I realized after a day of marinating that my post about abs may have offended some people I know and respect that DO have chisled abs. I meant no offense and was merely trying to make the rest of us feel more comfortable with our hidden abs. As I mentioned, everybody is different.
I noticed Andy Cohen (my wannabe Gay BFF) has these “jackholes” and “mazels” of the week. I thoguht I would try something similar. They are called “Oy’s” of the week. For those non-Jews or those unfamilar with yiddish terms, it means: “an exclamation of dismay or exasperation meaning ‘oh woe’ ” (thanks, wikipedia!). So here are my “Oy’s” for this week:
-Michaele Salahi: where do I begin? This white house crashing, D.C. housewives is making me wonder if I should ever bring children into this world. All I see is middle aged heidi & spencer. Just give these two a couple of years and she’ll have even more plastic surgery and he’ll morph into a crystal carrying yeti. And I dont care what she says, she has issues with food. Anorexia? I can’t diagnose, but lady, get an ensure or something! Just come out with it! I came out with it on the exact same network your show is on! Bravo tends to like bony girls (cough, rachel zoe).
-Beiber Memoir: I have yet to understand this whole “Beiber Fever” but whats more baffling is that this kid is set to chronicle his life in a memoir. Harper Collins will publish Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story. Catchy title, but I don’t know how much of a memoir you can write at the age of 16. I think they summed it up nicely on Chelsea Lately that you need to have pubic hair before you can write a memoir. Oy….
-Gisele Bundchen sat down with Bazaar to discuss her pregnancy and the birth of her son. Gisele is a big advocate of breastfeeding, and believes there should be a law that “mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.” She also said that breastfeeding really helped her keep her figure, so it sounds to me like she just doesn’t want new mothers to stay fat. She also claims that meditating “mentally and physically” prepared her for birth, adding, it ‘didn’t hurt in the slightest’ and that she “wasn’t expecting someone else to get the baby out of me.” I disagree with you Gisele! Someone else put it in there, let them get it out. Not enough oy for you!? Gisele claims that her baby, who isn’t even 7 months old, is potty-trained. Its a baby, not a puppy!
Alright and now for the stuff you’ve probably been waiting for…..Giveaway! La Tortilla factory will send you a VIP coupon for their products. They have every kind of tortilla under the sun! Gluten Free, corn, flour, low carb, low fat, and in so many flavors! They also carry a Sonoma line which I’ve spotted at Trader Joe’s. And if your market doesnt sell them, you can always order online here. Believe me, I’m not one to push products, but these are pretty darn tasty and they happen to be good for you.
So in honor of this giveaway, I made french toast tortilla strips!
in a bowl I mixed:
-1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg sub or 2 egg whites)
-splash of almond milk
I drenched the strips that I cut out of the tortilla in the mixture, let it “marinate” for about a minute and then cooked it in the pan. I served it with a cinnamon spiced omelet (its just eggs with some cinnamon and baking powder so it will puff up!) and berries!
I’ll probably do a lot of tortilla recipes this week cause they sent me a bunch.
To enter you can: leave me a comment telling me what your oy for the week (or month) OR what kind of tortilla you’d get from the La Tortilla line. You could do both and that would count as two entries. Ends next Monday, August 16th! Good luck!
