bento_box: KFC Christmas (KFC Christmas)

Well, a few weeks ago on my mother’s birthday there was a swimming party. Yes, a 500 year old woman decided to have a pool party for her birthday – which would be great if it wasn’t a two hour drive in the heat. Add on top of that she had to stop and mull around a redneck’s garage sale for an hour (stank, I came out of it with allergies) then she wanted to eat – before a long car ride and a dip in the pool.

Okay, fine, her birthday and we do things her way. Then she decided on Country Kitchen – which was a bad idea and everyone but her knew it, but she decided that’s where she had to go.

Because it was cheap we all got the breakfast bar, and it tasted fine (so unhealthy, but I’m an egg fiend!). Low and behold, before the day was through, everyone had food poisoning. Food poisoning that lasted ages and everyone’s still slightly sick from the trip.

So, the moral of the story is my mother’s an idiot and Country Kitchen is disgusting. :P

Here’s something I haven’t had in a long, long time that I’d love to get my hands on for pot stickers – goat meat! In fact, I’ve only ever had it once or twice but it was fabulous!

Goat Leg MeatI’m actually reading the recipes on this website, all of which seem a bit on the complicated side (like Jerked Leg of Goat) and wondering if it’s something I could do? Some of the ingredients include ginger and dark brown sugar, it just sounds sweet, tangy and delicious. I’d love to try my hand at this, I wonder if it would be too hard to dress up goat meat for use in a bento box? I said pot stickers earlier, but this jerked leg of goat actually sounds like it would be great with rice if you cut it up into small pieces and filled out an empty niche in your bento box with it.

It would definitely be unique, plus goat is so good for you compared to other meats and is actually very low fat. The problem remains, as always, where do you buy goat meat? You can’t get it out here, though. I live in the middle of hog country and you’re lucky if you can get chicken or beef at a decent price, so until now I thought goat meat was out of the question because it was hard to come by out here. But the website I’m surfing right now, the one I’ve been talking about with all of these amazing goat recipes? It’s for a company called Gedalias that actually sells farm raised goat meat over the internet. It’s not expensive, they have a lot of different cuts including ground if you want to make burgers. It’s such a great idea! It would be a great gift for anyone you know who loves to cook and loves to try new things. If you’ve ordered from them, I’d love to hear about your experiences!

I’m absolutely crazy about seafood, and I don’t get it that often because it’s very expensive here. But there’s one treat I do get on occasion and that’s Tilapia, a tender and mildly sweet whitefish. It’s decently priced and incredibly tasty, but unfortunately the other treat I need to do any real cooking is time off – a treat which I rarely can afford.

The solution to this was simple, but it took me ages to figure it out – you can make many small fish fillets in the microwave! While I”m not an advocate of cooking just anything in the microwave (unless you know what you’re doing), this is one dish that comes out delicious and piping hot every time! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 Tilapia Fillets, 6-8oz each (frozen)
  • Lemon Pepper to taste
  • Accent! to taste. (Yes this IS commercial MSG, but I’m actually a big advocate of MSG awareness and use. If you’d rather not use it, a little salt or soy sauce will do!)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (one tablespoon for each fillet)
  • 2 slices of lemon (one for each fillet)

  • Prep: 1 minute
  • Cook: 4-6 minutes

Place your FROZEN tilapia fillet (one at a time, please) in a microwave safe dish with a cover – I place mine in a bowl and use plastic wrap, but I’m used to doing this and if you don’t watch the fish carefully you could end up with a melted plastic mess!

Liberally season both sides with your Lemon Pepper and Accent! then place a slice of lemon and portion of butter on top of the fillet. Now cover your fillet and place it in the microwave on high for 4-6 minutes (check after 5 minutes). Let stand for a full minute then re-plate. Great with salads, soups or by itself – makes a tasty sandwich, I hear!

We like to have this by itself as a midnight snack at our house, and Laota and I have been talking about having it with some wilted baby spinach and mashed sweet potatoes. If you try this, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Yep, that’s really all there is to this dish. It’s tasty, and pretty – dinner in 5 minutes!

