Chipotle, I Love You

If there was one place I would eat at weekly and never get sick of it, it’d be Chipotle. If you’re one of the unlucky people that follows me on twitter you know for the last few weeks I’ve had it … a lot. Last two weeks alone I’ve had it 3 times, and every time it was magical. What can I say? I LOVE Chipotle!

I used to be all about the burrito, but discovered how amazing (and less calories) the bowl is. I always get chicken, white rice, black beans, sour cream, cheese, and lettuce with guacamole and chips on the side. I love to put some guac on the chips and top it with the deliciousness in the bowl and it’s divine. I also love that you can order online or on your phone and skip ahead in line to pick up your order. I always feel like people are glaring at me and scowling in my general direction when I do that and saying under their breath “why didn’t I order online too?”. I don’t know about the Chipotle near you, but the one here is ALWAYS busy. And when I say busy I mean 15+ people in line. But, it adds up quickly. $9.75 each visit (although worth it since it lasts me two meals) it’s just not worth it all the time (at least to my wallet, my stomach totally think it’s worth it).

I’ve been hunting online for a tasty but close enough Chipotle copy cat chicken recipe, and I plan to try them at some point this month. Of course there will be photos and my final approval of how close the recipes are. Until then though, I’m totally fine with still ordering out :P



Addicted to Carbonara

Around this time last year I heard of a delicious pasta dish called carbonara, and all I could think why hadn’t I heard about it before!? It’s the perfect combination of bacon, pasta, and cheese all 3 of my favorite things. Since I made it the first time I’ve been making it every once in a while, although these last few weeks I’ve made it at least 3 times. It’s official I am addicted.

Pasta carbonara! One of the easiest and tastiest dishes :) #pasta #food #lunch #bacon #carbonara #yummy

Just look at it … how could you NOT be addicted to it!? I make it as “authentic” as possible and don’t use cream, although I have made a recipe that included cream which tasted fine but it’s not needed. The recipe I use just calls for 2 eggs and about 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese (although I use extra). I think carbonara will always be my go-to recipe when I was something quick and filling for lunch or dinner :)


Gaming, Geeky, Picture(s)

Gaming/Stream Setup

I’ve been into gaming since I was very little, but only got into PC gaming over the last 10 years or so. I feel like a good or at least decent gaming setup helps when it comes to gaming in itself or even with just streaming :D So I thought this week I’d show my current gaming and streaming setup!


Main view of my setup! I LOVE using 2 monitors.







Closer view of my mic (razer seiren) and keyboard (razer anansi)







Mouse (razer naga epic chroma), cloth mana bottle, hearts for stream donations, lipgloss, and other things.




Post-it notes for followers on stream, closer view of the hearts, and my xbox one controller.































Eventually I am hoping to get a 3rd monitor :)
