Did you know that out of all the linkys, I have been most loyal to
Tried it Tuesday?
Do you think it's because I have some major love for Holly at
I think so!
Tried it Awesomeness #1: Updated Blog Design
So...what do you think about the new blog design?
I am in LOVE!
Erika at Honey Bunch Blog Design is a SAINT...I'm serious!
She is SO patient and truly takes her time creatin'
EXACTLY what you want.
I truly don't know how she does it, but I couldn't be
more ecstatic with what she has created.
I really wanted to try somethin' new and brighter for my space.
She completely captured my personality while
still keeping some of my elements from my original
blog design, which I love.
If you are considerin' tryin' an update, head over to
Erika and tell her Alison sent you!
You will love her!
Tried it Awesomeness #2: Hog's Breath Inn-Carmel, California
This wasn't a new experience for me.
In fact...I've eaten at Hog's Breath a TON!
The atmosphere cannot be beat.
It's quaint and invitin'.
You feel like you are in a little hidden world and want to stay
there forever...enjoyin' the surroundin's, the drinks, the food...
the whole shebang!
It is owned by our dear friends, Kaiser and Claudia.
They also own many restaurants that
you should check out if you are in CA.
Here's what I had....Dirty Harry
(yes...after Clint Eastwood)
cut of prime sirloin, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus,
mushrooms, whole grain mustard sauce
It was sooooooo DEE-LICIOUS!
I'm so glad I tried this!
Y'all...I would've licked the plate if I wasn't
with all these snazzy people!
My parents seriously have the best friends in the world.
They are so fun to be with!
Aren't they cute?
I also picked up another Hog's Breath Inn long-sleeved t-shirt.
It's a tradition for me.
Tried it Awesomeness #3: Homemade Hummus
Who is absolutely crackin' up at all this time
I have been spendin' in the kitchen?
Maybe it's because my mama has every appliance,
spice, ingredient, etc. known to mankind in her pantry?
Maybe it's because she has enough counter space for
me to spread out?
Maybe it's because it's summer and I'm tryin' to expand
Who knows, but eventually it will stop...right?
Please say, "Yes!"
I have made hummus before with the help of Jerm...okay...
quit yellin' at your computer...I'll tell the truth...
Jerm actually made it and I watched.
I thought I would be brave and try it on my own because I was cravin' it.
How hard could it be right?
I can open cans and dump in beans and garlic.
I can sprinkle spices and drizzle olive oil, but
I cannot...I repeat...CANNOT work a
food processor without gettin' stuff EVERYWHERE.
There was probably more hummus on me than in the bowl.
You know what though?
I don't care.
It was GOOD!
I'm just gonna go ahead and link up again with Christy from
Eating, Drinking, Linking...Oh My! because well...
this post was dedicated to food again and I know Christy
will be proud I made food because she is awesome like that!
