Day 23/30

Day Twenty three - Something you crave for a lot.


My number one thing that I crave is to lie down.  Not even to necessarily sleep but to lay down.  I love to lie down and read or lie down and watch TV or lie down and watch the world go by.  It's the thing I crave the most.  But I also worry that I'm lying down too much.  So it's a catch 22.
 
The number one food that I crave is a toss up between french fries and ice cream.  Those are the things that I get cravings for.  I'll eat just about any version of them.  I'm not picky, though I do adore Red Robin's steak fries, NUM!  And I get a hankering for Pumpkin Pie, Winter White Chocolate, and Baseball Nut from Baskin Robbins from time to time. 
 
The number one movie that I crave is You've Got Mail.  I can sit lie down and watch that movie back to back for an entire day.  I know because I did it one time when it was on one of those Turner networks that does crazy stuff like that.
 
The number one place that I crave is Edisto Beach in South Carolina.  I spent time camping there as a kid and I still crave those carefree sunburned days.
 
The number one person I crave is Joel.  I am sad to see him go and glad to hear him return each day he has to go to work.  I'm thankful that he goes to work and provides for us, but I miss him the entire time he's gone and anticipate his return.
 
The number one car that I crave is a Mini Cooper.  I want one, bad.  I want it customized, too. They have it in diesel across the border, but I'd take the gas version or any version if I could just have one!
 
The number one restaurant that I crave is Duke's BBQ in Ridgeville, SC.  All you can eat or carry out only open two days a week and food that is delicious and reminds me of home.
 
The number one craving that I have in my life is more Jesus.  I love God and it never quite feels like I have enough.  I love to read the Bible, serve Him, and pray, but every day I wake up with the craving to do it all over again and to do it better with more love this time. 
 
What do you crave?

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Project 52 Crossword Puzzle

Hannah and I had the car on Thursday and since it was officially my turn to plan date night, she and I hit the store.  We went to Target which has those great dollar bins right when you enter the store.  I found a cross word puzzle and some water balloons.  My thoughts were to make some chocolate bowls with the water balloons and do a crossword while we waited for them to harden.  Well, I got the idea of orange truffles while I was sitting around that afternoon and went to see if we had any of the stuff that would make it and I kind of had it.  So, I made up some truffles and then we covered them with chocolate that night and they were so tasty.  We made it through one crossword puzzle and cheated very little :-D  It was fun working on it together and some of the clues and words were a little ludicrous.  All in all not a bad date for a buck and some pantry raiding. In case you are interested in the dessert, I took the McCormick Eggnog Truffle recipe and modified it by omitting the n

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
