When people don’t realize it’s THEIR phone that’s ringing super loudly.
You don’t recognize what your ringtone is? Is that what we’re going with? I don’t understand you.

Fancy mac - Forever and ever amen.
Spicy stewed beef with creamy cheddar grits - So it took me a while to come to a conclusion, but after some thought and some tweaks, I would recommend this dish. One, it makes A LOTTA FOOD. She warned me, I semi-listened, but shit guys. 4 cups of grits? Dry? Yeah, go ahead and halve that even if you do the full batch of meat. Bone to pick two, the liquid amount is not real life. That much stock will not miraculously cook down in three hours with a lid….I ended up taking the lid off for the last 30 minutes and cooking it until it was the desired thickness. Three, she’s not fucking around in the title. It is SPICY. I like spicy, just know that this is exactly that. The creamy grits do a great job tempering the heat. All of that said, this reheats like a god damned dream and I would make it again, just less of it.
Why in the HELL is the new Kitchen Nightmares not on Hulu/On Demand????? It aired a week ago.
Please tell me where it’s hiding I must see the fuckery of Amy’s Baking Company Part 2 unfold and it’s butting up against my hatred of watching shows/movies on a not-tv-sized screen.

- Me: This is freaking me out. It's like the soundtrack to a movie where the person's dead and looking down on their loved ones but can't communicate with them.
- Micah: ........that's very specific.
Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.

Posole lasagna - Go make this. It’s a pain in the ass, but it’s enormous and worth it. Also time to plug grinding your own meat because it makes everything leaps and bounds better.
Jalapeno popper dip - Uh, delicious. I chopped up a couple of fresh jalapenos since I don’t know what they meant by “canned” ones…maybe pickled? Try not to think about the fact that it’s a pound of cream cheese and a pound of mayo.
Smitten kitchen party bread - Party bread is in the house tonighhhhhhht. There is no way to go wrong with scored bread doused in butter and stuffed with cheese. Michelle’s was phenomenal at book club, I made a kitchen sink version with horseradish cheddar and red pepper flakes as dinner last night.
