Yes, I’m still here.
I wasn’t actually supposed to be here. Life’s funny, you know. One minute you’re laying in your boyfriend’s bed, crying while eating copious amounts of not-even-trying-to-be-healthy salad bathed in Ranch dressing and tearing into hunks of buttered bread whilst watching Harry Potter 3 because he’s at work with a deadline and you’re leaving the next morning…and the next minute you’re thinking, “Oh, fuck, that was a waste of emotional calories” as the guy at Orbitz confirms your new flight.
But hey, things happen and good opportunities come up. It would be foolish not to take them.
My advice: don’t begin crying and eating your feelings until you’re actually sure you’re getting on the plane.
Anyway! Now that I’m here for another week, it’s time for fulfilling more BHN.
Before I left for Houston, my blog friend Rachel Marlena sent me this seasoning for a little taste of her home state, Louisiana.
I was so excited to use it, I brought it with me all the way to Texas.
(Annnnnndddd….this is why I can’t pack light.)
She said it was good on “literally everything,” but for whatever reason, I felt like it would be best on fish. So I decided to make a repeat of my crispy fish sandwiches, but before I dipped the fish in the panko, I seasoned it generously with the Creole seasoning. Actually, I take that back. First, I started boozing.
Then I put on some green beans on the stove top in butter and ripped open a bag of Lays all-natural thick-cut potato chips and cooked the fish. And kept on boozing. (Hey, I was just celebrating the fact that I wasn’t crying!)
And then it was dinnertime!
Weeping because it’s delicious is a different type of crying while eating, one that is totally socially acceptable.
