First off, sorry about my delay. Secondly WELCOME! Today we will touch on a few things I’ve been thinking about over the past couple weeks. And what a more convenient way then to share it on a day that also starts with T. Sure I could’ve picked Tuesday, but I didn’t so chill.

Lets get to it….

Brussel Sprouts

  • Sure you’re all probably like ew what? No thanks. But hear me out. If you had asked me a year ago I would’ve agreed with you. However, that has allllll changed since I started ordering them as a side at restaurants. They are almost always served with bacon and some combo of balsamic or soy glaze (crack) and pan seared. As I’ve stated in the past bacon makes everything good. Except chocolate. I don’t understand bacon and chocolate. Anyways back on track. Once I had these sides at dinner, I thought this can’t be too hard. And it wasn’t. I used some teriyaki sauce and cut up some bacon and threw it all in a saucepan. I had used the crock pot earlier in the week to make pulled pork, so I also added that and some brown rice and I was in HEAVEN. Never underestimate your ability to create delicious meals with just a little bit of creativity and patience.

 The Nice Guys


  • I’m probably late to the party with this one, similar to the brussel sprouts, but this movie was one of the best I’ve seen all year. I, like most people, fell in love with Russell Crowe many moons ago. Gladiator is one of my favorite movies and every time I hear “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius…” I get so hyped. I feel like I don’t really need to explain why you would need to watch a movie with Ryan Gosling, because I mean its Ryan Gosling. This movie combines some great cameos, a mystery, and great comedy all in one. If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend, I can’t recommend this enough.
