Tuesday’s Tidings for June 9, 2015

Tuesday's Tidings


1. Sunday night was the premier of season 11 of The Next Food Network Star and as always a very colorful array of characters. I can’t say I have a favorite yet, but I’ve enjoyed watching “Mama Sita”, Michelle, Rosa, and Jay. Jay reminds me a lot of Lenny, so if you watched last season you know what I mean.

2. I usually do not like waffles at all, but I’ve started buying these organic waffles from the health food section at our Fred Meyers grocery store and I’m addicted. Last week I tried the Multigrain and this week, Josh picked me up the Homestyle and they are just as good. I eat them with the smallest drizzle of real maple syrup and a happy helping of sliced strawberries and raspberries and it is the best breakfast ever!

3. You guys! I made the yummiest fake-out ice cream dish last night that was so yummy and without an ounce of guilt. It was kind of amazing!


1. So, WWDC was today (that’s Apple’s annual developer conference, for those of you with more important things to pay attention to), and, among other things, Apple announced a new service called Apple News. I laughed seriously hard when one of the journalists I follow on Twitter pointed out that it’s quite literally impossible to search the Internet for information on a service called “Apple News”…

2. While we were all basically dying of allergy attacks on Saturday and Sunday, we were able to grill up some awesome food! Saturday was grilled salsa chicken tacos with a pineapple salsa topping, and Sunday was a toasted sesame ginger salmon. We didn’t photograph either one, as they were both spur of the moment, but I can tell you they were both excellent recipes, and we’ll put a little spin on each for you sometime this summer!

3. So, childproof caps. You know, I think they’re great and everything. Quite necessary, in fact. However, when you have to use Vise-Grips to open your son’s allergy medicine…well, thank goodness for Vise-Grips, I suppose.
