Blah Blah Blah

Well, I did it! After 8 weeks of both zumba & boot camp combined, I lost an inch everywhere! Even from my boobies!!! Plus I broke my own personal record of doing 38 sit ups in 2 minutes.

I think what worked so well for me this time is writing down every single thing that went down my gullet. And I learned a valuable lesson: put the fork down, porky!

Christmas was good, my butt looked good in my newish jeans.

I got some cute Betsy Johnson accessories, a new winter coat & a sexy new cardigan.

Size 10 is within my greedy grasp

Monkey Do, Monkey Don't

Top Chef recap, y'all!

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants are randomly split into 4 teams of 4 for a mise-en-place relay. However, instead of the winners receiving immunity, they will be a big chunk of money. Works for me! They must break down racks of lamb, clean & peel artichokes and mince garlic. Think large quantities, people.

Oh but wait, there's more! The first team to finish their prep has 15 minutes to create a dish w/ said ingredients. However, the longer it takes the other teams to finish, the less time they have to cook. You didn't think it would be that easy, did ya?

So, even though the cocky bastards on the green & red teams finished first, they're dishes sucked. The wieners of the big sack o' money was Blue Team consisting of Stephen, Tre, Blais & Spike w/ their lamp chop and artichoke 3 ways & aioli. Sexybeast has enough of the cheftestants doing "trios".

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants stayed in their groups & were assigned a famous NY restaurant, then cook head to head (to head to head) against their team mates to create a dish done in the style of the said restaurant.

Antonia, Angelo, Tre & Dale T. (Mr. Asshole!) all were top contenders. Out of this group I wanted Antonia's playful peas n' carrots to win. But alas, top honours went to Mr. Asshole's pork belly & "breakfast flavours" ramen. Grr! If he wins, I'm putting my foot through the TV. This week's suckers were Dale L., Fabio, Stephen & Tiffani (poop!). And it was a real nail biter! Oh did I forget to mention it was a double elimination this week? I thought Stephen & Fabio were going home & I was half right. Goodbye, Stephen! I'll miss yr beautifully starched shirts. And....Dale L. Say what?! The judges are definitely not fucking around w/ the cheftestants this season.

Stay tuned..

That's What I Want

Money is the root of all evil. And fuck it I want to be deliciously EVIL! I'm either going to have to get a second job or a new better paying full time job. Neither prospect thrills me.

Anybody got a spare winning Lotto ticket?

Sorry for my lateness w/ the Top Chef recap. Yesterday was SB's birthday and we went out for Mexican.

For the Quickfire, Joe Jonas, yes that Jonas that wears the purity ring and plays that bubblegum garbage, was the guest judge. The cheftestants had to make a portable kid's snack. Jamie grumbles about how much she hates children. Hmmmm, you know where that attitude will get ya, turkey lips?! The losers were Mike I (HA! HA!) because who wants to eat chocolate covered polenta, Tiffany's big crumbly mess & Stephan's unmarried flavours (Joe Jonas said that! Who knew?) And there's a twist of course! There was a tie between Tiffani's Snoball/whoopie pie & Spike's (blech!) carrot & potato chips w/ dip. Really? Blech! And they have to split into 2 teams to make all the snacks for kids at a museum. Tiff won, 'natch. Carrots vs. marshmallow, carrots don't stand a chance.

For the Elimination Challenge, the 2 teams had to cook breakfast for the kiddies and their parents the next morning. Since Tiff won the Quickfire, she had the choice of either making an entire breakfast w/ either just meat & dairy or just fruit & veg. She chose the carnivore foods but her team sucked. Spike's veggie heads won & Fabio got extra props for making gnocchi. I have many problems w/ this. #1 Fabio always makes pasta...ALWAYS. #2 I think it's a cop out to make gnocchi for breakfast...not a breakfast food.

While the losers stood in front of the judges, Jen defended her bland eggs and soggy pork belly bacon to the point where she was very belligerent to the judges. Practically screaming. It was uncomfortable. And Jamie cut her finger and needed 2 stitches.....2. And was not around for the majority of the day. She cooked nothing and yet she was not sent home. Good bye Crazy Pants Jen!

P.S. She remained composed for her exit interview but, boy, was she a-cussing & screeching off camera.

And we're back w/ Top Chef recaps. This time 'round we are treated to the ghosts of Top Chef cheftestants past.

