11 in 11 linky

Pin It Happy New Year everyone!!  Start it off right by saying goodbye to 2011.Miss Kindergarten
11. Favorite movie I watched
Footloose  I know, I know…but I grew up in the 80’s and loved the original.  In fact, the original Footloose was filmed in the town where I live.  I thought the casting of Ariel was much better in the remake.  I am a huge fan of Julianne Hough!

10. Favorite TV series
I love, love, love The Big Bang Theory.  It may have something to do with the fact I am married to Leonard and gave birth to several Sheldons.    I am also pretty fond of Survivor and Dancing with the Stars.

9. Favorite Restaurant

All I can say is Y-U-M-M-Y!!  The menu comprises traditional recipes and techniques inspired from the Rio Grande Valley regions of Northern Mexico, Texas and New Mexico, and all food is made fresh daily from scratch.  They have the most amazing salads served with a creamy tomatillo dressing.  I swear I would/could eat dirt if this dressing was on top.

8. Favorite New Thing I Tried
Baking.  I have always loved to cook, but I was intimidated by baking.  Turns out I have “developed a relationship with dough”.  This summer I learned to make bread and last week I attempted cinnamon rolls.  I tried them out on my toughest critics (my kids) and they were a hit.  Here are a couple of my favorite blogs/websites for cooking/baking.

7. Favorite Gift I Received
My oldest son gave me a framed print of this picture. He just turned 19 and  is leaving for Mexico in less than a month to serve a mission for our church.  He will be gone for two years.  The picture reminds me that even though I won’t be able to hold him close, he will be taken care of and watched over while he is away.
