego used to burn the sugar with a hot poker. It made a ton of smoke and was really cool to watch. Patrons didn't like the smoke and they stopped doing it that way :(.
I also really love the sound of jars popping, a few hours after you've canned something like marmalade or jam. It's so much work to prepare the fruit, the jars, all the heat, etc. And you're sitting on the couch tired and you can hear success happening one pop at a time going on in the kitchen.
I like having to add an extra leaf to the dining room table. It means company or family is coming.
