Blog Worthy

Around this time last year I figured out that the more I posed on the blog, the more page views I would get. I let myself get temporarily drunk off the notion of page views and as a result, started posting every day. Let me just say there is nothing wrong with posting everyday or even every meal. People are able to do it and do it well. Daily posts, however, are not my strong suit. I felt like I was posting food that wasn’t particularly special and that I was running out of interesting things to say about it. I set a policy in my own mind to only blog if I had something truly blog worthy and, my friends, that is what I have for you today. Now I think before I snap. I ask myself, “is this blog worthy?”

This is truly blog worthy.

Behold: The Peanut Butter and Jelly Sundae from Sweet Rose Creamery.

I told you it would be blog worthy!

Danielle and I have gotten into the habit of going to Sweet Rose Creamery weekly on Sunday’s. Why? Why not! A couple of Sundays ago we decided to be more adventurous than usual and order a sundae that incorporated two of the flavored we had sampled (obvi we’re all about the liberal use of samples): peanut butter and Concord grape. The grape flavor tasted exactly like jam and the peanut butter flavor was super rich and creamy. To top the sundae off there was roasted peanuts in some kind of a caramel sauce, whipped cream and pieces of a waffle cone.

It hit the spot!

Today is my 10 hour day (I’m in the midst of one of my breaks) and I had to take a moment to drool over this ice cream. Time to wipe the keyboard clean and head to class.

On another note: Tomorrow I am running 20 miles! I have been staring the day down on the calendar since I plotted out my marathon training last May. Based on the fact that I ran 18 miles last week, I know I have 20 in me. I’m excited both to accomplish the 20 mile run and to start to close out my marathon training. Only 3 1/2 weeks to go!

  1. That ice cream is absolutely blog worthy!

    I’m with you on the daily posts – it’s a great idea in theory but WAY too time consuming. And I don’t do something blog-worthy everyday, that’s for sure!
