I’ve always been a little cooky…
I was going through old pictures, and this one just happened to pop up. If I remember correctly, I was super jealous of the size of my roommates bra…I had never seen such wild and crazy prints on a bra before.
The training bra section in Macy’s only has neutral colors…
Then there was this one:
There is a story behind this…I’m pretty sure…
When I think of it, I’ll let you know.
My family has always known me as their source of ‘entertainment’, most of the time. Whether it be good or bad, you could always bet if you came to my house when I was younger you would either get a sweet innocent musical, or a broadway play.
When I was really young, my mom would film us doing random things, and I would always try to be the center of attention. Dancing, singing, run around screaming, what ever it took, I was there for your entertainment.
Then in highschool during a family get together, my dad wouldn’t let me go hang out with some friends because he didn’t know them very well. So I, being the dramatic diva that I was, screamed loudly, “Fine! I mean it’s not like I am going to go have SEX or anything!!”
My dad LOVED that one!
Unfortunately growing older, getting married, and moving away from people that know me, has been a little hard on me..(to say the least.) I couldn’t just run around singing ‘I will always love you,’ to my In-laws and new family, hoping they would applaud and throw roses.
And when trying to make friends, it’s hard for me not to drop down and bust a move, from the window…to the wall…
I had to take a step back and try and behave like an ‘adult’ instead of a performer just so I didn’t freak any body out and scare them away. I had to learn a new way to gain their love…
(And trust me, I can not reach that high note like Whitney Houstan can. I needed a new ploy..)
Call it a bribe…Call it a plead..
If I ever want someone to like me, I simply let them eat.
Whether it be dessert, come on over for dinner, let me bring a side dish, or how about 24 cupcakes…?
Want some food? Let’s be friends!
Ok, so maybe it doesn’t always work out that way.
Basically if they read my blog, and find out that I brought them something green, vegan, or healthy…most likely those people never call..
You know what I say to those people?
Here are some more delicious veggies…Forgive me Bestie?
Spice Seasoned Parsnip and Carrot fries w/ Kale
(Serves 2 as a side dish. You can definitely double, triple, etc. this recipe!)
1 large parsnip washed, peeled, and cut into fries
3-5 medium carrots washed, peeled, and cut into fries.
1 C. kale
1 TB fresh diced garlic, or 1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. garam masala
salt & pepper(desired amount)
1. In a saucepan, drizzle a TB or 2 in a pan. Add parsnip and carrots. Add garlic and spices and toss to coat. Cook over medium to low heat for about 15 or so minutes.
2. While this is cooking, using a food processor, process kale until finely chopped. You can also do this with a knife if you don’t have a food processor.
3. When the fries seem to be getting close to done, throw in kale and toss to coat. Sprinkle with some more salt and pepper if you want.
5. Cooke for a few minutes longer, and then it’s ready!!
If you make this for a crowd of people, don’ tell them there is kale in it. Most likely they will gag, and never touch your food again..
Not that it’s happened to me or anything.
If anything, plead for them to just take one bite…
And when they do they will profess their love for you…
Maybe even ask you to be their best friend even…
You never know?