Holy guacamole, it’s been a long time. I swear I didn’t mean to abandon this blog, in fact I’ve been ticked at myself constantly for not having any time for it. The holidays were rawr, hence my near Thanksgiving disappearance. It’s been insane! First the new work projects, then the dealing with my horrible, horrible mother and her horrible boss and his even more horrible The Gap wife.

On top of all that I had a very long bout of salmonella, or however you spell that, and when I wasn’t working I spent what little time I had off either on the john or vomiting, which technically is also on the john, and that’s when I could get out of bed. Laota and I both had to sit out the holidays because of that, but honestly it’s better than spending the holidays around my family, lol.

I’ve barely kept up with my other blog and I haven’t had time to see any new films except for Tropic Thunder so I’m sans new reviews, which always annoys me. I want to try this reviews month thing again but I doubt I’ll have time to do one every day until easily mid-June and by that time the good stuff ( Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Inside Liberty, The Spitehouse, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, etc. ) should be out in full swing and I’ll have some good new schtuff to watch.

I’ll still be keeping up with my normal reviews, products and films mostly, albeit slowly since work is a bitch these days. As if anybody gives three nuggets weither or not I blog, lol.

A friend of mine is being bombarded with spam by someone who’s disgusted by people who aren’t skinny. I won’t use her url because she doesn’t need any more hateful comments, but she said I could use her name so here goes.

Nan, wife of one of my best friends and best friend in her own right, wrote a blog post yesterday about how, even though she lost a lot of weight due to chemo, she put on about thirty pounds after she had her two boys. Nan’s always been a bit heavy, I wouldn’t call her fat but apparently everyone else would, and until the chemo she never could shed any weight.

Now, I know Nan, I have for fourteen years, she doesn’t over eat, she’s always been quite active (moreso now with kids to chase after) she just can’t seem to drop that weight, and any weight she manages to get rid of she packs right back on within months. Mostly, her blog subject was her depression at the fact that the strict diet and excercise routine the doctor put her on almost a year and a half ago hasn’t managed to really drop any weight for her. In fact, she plateaued after the loss of about ten lbs and quickly put it back on plus five.

And after her heartfelt blog, instead of kind words or even silence, this is just *one* of the awful comments she’s getting from a girl calling herself “healthee4jesus” and using 8 million different IP addresses:

“All I can say is wow. Fat people make all the excuses in the world for why their fat when really they just have to work out and eat healthy like everyone else in the whole world does and then they wouldn’t be such lard asses. There is no such thing as naturally fat! That’s a lie that fatties tell people to make them think they have to be fat so they don’t have to get of their fat asses and do something about it! It repulses me how lardos can sit there and stuff their faces with beer and soda and eat all the chips at a party and still find people to fuck them. Why don’t you just admit that you’re a fat lazy pig? Then we could all get on with our lives and stop caring about you. Just keep making excuses, honey.”

What the hell is wrong with this girl? First of all, grow a backbone and stand behind any convictions you may have with at least an email address so I can properly harass you for being a dildo. Secondly, wtf is your problem? Why pick out a post a few posts down on the page at a blog you’ve never been to before just so you can bitch about how you hate fat people? What the hell is up your ass?

On top of that, what in the hell kind of world did you grow up in where skinny people are automatically healthy? I’ve seen skinny girls who eat nothing but over do it on smoking, drinking or worse and skinny girls who eat everything but never gain a pound – granted those are extremes but there are a lot of them in the world. I’ve seen fat people who eat everything, too, and fat people who eat almost nothing, then there are people on both sides who eat normally. There’s no guaruantee that if you eat a certain way, you’ll be a certain size – it just doesn’t work that way, so why don’t you do something constructive with your time instead of stewing in stupid, pointless rage against people who don’t give two shits about you?

I am *so* tired, and I’ve had sleep so it can’t be that. I’m always tired, I wonder if it’s a fatigue disorder thingie or something? All I know is that it’s not helping me get my damn work done. I don’t know what you have to do in order to be well rested if it’s not sleeping, lol. At the moment, I’m even too tired to make dinner, and I was far too tired to excercise today. I don’t know what’s up with me.

