|« A rainy but delightful Sunday||The New World »|
Oh, yes, pop culture!
It had been so long since I hung out with Rachel Ray, Emeril, and the Iron Chefs with such brain-numbing bliss....no, I take that back. Watching the Food network has engaged my creativity and brought some unique ideas for meals into my brainstorms. Wait, don't forget Alton Brown. Oh, this is heaven!
When I moved into this house, I decided it was time to re-subscribe to Basic cable (versus the limited $12/month lineup I survived on for the last three years). Of course, the "sweet deal" I got will end in a few months and I may have to reconsider my current cable addiction but for now I feel like I'm getting back into this world I've ignored for too long. This, HGTV, Comedy Central, and TWC are being watched like no tomorrow in my spare time. I mean, I just wish I had two heads, one to watch the Food Network and one to watch HGTV because I just don't know which one to watch sometimes!! I thought putting the TV in the basement would perhaps deter me from becoming glued to the boob tube, but when you combine this with wireless internet it's amazing what you can accomplish from this angle, such as what I am doing right now.
I'm a bit concerned about the next hurricane. Someone dear to me lives in New Iberia, and I hope he and his family stay safe during this rough upcoming weekend. Gosh, it's times like these I'm glad I live in Minnesota! Besides the tornadoes and crazy snowstorms, there just isn't as much to worry about.
Well, today at work I ordered the pizza of all Pizza from Pizza Luce. Brace yourself: This beauty packs broccoli, spinach, red onions, roasted garlic, basil, black beans, and feta cheese all on a bianca sauce with mozarella abound. I call this the Erika pizza. The best pizza you'll ever eat but the worst gas you'll ever get afterwards. Oh, but believe me, it tastes so good and with so many fresh A-friendly ingredients, it's worth every fart.
Anyone looking for a date? You bring the vino. I'll bring the Beano.
Yeah, well, OK, on that note I have a mega headache right now that's been building since early in the work day. I need to lie down and relax with some lavender. I'm almost to the middle of this Renew Life Cleanse and it's going so much better than I remember back four years ago when it seemed way too harsh. This time around it's so much better. My skin has never been clearer! I will definitely do this cleanse again perhaps next spring.
It seems like there was something else I was meaning to blog about but for now I must veg out with Iron Chef America. The secret ingredient is hamburger. Hmmm...is this some form of self-torture? I should really be going to bed.....
