Thinking Out Loud: Bits, Pieces, & the Mega-Torch of DEATH!

What up, my peepalicious peeps?!

Uh, just go with it. Hey, look at that…it’s Thursday…so I don’t have to make any excuses for the way my mind works! But I do have some pretty crazy bits and pieces floating around in there this week so um yeah, proceed with caution. 😉

So you know how mac & cheese never really tastes the same once you reheat the leftovers? Well, I used to think the secret was in adding a bit of milk to it…

Yolkporn Mac & Cheese

But who knew, I’d been missing out on another PRIME opportunity to bust out some #yolkporn! Truth be told, I’m STILL eating leftovers…partly because I have mine AND my friend’s (that was accidentally) left in my fridge, partly because I’ve become insanely addicted to cinnamon graham pretzels (yes, such a thing does exist) dipped in whipped cream cheese, and partly because of a little…pancake experimentation, but I’ll have more on that tomorrow! 😀

Speaking of experimentation: I taste-tested my homemade kombucha flavors the other day annnnnd…

Kombucha

All were winners except for two…can you guess which bottles those are? Note to self: in the future, PEEL limes before adding them otherwise bitter lime peel is ALL you taste! I was hoping a little chill in the fridge would help with the flavor, but unfortunately the lemon-lime and the strawberry-lime were poured out for all my fermented homies. On the flip side, the lavender turned out AMAZING!

I’m still obsessed with the Portugal. The Man album I downloaded over the weekend and while I didn’t think I had a favorite song, I realized the other day I’d been humming the tune to one of them all day long…

Listen. Love. And just TRY not to sway to that beat…though I will admit, the video is pretty trippy.

Oh and speaking of trippin’…guess WHO is coming to Nashville TOMORROW! And guess HOW many tickets are left! Why? Why did I have to see that? Seriously, just reach into my chest and pluck out my beating heart, why don’tcha?!

Jicama

Yeah, kinda like that…only, I’m sure my heart doesn’t look EXACCCCCTLY like a wrinkly old jicama! Um, how about I bought this bad boy like three…four? weeks ago and still have yet to do anything with it! Cast that judgmental look elsewhere, Laura! Actually, I’m thinking about painting a face on it and calling it Wilson…or whatever the Spanish equivalent to that would be. 😉

Nails

I went to the store for a few odds and ends last week and came home with something new. You guys know I’ve been having a TIME with my nails lately. Well how about I’ve been using this nail strengthener for two weeks annnnnnd? HELLO, I actually have nails!

I also picked up a new can of hairspray…an off brand, but one I like and buy on a regular basis…only instead of being the usual light mist that it is, I have a MEGA TORCH OF DEATH!! I tried cleaning the sprayer, shaking it up, and even went back to the store and exchanged it for another. I’m starting to wonder if I was still in the HBA section when I bought it or if I’d wandered over to guns and ammo… 😉

Game of Thrones

And speaking of violence…I finally made it to season THREE of Game of Thrones…and watched about half of it in one day! Please don’t ask me what I’m going to do when I finish it since I don’t have cable….if only I could buy channels al a carte!

Game of Thrones Selfie

Oh and for the record, I’m STILL a wimp!

Thinking-Out-Loud

Be sure to hop on over to Spoons and see what randomness is going on in everyone else’s brain this week! I’ll “see” you guys tomorrow with some pancakes and a SWEET deal to go with ’em!

What’s the last concert you went to?

Best thing you’ve eaten this week?

  1. I LOVE Game of Thrones!! Glad you’re enjoying it! Love the kombucha experimentation too… I experimented a bit with flavors in the beginning, but it was such a pain… & I decided I like the plain ‘ol black tea version the best. 😉
    Yolk porn – always a winner, yum!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      You know, I didn’t think I’d like the plain one, but I have to say that and the lavender are my favorites so far! And I’d rather stick with that, than have to pour 2-3 bottles down the drain!

  2. Aaahaha, I am such a wimp too! I need a Disney movie right after I see something scary.

    Haha, I love the ASS mark on the kombucha – I did that mistake with lemons in Ice Tea once – eek!!

  3. I’ve been seeing a lot of runny eggs on pasta around the blog world lately, but for some reason it just isn’t doing it for me. But, I guess I should try it before I knock it, huh!?!

  4. I haven’t jumped on the Game of Thrones bandwagon yet, mainly because we’re currently in the middle of about 4 other series. I tell ya, it’s stressful! I can’t handle one more storyline to follow. But after we get through some of those, I’m on board 100%.

