2. Ohhh Sunday... After a pretty eventful Saturday night out...sometimes Sundays can be the worst. Drink a little too much?? Yes, then just call me Hangover. What's the best cure for a hangover?? A good breakfast, lunch, or dinner - depending on when you get up. Eggs are the bomb when I'm in this useless state. So, I lazily zombie walked it to the kitchen and threw together some rice, peppers, onions, a little soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and a fabulous fried egg. Ohh and lets not forget the Srirachi sauce. This hit the spot.
3. Now that it's almost November, it's time to start thinking about family functions. You know, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Family time is great - talk, laugh, eat good southern cookin', and ask Kelly about alllll aspects of her life. Specifically, love life. & Here's the deal... if I'm not seriously dating anyone, then I'm not gonna talk about them. There's really no need. Cause all I'll get is... "Who is he?", "Who are his parents?", "What does he do?".... blah, blah, blah. And that's great they are so interested, but I'm certainly not wasting my time talking about all this if I'm not sure I'll be with this person for a while or not. So the safe answer is - "I'm single". Yep.... and with that comes another can of worms... which leads me to this blog entry. When you're single, you get loads of comments..."How are you single??", "It'll happen when you aren't looking", "Aww...you'll find someone". Thanks for your sympathy folks, but it's really not needed. This blog is hilarious, but soooo true. If you're single and wanting some good comebacks for all the single talk this holiday season read this. :)
this. Atlantic by The Midway State. Such a great sound. And even though I've been listening to this for months... I still love it. Unfortunately you can't download this on iTunes in the US. But you can check out their website and hear some other stuff.
5. It must be the dorky gene in me, but I love seasonally themed foods. For dinner tonight I whipped up some Quinoa Stuffed Pepper Zombies. So cute.. and took no time to prepare. Sweet.
Quinoa Stuffed Pepper Zombies
Makes 4 Stuffed Peppers
What you need:
2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
4 Green Peppers
1 Cup Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
7.5 oz Tomato Sauce (aka. 1/2 a 15 oz can)
7.5 oz Black Beans Drained (aka. 1/2 a 15 oz can)
1/2 an Onion, diced
Salt to taste
For zombie face:
8 Sliced Water Chestnuts
4 Whole Olives
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Take your diced onions and saute them in a small pan until tender. Then mix together onion, quinoa, black beans, cheese, tomato sauce, and salt.
Take the tops off the green peppers and make sure to get all the seeds and pith out. Take the quinoa mixture and fill the green peppers to the top. Place them in some sort of pan. I used my bread pan... whatever works. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Remove from oven. Let cool for a few minutes. Take a waterchestnut, and half an olive and stick on the pepper with a toothpick for eyes. Use a piece of tomato or red pepper from salsa and use a toothpick for a mouth. Put some salsa in front of the zombie/pepper for brains. Done. Delish.
