I’ve spent the week waffling about what topic I should write about, but nothing has really been jumping out at me. In a last ditch effort (my favorite kind!) to get something posted this week, I realized it might be fun to share a few things about me. This is undoubtedly due in large part … Continue reading 50(ish) Questions.
DON’T WORRY…this is not another food post, I promise. What?!? We’re in the middle of a pandemic and nothing makes you realize how mundane and cyclical your diet is like staying at home and self-isolating for four months. This then leads to the realization that you need to spice up things with more bacon and … Continue reading Never Bow To Customs Agents
BLTs are proof that bacon makes everything better because let me tell you I am not overly fond of lettuce and I hate tomatoes on my sandwiches. They make it all soggy, but that is a rant for another day. However, add BACON and suddenly, I can tolerate both. Mainly, because I know what kind … Continue reading Bacon Makes Everything Better
Holy shitballs y’all! Last week while looking for a new dessert for Fourth of July, the following words caught my attention: Chocolate Angel Food Cake. yeah…you read that correctly: CHOCOLATE ANGEL FOOD CAKE! Did you know this existed? I had no clue! Which seems very negligent of me, since angel food cake is one of … Continue reading Mmmmm…Chhhhocolate…
I know I tend to keep the politics away from here, but it feels wrong not to say something. Not to say anything. Today is July 4th, which should mean something more than just backyard BBQs, baseball, and fireworks. However, it seems odd to celebrate the birth of a nation when that nation is on … Continue reading Melting Into Oblivion
Happy National Dog Mom Day to all of you dog moms out there! Now seems as good of a day as any to jump back in to blogging, as I should have already updated you on what’s happening in my dog life. Truth be told, I have been dreading writing about it. Mainly because I’m … Continue reading The Hard Goodbye.
I guess it’s no surprise that today is National Champagne Day. According to WalletHub and International Business Times, an average of 360 million glasses of bubbly is drunk today and 25% of all champagne/sparkling wines are sold between Christmas and New Years (sidenote: these numbers are from the early 2010s but research is very scarce … Continue reading The Best Vinegar I Ever Drank
Inspiration for writing topics sometimes comes in the most unlikely of places…in this case, it was in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina. I was there for a wedding and because I’m a dumbass and didn’t actually google to see that the hotel was 2 hours from the airport, I booked a 7:30am flight … Continue reading Battle of the BBQ
Every spring my university (West Texas A&M–Go Buffs!) would hold a Ramen Contest. As I can recall (but granted, it’s been a few years), there were probably about 10 or so categories into which you could enter your recipes, such as appetizers, desserts, most creative, healthiest, cheapest, etc. For kids living off the stuff, this … Continue reading Upping Your Ramen Game
As I mentioned eons ago, last October I went to Italy. When we started researching and telling everyone about going to Italy, it seemed the one overall theme was thievery. Horror stories about people being pickpocketed and overcharged and taken advantage of at every turn started popping up everywhere and by everyone we told about … Continue reading Highway Robbery
