I’m anxiously awaiting the clock to hit 5pm so I can dash out of the workplace and begin my weekend. There’s cooking to be done, beer to be consumed and cooler weather to enjoy. None of that can be done while sitting in the office, keying my life away.
OH, did I ever tell you guys that I have social anxiety? It’s a funny not so funny thing that I’ve dealt with since middle school. Maybe I’ve dealt with it longer but I really remember it kicking into high gear while I was in middle school. Teenage years, gotta love them. Social anxiety is so strange for me. I feel like a total social butterfly trapped inside of a total non-social butterfly body.
If you ask anyone I know or work with how they would describe me, they will tell you I never shut up and that I will talk to anyone. In a sense, I do. But typically, it’s after I’ve gotten to know people. I have to let that comfort zone set in. The internet is a total comfort zone for me and I talk, chat, socialize and network more than I ever would in person. Take BlogHer Food, for example. I went earlier this year. I told myself I would talk to EVERYONE. But I didn’t. I clammed up. I stuck to myself for a good duration of the event. I didn’t network to the level I should have networked. And I kind of regret it. So my goal for next year: Go to a blog conference and be that social butterfly that is trapped inside my non-social butterfly self. Yeah!
ON THE BLOG: I shared these Spicy Asian Chicken Meatballs and this Apple Pie Butterscotch Snickerdoodle Bread. For your healthy side, I shared this Roasted Tomatoes with Eggs and Quinoa breakfast recipe. Today I’m going to share Four Pudding Pie Recipes with you. All of these Pie recipes have been made by me. I’m pulling them from the archives to share with you in one convenient spot.
IN MY LIFE: I came to grips with the fact that I’m a total chocoholic. I want chocolate all of the time. White chocolate, dark chocolate and not so much milk chocolate. Milk chocolate is ok but I’m VERY picky about it. I was craving chocolate last night so I made a box of Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownies. Those things are dangerous and so is having boxes of them in my house. I bought a new camera and it was delivered yesterday. Canon 6D. Swoon. I’m selling my Rebel for a sweet deal to my pal Carrie from Frugal Foodie Mama. Cause that’s what friends are for. ♥︎
The weather is nice and the windows are open. We’re in for a nice weekend. I love fall in Florida and I’m glad it arrived a little earlier this year. I hope you have a good weekend, too. And enjoy the pie recipes!

Have a lovely weekend!
