These are some images from the 2013 Downtown Jonesboro BBQ Fest. Country singer, Lee Brice was the headliner at the annual event.
There are opportunities in life that sometimes you just can’t pass up. I was able to experience one of those opportunities a few weeks ago at Auburn University. The Arkansas State Red Wolves’ football team played at Auburn and I was fortunate enough to attend. It wasn’t really about going to the game as much as it was about being at the game. The experience far out-weighed the outcome of the game. The SEC (Southeastern Conference) is one of the best conferences in the nation, if not the best. The environments the student-athletes play in can be quite intimidating, especially in the SEC. These are some of the images from the game, the crowd, the whole experience.
On a side note, Arkansas State lost 38-9.
I decided I wanted to mix up the sides I usually serve with dinner. Tonight it was baked carrots. Say what you will about carrots, but I like ’em!
Here’s what you need:
- (at least) 1/2 cup of carrots (fresh and sliced or baby carrots, you pick)
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- pepper (flavor to your tastes)
- Morton’s Nature Seasoning (flavor to your tastes)
Here’s what you do:
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Mix the olive oil, carrots, and spices together
- Cook for 15-20 minutes depending upon how soft you want the carrots. You may need to let it cook longer if the carrots are fresh and sliced.
I recommend mixing it up a bit. If you like, add a dash of cajun spices to the mix or go tame with pepper only. This is one of those recipes that is well suited for change. Give it a shot and then enjoy!
