I'm an Artist!! {Chive and Onion Biscuits}

Happy May Day!

There's this girl.  Her name is Amanda.  I congratulated her the other day for starting this thing called the "100 Mile Challenge".  She's going to walk/run 100 miles in the month of May.  After I congratulated her, I received an e-mail from her telling me I should do it, too...

Not realizing that 100 miles = a 5k every day, I said yes.  And then I drug one of my friends into doing it with me so it wouldn't seem so daunting.

Today is the first day of the 100 mile challenge.  Over 50 bloggers have signed up! 

In other news.... Check out this cool trick I learned today.  

Want to know how to do it?

Paper Plate Art

Things you'll need:

Food Coloring
Dish soap


Cover the bottom of the plate with a thin layer of milk.
Drop a few drops of each color of  food coloring into the center, spread out a little bit. 
Drop one drop of dish soap into the middle.
Voila, you're an artist!  Congrats!

And, totally unrelated, but obviously necessary...
