I realized today that generic brand frozen chicken just does not cut it for me. I cooked one Tyson brand frozen chicken breast and one generic brand breast in the crock pot today. The Tyson breast was perfect and tender. The other one was dry. I will now never go back. And it just s happens that Tyson chicken breasts are on sale in Smith's/Dillon's stores right now.
(No, this is not another review/product endorsement. Just passing along the info because I'm a good person like that.)
Speaking of Kroger stores: Have any of you seen/tried the Blueberry Pomegranate Chocolate Chunk flavor? I tastes like blue cotton candy and has big chunks of dark chocolate AND it's double-churned (aka less fat.) It's like eating bit of heaven.
And I wasn't even compensated for saying that. Again, just passing it along out of the goodness of my heart.
The battery on my camera has died. And I can't find the charger. I want to take pictures of my kids and Christmas decor but can't. And every time I try with my phone, it just looks bad. I don't have instagram -- do they have it for Androids? Maybe that would help.
I am a video game widow. Superman has been sucked into Oblivion. (Not Skyrim -- wanted to do Oblivion first and got a copy from a friend.)(If you followed that tangent, I award you 10 geek points.) He got the game just before Thanksgiving and has played nearly every night since. It's not too bad, though. I generally fall asleep while reading on the couch around 10, then he wakes me and we head to bed around midnight. I've been getting more sleep than usual because of it!
Want to know what I've been reading? (I know you do. I'll bet you're just DYING to know.) I'e been reading Harry Potter. Now, that may not seem like a particularly unique or new thing for a person to be doing. It is for me, though, because I have never read Harry Potter before.
I'll let you get past the shock.
I love to read. And I'm pretty much a sheep when it comes to anything pop-culture related. If everyone else is reading/watching something, I'll probably hop on that bandwagon. But Harry Potter came out just when I was finishing high school. Then I went to college in a bubble. Then I got married and had two kids and pretty much REMAINED in a bubble. It wasn't until #5 came out that I realized how popular they were. And even then, I didn't really understand the appeal. A series about a teenage wizard in England? No way could I relate or have anything to gain from that.
I'm eating my words now.
I'm loving the series. I have seen most of the movies and know the end-game, but I feel like that makes the series richer for me. I have clear pictures of the characters and their voices and Hogwart's and I'm just loving it. I, too, can't believe I didn't read them sooner.
I now spend my days ignoring household tasks while I read about Harry and gang while munching on snacks. (Did reading Harry Potter make anyone else want to eat all the time? They're always talking about sweets or the banquets or something!)
So. I'm going to get a bowl of Blueberry Pomegranate ice cream and find our who the Goblet of Fire chooses to compete in the Triwizard Tournament!
