Mediterranean Snacks Giveaway Winner

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my Baked Lentil Chips giveaway sponsored by The Mediterranean Snack Food Company!

The winner is lucky number 1 via  That means SassyAgapi is the winner!  Congrats!  I'll be e-mailing you shortly.

In other news, I am sooo excited for Spring!  I've even started to ride my bike to class and work again as long as it's not raining/snowing and above 30 degrees (ideally 40 or more).  Riding the bus is nice and all, but biking is so much quicker.  I've also decided to experiment with biking after dark.  I very rarely did that last semester because I perceive it as dangerous.  I know a few other bikers who do it all the time though, so I decided to give it a try.  I've got blinking bike lights for the front and back of my bike as well as peddle reflectors.  So far it's worked quite well, and I just may be a convert.  I stick to main roads that are well lit and haven't had much trouble.  I think I'll look into a few more reflectors for my tires, etc. though just to be safe :-).

Have any of you or do any of you bike as a means of commuting?  I feel so empowered when I do :-).

  1. oh cool! thanks!

  2. We love biking. I live about 30 minutes away from my school, so I can't bike, but my husband bikes to work everyday!

  3. biking around champaign-urbana was great, really cut down on the commute time between classes (plus fun to ride through the cornfields on a sunny day!)


Thanks for commenting! I really appreciate it :-).
