Sometimes it just isn’t worth it to continually shit in someone’s cornflakes.
Rather than take the wind out of the sails that is the conquerors’ favorite holidays, we will take just a few minutes of your time to say what WE are thankful for.
-We’re thankful that white people have not managed to fuck up Chadwick Boseman. -We’re thankful for President Barack Obama…
… no, stay with us here.  The saying is that a presidency isn’t a presidency until the elected individual has ONE legislative victory.  And in playing by those rules, the last previous president who DID have any remains president.  -We’re thankful for our wives…
and our other wives
…  and our OTHER wives -We’re thankful for Robert Sylvester Kelly -We’re thankful for then enlightenment that will allow Hollyweird to burn to the fuckingground.
-We’re thankful for Colin Kaepernick…
… we’re still cautiously wary of his lightskinndedness, though

See?  How hard was that?  In a world that hates the ankh-right, there’s a multitude o…

Phood Phun with Phlip... All Pies on Me

Image
Get it?
See, because it is a pot pie!  And 2Pac had that song that and album that--…  Never mind.
This was INITIALLY supposed to be a dessert post, but the logistics of a dessert escaped us because someone has started back couponing and the other is preparing for Mattel to release the new Hot Wheels lines this week.  Crap, I am off topic again.
Anyway.
Mimi came up with this one TOTALLY on the fly without my input.  It isn’t terribly difficult to make either.
Start with 2tbsp butter, 1 cup each of onions and carrots, 1/2 tbsp each salt/pepper, 1tbsp thyme and 1tbsp minced garlic:
(note: carrots are NOT considered low-carb, but for as little as this really is, you'll be fine)
Sauté the veggies and then add cooked chicken.  Out of convenience, we went with a rotisserie chicken, as we were both out of the house and Mimi was working at the last minute:

     Heat the chicken through and stir in 1 cup of chicken broth and ½ cup of heavy cream:
Heat until the sauce starts to thicken.  T…

We’re told that patience is virtuous…
I did the right thing when I’ve waited
     Keep conflict low, don’t make waves…
I don’t much debate it
     Say what you mean and mean what you say…
It’s on them if conflated
     Stay in my lane…
Easy, most can’t even relate it
     Plan hard and work harder…
Love what you’ve created
     Positivity and focus…
At times I feel insulated
     Respectability; stand by what you’re about…
Time spent doing right is never time wasted
     Well I’ve spent years expecting my turn…
My time is awaited
     Past outcomes speak to norms…
I think it’s all overrated
     I like to think I am working toward SOMETHING…
Perhaps it’s all just belated
     I could REALLY use some input…
On what has delayed it

     Why, all this time doing right…
am I the one still frustrated?

Go on a Money Diet

Image
As I try to be more responsible in my adulting, I find myself coming up with, or simply employing things I have heard, into my saving routine.  This one here is one I’ve previously used to ramp myself up to something nonessential that I may find myself wanting to throw cash at a ways down the road.  This is not a quick-and-fast savings scheme.  That said, don’t expect to necessarily get rich off of this.
I call it The Money Diet.
     I know that sounds like a silly-ass name, but it is simply what I came up with to call it when I first tried it about 3 years ago. It is really a simple thing to do in theory, once you work yourself up to it psychologically.  That last part though… 
     When you leave your house in the morning, things you should expect to have to spend money on should be paid for with cash.  When you are going to make this purchase, you basically plan not to pay exact change – especially for your first expenditure of the day – and know that you will be breaking a bill…
