9. I’m looking forward to the release of my first ever Novel on Amazon

I got fired twice last year and the second one was super sketchy so instead of finding another job I’m following my dream of becoming a full time writer. I may fail but even if I do, I’ll at least know that I tried!

  1. Current food obsession: pineapple it’s one of the major things I’ve been reaching for lately.
  2. Current food you usually like but have gone off of: hmmm… nothing that I can think of. I have been forced to give up wine because I’m pregnant, but I truly miss it haha
  3. Current fave TV show? We’re in somewhat of a TV rut right now, so Peaky Blinders and Homeland are the only things we’re really into at the moment
  4. What song have you listened to the most this week? Midland’s “Burn Out”
  5. Current book you’re reading or last book you’ve read? The Alienist, my sister just loaned it to me and I just started it
  6. Are you in your spring clothes yet or still in winter gear? What are your ‘go to’ pieces? UGHHHHHHH it cannot make up its mind where I live. It was 83 on Friday and was sleeting this morning on my way into work. I’m still in between seasons wardrobe-rise. For work, I have to dress up and wear real clothes, but once I’m home and on the weekend I am in leggings and sweats. I’m almost 9wks now and I feel mushy, bloaty and just blah.
  7. Which folder have you been most active on recently on the Bee? Prob still TTC or Pregnancy, but I like the main board for the dramz
  8. Which wedding trend are you liking? I really like how a lot of couples are opting for smaller, more intimate weddings. It was nice when I was planning mine last year to find a lot of other brides doing a simple 30-40 person wedding.
  9. Name something you’re looking forward to. I’m going on a girls trip in June to Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg!
  10. Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, did you keep any/all of them? Care to share details? I honestly cannot remember making one, which is probably for the best because I damn sure would’ve broken it by now!

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  

1. Current food obsession Pan seared fish with roasted green beans and paremesan cheese. I’ve been using the McCormick’s roasted garlic seasoning blend and making sea bass, tilapia and salmon this way. So simple, EVOO in the pan, 3 minutes per side and done. Green beans are a similar deal, pop them in the oven with S&P, covered in grated parmesan. Simple and delicious.

2. Current food you usually like but have gone off of Chicken wings here too! When I first started keto I was hooked on BDubs paremesan garlic wings. It’s been awhile since I’ve had them.

3. Current fave TV show? I’m always rewatching oldies – Friends, Gilmore Girls, The Office and Parks and Rec are always in rotation. Lately I’ve been watching Jane the Virgin for something new. It’s kind of cheesey and D.H. hates it, lol

4. What song have you listened to the most this week? K. Flay 10th Avenue

5. Current book you’re reading or last book you’ve read? Dawkins River out of Eden. It’s older so a lot of the science is a bit out dated, but I’m actually learning some things/ways of thinking I hadn’t previously known/considered.

6. Are you in your spring clothes yet or still in winter gear? What are your ‘go to’ pieces? WINTER. It’s 4/16 and SNOWING TODAY. I guess it’s really January 106th.

7. Which folder have you been most active on recently on the Bee? Probably The Lounge. I haven’t been that active in the last week, I was in NYC for a conference.

8. Which wedding trend are you liking? Not having to plan a wedding lol

9. Name something you’re looking forward to.  My graduation party!

10. Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, did you keep any/all of them? Care to share details? Nope, I didn’t make any.

DrAtkins :  My vegan relative makes BBQ Pulled “pork” Jackfruit and she really likes that. I however just eat it raw. It has such a unique taste! Kind of like apple, banana, mango all together. Very similar to the flavor of Juicy Fruit gum.

It takes a lot of work to get the little pods out of it, but definitely do it all in one go and don’t try to do a portion at a time. (I did that once and it went bad SO fast compared to when all the pods are removed and stored)

Also, wear latex gloves and put down like parchment paper or something like that. The sap is VERY sticky. The first time I did it I felt like it took me forever to get the stickiness off of my hands and especially my counter top!

SunflowerGarden :  Interesting! I just cruised over to Pinterest and it seems like a popular vegan alternative to meat. There were recipes for BBQ pulled pork, tacos, chili, tons of stuff! But it sounds delicious raw! I may just pick one up and see what I can come up with. It looks super versatile. I’ve always been intimidated by them lol
