What I Learned This Week…

Courtney has this cool weekly post on her blog called “What I learned…” and people can contribute a photo every week depicting what they learned.  It’s a great way to make the blog more interactive and it’s fun to see and read what everyone learned this week.

I love this idea so much that I might just steal it….with a food twist of course :).

So without further adieu, here’s a little story about what I learned this week.

Sometimes when I go into the bathroom, the toilet seat has water all over it.  I’m usually the only one home during the day—and I know I don’t leave water all over the seat—so I couldn’t figure out what was happening.  Until I walked in on this…

I learned that if I don’t put the toilet seat down after I use the bathroom, Harold will drop his mice in the toilet and then go fishing for them!

Unfortunately he isn’t very good at fishing and always drops the mice back in the toilet…hence the water all over the seat!

Question:  What did you learn this week?  Leave a comment below and share it on Courtney’s blog too!

Weekend Wrap-Up and a Little ‘House-Keeping’

First off, have you noticed I’ve done a little house-keeping on the blog?  I have to admit that I’m obsessed with working on the blog and I’m always looking for new ways to spruce it up.  I recently had coffee with a friend who taught me a lot about blogging—thanks Courtney!  She has an awesome blog about photography so go check it out here.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything she told me, but baby steps, right?

If you scroll down the page a bit you’ll see that I’ve added something called Social Vibe.  Social Vibe is a marketing program that raises money for charities.  I chose to support a charity called One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) because in addition to food, I’m also passionate about education—especially education for underprivileged and marginalized populations.

I’m about to finish my master’s degree in Global and International Education and sometime during my studies, I heard about One Laptop Per Child.  This non-profit mission is to “empower the world’s poorest children through education” (see more here)—they accomplish this goal by providing children in developing countries with low-cost and low-power laptops that are heavy duty and can withstand environments that are very hot/cold, dusty, sandy, etc.  Anyway I think it’s an AWESOME program and wanted to support it here on the blog.  By clicking on the link to the right, you can support OLPC for free by completing a few really easy activities.  It took me about two minutes to complete the activities.

Moving on, I wanted to provide you with a little weekend wrap-up in case you missed any of the awesome recipes that we posted this week.  I’ve also included a list of some of the recipes that I bookmarked this week from other blogs.  Enjoy!
