So WHAT Wednesday

sowhatwed

Today’s Wednesday and I am saying SO WHAT if…

  • NF kissed a girl at the park last night and I wrote it down in his baby book
  • I stayed up way too late watching the Baltimore riots on fox on Tuesday night
  • I was too upset about Willow Shields being voted off Dancing with The Stars… she had high scores!!!  She cried and it broke my heart, I kept forgetting that she was 14 (only remembered when they kept reminding you).  So I REMEMBERED to vote.  I kinda think that ABC purposely places a shocker elimination around week 7 to hype up the show… but I so desperately want to believe the voting is real… the voting IS REAL!
  • The DWTS 10th Anniversary Special was a nice surprise for a Tuesday night
  • I want Robert and Kym OFF DWTS already (is ABC secretly keeping him on to promote Shark Tank UGH)
  • Bethenny on Real Housewives of NYC…. I loveeee but she is RUDE!  So rude.
  • I can’t handle that there are only two more episodes of Mad Men left
  • WHAT is Shonda Rhimes DOING TO ME with Grey’s
  • I can’t believe that survivor is on their 30th season… and I am sad Jenn Brown is out
  • I’ve been trying to drink 100 oz of water a day for over a week now… and I pee ALL THE TIME… I don’t feel or look any different either
  • my car really needs to be washed
  • I am not hungry but I just want to keep eating
  • I buy more things than I need to at target to get the gift cards
  • I am trying not to be but I am fascinated by Bruce Jenner
  • Tyler Fredrickson will probably win survivor this season
  • SO glad Jon Bones Jones was fired by Reebok… good

Today is Wednesday and I am saying SO WHAT if…

  • Google says my earth day animal is a mantis shrimp

  • I cried during teen mom when Carly’s parents gave Catelynn some of her baby stuff for her new baby
  • I am nervously counting down the days until Bruce Jenner’s interview on ABC Friday night
  • I am concerned Food network is trying to replace Paula Deen with Nancy Fuller and it’s just no where close to the same.  I know people were pissed at Paula… but I miss her… and I want her back.
  • I kinda like Ramona Mario free…
  • I am on day 4 of drinking 100 oz of water a day… and I THINK it’s really changing my life… but maybe it’s just making me pee a lot more
  • NF went to the dentist for the first time this week and agreed to not suck his thumb… we get in the car and he pops it right back in

Cauliflower Couscous Paprika Shrimp Woman’s Day Recipe

We got a little wild last night and tried a Woman’s Day Recipe… C’s idea.. not so much mine.  I never thought in a million years he’d try out this one… Cauliflower Couscous Paprika Shrimp

downsized_0409051804

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. dried apricots (or 3 fresh), roughly chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 20 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 c. fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Remove and discard any leaves from the cauliflower. Thinly slice the head and place it in the bowl of a food processor. Roughly chop the thick stems and add them to the food processor. Pulse the cauliflower until it is finely chopped and resembles couscous (re-pulse any big pieces separately, if necessary).
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower, apricots, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining tablespoon oil over medium heat. Season the shrimp with paprika and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Working in batches, cook the shrimp until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  4. Add the cucumber and mint to the cauliflower and toss to combine. Serve with the shrimp.

Thursday Thoughts

Today is Thursday and I am linking up for Thursday Thoughts

TV-Mad Men Finales Season Five

Mad Men… 2nd half of the final season started Sunday.  I feel like I’ve been waiting for EVER for this to air.  It did NOT disappoint me either.  There is just something about Don Draper, I’m in love.  I was sad that Betty, Sally, or Megan were not in the episode.  I really hope they’re at least in it a little bit until the ending.

SO I hear Fresh off the Boat on ABC is hilarious and I should give it a shot… I plan to do this soon.

CHRIS SOULES, WITNEY CARSON

Just about the only thing I enjoy about this seasons of Dancing with the stars is seeing Demi Moore and Bruce Willis in the audience…. and watching Chris Soules get ripped appart by the judges (I DO love Chris Soules… it’s just uncomfortable and entertaining to see the judges just hate on him).

bobby

FIRST Giada de laurentiis now Bobby Flay… I hate when my food network idols don’t have perfect lives like I imagine them to.  Now I just kinda hope that Bobby and Giada get together?  Maybe yeah?

renunion

and normally I don’t think the housewives reunions are THAT great… but this one of Beverly Hills has kept my attention for sure.  Can’t wait for part 3.
