Meatloaf, It's What's For Dinner






Individual ramekins of Meatloaf Goodness (mix: one row of crumbled saltines, 3 pounds of ground beef, ketchup, sauteed yellow and green pepper, sauteed vidalia onions and mushroom, shredded cheddar cheese, one egg)
with a side of Oven-roasted Veggies (bake red potatoes in olive oil and seasoning first then add "crunchy veggies and any fresh
herbs for final 25 minutes)
. Bake both for an hour on 375.


I added ketchup criss-crosses on top, you can skip or do something else.


PS: I also made a loaf of the metaloaf. But the individual ramekins are a nice touch for one-on-one meals :) Purrrrrrr

Always Delish

Now, if you know me or know enough about me, it's that I love love love to eat. Good sh*t though.

Yuca Bar CONSISTENTLY has good food and...good portions :). I had a yummy brunch today, with equally yummy company. Could a girl ask for anything more?!?!

If you go, start with the empanadas. Like, seriously.

You might see me there on any given day tho I warn you (especially when Sergio is working ) :)

Red and The Good Samaritan (Me)


1:17pm today. I'm walking up (down?) 14th Street. I see um a, lovely, creature in red at the corner of 14th and 1st.

Clearly lost and in a sea of spectators, s/he ("Red") was asking directions somewhere but noone was answering.

I'm nosy. And I'm ballsy. So I walked right up and asked "Where are you going?" Red answered "Con Edison" and I pointed east. Then I asked "Can I take a picture with you?"

And so, Red and I took a picture. I asked a woman walking by to take it. I am bossy. (and again, ballsy).
The woman who took the picture asked me afterwards if Red was famous. I said "Yes!"

Red, call me. I'll give you all $.08 in royalties I owe you on this one.

Don't Try This at Home!


I am the proud new owner of a Portable Frigidaire Dishwasher. Yes, they exist. Previously I had only heard of this urban myth-of-a-household helper.

I won't be taking this dishwasher anywhere despite it being "portable". But I will be rolling it to and 'fro between my sink and pantry (where it is stored) like it's my JOB!

I just rolled it out for the first time and am face with 6 friggin' manuals?! But only two are in English so I'm assuming I'm off the hook for the other four. Right?!?!

This should be interesting, I get to handle a hose and pipe. I love being single on days like these.

Snuggie You, Snuggie Me



I don't know if it was the Pats loss or the sudden arrival of colder evenings. I was walking through Kmart in the morning (yes, exciting life is mine) and I saw boxes upon boxes of Snuggies!

But I couldn't do it Because I've been making fun of the fleece f*ckers since I first saw one in person. But I secretly coveted one.

My girlfriends Bachul and Nicole came over to watch the Giants game. And...um, watch John Madden scare children just at the sight of him?!

Somehow we got online to order Snuggies. Nicole swore there was a buy one-get one deal going on and I believed her. I believe most things that she shares. So I bought six. Yes, I went online to buy two, one for me and one for Nicole. And I bought S I X.

It's the deals they kept offering me!!!

I am a sucker. But I will be a snuggied sucker. Booyah.

B & N: I will alert you when ur new addition arrives in the mail. 2-6 weeks?!?! Sigh...I want one now.

LAT: Living Apart Together

There's an Emily Ngo article in this morning's "amNY" on the subject
of couples staying together by living apart.

"Sociologists have a name for committed couples who live separately:
LAT."

And i just thought it was still called "commitment phobia." This is
truly rocket science.

Having been there and done that, I realize this isn't about thinking
differently on where to live but HOW.

Thoughts?

Appetizing Appetizer


Whether you call it "Korean pancake" or "pajun" or "boo chim gae" it was what was the start to a lovely dinner last evening.Thank you for devouring everything I placed before you Kobi and Gina!

Although a Korean dish, the greens in the pancake are called "Chinese chives" or Gao Choy* (stronger in taste than chives in the US).

The accompanying sauce is homemade and fairly simple. Soy, white vinegar, sugar and chopped scallion...

*The leaves are flat and cook quickly. Be sure to use within 3 days as they are particularly fragile little fuckers. But they taste oh so good...

Getting My Shit Together

I wish everyone would make it a priority with me. Getting your shit together is beneficial to you and everyone else.















After a week in Mexico (8/29 - 9/5), family drama (mostly caused by my brother's gf), Labor Day weekend in South Hampton, attack of the clingy new boytoy, and a social butterfly of a girlfriend staying with me this past week (9/5 - 9/14), my shit is very loose.

I need to get it together.

Here are some highlights from my family (plus my brother's gf) vacation:

HIGHS:

- Realizing I had taken over for my dad as the glue that holds our family together.
- Being one of the hottest things at that hotel, save for the jalapenos they laid into the salsa everyday. Holy burning booty hole the next day!
- Purchasing 3 new bikinis while there...and making 3 new friends too! Shout to Nina, Jos and Jo! I will never forget naked karaoke.

LOWS:

-Having a tiff with my brother's gf RIGHT before our trip...and harboring some hurt at the start of the trip.
- Having a tiff with my brother's gf on the SECOND TO LAST DAY of our trip...and now having to plot her fall from grace. Bleeding b*tches out slowly is what I do.


All in all, the staff at the hotel loved me, my boobs always looked great...












and I came home with a scandalous tan...















Oh, and my mom, my brother and I had an amazing time and only grew closer.



As for the rest, I'll deal with it my way.









I'm back kids, miss me?!