Awhile ago I did a product review on a sample of sensitive toothpaste from Biotene, and as promised, I’ve used it steadily since then and it’s time to do my full review of the product.

biotene

I’ve had a few sensitive teeth on one side of my mouth for as long as I can remember, the pain for cold more than hot is an especially intense jolt and it drives me up the wall and makes me turn into a dragon if even mildly icy water even touches one of those teeth. I’ve always had to deal with that and until recently I’ve been a user of Sensodyne, which isn’t bad for this particular ailment. But, very recently, I got the opportunity to use Biotene instead and I’ve been really pleased with the results!

Biotene combines Potassium Nitrate, which is apparently the number one most effective ingredient for sensitivity protection with it’s patented Enzyme LP3 Complex™ and that keeps a lid on the harmful bacteria that cause gingivitis and oral infection, so it’s actually helping your gums heal while it fights cavitities AND tooth sensitivity! You can’t tell me that’s not cool, if you did I wouldn’t believe you, lol.

I’m a bit annoyed ( see Why We Hate Fat People by Laota ). I’ve read on two different blogs, which shall not be named here, that fat people just don’t care about their health, that they’re fat because they’re lazy pigs who do nothing but eat fast food five times a day and should get up off their fat asses once in awhile. One blog even went so far as to blame the parents of fat people, saying that they don’t care about their children’s health and let them eat nothing but McDonalds and candy. What the hell? How do you get to be that ignorant?

First of all, it’s kind of weird to automatically blame parents for a kids weight, especially since some weight problems are genetic – there’s a little girl who lives a few blocks from me who weighs twice what she should, her family is big, too, and I used to babysit for her when she was 3 or 4 and she was heavy then, she’s 9 now and still heavy – they have veggies, fruit, health food, soy milk and nothing really fattening in their kitchen and they take family walks, bike ride, swim – but they’re still overweight and get treated like they’re lazy or slobs. More than once I’ve had to walk the little girl home from school past a particular block in my neighborhood because there are a few little girls in her class who terrorize her and try and beat her up, they call her names and she can’t handle it. For what? Because they have a stupid, ignorant but very popular, predjudice.

Personally, I grew up chubby and I never overate, in fact people made me feel so fat that I excercised all the time and, being a stupid kid, ate almost nothing – I did it for years, and I stayed at a heavier-than-my-friends weight. As soon as my leg got frelled up and I couldn’t walk for a few months ( which is what happens when you don’t have health insurance ) I ballooned up, and I wasn’t eating any more, less or differently than I usually did. I never eat fast food, since I don’t have the money to do so and the nearest fast food place is 30 miles away, nearly, and I don’t have a working car so McD’s wasn’t the culprit, I just couldn’t get up and excercize 2 hours every day anymore.

See, I’m one of those people who have to work twice as hard as my peers and eat half the calories they were eating just to stay at ‘chubby’, which I eventually accepted and now, though I’m heavier than I was then, I still work out every day but I have no desire to eat my old standby of almost nothing. I know I won’t ever be thin, I’m OK with it, but it pisses me off that nobody else seems to be.

Actually, I’ve got a better self image now than I ever have even though now I’m past chubby, I’m downright fat ( and you can deal with it or bite me ), and I look at older pictures of myself before my accident and wonder why I let people tell me I was fat, lazy and ugly. I wasn’t, but I believed everything they said. That screwed with my head, badly, and spent a great portion of my life unable to look myself in the mirror on the off moments when I wasn’t scrutinizing how many pounds I may have lost or gained, I lived on a scale and perminantly chained to nothing but salads, tuna, water and yogurt and counting every calorie as if it were double in hopes of losing that extra five or six pounds. I wish I had a time machine, I wish I could go back and explain to myself that being fat doesn’t have to be a bad thing and that if I let other people control how I see myself then I’m giving them power over me. I hate that. I have a giant, swinging castration complex that won’t let me do that now, lol.

