The Friday Five

Today I'm following in the footsteps of one of my favorite bloggers of all time, the beautiful Christina over at Hungry Meets Healthy. Her food blog is a daily read of mine, and has been on my reading list since I first started blogging. Her "Friday Five" posts have me laughing and salivating every Friday morning, so I thought I'd join in on the fun.

The Friday Five - 10.5.12
1. 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.

/Rant over.

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.

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!



  1. The Divergent Trilogy was so good! The first 2 books are the best (in my opinion), but they are all good!

  2. I love when you do posts like this (Who am I kidding!?, I love all your posts). These ones always make me giggle. TGIF!

  3. Aw, yay! Thanks for the sweet shout out. I love the lolsotrue pic!! And that jalapeno chicken looks great! Happy Friday!

  4. I loved Divergent!! I can't wait to read Insurgent!

  5. I LOVE those Starbucks sandwiches and can't even talk about PS lattes without needing to go get a fix.

    AND one of my kindergartners was singing "Blow my whistle" yesterday while coloring in her farm animals page. I shut that down reaaal quick. So...I hate to bear the news that people much younger than 12 are listening to that mess of a song.

  6. That is exactly how I feel/look when I'm bringing in the groceries!! Hilarious.

    And ps...I've made those mini apple pies and they are DELICIOUS!!
