You know when you’re in your car, driving away, listening to tunes, dancing (if you’re cool) and you start picking your nose, thinking for some reason no one can see you? No? I’m alone. Cool. I’m good at being the lone ranger. I do wonder how many people have seen me pick my nose though. Probably an alarming amount. But I’m really good with humiliation…obviously. I do it daily. Might as well do it in front of the public eye rather than just via blog posts. I won’t pick my nose in my cooking videos though, hopefully. My mother would literally stab me. Kidding.

My white bath mat has turned blue. I’m not sure what situation he got himself into to make himself change colors, but I’m angered with him because of it. Ok, it was actually my fault. I washed him with my darks. Why am I acting like my bath mat is a human being? God I’m weird.

Guess what Steph, Laura and I just got? Meaning guess what Steph just bought? A mini disco ball. For our living room. YEP. THAT’S RIGHT. We are going to have a legit dance part in our house. Sh*t is going to get wild. Meaning I’m going to be the DD and dance like a fool first in our living then on the dance floor at some random bar. You know when you’re at a bar and you see a girl dancing like a fool and you say “Wow, that girl is hammered”…yeah, I’m totally the girl you are talking about. But I’m not hammered. I just left my dignity at home with the disco ball.

Has pork ever made you feel drunk? This pork kind of made me feel a bit drunk. Maybe it was the two Americanos I had before I ate that made me talk a million words a second (exhibit A: the three paragraphs above) or the fact I just made love to some Coconut Creme Concentrate, either way, this pork was delicious. I freaking love ginger. I seriously only want to go to sushi get the ginger on the side of the plate. I hate sushi. I always tried to like it because it made me feel cool and mature, but when I eat it I feel like I’m going to crumble over and die. At least I can still eat ginger at sushi restaurants and have a really fresh palate. Fresh palates are cool.

    This sounds sooooo good… any tips on what to sub for the paprika for those of us unfortunate enough to be nightshade intolerant? Smoked paprika used to be my one true love in the spice cabinet and now I can’t have it anymore 😭
