I know these pictures are terrible but my phone is ancient and Nicholas can sense a camera from a mile away. So I snuck these in during Jeopardy last night. This week is Jeopardy Tournament of Champions. It’s nice to see the familiar faces of big winners from the past year… however going from a teen tournament to a champion tournament is really a shock to my intelligence – I don’t scream out nearly as many correct “questions” now.
I JUST tried Lays Chicken & Waffles Chips. Lays recently came out with three new chip flavors, Chicken & Waffles, Cheesey Garlic Bread, and Sriracha. These chips I just tried taste like… maple syrup… and chicken. Weird. I don’t put maple syrup on my chicken. This is something I’d try but never repeat buy.
Last night I made 4 chicken cutlets, dipped them in eggs, breaded them with Kraft’s Cheddar Jack & Bacon mix, put them in the oven for 15 on 375 and PERFECTION! I am excited to try all the flavors now. So easy and fun.
I picked Leonard Cooper from the beginning! On the 1st night of finals he was in 3rd place way behind the other two contenstants… but it came down to getting a daily double in the double jeopardy round… he wagered his 18,000 (which was almost ALL of what he had)… the audience gasped. At first I thought he was saying 1,800… no no it was 18 THOUSAND! Then the answer (question) was totally easy about 12 angry men being jurors. So Leonard had over 36,000 going into final jeopardy. He didnt get it right (I didn’t either, I said FDR like Nilai Sarda) but he won the tournament!! It was the most exciting come back in teen jeopardy history!!!
I was so excited last night for the first night of Jeopardy Teen Tournament finals. I ate a yellow cake cupcake with half chocolate half stawberry frosting and I was so happy. Unfortunately Leonard came in 3rd with 3,000 – way less than the other two contestants. If Leonard doesn’t win then I want Nilai, the adorable freshman.
Nicholini: Oh my sweet baby boy. He’s the greatest.
Coffee with cream only: I love a cup of coffee. MAYBE too much. Last Saturday I drank an entire pot and I was a shakey mess. I am on my 2nd cup today so far.
State Farm Insurance: I had a silly accident yesterday morning. Can I call it silly yet or is it too soon? I was dropping Nicholas off at Maria’s. I pulled in her drive way – and decided to leave the car running while I dropped him off since it was cold. WELL, I didn’t have the car in park. I got out of the car while it was still in drive and the car, with nicholas in it, drove into her house. I jumped back into the car and stopped it – but my car did some serious dent damage to her garage door… o…m…g… what do you do? what do you say? THANKFULLY I called up state farm and they acted like I was totally normal and they’re doing a wonderful job taking care of things.
Indian food: I never eat indian food… except for when someone I work with, who is from India, has a baby and invites me over to meet their baby and eat a LOT of Indian food. This happens like once a year… and it’s happening TODAY! Yum! At least I hope they’re serving Indian food. If they order a vegatarian pizza I will be so sad.
Jeopardy Teen Tournament: On a normal week night my routine includes Wheel and Jeopardy. I love the tournaments on Jeopardy. An added bonus to the teen tournament is that I get to shout out a lot more answers than I do with the regular show. Right now I want Leonard Cooper from Little Rock, AR to win. I do NOT want Barrett Block from Lexington, KY to win.
Clinton Kelly: I’m always loving Clinton Kelly. He’s totally the best.
