On the 18th of each month our blog community participates in a short and simple ritual. Whether you stumbled on our site or you are here to vote in today's Super Bowl Snack activities, jump right in. You're in Rome and you know what they say...
Do as the Roman's do.
It's easy. Thinking back over the past month, tell us your "high" (best thing that happened to you), "low" (worst thing that happened to you), and your "aha" (something you learned - fun fact, something about self, etc...). Post yours in today's comment section and your name is automatically entered in a drawing for the Ray Wattson shirt of your choice.
Visit our GalleRay to view your many choices of a one-of-a-kind Ray t-shirt.
I'll get us warmed up...
High: Meeting Peggy and Robin at Taste of USA, while catching up with old friends; a successful Struble Suds Dine By Design, raising $300+); an adult-only trip to Montreal with my husband; finally launching our Shine t-shirt campaign (1,000,000 shirts by 2013); and sunny days.
Low: Rainy days; not selling more Shine shirts at Taste of USA; a two-year who resists going to bed; red tape; and missing my parents.
Aha: Lively chatter, using fancy language is one way to increase your child's verbal skills, according to an article in the New York Times; there is SO much to know about cyberspace (I don't even know what I don't know); Leonardo Davinci had notebooks of filled with his ideas and he wrote backwards to avoid smearing his print.
A couple of clicks before heading into the comment section and you will be on your way.
Last week kicked off Highlowaha's Second Annual Super Bowl Throw Down. Sausage was the secret ingredient Lauren and Kate were challenged to use. You, the readers (50%); our celebrity judge (25%); and bar flies from Struble Suds, in Naperville, IL (25%), all voted. And, the winner from last week is...
Lauren AND Kate
A perfect tie
This week, the secret ingredient with which these women worked was mushroom. Check out their recipes at Goodies by Kate and Lauren's Kitchen, then place your vote in the first poll in the right hand side bar.
Finally, help us determine week four's secret ingredient by casting your vote in the second poll in the right hand side bar... Avocado or potato?
No shortage of something to say today, that's for sure:
- High, low, aha
- This week's winning recipe,
- and week four's secret ingredient
Signing off until tomorrow (when you get a fun, fun recap of last week's Taste of USA)...