A big problem is that people who consider themselves healthy, who are many times stick skinny and underweight, terrorize overweight people just because they can get away with it. And they justify it by saying that they’re just trying to ‘help’ the person. How, by getting in their business and making them feel worthless? By following a classmate to school, saying you’re going to beat her up? For what? Her size? I know there are a few of that type reading this right now, and let me assure you that you aren’t helping. If someone’s overweight, weither or not it’s their fault, you calling them names and bullying them far into adult life just makes it harder for them to live a happy life.

If someone’s going to make an effort to lose weight because someone ( or many people ) have been putting them down, chances are they’re going to go on crash diets and use pills and supplements because it’s not being healthy that they care about. In fact they probably don’t even care if it kills them, they don’t care if they’re healthy or not, they just want to be thin – they just want you to stop. How is that helpful? Are you high? Is your life not fullfilling enough without torturing someone who obviously has enough to worry about?

While I’m a big advocate of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, I think it’s stupid and downright schoolyard to make someone else’s life a living hell just because they don’t look exactly like you. I may never be thin, in fact I know I won’t, but I’d rather like myself and look in the mirror wondering about my stupid hair or trying out a new color of lip gloss than terrified that I may be one pound fatter. Lighten up, people, being skinny doesn’t make you better than anyone else and, let’s face it, there are plenty of skinny people who are just as unhealthy as overweight people so why not get off our tit already? We only get one life, and we all want to enjoy it. When you terrorize someone for any reason, you’re in effect stealing some of their life that they’ll never get back, and if you do this and you’re not ashamed of yourself then YOU are the one who’s worthless.

The Itis!

Hoo, stuffed! I’m stuffed – I have the itis! That’s right, THE itis! I ate way too much, but I’m much more than a my-own-horn-tooter, I’m also a pretty damn good cook, if I do say so myself, lol. I made turkey, stuffing, my special “No Gravy Potato Mash” and a recipe I made up today on the fly, “Irish Cream Pumpkin Gems” which I made in my brand new silicon bakeware muffin pan ( I love it, it rules! ) with actual irish cream and sour cream folded into my pumpkin pie recipe ( try it, it makes it light and fluffy and it has a nice tang to it ), the only thing I can’t make for crap is I wish I could make rolls and I just never get them right – I may need a new recipe? Speaking of recipes, I’ll have the recipes for everything I’ve made on Hanamachi Lights in the next few days. :D

It’s possible that I’m going through a ‘thing’. Just a funk, and I don’t really know why. I’ve been able to keep my spirits up enough to stay in a state of Zen for the past few months, but it’s taken a lot of work to do it, and the sheer amount of reminders like, “No, it’s OK, you can handle this.” moments have taken a lot out of me. But it was working – I’ve been far from happy, mostly sad-ish, but not so bad as I’d have to be to consider myself regressing into depression. But lately, I’ve had this ick all the time. I’ve been quick to cry, and I never cry. I don’t get what’s up with me. Pew.

Ugh I feel like crap right now, I don’t even have it in me to blog about the pretty bento I had today. Wah! I may just have cake and say ‘screw it’ to productive posting, because screw it, that’s why, lol.

CROSS POSTED

Ack, freaking FREEZING! That space heater’s doing absolutely nothing for this place, at least it keeps Laota and I *almost* warm when we’re sleeping but I’m about ready to kick Cold’s ass, lol. I seriously do not need to get sick.

At least we’ve got cocoa and cider and the occasional warm rice, ugh I love rice. I may make some when I get done typing. Pew, I have to remember to take the garbage out in the freezing cold. More pew.

I made some pumpkin cookies, actually sugar cookies in the shape of pumpkins – so cute. The frosting is fantabulous, I decree that I’m the best frosting maker of all time, lol. Cookies and cocoa and a bigger butt here I come!

