Rootbeer Taste Test #2


So for Christmas my little brother bought my dad some different sodas. One was a root beer made with pure sugar cane Boylan. So we decided to have another Root Beer taste test. The root beers we had were Boylan, Mug, Henry Weinhard, Stewart's, and Rat Bastard. My mom poured all the root beers into tiny Dixie cups and we labeled them A-E. It was fun doing a blind taste test. Not only did we have to rate them 1-5, five being our favorite we also had to try and put the label to the soda. The results are as follows:
Boylan with 12 Points
Rat Bastard with 14 Points
Mug with 20 Points
Stewart's with 21 Points
and the winner..

Henry Weinhard with 24 Points.

As we were drinking them many said I hope I don't pick Mug as my favorite 2 out of 5 did. 2 out of 5 also picked Stewart's, and only one picked Rat Bastard. Henry Weinhard ranked high in every ones but was no ones absolute favorite. It was a fun little adventure. The last root beer taste we had can be found here:

I went to my cousin's apartment and made cookies at her house with Megan. We also had birthday cake for Heidi's birthday it was a ton of fun! I miss them. Well seeing as we'll all see each other when school starts again I will just miss them till the second week of January!

Treats I've recently made

I made a cheese ball. Super easy and very good. It is just cream cheese, dry ranch mix, green onions, and you can put nuts on the outside or cheese. I put cheese some people i work with don't love nuts.

I made red pepper humus. Oh boy it was super easy and i enjoyed eating it. All it has is chickpeas, bottled roasted red peppers, and some lemon juice. Delicious!

These are Costa Rican cookies. They are good because they aren't super sweet. They had a bit of a different flavor but it was a good different.

Logan Temple

One Beautiful day before the snow came to stay I went to the Logan Temple to take some pictures. Its nice to be alone and just look at pretty stuff. Logan is beautiful when the snow comes its also nice but a little less enjoyable for me. Oh well what are you going to do...

Sorry my life is boring...

So when I first moved up to Logan I kept thinking to myself wow I can do this. I was missing out on all the 100 degree weather and wearing jackets at night. I loved the 80-90 degree summer weather. I could do everything I wanted and still not be dying of heat. Oh the heat I did not miss that... until now. This is the Logan I moved to.

This is the Logan I live in now and soonish. Last night I went to bed and outside it was a cool 1 degree outside. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! 1 degree!! It hasn't gotten above 30 in the last few days and a few in the future. We are expecting snow now and it will never go away. Never!!! Oh man what have I gotten myself into? I miss the heat! Oh how I miss the heat!! I am unable to really warm myself so I must turn to outside factors for help. Coats, hot cider/chocolate, soup, things I never really enjoyed but have now become my best friend. This is the Logan of my present and future. Oh please let me survive.
