Na, these aren’t made from lions. I wish. I wonder what lion tastes like. OMG I’m kidding all you endangered species advocates. I won’t eat a lion. Unless I go somewhere that I can. Just being honest. These are pretty much asian meatballs. Just go with it.

I bought jeans this past week. Yep, I did it. I don’t know how I feel about them. They are a bit high in the waist. I think that look is in. I think that because Sergio said it. Yep, HE said it. I’m just not very hip. And my ass is huge so making it look longer is a terrible idea. Straight up, terrible. So I ended up wearing them in California and decided I kind of hate them. Probably because they are jeans. And make me look like a rhino. F*ckin rhinos. I’m going to find jeans though. Yes I am. Next time I’m going to spend 4 hours there instead of 2. YOUARESTUPIDJEANS.IHATEYOU.

I ate 1 too many caramel bars today. Being honest. Again. And yes, I will be posting the recipe. Stop freakin.

Ah f*ck. I just remembered something…I joined a kickball league. Yeah. I joined a league that is a ball sport. That was a dumb idea. My friend Tommy talked me into it. Really, I’m just hoping there are hot guys in it. There probably won’t be. No single ones at least. That’s probably better though. I am going to fully embarrass myself trying to kick a ball. I will most likely miss the ball, full on fall onto my ass. then maybe pee myself. I’ve been known to do that. That’s gonna get me a guy. A girl with bigger shoulders than a dude, with wet pants, and a car that smells like dirty children aka spoiled milk. Yep, I’ll catch myself a real winner soon.

I want to write a cookbook. But I don’t know where to start. Or what to do. How cool would that be though?! So cool.

    Hey juli! I’m gonna try these for dinner tonight. Could you recommend a quick side to go with? Also, when I put the coconut milk/aminos in, are the meatballs just kind of swimming in it I guess? Or do I kind of just drizzle it on top of the balls? (ha) Thanks!

    1. juli says:
