My 1970s dream…

My 2015 dream…

When I was growing up, my family would rent a cabin near Big Bear Lake that looked just like this — sliding glass door to the balcony and everything! (This is where the wild donkeys would come to the door and beg for apples) So my parents bought me this toy and I loved it!! The only thing missing was the sleeping bags. My cousin and I used to slide down the stairs in our sleeping bags, because, why not?

Pogo Ball.

We were just talking about this the other night! Ryan was disappointed that he never had one. I did have one, but was equally disappointed. I thought you could so some cool jumps but really the ball was under-inflated (so you could hold it with your feet on top) so it only went, like, 2 inches off the ground. It was barely fun and I never played with it.

The compassionate few

See why the Bible is only called the “good” book…

I have very little patience for people who own smartphones and complain about text messages coming in at weird hours. Your phone is SMART, ya idiot. Check the settings. Every major smartphone maker has a setting for you to reject, block, or simply mute incoming calls and messages. On my phone, I can even set a schedule, like, no texts or calls between 2am-6am or whatever. Which I have to do because I use my phone as an alarm clock, so I have it bed side and the volume is on high.

Lazy Meal week has started!

We are lazy eaters and I do not enjoy cooking, so I really like crock pot meals where you just throw the stuff in there and leave it alone (no pre-cooking or browning or chopping or whatever). Since neither Ryan nor myself really cares about what we eat, as long as it’s quick and easy, we are happy to eat the same thing all day, every day. 

My current favorite is chicken tacos/tortilla soup because it goes pretty far and can be bulked up to go further (adding more veggies, etc.). Also, it’s pretty cheap. We splurge on salsa from our fave restaurant, so that costs $2.95 for a 32oz container. Chicken can usually be bought for around $6/lb and stew meat is usually even less. I think the last time we got it, it was something around $2/lb. We also buy our favorite hand-made tortillas from Tortillaland (available in your grocery store’s refrigerated section) which are more expensive than standard tortillas. But still, we can create this meal for around $15 (including cheese, tomatoes, avocados, etc.) and it serves at least 3 full meals, usually a bit more (if we have only one taco for lunch, etc.).

Approx. 1 lb - chicken breasts, tenders, or thighs - meat can be frozen or fresh. Or 1 lb beef stew meat also works out great.

Approx. 1-1.5 cup salsa - any kind will do. We prefer one from our local Mexican food restaurant, but honestly jar salsa is fine here as long as you pick one that you like the taste of.

Add meat to crock pot and add salsa. Leave alone for a couple of hours, then go back and when it easily shreds apart, it’s done. If you need to cook it faster, cut your meat into smaller pieces. Our crock pot will cook 1 lb of chicken in about an hour on high but we like to leave it on low for at least 2 hours to let it absorb the flavors. If you cook it on low/warm you can leave it to cook all day/all night. You think you’d need more liquid but you don’t, honestly! If you use whole chicken parts (thighs, etc.) the bones will literally fall right off. Just remove before you serve.

Warm tortillas and serve chicken with your choice of garnishes (we keep it simple: cheese, more salsa, and fresh tomatoes). 

Day Two

Make leftovers into more tacos or burritos!

Day Three and beyond

If you’re like us, you’ve eaten about 6-8 tacos from this one batch already and you’re probably low on meat. So what we do is add 1 qt chicken broth and let simmer. More veggies can be added to fill this out, if you like. Let simmer until warmed through. Garnish with cheese and chips.

At the Cal-Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe, the Nevada/California state line actually runs through the swimming pool.
Fun fact:  Cal-Neva was once co-owned by Frank Sinatra.

This is cool, you can tell people you swam from Nevada to California

or that your penis reaches all the way to California
