This week marks the first week on my new shift at the station.
I now work a NORMAL PERSON’S SHIFT!
I’ve also gotten a chance to work with some fantastic reporters on some great stories. I still get to work with my favorite reporter, so that’s good news, too! I spent one whole day at the Oklahoma state capitol following around a sweet family seeking to reform daycare laws in the state…
I spent an afternoon with a very talented painter who helped the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s department by painting a “sketch” of a deceased female found in a ditch a week ago…
…And I have toured an area in the eastern part of state (near Tulsa) where the year’s first tornado occurred. It has been a busy, yet reinvigorating, week.
So bye-bye weird 2pm to 11 pm shift. It’s been swell. Hello, 9:30am to 6pm shift!
Another positive to this shift: I get to blog more!
I know you’re so excited about that.
So to kick off my new blogging prowess, I’ve decided to do teases for the upcoming week. A “tease” is what we in the TV news industry call a preview of an upcoming story; a short snippet to catch your attention and make you stay tuned for the next segment.
Here’s what you can expect me to shake and bake in the next few days:
- Mini Corndog Muffins
- Asparagus Tarts
- Jerk Chicken Casserole
- Harvest Nut Muffins
- Lemon Cheesecake Bars
- Chicken & Pea Bowties
All of these recipes look like they could be wonderful, so I’m excited to start making them! I’m especially looking forward to both the muffin recipes: the Mini Corndog Muffins and the Harvest Nut Muffins. Yum.
I’m also going to make it a point to go to the farmer’s market either this weekend or next weekend, so expect to see some spontaneous recipes pop up depending on what I find there! OKC is lucky to have such a great farmer’s market. It’s set up on the city’s Oklahoma State University Extension campus and it’s indoors and year-round. It’s a fantastic place to find fresh veggies, fruits, herbs, orchids, meats, eggs, milk and cheeses! Belle Kitchen even has a spot reserved and they make the BEST macaroons and donuts in the world.

I’m eager to see corn dog muffins! Congrats on your new shift.
Thanks! I’ve never worked normal hours my entire life. But then again this entire industry doesn’t really work normal hours…
Looking forward to it!
