Someone who is NOT off my show: the wonderful Mrs. 4444 over at Half Past Kissin' Time!
She's the one who lets us all come over and frag on Fridays.
She's cool that way!
Things that are off my show -
* Cake Pops
They WERE totally cool, delicious and slightly mysterious. I loved them for a time. But it's time to move on. It's time for people to make something else. May I suggest we move on to mini-pies or tarts?
I like Coke. It used to be that if I went somewhere that didn't carry Coke, I would order Pepsi.
Not anymore! I have standards!
If they don't have Coke, I'll take WATER (or I pick up my Coke before going there or I don't go there - yeah - I have issues.)
Don't say that I should be having water anyway. Don't say it!
* Bon Appetit magazine
One of my favorite activities was to pull up to the bar (in my kitchen) with a nice snack and an ice cold Coke and drool my way through this magazine. Seriously, reading about food is right up there with EATING it........almost better.
Anyway, Bon Appetit has outgrown me. I'm looking for REAL food: food with ingredients that are sold at my store, can be made in a reasonable amount of time and will actually taste good.
Who wants to make/eat
Matcha & Pistachio Halibut
Arctic Char Gravlax with White Grapefruit
Smoked Haddock Chowder
Lamb Tagine with Chickpeas and Apricots
Roasted Cauliflower (yes) with Date Syrup (never mind)
or even Tangerine Souffle with Citrus Coulis?
If you do, go get the October 2011 issue.
* Bare midriffs
Oh you didn't know they were coming back in did you?
Shirts are getting shorter.
And it's not totally back in yet but I'm here to tell you it's out!
It's off my show.
I don't want to see anyone's bare stomach
* Political statements on Facebook
I have "friends" who post 3-4 totally one-sided, unconfirmed, completely biased statistics and "facts" in their stati <- plural for status, every day.
I'm not sure why I care, but I'm defriending them.
* 85 degree weather.
I want fall weather.
Have a great and wonderful weekend!
