Something Different

in All Posts

Something Different on TV:  Yay! The Walking Dead is back.  Any other Walking Dead fans out there?  Our household is positively obsessed, and we were so excited that it was back on last night.  However, I found the episode to be a little anti-climatic for a mid-season premiere.  Still great, though.

Zoooooombies.

 

Something Different to Read:  Thanks for all your classic book suggestions!  Your suggestions could fill my reading list for the next year.  I especially liked the Margaret Atwood endorsements; she’s one of my favorite writers.  As I said in the post, The Handmaid’s Tale is my #1 favorite book of all time, but I also really like Surfacing and Oryx and Crate.  However, I think my next book is going to be Fahrenheit 451, mostly because I can’t believe I haven’t read it (I don’t think I have, but you know how books are sometimes).

Something Different to Eat:  Curry Eggs!

These eggs are really easy to make but are so different than the normal scrambled eggs.  All you need is:

 

Big glob of nutritional yeast

Dash of curry

Dash of garlic salt

Splash of milk

 

Here is a picture of mine + the Husband’s eggs so you can see the proportion of the ingredients.  From the top and clockwise:  curry, garlic salt, milk, nutritional yeast.

Soooo delicious.  Different is good!

Have a great Monday!

    YES! Love Walking Dead…but HATE the commercials. We DVR’d it, so we’ll be watching it tonight. Can’t wait :)

    Hmm I have never had curried eggs. In the recipe when you say curry do you mean curry powder or curry paste?

    HUGE Walking Dead fans. We DVR’d it. Will need to get myself back into the right frame of mind to watch it after work one night this week. I LOVE it, but watch it from behind a pillow…

    Love The Walking Dead……not to get to nerdy on you, and I am NOT a comic book person but I started reading the comic book (the show is based off of it) just because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen. It’s no Ray Bradbury but it does the trick and my anticipation doesn’t kill me for 8 months of the year waiting:)

    When I clicked on the “What I’m reading now” link at the bottom of your page, where it shows the past entries, it took me to an ad for “Resurgence,” twice.

    :/

    Mmm- those eggs look delicious!

    I’ve never watched “Walking Dead” but after watching “shawn of the dead” I had zombie dreams all night, so I feel like I should probably stay away from it!

    I definitely thought the episode was a little on the boring side last night, but they built up for a lot of crazy stuff to come for the rest of this season! Love Walking Dead!

    curry eggs sound delicious! I keep hearing good things about Walking Dead. I’m in need of a new show so this might be the one.

    I thought Walking Dead was great last night! I think Rick is gonna go nuts.

    Definitely read F451. I’ve taught it a few times to my high school students and develop a deeper appreciation every time. The NEA did a “Big Read” of it several years ago and have a ton of really awesome resources to compliment your reading (I know, English teacher dork alert).

    So glad The Walking Dead is back!! Good to see crazy Rick is back, haha.

    My new obsession is Downton Abbey. I started watching season 1 on Sunday morning and couldn’t stop! Hopefully I’ll be all caught up by the end of the week.

      My roommate and I started Downton in January and I’m pretty sure we finished a season in less than a week. You can do it! I think I’m just one episode behind now. :) Though the episodes tend to get a little longer as each season progresses–which is fine by me. :)

    What a great idea to add nutritional yeast to the eggs! I’m new to using nutritional yeast and always looking for new ways to use it.

    Your breakfast looks delicious! I wish I had the energy for anything more than a meal bar before noon.

    Separately, the Walking Dead: I hate zombies (like, not even kidding, I have awful, almost real dreams about them–shamblers and runners alike), but I can’t stop looking when I catch a glimpse of the Walking Dead when my boyfriend is watching it.

    Ah, we should have talked about Walking Dead when you were over yesterday, I didn’t know you watched it! Greg and I are midway through season 2 on Netflix. I can’t say that I’m as hooked yet as I was with Breaking Bad at this point, but it’s pretty good, and I still wanna see happens next.

    I’ve seen a few episodes of Walking Dead, but I’m not a huge fan… Now, Once Upon a Time, on the other hand… I need to rewatch last night’s episode. Oops. I got the jist of it and was able to explain most of it to my roommate, but I need to give it my full attention this time.
    I’ve never been a huge fan of zombie/scary movies, but I saw Zombieland (I think that’s it, anyway) on Halloween and thought it was pretty great. I may have to see Warm Bodies at some point because it looks kind of hilarious.

    I also had a different breakfast today – polenta! I cooked it with 1/2 almond milk and 1/2 water and added pepper, salt, and nutritional yeast and topped it with a runny egg. It was so good! Definitely showing up in my rotation from now on.

    My husband and I are Walking Dead fans!!! I feel so lame being this excited, but we are really into our TV shows! Have you ever tried The Vampire Diaries? I am not a Twilight fan and I tell people to just get over the vampire fact (some people have told me, “Sorry, but I don’t ‘do’ vampires”), because otherwise it’s an AMAZING show. Great cast and story line. It’s our favorite show. :)

    If you liked Oryx and Crake you should read The Flood! Also, not distopian but Cat’s Eye and The Blind Assassin are really great!

    I recently reread Fahrenheit 451 and it was just as boring as I remember it being in high school. I am the worst at enjoying “classics.”

    Did you notice Hines Ward as one of the Zombies? http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/hines-ward-scores-cameo-walking-dead-zombie-article-1.1261260 He’s in the scene when Rick’s group is killing zoombies while escaping from Woodbury. So great to have the show back. Great egg recipe too. I never thought to use yeast in place of cheese. I bet it’s delicious.

    I’ll have to try eggs that way, they sound delicious. I’ve been a curry fiend lately! I’ve been loving it with tofu cooked in coconut oil, with a splash of Bragg’s Amino’s. Yum :)
