Despite doing some really crazy things in my life, I don't mind sharing so you can all laugh along with me. (lol)
I only thought this happened on television or in the
movies, but uh..nope! The other day, I had to get some gas because I've been traveling way more than normal for various appointments. I stopped to a Murphy's gas station because it was the least expensive in the area. I pumped the gas while talking on the phone then got back into the car. Then I started daydreaming. If you guessed that I drove off with the pump thingy still in the tank, you go to the head of the class with an A+. Hearing this loud noise, and hysterical laughter from my fellow pumpees told me I had clearly lost my mind for a moment, before humbly going back to take care of my faux pas. Was I embarrassed? Heck yeah! But why not turn these embarrassments into a story, right? Blogosphere, can you please tell me that I'm not the only one who has momentarily lost it in the gas station? What the heck? (lol)
Being a cookbook collector, I managed to come across another really good one, called Taste of Home - 5 Ingredient Cookbook. I totally love it! Not only are these recipes simple to make, but they're creative and tasty. Here's a really good one you can use as an appetizer or sweet treat, and it only takes about 10-15 minutes!
AMARETTO-PEACH CHEESE SPREAD
2 Pkgs - Softened Cream Cheese
1 Jar Peach Preserves
1 Cup Finely Chopped Pecans
2 Tablespoons Amaretto
Gingersnap Cookies or Sugar Cookies
All you do is place the cream cheese on serving plate. In a small bowl, mix your preserves, pecans and Amaretto, then pour all that yumminess over the cream cheese. Serve with the cookies and that's it. What the heck, why not use on a bagel, too? (lol)
I'm waaay behind in blogging and responding, but I promise to get back on my game one day soon. I sure miss seeing what everyone has been talking about in the world of blogging. One thing I managed to do that I'm super excited about was finishing up an interview with Postcards from The Great Food Truck Race on the TV Food Network with my boyfriend Tyler. I'll take those pats on the back right about now, please. I'm also thrilled that they are doing a Kids' Chopped in the next 2 weeks! I love to see kids show off their culinary skills in the kitchen.
Did you know that there are tons of hidden bunkers throughout Washington D.C. just in case the president has to make a quick getaway? Some are located in old buildings, or hotel basements.
