People, I’ve been holding out on you.
Over the last month, Marcus and I have embraced a Scorched Earth Policy and have watched four seasons (working our way through five) of Weeds, care of Netflix On Demand.
You know it’s an addiction when you keep it secret from the ones you love.
And since Seasons 4 + 5 focus on drug cartels and things going on South of the Border, the show has turned into an adult-version of Dora the Explorer for me.
Behold: Aqui y alli.
Proficiency is near. I can feel it.
Other things I’ve been holding out on y’all: Khara, Kristi, Priyanka, Stephanie and Tracey have all given me shout-outs on their blogs in the last week or-so for this award and that. I’m Stylish and Trendy but have yet to be given the Able To Disguise Blonde Roots In A Way That Suggests Foliage Award.
I have a feeling I could be waiting a long time for that one.
In all seriousness, I so love the blogging community and all of the connections I’ve made (and continue to make!). I learn new things from all of you, every day. Thank you, ladies! xoxo
And kittens, go check them out. Obviously.
Apparently, this week I’m the Picture of Industry when it comes to the kitchen. Tonight I took a whack at an extreme variation of Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups and Marco Canora’s Tuscan Fries from Salt to Taste.
I’ve been dying to try this type of dish (meat rolled around other, similarly delicious things) for probably three years now.
Why the wait?
I mean honestly, how simple is this concept? Pick a Protein. Pick a Vegetable. Pick a Cheese. Pick a Sauce. Season. Roll.
You can make this dish with pretty much whatever is in your pantry. Out of chicken? Go beef. Tired of cream sauce? Try a glaze. Hate asparagus? Bell peppers would work well. You don’t have those herbs? Oregano is fine.
And, most importantly, it looks like you tried when you plate it.
What’s a recipe you’ve been dying to try but just haven’t found the energy to attempt?
What TV shows are you watching lately?
Besides Weeds, I’m all about: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, glee, Biggest Loser, I Used to Be Fat, Millionaire Matchmaker and all manner of Food Network cooking shows.