I’m about to say something odd, so please stay with me for a moment. Not all of my teeth are sensitive. In fact, I’m not sure if I qualify as having sensitive teeth because I only have a few that are, in fact if cold water touches them I can turn my own brain power into lightening and shoot it out of my fingertips. But most of my teeth are fine, but I use two toothpaste’s anyway. I use a sensitive toothpaste ( Sensodyne ) when I can afford it, which is rarely, and a green tea mint toothpaste for everyday, and Sensodyne really does work – to a point.

A few years back, before I started my occasional romance with Sensodyne, one tooth in particular was so sensitive that I couldn’t even chew on that side of my mouth, because if what I was eating was too hot it about killed me, too cold and it was worse. I wish I’d known then about Biotene Sensitive, a new product that claims to contain the number one sensitivity ingredient and number one dry mouth protection. When I say new, I really mean it’s new to me, apparently Biotene has been available, at least to the Dental and Medical professions for at least twenty years, since that’s how long they’ve been recommending it.

The company sent me a sample to try ( bigger than even a travel sized toothpaste, way bigger than I expected it to be ), and I can’t stop singing it’s praises.

Biotene Sensitive

I sampled Biotene today, and I have to admit I was impressed. You get the same feeling from Biotene – for those of you who use Sensodyne, I’m sure you know what I mean by that – that you get when you use Sensodyne, but Biotene isn’t just a sensitivity or dry mouth toothpaste like the others I’ve tried, it also helps to prevent canker sores, defends against bacteria, plaque and gingivitis and has Xylitol which prevents cavities. Has a toothpaste taste, too, and yes I know it’s weird saying that about a toothpaste, but I want you to use a sensitivity toothpaste and tell me what it tastes like, lol. I’ll comment later on, after a few days, on how well the sensitivity is going – so far it’s great but most sensitivity toothpastes I’ve tried take a few days to really show it’s colors, I hope it’s as good in the long run as it is right now. If it keeps this up, it gets the Faith Everyman Seal of Approval, lol.

I’m assuming you’ve read my ranting about how I can’t get my skin to ‘get right’. I’m not too worried about my face since, so long as I remember never to actually touch it with my hands ( lol ), almost never break out. But my PCOS keeps my skin guessing, especially on my neck, I can be clear-skinned for weeks then I’ll get attacked by zitties that I can’t shake no matter what I do, and where I live you either pay very high prices for things via the mail or you just do without treatments which is why I’ve been contemplating Proactiv, even if they do have Jessica Simpson in their ads, lol.

See, the fact that it was developed by dermatologists is what I’m really looking for, because I don’t have the ability to visit a doctor, let alone a dermatologist. Proactive also claims to be able to stop new blemishes before they start, which is what really makes the system seem sparkly to me and worth the money, because it’s the fear of them forming that’s my real problem. Woe is zitty me, lol.

So, I want chicken. No, that was not random. Okay, yes it was, but the lack of protein in my diet is driving me crazy, lol. Don’t get me wrong, rice, ramen, frozen veggies and tea have served me well, and they’re cheap which is the point of eating them for every meal, but at the same time they get really old after awhile and there comes a point in time when you’d all but murder someone who was holding a Subway sandwhich just to get at the roast beef, lol.

On top of this meat situation my throat is killing me and I don’t know if I’ve caught a cold or it’s allergies, and I’m really hoping it’s the latter because I can’t forsee being able to buy generic topcare dayquil anytime soon, and that’s really the only thing that works on me. I’d love it to death if people out here would wash their hands on occasion or, I don’t know, not cough right in a stranger’s face in the check out line at the grocery store, but apparently I don’t get that consideration.

Not like being able to breathe through my nose in Missouri is any big whoop, because at some point the state beefed and it’s been lingering in the air ever since. It never goes away, a mixture smell of ass and stupid, rotating scents like those air fresheners that have two scents that keep switching so you always notice the fragrance. Only it’s ass. Various shades of, even, and it never goes away.

I am doll parts, or more accurately, I am broken dollparts, thank you so very much. My ankle is fucking killing me, and I’m starting to think that I need to at least pretend to be a bit more careful when I, you know, get up or sit down which is how this happened.

