I Can’t Say “Thank You” Enough!
Thank you! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (That’s to WordPress, incase they’re still reading.) As I drove to my state’s capital yesterday for my championship swimming conference, little did I know, my blog was being promoted to a whole new level! WordPress chose me to be a “Freshly Pressed” blogger on the home page, which resulted in lots of new readers!
Welcome to all the newbies. I hope you’ll read my “ME” page, and some old posts. My personal favorites have been the Strawberry Galette, Mango Salsa, and Ethiopian Injera Flatbread. The food has been fabulous (mostly ;)) this summer, so I hope you’ll stay long enough to steal a new recipe.
If you aren’t a regular with the food blogs, you’re probably like, “What in the world is this picture about!?” It’s me, duh. Getting a little inappropriate with my favorite summer fruit – papaya! Papaya transports me straight to Hawaii. My family frequents Maui, and we (especially my papa & myself) can’t get enough of this tropical fruit. This picture is for Chocolate-Covered Katie’s “Hug A Fruit” month, where fruit-lovers can share their favorites, and some funny pictures.
I call this one, “Tomato with Papaya Baby.” I’m bright red for the following reasons:
1) I’m wearing a sweatshirt in 90% humidity.
2) I’m wearing a sweatshirt when it’s 93 degrees.
3) I just carried a giant load of groceries from the car to the kitchen.
4) I’m a little embarrassed about asking my mother to photograph me with a papaya.
5) Mother took about 2 seconds too long to take the photograph, resulting in my frustration.
Since my last swim meet of the season was yesterday, summer is about to change gears again. Excersize-wise, I’ll probably be running and walking my puppy more. I’m also headed to NYC soon, for a summer camp. My Advanced Placement scores from the spring should be arriving any day now . . . which makes me think of school.
Looking forward, there are still a couple of summer reading books that I’ll have the distinct honor (snicker) of reading. One is 1984, and the other is The Poisonwood Bible (shudder). I’ll just stick to finishing the seventh Harry Potter for now.
Finally, there is that little goal on my “ME” page, did you happen to catch that? I wrote about clearing out my “to-make list,” so that I could be recipe free! I’m coming closer to the end, with only 10 of the original 60+ recipes to make. It’s guaranteed that I’ll throw in some impulse recipes before the end of the summer, but I’m going to finish this list!
Q: What goal are you striving towards? (answer even if your name is “mommy,” please :))
