Hi everyone! I can’t believe we’re already more than halfway through this challenge! I’ve decided that from now on, I’ll be doing these posts every other day, because it’s becoming really tough for me to do this every single day. So that means today I will be doing both day 15 and day 16.
First off, I’ll be sharing with you all what ten of my favorite foods are. So, let’s get started!!
Day 15-My Favorite Foods
1. Chicken Tenders (or any kind of chicken)
Most of the time when my family goes out to eat, I usually order chicken tenders\fingers. They’re just so good! The delicious breading on top, the yummy meat inside…and some honey mustard and ketchup to dip the things in! And, of course, you can’t forget the french fries! Yum!
I also really like fried chicken (delicious!!!), and anything chicken-related, really. My mom makes the best barbecued chicken. 😉
2. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
I make grilled cheese for myself all the time. It’s actually pretty easy to make… and I add my own little twist to it…;) Plus it tastes delicious!
My family has seafood for dinner a lot, mainly either shrimp, tilapia, or flounder. It’s all so tasty!
4. Hot Dogs
This past week, we had hot dogs for dinner several times, and I never got tired of eating them! They are so many ways to enjoy them: with mustard, with ketchup, with relish, with cheese, or just plain. 🙂 With that many options to choose from, how can you get tired of them?? And with our hot dogs, my family sometimes has some tasty macaroni salad, which brings me to number 5….
5. Macaroni Salad
Macaroni salad is basically just macaroni noodles, cut-up peppers, and things like that mixed in mayonnaise. It’s a great dish to have on hand at a summer barbeque, because it goes great with hamburgers, hot dogs, or really anything!
Seriously, who doesn’t love brownies? They’re so delicious and chocolatey and fudgy and just all around good! And they go great with ice cream!
7. Ice Cream
Ice cream isn’t just great with a brownie or on top of apple pie- it’s wonderful on its own, too! I love all kinds of ice cream- chocolate, vanilla, mint chocolate chip, and especially fudge brownie! You just can’t go wrong with ice cream!
8. French Fries
When my family goes out to McDonalds or another restaurant, I always love having french fries with my meal. It’s always so much fun to dip them in ketchup or mustard….and then gobble them up! 😀
I always know we’re going to have a good meal when my family has spaghetti for dinner. I love pouring the sauce over the noodles, sprinkling cheese on top, and then mixing everything together. And you sure can’t forget the meatballs and garlic bread! 😉
10. Chocolate chip cookies
Chocolate chip cookies are by far my favorite kind of cookie. In my opinion, the more chocolate chips on the cookie, the better! These go great with a big glass of milk, too. 🙂
Alright, well, those are 10 of my favorite foods! Now let’s move on to day 16-when I get to talk about the best thing that happened to me this year. 🙂
Day 16-Best Thing to Happen This Year
This is a pretty easy one for me, actually. The best thing to happen this year was definitely when I started my blog-on March 13th, 2015. If I had never done that, I probably would never have met all of you amazing people. You all make me feel so good about myself, and it’s so much fun to talk back and forth with you through the comments. 🙂 I really don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have all of you as internet friends. ☺
Okay, well, I guess that just about covers it for now! But before I go, here are some pictures of my brand new tablet that came on Friday.
Please note that in order for me to get this tablet right away, I agreed to give up my allowance for a couple of months, until I’m able to pay the price of this tablet off. My parents are very generous and nice to make that deal with me. So I just want to say, before we get started with this little introduction, thank you so much, Mom and Dad! I really appreciate this. 🙂
First of all, this is the box that the tablet came in. 😉
The awesome cover! I love the fact that it’s lime green. For some reason, my tablet didn’t come with a case, so we had to order this separately. But we got a great deal on this case, so I’m very happy that I was able to get it. 🙂
Here’s what my tablet looks like when you open up the case. Isn’t it so adorable-looking? It’s a 7-inch tablet, so it’s on the small side, but I love it. I think it’s the perfect size!
Here’s a comparison picture with my old tablet and my new one. My old one (which was a 10-inch RCA) looks like a giant compared to my new tablet. Plus it had a keyboard and was sooo much heavier than my Acer. I definitely do not miss the bulkiness of my old tablet, and I surprisingly don’t miss the keyboard as much as I thought I would. The on-screen keyboard I use now is pretty nice. I sometimes even use voice text, which means you just talk at the screen and your words show up on there without you having to type anything! I’ve used it a little in my recent posts, and it sometimes gets words wrong, which is why you may have noticed some silly mistakes on here. 😉
But anyway, yes, I am absolutely thrilled with my new tablet! I think it’s worth giving up my allowance for a couple months, don’t you? Besides blogging, I also use this tablet just for fun stuff, and also for my schoolwork. So, yes, I’ll really be getting my money’s worth out of this. I really hope it lasts a long time!
OK, that’s it for today. Have a great rest of your Sunday and stay cool–it’s hot out there! 🙂
