It's Friday, and that means it's time to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit!
Overall, it's been a pretty good week. On Monday, the always-awesome Alex J. Cavanaugh announced that I won the grand prize in his Epic 2000 Followers Giveaway! That means I get an autographed copy of each of his books, a $10 iTunes gftcard, and a free t-shirt from Jeremy Hawkins' Neat-O Shop (I chose a Ninja Army shirt). A copy of each of Alex's books is also being donated to the library of my choosing. Overall, I'd say that's an amazing prize!
I also had a successful cooking experience this week. I've always loved apple fritters. They go great with coffee, and I just generally love anything with apple in it. I found a recipe for apple fritters on Wednesday, and as it turns out, I had all the ingredients necessary to make them, so I decided to give it a try. I can honestly say they turned out way better than expected. Here's a picture.
They tasted great! The kids loved them. I loved them. My husband loved them. I definitely plan to make them again. For anyone interested, here's the recipe I used. The only difference is that I added a little vanilla extract and cinnamon to the batter.
What would you like to celebrate?
