Bread con queso! and some facts.


So, Superbowl Sunday has passed and the Mr. has had a birthday since I've last posted. (Lots of food, but we're trying to stay in shape by running a little more than usual!) I made the bread pictured below, and have also found out that (my favorite photo editing site) will be closing in a few months, which is sad. However, the "premium" features are now available to everyone, so I edited the same picture a few different ways to mess around and see what I liked.

 Here is a recipe for the Cheesy Jalopeno Pull Bread recipe - it's very easy, and very yummy.
And remember if you make this: the more places you cut the bread loaf, the more places there are to stuff cheese!!

 11 Fun Facts About ME!
  1. Green has always been and always will be my favorite color. 
  2. I like rollerblading, but hate finding sidewalks/streets that aren't covered in gravel.
  3. Horror movies are SO not for me.
  4. Some of my favorite TV shows right now are 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, and It's Always Sunny.
  5. I like pea coats and wouldn't mind having one in every color. So far I have green, yellow, and black.
  6. I know how to play the cello and piano and would like to play more often than I do now.
  7. (I asked the Mr. for one fact) He said I am "straightforward".
  8. Crafts are fun in my downtime: cross stitching, sewing, crocheting, jewelry, making cards.
  9. Cooking is generally fun and relaxing for me. My baking skills are improving, but cooking still wins.
  10. Caterpillars are GROSS.
  11. I lose my cell phone quite often, especially when it's on silent.

Questions from em to answer:
1. What is your favorite vacation destination and why? Of places I have visited: Hawaii. Per degree of weather, it is the warmest place I have ever been with the least amount of bugs. That's a winning ratio in my book. :)
2. What is your favorite color? Green!
3. Cats or Dogs? Dogs, definitely.
4. What is the one consumable item you cannot live without and why? Vitamins? or water!
5. Do you know multiple languages? If so what are they? Just English. I have dabbled in Spanish and German, but nothing fluent.
6. What is your favorite hobby? Cooking
7. Who is your favorite singer/band? I really have a hard time picking favorites...
8. Who is your favorite author? Um... Clive Barker? or Stephen King? I like a variety of authors.
9. If you could have one do-over in your life, what would you do-over? I've previously thought I'd re-pick my college major, but I actually like the experiences I've had along the way because of it, so I don't think I'd do that over. 
10. Do you like to bake or cook, or both? Seriously, I did not read these questions before I listed my 11 facts about myself. COOKING, yo.
11. What type of footwear do you have on right now? No footwear, just socks. My feet are covered- don't worry!
