So if you’re not on Facebook, this post doesn’t really relate to you. Sorry for not being sorry. You have made the conscious decision to not be part of the biggest social media tool in the world. Actually, I don’t know if that’s true. I hear MySpace is making a comeback. Ok, I don’t know if that is true either. Well, yes I do, it’s not. But seriously, Facebook runs this world. And if you’re out, it’s probably because you have more of a life than the rest of us. Good for you. You make me proud. I like you.

Back to the point though. I have a problem with Facebook sometimes. Nothing crazy, just a bit of a tiff. What’s up with being able to ‘like’ pictures, ‘like’ statuses, ‘like videos’. You can even ‘LIKE’ YOUR OWN STATUS? This issue needs to be addressed. Of course you like your own status you idiot. YOU wrote it. YOU thought it. If you don’t think your own status is incredibly witty and humorous, then you’re probably failing at life. I think all my statuses are effing badass. No one else does, but at least I’m getting a giggle out of it. God, sometimes I seriously think I’m so clever. I’m a mess.

My whole point though, I think people ‘like’ other people’s statuses because it’s easier than commenting. That’s just rude. I ‘like’ people’s comments all the damn time, but that because I AM rude. Ok, just kidding. I’m really just lazy. I’m going to stop doing that though. It’s just inconsiderate. So if your status includes “OMG I totally have a Tebowner right now!” since I can’t specifically ‘dislike’ your stupid post about sports, I will comment on it. That was just a big commitment, and let’s be honest, I probably won’t follow through. But I’ll try. Like with my wod buddy Jake. I’m sure he’ll have some annoying sports update to talk about this weekend via FB, so I will post a comment back to be extremely considerate. I care. Ummmm why am I even talking about this? This is dumb.

So I’ve noticed something…I have a lot more women followers than men. What’s up with that? Dudes can’t relate to my brazilian waxes? That’s dumb. And selfish. Or do you guys just not comment? Come on now. I like dudes. They don’t really like me, but I like them! I keep singing this song, but with dudes as the replacer for girls. Sing it saying dudes. Do it bro.

I am so thankful for waterproof band-aids. Seriously though. Band-aid improvements blow my mind. I literally don’t know how I’m going to get this one off my skin. It’s become one with me. Yes, I cut myself shaving. Yes, I’m like an awkward prepubescent acne ridden child who is obviously having to relearn how to shave after 10+ years. I hate hair. Not on dudes. I’m down with that.

Speaking of dudes with hair, Jason has started his “pick of the week.” He was suppose to write a review about this meal, but he’s lazy. F*ckin’ guy. He did say this was his pick of the week though. He liked it more than the hash. But he never tried the maple macadamia nut butter…let’s be realistic, that never made it to the gym. It didn’t even make it a day in my house. Jesus Juli.

Chicken and Butternut Squash Pesto
 
Prep time

Cook time

Total time

 

Serves: 4-5

Ingredients
  • 1-1.5lbs chicken breast*
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • ⅔ cups blanched almonds (or regular will do)
  • 1-1.5 cups basil
  • ½-1 cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Now time to make your pesto. So throw your almonds in the food processor turn on until you get a mealy powder.
  3. Then add your basil leaves and turn your food processor back on.
  4. Mix the two ingredients together, and while the food processor is still running, drop in your garlic cloves then slowly begin to add your olive oil to help combine.
  5. Then add your lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. Taste to see if you need to add a little extra of anything else.
  6. Now pull out a large baking dish, 9×13 would do well but smaller is ok too. Add your chopped butternut squash, chicken breasts, then pour your almond pesto over it. Mix around a bit with the spoon to help coat all sides of the food.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through* and butternut squash is tender. Use the “poke with a fork” test to check.

Notes
Depending how thick your chicken breasts are and how long you want this food to be baking, you may need to chop them thinner. I used super thick chicken breasts so the cooking time was longer than I would personally like if I was ready to dig in asap.

Ok, I know this picture is crap. I KNOW.

That’s even crappier. Oh crap
