FOODIE FAVORITES

tumblr_nolu7qtlMk1tzjw8ao1_500I’ve literally spent this entire day in bed. Being that my life is a series of unfortunate events, I was unlucky enough to get sick this week. Nothing but NyQuil and OJ for ya girl. I’ve been wanting to write all day! I’ve surprisingly never done a favorite’s post on here and I’m honestly such a fat girl at heart. I’m surprised I’m not eating Nutella out of the jar while typing this. If you think I have you on my mind, I’m more than likely thinking about wings. Here’s what I’ve been obsessing over lately. #YUMMMMMM

If you know me at all, you know I’m such a foodie. I eat a shit ton and I just really love good food! Lately, I’ve been blowing the bank at WingStop.. which is really bad, but it’s just too bomb. The staff already recognizes me and knows my order by heart. I know, I gotta chill. As much as Rick Ross promotes the chain, I made it a priority to try it out & see what all the hype is about. The best/worst thing I could’ve done. 10 count Louisiana Rub. (bone in, all flats) Take my word, guys. No Lemon Pepper, sorry Rozay.

I’m such a caffeine freak, too. If you follow me on Snapchat, you already know I have a very serious Starbucks addiction. I’m there every single day, sometimes twice a day. My go-to drink is a Venti Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte w/ no whip. It already comes with 3 shots of expresso, so by 12 PM I’m 100% running on caffeine & anxiety alone. Some days I’m feeling kinda froggy and order an extra shot of expresso. That’s strictly for those zombie mornings. I’m also having SUCH Donut Delight withdrawals since I’m no longer in CT. *sigh* The first step is admitting you have a problem. 

I love beer! So fattening but so good. Blue Moon is the best obviously, that isn’t even up for debate. Right now, they do have the seasonal Harvest Pumpkin Ale. Especially on tap, it’s a nice change from the usual Belgium White. Pick up a 6-pack and thank me later.

I occasionally chef it up! Especially since I’m no longer living at home, I don’t have as many home cooked meals as I’m used to. I have a weird obsession with going grocery shopping, don’t ask. Here are some of my favorite meals to make:

  • Tilapia, Shrimp, Grilled Chicken (sometimes w/ BBQ Sauce), or yum.. if you marinate grilled chicken in cajun sauce/dressing and THEN grill it. So bomb. I’m suddenly so obsessed with spicy food. I was put on to Sriracha sauce and it’s been lit ever since. Shrimp cooked in Sriracha sauce >>>>>>>> My mouth is literally watering thinking about it. It’s like I’m pregnant and I’m constantly craving spicy foods. (knock on wood, yikes) Buffalo sauce on anything is just.. ugh. Bomb.
  • I love pasta, especially when there’s ground turkey in the sauce. Sauté the onions in oil, add the ground turkey, and then mix in the sauce once it’s done cooking. Crushed Red Pepper has become my new best friend, especially with pasta. Whether it’s shells, spaghetti, or rotini; these meals are so easy & fast to make. Mmmmm pasta w/ pesto is also so good, too! Adding chicken or shrimp is always a good idea if you’re not too fond of ground turkey.
  • I’m absolutely in love with guacamole! I used to despise it, I was strictly a salsa girl, but I honestly can’t get enough.  I’ve been wanting to make my own, following a homemade recipe. First of all, avocados are so good for you.. they have such high nutrient value! Back home, I would get avocado and cream cheese on a toasted everything bagel (cut in half because I’m a child.) Maybe I’ll get around to making my own guacamole this week. I’ll let you guys know how it turns out!

I can write about food for hours on end.. it’s actually disgusting. It’s definitely Taco Tuesday but I’m thinking this Chipotle move is probably the best option right now. What’re your favorite things to munch on at the moment?
