sore bones and broken pride

This is a blog. I guess. If you’re reading this, you probably know me. And you know that I have a billion few passions. Cooking, baking, art, travel, kisses, and of course the Goat who is always willing to try anything for me (at least once). Basically, I love adventure and I love telling stories about those adventures. If you want, you can join in my life by reading about it, and of course providing your own commentary by commenting.

Adventure #1: Snowboarding

Snow is a treat. As a person who loves treats, I love snow. I’ve had prairie my whole life, and somehow the snow on the prairie is no better than a little house on the prairie (but I’ll always love you, Manly). But snow on the mountain? Why yes, I’ll have some of that.

I guess it’s no surprise then that I chose to join my wonderful in-laws for yesterday’s day of snowboarding lessons. As you might have gathered from the title of this post, it went exactly as I’d feared. I didn’t like landing on my caboose, so I suppose I self-consciously decided to opt for my head instead. This resulted in a plurality of falls and an equal amount of stomping up and down nightmare-ish breathtaking mountains.  However, one very perfect beef wellington pastry and a few hours sleep later, almost all is well. This squirrel is no mountain squirrel. Still, in about 2 hours I’ll be buried in back on the slopes giving it another go.

To regain a bit of confidence, I made a very simple treat for my in-laws last night. Seriously, I’ve never met a person who doesn’t like this. As a amateur baker, it’s so easy that you almost hate making it, but when you need a quick sweet for cheap, I always go for Momma C’s (Addictive) Almond Munchies. And that wonderful recipe will be the next post.