Season 1: Tiffani, hated her 1st time around. She's overly aggressive and I suspected she was sabotaging other cheftestants. Time has mellowed me because I don't find nearly as irritating.
Stephan, the sommelier. Fancy dresser, very snotty. And I find myself oddly oddly attracted to him. Guess Sylvia Plath was right.
Season 2: Elia, I almost liked her but then she totally lost all her integrity w/ me after she colluded in assaulting Marcel. She's meh w/ me.
Marcel, obnoxious tool box. However, he takes risks and he's pretty innovative.
Season 3: Tre, work horse.
Dale L., hurray! I really like this guy
Casey, I don't know....she rubbed me the wrong way
Season 4: Richard Blais (whom everyone is calling by his surname only) the cocky gastro molecularist. Jesus, Blais, will you quit whining that you did not win yr season!
Antonia, she never really made an impression on me. This time around, I might bet on her.
Spike, blech. Dale, take Spike w/ you!
Season 5: Fabio, every one's favourite Italian. Except me, I never got the Fabio fuss.
Carla, the velociptraptor. She bugs!
Jamie, if she keeps the complaints to a minimum, then I'll root for her.
Season 6: Jen, don't take yrself so seriously. She's an outstanding chef but man she has a bitch face.
Mike I, see Dale & Spike.
Season 7: Angelo, annoying git
Tiffany, nope she still grates.

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants worked together w/ their season teammates to create a dish that represented the city where they filmed their season. Wow, that was wordy! I hoped I explained it clearly. And the bottom of the barrel were Season 2's overly salted shrimp tacos on a too thin green apple "taco shell" (ick!), Season 1's overly powerful garlic seasoned gazpacho, Season 5's non cohesive trio of apple dishes & another overly salted dish of crab cakes from Season 7. Which leaves leaves seasons 3, 4 & 6 duking it out for immunity. And it goes to Season 4's homemade sausage & mustard ice cream......erm savoury ice cream...idk.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to cook the dish that sent them a-packin'. The only caveat being they can improve upon the dish but not change it drastically. Par example, if you made fish tacos the first time, they could not make fish stew this time.

There was a bit of contention as Blais was called in w/ the best chefs but was immediately sent away as he was still plating after time had run out. I don't think this was done maliciously but then Dale was complaining it was a bullshit decision. Dude, he broke a fucking rule, get over yrself! And winning dish went to Angelo's (BOO!) ramen & Asian spiced pork belly. Begrudgingly, I would eat sounds yum. And 1st to get the boot was Elia because she never changed her loser dish of fish wrapped in a banana leaf.

Shocking decision, Elia's a consistently good chef. Shaping up to a fun season!

Keep on Keepin' On

I saw Harry Plopper Friday night. Brilliant! I think most of the adaptations of the novels to film have been very well done. I wasn't a fan of "Goblet of Fire" but that was also my least favourite out of the series.

Anyways, the set design was incredible and, holy golly!, Rupert Grint was outstanding.....angst, bitterness....incredible.

And I loved the cliff hanger ending. Voldemort, you evil bastard!

In other news, SB really wanted pizza for lunch on Saturday, so I picked up a take n' bake pie @ Hanaford. The cheese was plentiful, the toppings & sauce were total yum. THE CRUST WAS ABYSMAL!!!! Thick and mushy and did not crisp up at all in the oven. SB says he will never eat Hanaford pie again. Personally, I think if we tweak the temperature and cooking time, it might do the trick. SB says if we spend $9.99 on a pie, we should spend the money on a fresh pie from Marino's.

In late breaking news, Squeaky the cat, just sneezed on me. She's so damn cute that I can't stay mad at her.

Sleepy and Cranky

1) What irritates you more: misspellings or mispronunciations? Oh golly, that's like choosing which I hate more Hitler or killer radioactive monkeys.

2) If your child wanted to marry outside of your faith/belief system, how would you feel about that? Oh boy, more imaginary children questions! Love is love is love is love...

3) If you could reverse one law, which one would it be? Public nudity

4. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute "friend" or nomenclature that works for you. (Nomenclature? Can you tell that I stole this question?) I'm not a parent, the family tree ends w/ me.
Substituting the word kid for friend, I make everyone happy w/ my giving spirit. Or something.

5. If money was no object, and you had a free month or so, what would you love to do? Travel, finish the attic.

6. Why did you start your blog? Was it because you were pissed at someone? I started my blog because I wanted to write and feel like I was being creative. Or something.

7. Kimber and Berleen (Thunks founders & BFFs) are finally going to meet in person. Who are you friends with in the blogosphere that you'd love to meet? Why? Sophia Walker because she's cool as ice.

8. When you were in high school, if you can remember back that far, what mistake did you make that you'd like to change? Not be such a doormat

9. Do you believe in forever, as in 'love forever'? Forever.....kinda hard because we all die. Everything dies
