Currently is a weekly link-up with the lovely ♥ 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 trying, wearing, choosing, laughing, tasting this week? Over here, we have been...
Trying a candy for the first time. Loretta took one little taste of a lollipop yesterday afternoon, insta-chomped down on that sugary explosion, turned away from Rob (the culprit who gave her a sweet), and started heading for the hills. I think she knew she was in immediate danger of having this goodie taken away. She just started walkin, ha! Lollipops are serious business, people. She'll shank a punk who tries to steal her lolly.
Choosing to join the gym today. Wish me luck that I don't come up with an excuse since this is like month two of me saying this every few days!
Laughing at how much I love the song Blurred Lines. You guys should see me dance to this song! It is like my soul grows roller skates and I am on a Soul Train dance line and I'm the STAR! Except I'm in my kitchen getting side-eyed by Otto while he requests the Star Wars score for the five thousandth time. But for reals, this song is the best song in the history of the world AND has ruined every drive in my awesome minivan because I spend the whole time worried I am missing this song on some other station and I can't stop changing the channel like a freak hoping I'll catch it and get to have a car dance party. Maybe it's time for me to join the 90s and get an ipod? Or probably this is something I could/should do with my phone? But then I would be the dork with a single song on her playlist, which right now would be fine by me. Because repeat, repeat, repeat! #Thicke ♥
Tasting the homemade, baked chicken nuggets I finally made and they are awesome! I found a bag of organic chicken breasts at CostCo and used 4 of them to make a large-ish batch. For the crunchy fake-n-bake I mixed crushed Annie's cheddar crackers, ground flax, whole wheat flour, ground garlic, salt, pepper, corn starch. Defrost, cut, and dip each piece in a mix of egg & olive oil, dredge in seasoning mix, and bake on a wire rack over a cookie sheet at 425' for 20 minutes. I combined about 10 recipes I found online to come up with this recipe and it was a smashing success. We froze most of them and use them just like you would store-bought pre-baked nuggets. Guess what song I listened to on repeat while baking? Every nugget get up! Hey hey hey hey hey!
That was this week. Here are next week's themes:
