I’ve been hoarding this recipe since Thanksgiving. I promise my intentions are good though. Since I’ve been hit or miss the past couple months on the blog, I thought I’d fill you in a little bit with what has been going on in my life….
- My first cookbook was published, Flat Belly Cookbook for Dummies!
- Eric and I did a the OUC half marathon. It was a super HOT race, but a great experience running a half in our hometown.
- It’s been a rough time at our church as our former paster died last week.. and through this I’ve been reminded that God doesn’t always answer prayer. That His time table is different from ours. Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and neither are you’re ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
- We finished decorating our tree… tonight. Yeah, better late than never.
- I did my first “real” TV segment with food prep!
- We babysat our nephew and realized how tough it is to care for a child… guess Eric isn’t getting a cat for Christmas…poor guy.
- I’m working with the Orlando Magic, a lot and I just love those guys!
- Auburn is going to the National Championship game! Okay, okay.. you maybe already knew that but I just thought it might be worth reminiscing?
