So remember how I was rambling off about doing the 30 days about me challenge? Well my friends as you can see (by my last post at um day 6, that was a failure.) But Allie has been successfully doing it for the last 30 days so I decided to steal (Day 25). Your day in photos. So today, I’ll only add snide comments in the caption area. I’ll give you (and me cognitively) a break from all that jazz…
You knew I couldn’t do a blog without rambling off so I’ll just add my eats and swimming workout without snide comments. I didn’t blog yesterday so I have a lot to say (but really nothing happened yesterday because I’m in a college town before everyone else has come back…)
But first Sunshine and Spice is having a giveaway. Did you know I’m a bar whore? Well now you do and she is giving away the perfect Bar. So go enter (as me of course).
Anyways like my title implies-no more comments from the peanut gallery, here is a combination of yesterday and today in photos.
For our swim team party, I was asked to make cornbread. UM…yeah I’m from the south but that doesn’t mean I specialize in that… (Or have ever even made it.) I was pretty peeved because I wanted to make something decent but I mean who doesn’t love cornbread? I love spicy things so I found one with a kick.
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/3 cups milk
1/2 cup chopped Jalapeno
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Lightly grease an 8 inch iron skillet.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar, salt, butter and vanilla until creamy. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and cornmeal. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with the milk. Beat well until\ blended.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Anywho my last point is actually about my blog. When I first started blogging, I didn’t really share my blog with too many people (besides ladies in the aerobics class.) Throughout first semester, I shared my blog with some of my closer friends but I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with people I hardly knew or sharing a link on Facebook. As this break has continued I have shared my blog with almost all my swim team and have been more and more comfortable sharing it.
Questions for you:
Do you share your blog with “the real world?”
Do you indulge in “bars”? Or have them for snacks?
On a side note-Have I mentioned it’s hell week in swimming and can’t wait to run again. More photos from Puerto Rico…
