Dapper: neat; trim; smart. February 17, 2010

Filed under: Channing Tatum,Dapper,Men — thesiscochick @ 12:42 am
This week’s “Dapper” man is Channing Tatum, need I say more? Channing was born in Alabama and moved to Mississippi as a small child. As a teenager he relocated to Florida. In high school Mr. Tatum was quite the athlete, receiving a scholarship to play football for Glenville State College in West Virginia. However, he turned down his scholarship. Later Channing began working as an exotic dancer under the name “Chan Crawford” in a local night club. He then moved to Miami where he was discovered by a talent scout. Tatum began his career as a fashion model  before beginning his acting career. For more information on Channing Tatum and his accomplishments you can visit his official Website. I’ve also included his twitter and facebook pages for further “cyber stalking” after the jump.

Fro Yo: What the cool kids call frozen yogurt. February 15, 2010

Filed under: Dessert,Fro Yo,Snack — thesiscochick @ 3:42 am

Have you noticed an increase in frozen yogurt shops in your area? In Oklahoma City I can think of a hand full right off the top of my head. Have you tried it yet? There’s a place about a mile away from my neighborhood called Pink Swirls. My first visit was a little awkward. There are huge cups and bowls at the door and then a line of different fro yo flavors all along the wall. I hesitated at first and then just went for it, not even knowing exactly what the rules were.

It’s a simple concept that I absolutely love! You pick a bowl or a cup (the cups are for smoothies) and you pick your fro yo flavor. You can mix and match the flavors or only get one. The composition really doesn’t matter because they charge you according to the weight of you fro yo masterpiece. Moving on to the toppings is almost overwhelming. Every kind of candy, nut, and fruit you can think of  at your dispense. They even have brownie, cookie, and cheese cake bites you can add. All in all I really like the whole fro yo experience. I hope it’s not just a fad!

I decided on the cheesecake flavored fro yo.
 I topped it with toasted almonds and coconut, Andes Mint pieces, and fresh strawberries!
Yummy!

Turkey Lurkey Doo and Turkey Lurkey Dap

Filed under: Adam Sandler,Recipes,Supper,The Thanksgiving Song,Turkey — thesiscochick @ 1:24 am


Turkey makes me think of Thanksgiving, turkey legs at the State Fair, and hunting. In the past year however, I have discovered that it’s a great staple in my weekly supper menu. It’s a great source of protein with only half the saturated fat of that in red meat! I have tried various ways to prepare it and some of my favorites don’t quite require a recipe. (See video after the jump to understand the title!)




Ground turkey is something I keep in the freezer at all times. Tonight, for example, I made spaghetti and meatballs. Everyone has their way of making thier favorite meatball and I’m no different. I start with 1 lb of ground turkey and usually add an egg (or two), some Italian breads crumbs, a little minced garlic, a dash or two of parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. I get it to the consistency most conducive for meatballs and plop them in a pan and bake at 375 degrees. (I have also switched to whole wheat pasta, it’s delicious!) Other uses are chili (I’ll post this recipe at another time.), meatloaf, tacos, stuffed green peppers, and so many more!

If you haven’t tried the marinated turkey tenderloins, they’re a must! I’ve tried the dijon mustard marinade and it was so easy. The directions are on the package and tenderloins will cost you around $6 at your local supermarket. Whip up a few sides and dinner is done! This is definitely one of the easiest things to make!

How does “Turkey for brekfast” make you feel? It made me feel weird, I figured it would taste like “diet food”. Much to my surprise I absolutely love turkey for breakfast! I have used the turkey bacon for normal bacon and eggs type of meals and also on a BLT. Now for the man’s favorite; the sausage links. My man loves sausage links and I bought some that are fully cooked. All he has to do in the morning is pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and he has hot sausage to go with his scrambled eggs.

As you can see there are so many turkey products in your local grocers’ freezers. Don’t be afraid of it!

Now, for your entertainment, i had to include the Thanksgiving Song by Adam Sandler. Any excuse to play the Thanksgiving Song is a good excuse to me!
