Day 56

Today is Day 56 of my bookish drought.

What I’ve been up to…

TV, TV, and more TV

Thanks to a binge watch last weekend, I am now caught up on Z Nation! It’s no Walking Dead but I am liking it. For those of you who watch it, I thought the Liberty Bell was cool and how the ‘family’ survives was….interesting. I really wish they would have expanded on the tornado scene because hello, I love Sharknado!

I’ve seen a bunch of movies in the last week and a half. The total would be higher but our internet was down for a day so I couldn’t hop on Netflix.

Corpse Bride -Pabkins, that one was just for you :)
Quarantine and Quarantine 2 – The first was a little better but both were decent z movies.
My Babysitter is a Vampire – come on…who doesn’t love teen movies once in a while!
40 Days & Nights / Age of Dinosaurs / High Lane – None of these were great movies but I didn’t regret watching them or anything like that.
Finding Normal – I guess I was in the mood for a romance.

Have you notice that Christmas movies are on?? I love Christmas movies but I don’t think I’m quite ready for that yet. I’ll wait until Thanksgiving week before diving into that pond.

I almost forgot to add these...

I saw on twitter that Sharknado 3 will be hitting D.C.!

Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead releases on DVD December 9th!! I fully expect it to be awesomely ridiculous!


I’ve slowed down just a little with my cooking but I’m still at it. Some recipes I tried and recommend are MexicanChicken, Chicken Roll ups, Garlic Parmesan Chicken. I’ve had the Garlic Parmesan Chicken recipe for a few years and have no clue where I found it so I’ll put the recipe at the end of this post.

Does anyone have any Thanksgiving dessert recommendations? I’m going to two Turkey Day meals (Yay!) and I want to make some desserts to take. I’d like to stay away from the typical pumpkin/apple pie desserts.


I really think I have a shopping problem right now, lol. On the plus side, I now have a cool pair of mid-calf combat type boots, a pretty teal purse, a couple of new scarves, a pair of black converse with pink laces on the way, and a few Christmas/Birthday pressies bought. I know, I know, you probably don’t want to hear about Christmas shopping any more than I do but if I see things on sale I figure I might as well scoop them up and save money in the long run.

I did one drawing a couple weeks ago. She’s not great and she’s well….armless but they all can’t be winners, lol.

Check out Tabitha’s weekly Art It Up feature to see much cooler drawings!

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Recipe (as mentioned above)

Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Prep 20 minutes
Cook time 35 minutes
4 servings


2 tsp crushed garlic (I used 4 minced cloves)
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c dry bread crumbs
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves.


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
2. Warm garlic and olive oil to blend flavors. In separate dish, combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Dip chicken breasts in olive oil and garlic mixture, then into bread crumb mixture. Place in shallow baking dish.
3. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.


  1. We saw Big Hero 6 the other day and it was really cute. Haven't watched too much on tv lately.

    Loved Corpse Bride!

    1. That's the one with the big balloon man right? It looks like it could be kind of funny.

  2. I did notice that Christmas movies were on! Yay!
    I'll have to let you know when the hubby is not home so we can watch some.

    Love the drawing, I have yet to try one... but I will, someday.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
