Asian Chicken Salad
I’m still obsessed with mayo. Since I figured out how to make it in seriously 30 seconds, I haven’t been able to stop. And all I think about is new ways to mix it up. Hence Asian mayo. I want to create every sort of mayo possible to make every sort of chicken salad possible. I LOVE chicken salad. And it’s going to save me a balls ton of money since I won’t be buying Whole Foods chicken salad. That sh*t is $11.99/lb. Crazy sh*t right there.
I absolutely ABSOLUTELY, never ever ever want to see the movie ‘The Conjuring’. No. No way. I truly hate scary movies. Especially true story ones. Now that’s just effed up.
Speaking of scary, sneezing while driving is especially frightening. My allergies are a bit out of control right now and I sneeze every time I drive. I’m pretty sure it’s more dangerous than drinking while driving or texting while driving. But it’s legal. Well, that’s all I have to say about that.
I’ve officially had to block 2 people on Instagram. I didn’t think that would ever have to happen. But some guy was real mean and the other guy was real crazy. Both had nothing to do with food or paleo or my blog, just hatred towards me. It’s odd. Girls are usually the mean ones, not bros. Oh how things change as you age. Girls just become way cooler.
It’s strange. I only follow people I want to follow on Instagram. Then envy their lives. Do you ever do that? I totally do. That’s why I follow mostly non-paleo people. I envy their delicious meals and drool over their Instagrams. Non paleo food tends to be more exciting to look at. Just another fact.
Guess what? I leave for South Dakota this week. Never been. I’m going to pose next to those huge heads carved into the mountains. Who doesn’t love giant head pictures? I got a big one, got to show it off next those great heads. Just you wait.Print