I think I’ve twisted the bastard again – I was getting up from my computer chair to do some stretching and walk around during lunch a few days ago and I stepped on it just the wrongest way ever and it popped – so now it’s a swollen bitchhole and I can’t walk on it for shit. I need more moneycash, I need aspirin or ibuprofin or something, because my leg is just killing me and I need to be able to get around. Remind me to become a bounty hunter, lol. Here endith the rant.

You may remember that few weeks ago I talked a little about my own experiences with Alzheimer’s and the fact that it’s had a signifigant and moving effect on me – even though I was really only a bystander in the situation – and about the upcoming Memory Walk and World Alzheimer’s Day, but even if you can’t participate in the walk, and you can’t become a Team Captain, there are other ways for the socially responsible to donate time and one of those ways is the important task of fundraising through hosting a Purple Party.

The idea behind a Purple Party is to invite your friends and family to this party, you provide them with an evening out and a bit of Alzheimer’s education and ask them to donate the money they would have spent to go out and have dinner, go to the movies, ect. in hopes of not only raising money for the cause, but also raising awareness.

If you’d like to host a Purple Party and get involved, go to ActionAlz.org and register your party there. You’ll get your own page for your party, have the ability to email reminders to your guests and allow them to make donations online – and the best part is that all donations made during September will be matched dollar-for-dollar by The Harrah’s Foundation!

Wheee, wheee, wheee! Superfoods! I love superfoods, I’m an advocate of Spirulina if you can get your hands on it, and now there’s something called “Gâc”, an asian fruit I’ve never in my life heard of that is naturally rich in antioxidants, including but not limited to beta-carotene – yet another thing I absolutely love and adore, hence my obsession with teas, lol. R.G. Skin Revitalizer is, apparently, an all natural dietary supplement that makes good use of pure Gâc oil, extracted right from the fruit, that’s supposed to do wonders for your skin.

Gâc is packed with carotenoids ( plant pigments ) that protect plants from the damage inflicted by sunlight, so imagine what they can do for your skin. On top of that, Gâc boosts your skin’s cellular rejuvenation, which means younger looking, healthier skin for you.

The idea behind using an oil instead of a juice seems to be that the fat content of oil helps your body absorb the nutrients from the plant more thoroughly than if you’d just drunk the juice as-is, and since it’s all natural you don’t have to worry to excess about R.G. containing any harsh chemicals or drugs, plus the added bonus of Gâc is that it actually helps you to boost your immune system, and who doesn’t want that?

Granted, these are all claims – but if R.G. does half of what it says it does, then I want it already, lol.

If you’ve been paying attention, lately, I’m sure you’ve heard about Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, which is a nationwide charity walk to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association in their fight to find a cure for the horrible, crippling ailment.

I know pretty much everyone’s heard of this disease by now, but I think people assume it only deals with memory loss, and that it’s not as serious as it really is, but I’ve lived around or with more than one person who had advanced stages of it, including my best friend’s stepfather, and it’s not just a disease, it’s a severe and horrible type of dementia and the results of it’s onset are far from pretty. In fact, there was a point in time not too long before he passed on where I’d go over just to help her help him take a bath then put his PJs on, because he wanted to wear his Sunday suit all the time, and try and convince him it was time for bed. It’s, I don’t know, more than sad, horrifying is more like it.

There isn’t a walk near me, but I really hope you’ll find out more about this and please, if you are near a walk, sign up, team captain’s are needed but more than that, everyone is needed. I hope you’ll consider helping out, I wish I could join you.

Alzheimer's Association

I appreciate the comments and emails of concern for Nan and my poor shreds of sanity, lol. She’s better, I don’t even really know what’s going on yet but I know they’re keeping her for observation. She’s concious, talking and knows who’s President so it’s at least looking up, but they haven’t said anything to me yet about her baby so I haven’t the foggiest if it’s been affected negatively.

I’m hoping to get some time today to call Jon and touch base, he’s been super fragile and I don’t blame him. He’s been through a lot, too, and I think seeing his wife in that state after everything that’s happened was a shock to his system. Here’s hoping she’s home soon.
