10 (More) Things I Never Thought I’d Do

Back in 2016, I wrote a post titled 10 Things I Never Thought I’d Do. I randomly came across it and decided I needed to add 10 more things I never thought I’d do since it has been several years since I wrote that post.

In 2016, I was fresh out of college, newly married, and childless. A lot has changed, so here are ten more things I never thought I’d do!

Snack mix and biscuit recipe

Have I ever mentioned that my little sister is a picky eater? At this point in her life she eats a few basic foods: hot dogs, Ramen noodles, pizza, salad, fried chicken, candy, mashed potatoes, and peas.


I used to eat in a similar way when I was her age, so maybe by the time she’s my age she’ll be into salmon, corn bread, and massive amounts of peanut butter ;D.

My mom has a tough time packing snacks for Hannah’s lunch, so I collaborated with Hannah to come up with the ultimate “recipe” for a snack mix.

Hannah’s Crunchy Snack Mix
2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
2 cups Goldfish
2 cups pretzels
1 cup almonds
1 cup M&M’s

Combine all of the ingredients in a large plastic container and mix will. Enjoy!

I was recently flipping through my grandma’s old personal recipe book and found her recipe for baking powder biscuits. I made these back in January, and I’m finally sharing the recipe.


Grandma’s Baking Powder Biscuits
2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
pinch of salt
5 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons melted butter

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. In a bowl, mix the flower, baking powder, salt. Add the shortening, and mix with a fork or pastry cutter until the mix is crumbly. Add the milk, a little bit at a time and mix until it forms a ball.
3. Roll the dough on a floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into desired size and brush with butter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned and enjoy!

Are you or were you ever a picky eater? (I used to hate seafood. Now it’s my favorite!)
