Z Is For Zaftig

Maybe not a word you are familiar with.
It means to be voluptuous or pleasantly plump.
Like every woman in my family, except me.
I don't have a problem with it, but my mother does. She has gotten so tired of being zaftig, she is getting a Gastronal Bypass Surgery.

Honestly, I will miss the hugs. She currently gives the best ones. Will they change as she gets smaller?
Can men be zaftig?????

  1. zaftig, huh? Can't say I'd like to be described as that either....but I am on my way :-(
    Thanks for posting a new word for me to learn.

  2. Hi Freda,
    Never heard that word before, but I'm one of those zaftig people. Thanks for sharing a new word. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  3. That's a new word for me too. If I were zaftig, I wouldn't want to be called it.


  4. A new word and I love your definition. No, I don't believe men can be considered voluptous, women have a monopoly on that delicious word.

    Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge. It was quite a ride.

    My Z is for ... Zetsudai no doryoku osuru

  5. I love new words. Definitely not a word to describe me.

    Congrats on completing the challenge.

  6. That's a new word for me. I'm not sure if I's a compliment or not, though.

    Thanks for being a part of this year's Challenge. I especially appreciate the comments you left on my posts.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