    You’re intro really just made me want to eat some peeps. Aaah … sugar.

    I did eat some yummy food at an El Salvadorian (sp?) restaurant this week. Pupusas, tamales, and fried plantains … YUM!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha, girl, you crack me up! I’ll take one of everything from the El Salvadorian restaurant…but the peeps you can KEEP! >.< Lol

  5. Eric says:

    You’re going to cry at actions of season 3 finale!!

  6. Ok I just died, DIED, over that egg trick with leftover MC. I’ll be trying that ASAP! LOVE YOU MISS YOU COME VISIT ME!

  7. If you think the first half of GoT season 3 is violent, just wait till the second half…no spoilers here but hold onto your panties and prepare yourself for one serious mind-fuck!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha, I don’t think I could’ve said that better! Holy freaking SHIT! The next to the last episode! What the fuck, man?!?!

  8. The last concert I went to was the Gavin DeGraw concert that I skipped the ATL trip for 😉 totally awesome!

  9. I seriously cannot wait for you to finish watching season 3….which is all I’m gonna say about that because Davida expressed it pretty perfectly.
    Last concert: well….I’m going to one on Saturday!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      OMG, I FINISHED IT ON FRIDAY NIGHT!!! The last episode…ok. But the next to the last episode? WHAT THEEEEEEEEEE FAAAAAAAAA-UCK?!?!! I died.

  10. I am in love with these Thursday posts!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awww, thank you, Britt! I was actually starting to wonder if people were getting tired of my random ramblings…good to know I’m not the only one who looks forward to Thursdays! :)

  11. Dippy eggs are good on just about anything… but on mac and cheese? Seriously?? That is genius!!

  12. Ohhh season 3… What a freaking ride. ENJOY! 😀 And make fries with the jicama! It’s been a while since I’ve had one, but they’re all sorts of tasty. Aaaand now I’m craving fries. Or mac and cheese. Thanks 😛

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Laura keeps telling me to make fries too! I really just need to do it already…though I’m not so sure it’ll be with this one…he’s even MORE wrinkly than last week! Oops?

  13. I thought of you today because the best thing I ate was something in Switzerland called reclatte. Basically burnt cheese deliciousness served with those mini-onions, a gherkin, and potatoes. Fucking amazing.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Holy shit!! Dammit, why can’t you tag people in comments?!? Meghan and Arman need to see this! Lol

  14. Season 3 was sooo good. And season 4 is even better. Just you wait! 😉

  15. Now there’s a post title that just grabs you right by the crotch. 😉

    I’m thrilled you’re watching GoT, and I’m pretty sure that jicama turned on you. I hate it when veggies betray me. Fickle bastards.

    Now some randomness for you: I dig the song, just show up at the show and be a groupie, and I swear by my nail strengthener.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Just want you to know that I’m dying over your first statement! Lol! And yeah, I think ol’ jicama is gonna RIP with all the plantains I’ve bought in the last year or so…wanna know how many of THOSE I’ve cooked? ZERO…ZIP…NADA…I’ve failed as a food blogger! WAAAAAAH!

  16. On my birthday, my sister and I went to see Ben Kweller open up for Guster. It was a really fun show, but we were both exhausted and left halfway through the headlining act’s set! We love Ben Kweller, though—he’s kind of our “sister” thing, so no complaints!

  17. That, my friend, is a genius way to sub milk for leftover mac n cheese or any creamy style pasta….I NEED to give that a go. Which means, I’ll be making pasta to feed a family of 40 purely for the leftovers. But then again, leftover pasta cold doesn’t need the milk…but the added yolk.. okay i’m just rambling now.

    Actually eff that, let’s keep rambling- I’m just letting you know 1. I’m obsessed with peanut flour cereal. 2. I still chock on the clumps.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! As if I could love you ANY more! Cold pasta…yes! Cold pasta with yolk…you’re onto something! PEANUT FLOUR CEREAL ADDICTION…*falls out of chair* Now, just learn to time your breathing with your bites! Lol

  18. Love this song! I am working my way through season 1 of GOT but I am hoping to be caught up soon!

  19. Sarah Pie says:

    Now thats something I never would have thought to try with my mac and cheese! Your flavored kombuchas looked so pretty in the bottles, I’m glad at least most of them turned out. As for the GoT **spoilers** it’s just gonna get worse… sorry to have to say that.
