Currently is a weekly feature with  Randalin of Harvesting Kale  and I am her happy co-host each week. I hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using the provided themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. What have you been eating, drinking, watching, reading, learning this week? Over here, we have been...

Eating and eating and eating and eating... Junk food has ruled after-hours here at the Muth homestead. With all the guests we've had in town and late nights spent catching up and watching movies and watching Under the Dome (the radness) and even taking the kids to a movie (oh boy), we've just been eating garbage hand over fist. I even made homemade chicken tenders that I intended to bake but then ended up frying and the moral of this story is: we're all going to die of grease poisoning. I like to call eating like this shocking the system because you know you've got to keep your body on its toes. Jump start the ol' metabolism or whatever.

Drinking coffee and beer. I'm writing a book about how good this has been for my complexion, it's called "Chin Zit".

Watching my kids watch Monsters University with their Nana. Otto was a movie rockstar. Miss Etta ate all the snacks we'd smuggled in practically before the previews had ended (insaaaaanely long previews). She head-banged and body-moshed (ha, I feel like such a granny saying that, "she was doing the moshing like the teenagers do at the rock and roll concerts!") to the movie's songs while on Nana's lap and had us all cracking up. Then she spent the last hour of the movie roaming the hallway that's around the corner from the movie seating, trying to bust open the fire extinguisher and eat scavenged popcorn off the floor. Just us and every other parent with a kid under 2 in the theater... I was the caveman mom chasing her around saying, "no touch, no touch!"

Reading zilch. We've had loved ones in town. I've done nothing but eat garbage and drink zit potions and laugh and wallow in their awesome company. That's not totally true, we've been reading Where the Sidewalk Ends at Otto's bedtime and he loves it in true kiddo fashion, hurray! Why he's obsessed with the Paul Bunyon poem is beyond me but he also loves Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout so I'm down.

Learning to make chicken nuggets. I'm going to get a wire rack and start making baked ones by hand in big batches to freeze instead of getting them pre-frozen at the store. I'm way too excited about this plan.

That was this week. Here are next week's themes:
loving, craving, missing, listening, wishing
