Food Challenge: Going Vegetarian
I thought that I would be saving money by not buying meat at the grocery store anymore, but I was so wrong. There are so many fancy ingredients you can buy that I wouldn't necessarily think to if I was still eating meat. Like, did you know that shittake mushrooms are $9.98 a pound??? And the meal I made with them wasn't even that good. :(
Completed: Day 80 of 90. (That is, assuming I only keep it up for the three months required by my Life List.)
Reading Challenge: Read Through the Bible in a Year
I read through Daniel this month, which was pretty good — dudes getting thrown into furnaces and lion's dens, but not dying, because God is awesome. Also working on Hosea, which isn't one of those books that's read all that often, but it's interesting because it's almost like a pre-cursor for the gospels.

Food Challenge: Sample Every Flavor of Bluebell Ice Cream
You guys, I think Fudge Divinity might have ousted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as my favorite flavor of ice cream. I couldn't stop eating this stuff, and there was a lot of it, because Matt didn't like it. BECAUSE HE KEPT POURING CHOCOLATE SYRUP ALL OVER IT. It was fluffy and marshmallow-y and amazing on its own, but not overly sweet, and syrup ruins it.
We also tried Mango ice cream. It wasn't good. A friend tried it and liked it, so we told him to take it home with him. That was weird, we never don't finish ice cream.
When Matt and I were perusing the flavors the other day, he asked what I would do if, when he graduated, we end up moving to a state that doesn't sell Bluebell. I was HORRIFIED. If I find out we're moving somewhere without Bluebell, I'll just have to make sure we try them all before we leave. Ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Completed: 54 out of 70 flavors
You think I'm kidding about ice cream for every meal? This is what I ate when Matt was at a conference for four days last week.
I went shopping with my family and all I got was a stun gun. I decorated my very own office. Other than that, my days were filled with boring things like laundry and watching bad TV. Next month will be more exciting, I promise.
Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?
