And you might be asking what in the fug do these 3 things have in common? Why me of course, cause this is my house. So come in and sit right down and let me tell ya a story bout a man named Tex. Because I'm guessing you all would like me to lead with the porn star story right? Yeah, that's what I thought you hoebagels. Well in case you missed it on account of the birth of the 6 pound 7 ounce baby Jesus and all,  this week I have already been hit upon by an inmate and you can read about that here. I am proud of the fact that my appeal crosses all race and socioeconomic lines. I am pretty much the  Dali Llama of the online dating world... everybody loves me. But last night much to my shock and awe I had a first time, and it's been a hot minute since I had one of those. Was chatting with a lovely gentleman last night who proceeded to tell me he had 2 names... Trey and Tex... this should have been a clue but here is basically how that unfolded...


Poor Tex... it seems that every time he tells a lady he works in the adult entertainment industry she promptly skee-daddles. Shocker!!! But wait there's more... he's also... wait for it..... Married!!!! Somebody stop me... I am that gooood!!! Technically legally separated but that's splitting hairs right? I asked him some questions and we chatted a bit more cause frankly, I was curious, and this makes for great bloggy material. Oh, and I figure since these are free dating sites that anyone on the planet can  access it really doesn't matter if I post the actual pictures on their profiles. Who knows if they are even real anyway! So hope you enjoyed the latest installment of  Amy's Adventures In Online Dating. Ur welcome. 

In other news I actually have a real date tonight with a normal person. He is age appropriate, good looking, employed and an FSU fan. So why am I not excited??? Really, our conversations have been nice, perfectly fine. He seems like a good guy and in my mind I'm already thinking a little boring. Clearly I have issues. But I'm going. I haven't been on a date since last summer because frankly I was feeling like I was wasting my time over drinks and appetizers with guys I didn't care for when I could have been home on my sofa with my kids, dog and wine or out with the girls. But it's time for me to get back out there so we are meeting at Tin Lizzy's so at the very least I will get a couple of yummy tacos out of the deal. And if you live in Atlanta and you have never eaten there... just go now... it is awesome!


And last but not least, time to get back on the healthy eating bandwagon and maybe fill up that empty tab up there that says "Fitness" either that or I will have Hubby Jack replace it with a tab that says
"Total Fraud Happy Fatty".
Naw... not really. Any way I made this awesome Crunchy Thai Quinoa Salad last night and it is omg sooo good, and healthy, so make it!

Here is what you need....

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing. Guest post by Laurie McNamara of Simply Scratch, recipe submitted by TK member Monique of Ambitious Kitchen.

Preparation Instructions


To cook quinoa: Rinse quinoa with cold water in a mesh strainer. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add in quinoa and bring mixture to a boil. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa has absorbed all of the water.
Remove pan from heat and fluff quinoa with fork. Place in a large bowl and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. You should have a little over 2 cups of quinoa.
To make dressing: Add peanut butter and honey or agave into a medium-sized microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds. Add in ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, and both sesame and olive oil and stir until mixture is smooth and creamy. If you want a thinner dressing, simply stir in a teaspoon or two of water or olive oil.
Add as much or as little dressing as you’d like to the quinoa. I always start out with a little bit of dressing and usually add more to suit my taste preferences. Alternatively you can save the dressing for later and add when you are ready to eat; however the flavors of the dressing usually soak into the salad so I love adding it to the quinoa first.
Next fold the red pepper, onion, cabbage, carrots, and cilantro into the quinoa. Garnish with cashews and green onions. Serve chilled or at room temperature with lime wedges if desired.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • ¾ cups Uncooked Quinoa
  •  Red Bell Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed, Then Diced
  • ½  Red Onion, Diced
  • 1 cup Shredded Red Cabbage
  • 1 cup Shredded Carrots
  • ½ cups Chopped Cilantro
  • ½ cups Cashew Halves Or Peanuts, (honey Roasted Is Good)
  • ¼ cups Diced Green Onions
  • Fresh Lime, For A Bit Of Tang
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • ¼ cups All Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey (use Agave If Vegan)
  • 2 teaspoons Freshly Grated Ginger
  • 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce, Gluten-free If Desired
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • Water To Thin, If Necessary
 And here is what you end up with....

Doesn't that just scream Eat Me?!?!?

Cheers and have a great weekend, and don't talk to porn stars:)
