Monday Musings + Mahi Mahi Tacos (revisited)

1. Ok, Earth Balance… this is pretty tasty:

But you’re not the first one to combine coconut and peanut butter:

(I’m probably not either).

I really have to make that Vanilla Bean Coconut Peanut Butter again!




2. Yes, I’m reading this book.

Chances are you have read it, are currently reading it, or have heard about it.

After being put at spot 368 on the wait-list at the library, I went ahead and purchased the trilogy – the first book of which I’m about half way through.

Now, let’s just lay it all out on the table, shall we? The writing is amateurish, the character development is practically nonexistent, and the plot is almost laughably unrealistic. However. Just like the Twilight series, this trilogy will pull you in and you’ll have no choice but to read all three books back-to-back. And I hear there is a movie deal in the works. I’m still trying to settle on the perfect actor to play Christian Grey…




3. I’m really glad I read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series because I’d be totally lost in the HBO adaptation (Game of Thrones) without having read the books.

In any given episode, you’re following at least 4 different plot lines each featuring about 5-10 characters. If I had it my way, I’d spend an hour every Sunday night watching Jon Snow take on the evils beyond the wall, but alas there’s a whole lot more going on in Westeros.




4. Cinco de Mayo is this coming weekend, and to celebrate I’m sharing my recipe for Mahi Mahi Tacos over at The Back Burner.

If you missed them the first time around, check ’em out!

  1. I just saw the new EB coconut peanut spread and passed on it but I think I may need to go back for it. I was afraid it would be overly sweet. I’m not really into the overly sweet nut butters.

  2. Oops! I don’t like peanut butter. But I really love the tacos. BTW I was on the same waiting list for that book. I was more lucky than you to be on the 30th place.

  3. I just heard about this book this weekend because everyone in the airport was either reading that or the Hungar Games. My brother was jooking that there was going to be a movie…I guess there is!

    I am just getting into Game of Thrones. It is confusing but entertaining for sure. I was thinking about the books…good to hear they are good!

  4. I completely agree with you I could watch Jon Snow all day! I read an interview with Richard Madden who plays Robb Stark and he said that Jon and Robb should have their own spin off show, I could watch that all day every day ; )
