So today I took a stab at making a trifle. This is the first time I ever made, or tasted, a trifle. I’m pretty impressed that something so simplistic can be so delicious. It also helps that it looks pretty and makes people think that you spent HOURS preparing it, just for them. Someday it would be nice to own one of those huge trifle bowls, but a glass storing bowl works just as good for now.
I love the fourth of July. All the Americana, fireworks and patriotism. I love how on that day I feel so lucky to live where I do. Not a lot of people know this, but I am very patriotic. I love my country dearly. Now, I don’t always agree with what we do or the people we vote into office, but I still love her none the less. I love for what we stand for, for the principles we were formed from. There is a reason why the revolutionary war is my forte. To me nothing says “I love the United States of America!” than taking your favorite hobby and making it represent your nation. So, America, this trifle is for you!
Now on to matters that have NOTHING to do with the fourth of July, or trifles.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’m still here guys, I promise. Honestly, sometimes I get a bit discouraged seeing all these awesome food blogs with these professional looking photos. I just keep trying to remind myself the facts. A lot of these bloggers have been blogging for years, own very expensive cameras, and make a career out of blogging. I have a full time job and do not plan to make a career out of blogging. It would be nice though, and a girl can dream. I have decided to change my blog from a step-by-step blog to just discussing my recipes and other recipes that I try. I can’t commit the amount of time I would need to make a good step by step recipe blog. Maybe in another life, where I didn’t have to work 40 hours a week! I promise there will be a lot more posts in the future…like..tomorrow!
