Adventures in the Kitchen: Hodgepodge and Graduation Caps

Hi there, friends!
How does Joyce think of such a great hodgepodge of questions every week?!? 
I love answering them...have you ever played along??

1. It's National Bike you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike? 
I do have a bike, and I love riding it! This past Saturday I rode to my girlfriend's house one town over. 

2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?
I learned how to get along with people that I don't necessarily like. 

3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? What's a food you've tried and will never try again?
I can't really think of a food I've never tired that I WANT to try...maybe some kind of tropical fruit that is not available in the States. I would be perfectly happy never trying any kind of sea food ever again. (I am not a fan of any type of fish or seafood). 

4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Why? Do you think that's a good trend?
No, I don't think I have. I really trying to enjoy life the way it is, where I am. And not stressing over little things left undone. 

5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain?
Oh, gosh! There are just so many people I love to hate!!! 
Any other Bones' fans out there?!? Christopher Pelant (real name Andrew Leeds) is one villain that I love to hate. He is horrible. Smug. Tricky. Slippery. And just wont go away! 
(Just seeing this picture make me a little bit angry!! He is such a bad guy!) 

6. How concerned are you about identity theft? 
Honestly, not as concerned as I think I should be!! 

7. I saw this last question on Dawn's blog a couple of week's ago and asked if I could share. Everybody hop over and say hi, but first answer this...would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place or an extraordinary home in an ordinary place? 
I TOTALLY answered on Dawn's blog last week...hands down, ordinary home in an extraordinary place. Like a small cabin on top of a mountain...

8. Insert your own random thought here.
About this time of year, I start wanting to make these little guys...

Graduation Cap Treats Adventures of D and V
These little treats may look complicated, but are SOOO easy to make. No cooking involved (just a little microwave melting action).They are perfect to bring to one or all of the graduation parties you are invited to this spring!
Here is how you make them...

  1. LOVE those grad hat treats!! And as for Bones, I used to watch this faithfully long ago and then got bored with it. LOL

  2. I'd take a cabin in the mountains ANYDAY!!!

    Look at you - riding from town to town on your bike. Show off! ;) haha

    Those hats are really cute! Looks easy too!

  3. What cute little treats! My daughter is getting her Master's Degree in August...maybe I'll make some for the family get together! I"m going to add it to my Pinterest board.

  4. Those grad hats are so cute! I've got to remember those. All your answers make you sound like a really laid back person, which is good. :-) Have a fabulous day!

  5. Ooh, love the cabin on top of a mountain! And those treats are adorable - and I'm all for cute and easy! :-)

  6. Love your chocolate treats although I have no one graduating this year.

  7. The graduation caps are adorable. That cabin on top of a mountain sounds extraordinary!

  8. Cute graduation caps. I will join you on the mountain top in the cabin. That was a great lesson you learned in school.

  9. Graduation chocolate treats! I love it - what a fantastic idea!!

    My only issue with a cabin on the mountain would be the climb up with your food shopping! :)

  10. I love your little graduation treats! Cute idea.
