My first blogger award!!!! Oh, and a picture of Chicken Meatloaf Muffins.

(Heart pounding. Hands shaking. Waiting for the applause to die down. Deep breath. Here we go...) Thank you. Thank you very much. First of all, I would like to thank the Voting Committee, headed by Linda of Diva Weigh. It is a wonderful feeling to be recognized for years of hard work and sacrifice. Well, it's actually only been for a couple of months of easy blogging, but hey, who's counting? Next I'd like to thank my Mother, who passed her genes to me, giving me my amazing good looks. And, to my loving husband who has put up with me stood by me all these years. I am thrilled beyond all my wildest dreams and graciously accept this prestigious award.

In accepting this award I agree to accept the mantle of responsibility that comes with it. I promise to set a good example, live cleanly and...wait a minute! What kind of award did I win!?!?!? Maaaaan! I thought
this was serious! Oh well, it is an award, and funny, and I am tickled that I was chosen to receive it.

I really do want to thank Linda of Diva Weigh for choosing me from all the bloggers she knows to receive this award. Linda has a great blog. She is funny, can cook, exercises a lot more regularly than I do, and takes great pictures of the wonderful recipes she cooks. Please drop by her blog and take a look around.

There are some stings attached to this award. Eight of them actually...
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.

3. Link to the person who nominated you.

4. Tell us up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.

5. Allow your readers to guess which one or more are true.

6. Nominate seven "Creative Writers" who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.

7. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.

8. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

So, let's see, I have done #1, #2, and #3. Now for the good part. 6 outrageous lies and one outrageous truth. Hmmmm.... My Mom raised me not to lie, but I guess this one time it will be alright. Just don't tell my Mom, 'kay?
1. I race ostriches in my spare time. They are really fast in case you didn't know.
2. I have spare time. Tons of it. I sit around eating bonbons and watching soap operas all day. "Days" is my favorite one.
3. I won a Grammy for singing in my shower. George Michael wrote the song, but we kept that part quiet.
This is tough! I would  never have believed it was so hard to think of a few outrageous lies! :D
4. Angelina (of Bradgelina) calls me for advice about her relationship with Brad. Daily.
5. At night, when there is a full moon, I change into a super hero who flies around decorating cakes by blinking my eyes. Really.
6. I once spent a month in a think tank, under water, under the North Pole, in my underwear. (I'm sure that's an image you didn't need! Shudder... think tanks!)
7. I once jumped out of a perfectly good airplane with a perfect stranger strapped to my back, while my daughter watched.

Wow! That was tough! I feel like I was just put through the wringer! Think Dustin Hoffman in Marathon Man. Is it safe? Now, for the really tough part. Naming 7 "Creative Writers". Let's see.......

1. Michelle of Flourchild
2. Clivia of Bubie's Little Baker
3. Julia of Little Bit of Everything
4. Leslie of Lethally Delicious
5. Mimi of Mimi's Kitchen
6. Romaine of Salad in a Jar
7. Moogie of Moogie & Pap

That was hard too. I love reading so many of your blogs and so many of you are funny and creative and more than deserve this award, but those are the first seven that came to mind. Now, my adoring fans, I must leave you for some much needed rest and relaxation. Oh, but before I go, several days ago, maybe last week, I made some Chicken Meatloaf Muffins. At the time, I didn't take a picture. I made the same dish tonight, and did take pictures. Of course, I think the ones I didn't take pictures of were prettier than these, but, it will give you the gist of how they are supposed to look. Enjoy. :)


  1. LOL. I thought my blog was coming across as modest and thoughtful. Guess my true colours showed through.
    Thanks, you skydiving fool, you!

  2. How sweet of you..You made my day!
    I love your lies! So Im thinking #3 is not a lie!!
    Thank you sweet friend for the award!

  3. Thanks for playing along!
    Too funny!
    I knew you were busy but geez! With all the ostrich training, bon-bon eating, underwater nude stuff, keeping Brangelina under control, it's a wonder you even have time to fly around and decorate cakes at night!
    So that one must be a lie!


  4. Congratulation on your award! Thank you for sharing with me. Skydiving would be a lie for me, but for you not so.

  5. Your answers are hilarious. Also, thanks for passing it on to me. I still have to do the one that Mags from the other side of fifty gave to me. I'm very slow!

  6. Susan: Thanks for the award!! I was so excited this morning when I saw this!! It's hard to come up with good outrageous lies, yours are the best.

    Skydiving is the true one??? I've always wanted to do that.

    Thanks again.

  7. Congrats on your first award - and nice to know a bit more about you.

  8. So glad to see a picture of your chicken meatloaf. Looks delicious! Thanks for making it again.

    Also, thanks for thinking of my blog on your award list. Let's see...I've finished number 1. :-)

  9. Susan, when it rains it pours so here is your second award and challenge. Drop by tomorrow when I will have it up with my Cajun recipe. I think everyone will enjoy this one and you don't have to lie for it. lol

    See ya, tomorrow.

  10. No potato throwing but yes I ran ONE marathon and that about did me in! Thanks again for the cool award, you rock!

  11. Congrats on your award! Thanks for choosing me to share it with! You know I love your blog (and your photos!)
