The Arkansas State University vs. Auburn Football Game

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.

The Baked Carrots

The Baked Carrots

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!
