Betty White and Bradley Cooper

Hello, Monday! I wasn’t hoping to see you so soon, but let’s make the best of it now that you’re here!

  • Omg, can I just say it is COLD out? I’m sure it is everywhere, but I really wish we could hike up the temps a bit. This morning when I went to warm my car up, it was so cold my radio said “CODE,” which is a security measure, and only happens when my battery dies or someone tries to steal my stereo. Now I have to figure out what that code is because it’s one quiet ride without it. Anyway, I really shouldn’t complain because New England has it bad right now. I wonder what the work snow day policies are for storms like these?!
  • Did you guys watch SNL 40 last night? I’m not gonna lie, I actually didn’t know the special was happening, but when I saw it on Facebook and Twitter, I switched it on immediately and it really made my Sunday night all the better. I have the last half hour to catch yet, but I just loved Bradley Cooper and Betty White’s make out session. She really is someone to look up to, with so much energy and life in her 93 years and I thought it was awesome that Bradley Cooper took part!
  • In case you missed it, sushi burritos exist! I posted on Twitter and Facebook about this because I was that enthusiastic about the match made in heaven and I even found a spot in Philly to try out sometime soon!
  • I really admire this military wife’s point about the difference in feeling afraid and acting afraid, as she takes a brave stance against possible ISIS threats.
  • On the menu: Yesterday at Whole Foods, I came across purple and orange cauliflower and got super excited. I picked up a  head of the purple and can’t wait to mash it up tonight with tandoori  mango chicken sausage.
  • Currently Reading: Still Alice. I really want to see the movie, but I am big on reading the book before seeing the film, so I just picked myself up a copy.
What were you up to this weekend? I hope week is off to a wonderful start!

  • Omg that sushi burrito sounds amazing, how have I not seen that before?! Also tandoori mango chicken sausage sounds the best too – all this food I need to find! I had quite a relaxing weekend which was nice, got lots of blogging done and had a bike ride so feeling very productive! xx

    • You should look to see if they have anywhere serving the sushi burritos in your area! The sausage was delicious as well. If there is Whole Foods by you, you should give it a try. 🙂 Your weekend sounds productive and a bike ride sounds so relaxing. I wish the warmer weather would get here soon!

  • purple and orange cauliflower! sounds interesting! I love cauliflower so much, I just had some last night 😀


    • I love it too because it’s so versatile! I was worried it wouldn’t keep the color because I boiled it instead of steaming, but it held up nicely! The water was a deep purple too, so it has some dye-like properties like beets. I want to try the orange kind next. 🙂

  • I am SO in love with Betty White!! To be honest though (and this is awful) I always get nervous for a second when I see her name pop in the papers because I’m worried it will be some sad news :

    And I’m not a meat eater, but tandoori mango chicken sausage sounds amazing!! Are you making it from scratch or is it something that you buy? If you have a recipe, please share because I think my partner would go nuts for it.

    • I am too. 🙂 I bet she’s really a superhero and will make it to 110 at least! Or that’s what I hope!

      Whole Foods offers the tandoori mango chicken sausage in the butcher section and it was amazing! The flavor combo is definitely worth trying it out in other dishes too.
