For your reading pleasure I’ve put together my sometimes annual Redhead Ranting 2016 Roundup. Every other media outlet does a roundup so I thought, what the heck, I’ll do one too!
I’m actually surprised I wrote enough this year for a roundup. In fact, I actually wrote and published 60 posts this year, which is my third time high since I started blogging in 2007. It’s twice as much as I wrote last year.
There were basically 4 categories this year, the election, my mother, recipes, and Prince, and an outlier about Dini the cat. It’s a long post, and most didn’t bother to read it, but it’s one that harkens back to my early days of blogging, when I just told a story and enjoyed the journey.
Blog Posts about the Election
I really didn’t think he’d win, and I might watch too much Walking Dead.
Blog Posts about my Relationship with My Mother
My relationship with my mother is difficult at best, but it isn’t unique. I also posted a story from my book, Minnesota Nice.
I cook a lot this year, mostly because I got an Instant Pot – the most awesome thing ever!
Authentic Minnesota Tater Tot Hot Dish Recipe – Seriously, if you try a new dish in 2017, make it the MN Tater Tot Hotdish, you won’t be sorry.
Best and Worst in Books and Movies and Blogs
I saw and reviewed several movies this year, they aren’t worth sharing here except for one exceptionally horrible movie I really hoped would be awesome. It wasn’t.
Prince and Jacob
2016 was a year of loss, but these two are still difficult for me to reckon with.
