101 in 1001 3.0 1 Month In

Back on June 27th I started my 3rd 101 in 1001 challenge.  You can see the entire list here.  Here is what I have been working on in the first month.

I can't promise that I'll remember to take pictures for every goal, or keep up with that for nearly 3 years, but for now at least you can also follow along with my challenge on Instagram. #3Bri101in1001

#1. Begin 101 in 1001 (yes I am fully aware that this one is a cop out)

#4 Workout weekly

#5 Project 365 2015

#8 50 Book Challenge 2015: 9/50

#11 Volunteer Monthly

#12 Drink 64 oz of H2O daily

#17 Save change for 1001 days

#21. Try 101 new bars/resaurants

Lago Tacos - Minneapolis, MN

Lord Fletcher's Old Lake Lodge - Spring Park, MN

Rustic Inn Cafe - Two Harbors, MN

#32 Go on a spontaneous road trip.  I'm not quite sure if a day trip within the state is good enough or not but for now it counts.  Kickass Cousin & I took a day trip on the 20th.  It'll be on the blog August 12th.

#53. Write a letter to me to open at the end of the challenge

#61. Bake something new each month

Red White & Blueberry Pie (recipe below)

#77. Listen to a new artist each month

Greg Michaels

#82 Make a list of what I want in love (coming to the blog August 5th!)

#87 Dance in the rain.  I haven't decided if it's cheating or not to count something that happened before the list started...  Dancing in the rain is how things with Oklahoma started.  For now it counts...but maybe hopefully it'll happen again before April 2018.

#88 30 miles in 30 days (70.27 miles in the first 30 days)

#93. Take a picture of myself on the 1st of every month

#100 Go on a date once a month
(my challenge...my rules...friend dates count)

Red White & Blueberry Pie Recipe
1 refrigerator pie crust
4 oz white baking chocolate
1 quart fresh strawberries, divided
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup fat free milk
3.3 oz instant white chocolate pudding
1.5 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup thawed whipped topping

Preheat oven to 425.  Let pie crust stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.  Gently unfold into deep dish pie pan.  Prick bottom & sides.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cook completely.

Melt baking chocolate.  Remove the tops of 8 strawberries.  Cut in half through the stem end.  Set aside, slice remaining strawberries.  Dip the halved strawberries halfway in chocolate.  Place cut side down on waxed paper.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set.  Spread remaining chocolate over the bottom of the crust.  Arrange sliced strawberries on top of the chocolate.

Beat cream cheese until smooth.  Gradually whisk in milk until well blended.  Add pudding mix & powdered sugar until thickened.  Spread evenly over sliced strawberries.  Allow to set for a few minutes.  Spread whipped topping over cream cheese mixture.

Place halved strawberries around the edges of the pie.  Fill in the center with blueberries.  Chill until serving.
