If you have me over for dinner, leave these items off the menu

I know it may come as a shock to most people to find out that there are actually foods that I don’t like. I’ll admit, it’s a rare occurence, but there are foods I don’t eat. It’s not that I despise them so much that I can’t eat them, but I certainly won’t order them off a menu and I generally don’t cook with them. Now, that’s not to say that I won’t like them in the future. My tastebuds certainly do change throughout the years. I used to hate macaroni and cheese (so weird right?) and broccoli and now I eat them both on a regular basis. But, for now, these are the foods I’m not so thrilled with.  Continue reading

Filling Foods?

I have been told by weight loss experts that fruit and veggies are what they call “filling foods” and that eating an apple or some broccoli is a great way to curb your hunger. I want to believe this, I really do, but time and time again my body tells me this is false. Continue reading

Picking out the Christmas tree

Tis’ the season to pick out a Christmas tree! And for us, it’s our first Christmas tree as a married couple. I was so excited for the bonding experience of picking out a tree together, and for getting it all set up in our apartment. However, when we arrived at the farm, I quickly realized that the Christmas tree Matt had envisioned was quite different than the one I had envisioned. What should have been a happy occassion, quickly turned a bit tense as we argued over which tree to get. I felt sorry for the guy helping us. Continue reading

I don’t have children so….

Happy Halloween everyone! I loved seeing all the costumes of the trick or treaters yesterday! I don’t have children, and I’m getting a little too old to go out trick or treating anymore (although if I feel the urge to dress up there is usually a Halloween party going on somewhere I could always crash). But anyway, since I don’t have children and I would feel slightly ridiculous dressing up myself – I came up with the next best thing… Continue reading

The least exciting way to cook a chicken

If you want to suck all the flavor you can out of chicken and eat an extremely dry, almost tough in texture piece of meat I suggest you poach it. I wanted to make chicken enchiladas this week and the recipe said to boil the chicken in a pot of water and then shred it for the enchiladas. I had never poached chicken before, and I knew it probably wouldn’t taste as good as roasting or pan frying would, but I did not know that it would be quite so bad. Continue reading

Change of Taste…

Over the years, my taste buds seem to have changed. No doubt, they will continue to change as well. When I was a kid I loved Macaroni and Cheese, until one day, when I was probably around 5 or 6, I saw my mom making it and for some reason it grossed me out. I hated mac and cheese for years after that. Now I happen to love it again, although it would probably be better if I didn’t (mac and cheese is loaded with calories).

I used to love hot dogs, then I hated them, now I’m somewhere in between. I hated broccoli as a kid. Literally the smell of it would make me gag, but now I love it – it’s one of my favorite vegetables. I roast it in the oven at least once a week. I got sick after eating cream of mushroom soup once and I’ve never felt the same way about it again. Continue reading

Reasons to Smile

If I think about all the things I have to do that I’ve been avoiding, and if I start thinking about the work weeks ahead of me, and the cold winter that is drawing closer by the day, it is fairly easy to become depressed. It’s not that I hate my job, but I don’t love it either. I don’t wake up everyday dying to get to work. I hit the snooze about 20 times, roll out of bed at the last possible minute, and grumpily stumble out the door. Then I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Some days are good, some days are bad. Sound familiar? I have a feeling most people experience a similar scenario every day. Continue reading

The Puppy Debate

I love dogs. I love them so much that sometimes I have to remind myself that they are not actually human. Growing up in Asia, we always had at least 2 dogs, usually more (they are not real big on neutering or spaying pups over there). There were so many stray dogs roaming the streets, and sometimes one would just wind up on our door step and my mom would take it in. My mom is probably more dog obsessed than I am, and probably part of the reason why I love them so much – a combination of learned behavior and genetics. Continue reading

Be aware of…people on a seesaw??

The sign that stumped us all

There are many road signs out there that don’t always make sense to me. Like the pictures of deer crossing. I mean it’s good to be aware, but there is very little you can do when a deer jumps out in front of you. This sign is basically just a way to cause paranoia. One of my favorite comedians, Brian Reagan, does a standup bit about the ridiculous-ness of some of these road signs (like the sign that says beware of falling rocks, or speed monitored by aircraft). But all of those, I suppose, do serve some sort of “warning” purpose, even if there is very little you can do about it. Continue reading
