6. Write down the recipe for your favorite meal.
Recently, my boyfriend and I found a recipe for cheese bread. We both love it! It contains a 1.3/4 cup of muffin mix, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of whole milk, 1/4 cup of butter and 1 cup of shredded cheese ( I like to use cheddar).  Mix everything together, put in the oven for 25-27 minutes, and it’s ready. I also like to add some herbs on top of the bread.

11. What fashion item are you currently lusting after?  
It might sound weird but it’s wide pants. I was always wearing skinny jeans and I got so tired of them. So now I’m trying to wear wide jeans/pants more often.
