1. What I’m Watching: I got hooked on the Bethenny show. I love her lack of a filter and no nonsense attitude. Some of the show’s topics surprise me for daytime television, but that just means I love it more. Do y’all watch her? Thoughts? Oh, and who watched the season premiere of Parks & Recreation last night? Ahhhh, it’s my fave.
2. What I’m Listening to: 365 Days by ZZ Ward. What a voice!
3. What I’m Eating: On Wednesday, Eric and I went to The Alley for a few games and had some snacks while we bowled. Bowling balls, meatballs, and rice balls. Because why not? Ok, ok, these are actually their rice fritters, but let’s all agree it’s more fun to call them balls. They’re like a southern version of arancini, which I’ve been obsessed with since having them in Italy. They’re full of polish sausage, bell peppers, green onions, and bacon with a cilantro crema. And the meatballs, another menu item I can never deny, were also really good. Plump, juicy…omg make me stop. Here they are being all cute topped with fresh mozzarella, parmesan reggiano, and marinara. Do you like how I write about food? “Being all cute” — yeah, I know. I’m working on that. But on a (semi) serious note, I’m headed back to The Alley next week to check out how all the machinery works and try some more of the Home Team Kitchen food. Sneak preview: And because I’m sure you really care, I won both games with “Dad.” 4. Recipes I’m Bookmarking: Simple Black Bean Burgers from the Edible Perspective 5. GIFs!!:
