WIAW #25

Before jumping into What I Ate Wednesday, I wanted to give a big thank you to Lish of jumpeatrun for nominating me for a Beautiful Blogger Award! What a nice surprise! :D

Here are the rules:
1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and post it in your post.
2. Thank the person who nominated you & link back to their blog.
3. Tell all of us 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 7 other bloggers & comment on their page to let them know.
Seven things about MassachusEATS:
1. I love bacon and have since I was little and long before it was "cool." I even dressed up as bacon for Halloween last year!

2. I got my first cookbook when I was 5. Still have it, still occasionally use it. I have had a passion for cooking and baking ever since.
3. If its hot n spicy, I'll probably love it. 
4. I'm addicted to Crossfit! I recently deadlifted 205 pounds. :)

5. I'm a rock n roll kinda gal. Specifically 80s hair metal, despite being a 90s kid. I was about 10 when I saw a Def Leppard video on VH1. It was instantly love and I've never looked back.

6. I have 2 younger brothers. They, along with our close friend, are in a band called The Pity Whores. They've played on the Jerry Springer Show! (<--- This was filmed a awhile ago before my other brother was in the band.)
7. I didn't really travel anywhere [besides New England] until I was 18. The traveling bug hit me hard and now it is one of my favorite things to do. My babe and I are currently planning a big trip! Details forthcoming. :)
My seven nominations go out to:(Seven of my favorite WIAWers!)

1. Bec @ Half Baked

I love wagon wheel pasta - it is such a fun shape! :)

  1. Aww thanks for nominating me! I'm so touched!

  2. Wagon wheels! I haven't had those since I was about 8. Good eats!

  3. Happy WIAW! Your pasta with veggies looks great. :-)

  4. Thanks for the nomination! I actually did this several months ago, so I probably won't repeat, but thanks for thinking of me. I love that you dressed up as bacon- that is hilarious. :) Great idea with the wagon wheel pasta- my daughter would love that!

    1. You're welcome :) Being a slice of bacon was certainly different but lots of fun lol

  5. Thanks for the nomination! I'll be on that soon. :) I missed WIAW again because of horse camp, but I'm going to do it next week :) Also, I am in LOVE with your bacon costume. So creative.

  6. Love your bacon Halloween costume!!! Too funny!

  7. Oh wow thanks so much! That was such a sweet thing to do :) It's a total shame I can't nominate you back :) You can deadlift 205 pounds? O.M.G. You're like a goddess or something. And seriously, who doesn't love bacon? :)

    1. Aw, thanks SO MUCH for the kind words - you always leave the nicest comments that make my day! Have an awesome weekend :)

  8. Loved reading your answers! I just got home from Maine last night and haven't read any blogs for the last week, but totally thought of you as we drove through MA :)

    1. Hehe, it was fun thinking up some neat facts - thanks again for the nom!! Hope you had a great time in Maine :D
