Happy 2013 everyone!
The kids went back to school today. Therefore, life must return to “normal”. Normal, I suppose, includes a blog post! So, we have come to the point in the year, the first post of the year, where I tell you all the stats from last year.
Why? Why do I feel I must do this? Peer pressure? Everyone else is doing it!
If you are a regular around here, none of these posts will be new to you.
However, if you are new, maybe you’ll see something you like and go investigate.
According to the statisticians at WordPress, thank you very much, these are the posts that got the most views in 2012. (Strangely enough, all of the Top 5 are actually from 2011. I guess I can look at that in a couple of different ways…1) Stuff I wrote about in 2012 wasn’t as interesting as 2011 topics, or 2) These posts have staying power–like a little black dress! We’ll go with #2.
I had a hard time trying to decide my favorite post of 2012.
I piggy-backed this post in the BLOGtober series I did with Arkansas Women Bloggers. That was fun too. You can see that series here.
I think my favorite new recipe I tried was Cannellini Beans. Y’all, it is just so good!
Looking back on 2012, we really did a lot! We ate great food, at home and off of trucks! We visited family and friends. We crafted.
My favorite thing we did last year was make a pirate movie with the kids and some of their friends, then hosted the premier for the movie.
The planning, the scrounging, the cooking…it was all good!
And now, here are the Critics’ favorites.
Favorite dish–Pork Chops and Field Peas
Favorite Restaurant–The Bavarian Chef
Favorite Event–Movie Premier
Creative Title–Help! I ate something green!
Gross–Welch’s Fruit FIZZ

Now I know why people do the “year in review” post…happy memories! I plan on making some more in 2013! I hope you are there to share them with me.
