The Friday Five - 10.5.121. What I'm reading:
I just finished reading Divergent, the first in what will be a trilogy. Think of it as the Hunger Games meets G.I. Jane. I read the whole thing in an embarrassing 3 days (my priorities are fine, thanks for asking).
2. What I'm listening to:
Can I just rant for one second??? This may make me sound like an old bird, but popular music today is just terrible. (I picture saying this in a granny voice). But seriously.... I turned on the "major" music station in Columbus yesterday, and heard a tune called "Blow my whistle baby." Are you serious??? I cringe at the fact that 12-year old girls are probably singing along to this garbage. There is only one radio station in our city worth it's salt, and when it's on commercials, I want to cry. It's either CD 102.5 or NPR, and Emerson is not nearly as entertained by the news as the music. She'll learn.
This is the song rolling through my head this morning (fast forward to :59):
3. What I'm Eating:
I've been obsessing over the Starbucks Bacon Egg Gouda sandwich lately, so twice this week I've treated myself to one of those plus a pumpkin spice latte. $8 later, my wallet is lighter but my belly is happy! I will try not to think about the fact that I could have had a Denny's Grand Slam Breakfast for the same price, plus tip.
4. What I'm laughing at:
5. Recipes I'm bookmarking:
Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole - how could this not be delicious on a chilly fall day??
Jalepeno Popper Chicken.... loves me some spicy goodness!
Mini Apple Pies - perfect Thanksgiving food!
