Life is Good

Yes, life is good. And so is BBQ! Which is why I am trying to win this fabulous giveaway!

Have I told you I am trying to get more and more into food? It's taking time, as I have a million other things to do as well, but I'm trying new recipes, checking labels, trying for fresher foods, reading food blog after food blog for ideas and inspiration, and I am on a mission to eliminate HFCS from my house by the end of the year. For somethings, that's not a big deal, I just find items that don't have it and voila! But in some cases...I'm going to have to get creative. Namely with my Miracle Whip.

Ladies and gentleman, I have been a loyal Miracle Whip user since I was a child. I vividly remember being 4 and telling my dad he messed up my sandwich. This confused my dad as he couldn't understand how anyone could mess up a bologna and mayo sandwich. And that was when my mom discovered the problem. I didn't do mayo when I was a child and I could IMMEADIATELY tell the difference. Thus, an illustration that my love affair with Miracle Whip started early and has never faltered. Until now. It contains HFCS. It will have to be eliminated. But what to do? While I don't spit out mayo like I did over 20 years ago, I still prefer that tangy taste. So - I will make my own Miracle Whip. I've been looking for recipes and I believe I've found one I am going to try.

Eventually, I really will get pictures up of the house and what we've done to it so far. Really. I promise. No. I'm serious this time.
