Ok, I am not even going to apologize for not blogging, I am just going to start again. : )
The new recipe I am trying for this week is in the oven right now. It’s from Healthy Tipping Point, and it’s mushrooms stuffed with hummus and then cooked in the oven. I actually enjoyed the post so much, because Caitlin says that mushrooms are one of the things she buys all of the time at the grocery store, but then forgets about, and they go bad. The same thing happens to me, even though I love them. I also have this problem with hummus. I buy it and then never feel like eating it. So, this recipe was a perfect marriage of two things I need to use in my refrigerator.
Here is the post from Healthy Tipping Point:
I will post pictures when they finish.
In the mean time, there were a few things I wanted to chat about.
First: MAGIC MIKE.
Hubba. Hubba. This is so weird for me, because I am not usually one to like the hunky, dopey type. I like the goofy, nice guy with dimples…hey wait. Maybe that’s it – the dimples! Channing Tatum has dimples. Yeah, that’s the ticket. ha ha . Truly, I know his body is amazing, but for me, that’s never been “the thing” that makes my heart go pit-pat. He is rather charming and funny in the movie, and I just LOVED the dance scenes. They delivered. But, what was most fun was going with my besties (one of them being Beth FS) on opening night. The theatre was PACKED. I am not sure which was more entertaining, the movie, or the audience.
Okay, Channing was definitely more entertaining.
The other thing is TOMKAT splitting. Oh.em.gee.
I mean, on one hand, I was completely expecting it but on the other hand, I was taken aback. And all of the gossip sites have been ALL OVER IT. At first, I was loving it, but now, it’s a bit too much. I mean, I had to have read over 17 articles about Katie speaking for the first time since the news, and the quote was, “I’m all right — thank you.”
Seriously. That is the quote.
Another thing I was obsessing over, and have now come to terms with is this.
In my heart of hearts, I know that she wasn’t cut out for this job, but the way it happened. Blech.
And Matt Lauer, you are on my $%# list. Even though you are an OU Bobcat, like my husband.
And last, but certainly not least. I am addicted to Downton Abbey. I am swept up in it, and can’t stop watching it. And my bff in California just told me that the third season won’t start until January. That’s not good seeing as the first season took me 3 days to watch.
Well, I hope everybody is staying cool. It is so hot in Ohio right now, that unless you are in a pool, you should be inside. My neighborhood is usually flooded with runners and walkers, even when it’s too hot for my liking. But, right now, nobody is out and about. And my car is broken, so I have been housebound. Hopefully we can get my car fixed sooner than later.
Maybe I should start playing the lottery. : )
Love to you all. Happy JULY!!!
Cheers, Beth WA
