Book #8: Monster's Chef by Jervay Tervalon


What can I say?   It held my interest, it was suspenseful but it also made me scrunch up my nose and become a little nauseated. 

 The story of sordid happenings at a “washed upped” rock star’s home and the chef he employees.  Definitely not what I thought it would be.  It took me forever to figure out who the author’s role model for Monster was.  I actually had to read a review of it and then I was like “Oh yea!”.  I never said I was quick people.

 I read the book in two days.  Easy read for sure.  Definitely an adult novel!

Have you read it?

What’s the last book you read?

Pinterest Chicken Dinner Win Y'all!

Who doesn't love Pinterest?
Who wastes a lot of time on Pinterest, pinning but not making?
Yes, I totally raised my hand!

So every now & then I get a hair in my craw & decide, I need to do, instead of pin.
That's just what I did with this great recipe that I pinned from Eat Cake for Dinner.

So super easy & such little ingredients.

Chicken Parm Crescents:


1 pkg. crescent rolls (8 per package)
4 breaded chicken tenders, baked (I used Weaver)
8 small slices Mozzarella Cheese
1 jar spaghetti sauce, warmed
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning (I used dried Italian dressing mix)

Cook chicken tenders according to package directions. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Unroll crescent rolls and separate into 8 triangles.  

Place a small slice of cheese on the wide end of each crescent. 

Cut each chicken tender in half and dip in spaghetti sauce; let excess sauce drip off.  Place each chicken tender half on top of the cheese and roll up each crescent.  It will be messy and might seem like it's not going to work, but it will.  Place each rolled up crescent onto a lightly greased baking sheet.

Example A:



Sprinkle garlic powder and Italian seasoning over the top of each crescent. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Serves 3-4.

I doubled the recipe for my crew & they loved it!

I present the finished product:


I'm probably the worse food photographer ever & it definitely isn't a pretty finished product in my opinion but it was darn good!  Darn good!!!

Have you ever cooked or made anything from Pinterest?
I'd love if you leave me a link to it.
Even leave me a link to your Pinterest page...I'd love to follow.  
Every Pinterest word in this blog post is linked to my page! LOL

Fool Me Once, Shame on You, Fool Me Twice, Shame on Me

It happened...again.
Remember this post...Oh No You Din't!
Yes, someone ate my food today as well.
I brought in a four pack of Bob Evans Breakfast Bakes.
I had one day before yesterday and one yesterday.

This morning, I said to my dept.  I'll be back, I'm going to make my breakfast sandwich.
So I strolled on into the kitchen, opened up the fridge & this is what I found:


Clearly I wrote my name all over the box.
Didn't matter.
Whoever it is, took the last two bakes & left me the empty box & the wrappers.

Not only did the person take my breakfast, he/she took a coworkers left over 1/2 eggplant sandwich, some burgers that were from McDonalds & today he/she took 20 chicken mcnuggets but was kind enough to leave the empty bag & the dipping sauces.  Considerate, no?

I've considered putting Visine in the food but my luck would be getting caught & going to jail.  I might be a big "b*tch" but I would end up being someone's "b*tch" in prison.  I'm delicate ya know.


So now I am going to have to bring my breakfast from home & keep at my desk until I am ready to eat it.

I just don't understand people.
How were people raised?
Who steals food?
All you have to do is ask, I would have given you one.

Have you been "stolen" from?
