The base surrounding the pine in my yard yields a copious collection of Cicada Shells. This year I decided to have a little fun with them. These ended up being my favorites. 🙂

I shorted out my brand new iPod Touch, only took 6 days for it to stop working! I made an apt online with the Genius Bar at the Apple store, so after I got out of work I headed right on over. I was hoping a tech adviser could get it back to a working state or at least tell me what was going on. Dude was like”Yeah, I have no idea what’s wrong with it so we are just gonna trade it out for another new one.” I’m thinking thank god because I wasn’t really in the mood to go all crazy bitch on the poor guy. But in all seriousness what the F is going on!?! This is now my 4th iPod since September and it confirms my theory once again that it really is my personal electromagnetic field that causes them to stop working. I’m really not iPod compatible! 😦
I. Love. Food. No seriously, I do. Don’t let my size fool you I can eat like a horse, and more often than not I DO! I’ve mentioned it before but I will remind you again, there is a very good reason that my best friends are executive chefs. Some of their creations are panty dropping, literally! Every once in a while I can come up with a pretty killer creation. My friend Josh stole my Chicken Salad recipe and ran it as a special at one of his restaurants in Boston, did I get credit, NOOOOOO! But he did sell the shit out of it. 🙂
This creation is neither special, nor inventive, but it is easy peasy and damn good. My BFF made them recently for a girls night get-together so this is technically her recipe but with my twist. My additions are noted with an asterisk.
3/4 lb ground lean turkey
1 pkg Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice in the Spanish Style blend
1 pt jar canned organic tomatoes*
3 oz tomato paste* (she uses spaghetti sauce)
sour cream or cheddar cheese
Cook turkey in olive oil until browned. Heat rice and combine with tomato paste, canned tomatoes, chopped onion, parm and spices. (I don’t measure so just add to your own personal taste) Stuff inside hollowed peppers and bake with tops on at 350 for 50 minutes.
