Easy Sunday Morning Breakfast

Sundays are my favorite morning. This is usually when I am able to take a moment from whatever excitement I had the night before, pour myself a nice cup of tea, and take my time getting breakfast. This weekend, some of us in the house were recovering from a lot of fun from the night before. This easy breakfast, with Ozery morning rounds, filled the bill of an easy, delicious, and even healthy breakfast fast to make up for the night before.

With the Ozery morning rounds, you can either get the snack size, that I especially like since they are only 70 calories each, or the regular sized morning rounds. These are about the size of an english muffin. I like to cut mine in half and toast them, but you can also warm them in the oven, or even use them as the base for french toast (OMG good).

A Party Treat Fit For A Prince

Happy Birthday to the adorable Prince George! Somehow this little prince has taken hold of the celebrity world even across the Pond to America. I would venture to say it is his parents more than any of his major accomplishments, you know, like standing and drooling all over toys.

If adorable Prince George’s royal parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William wanted to stop by my place this evening, I would be sure to whip up some treats fit for a prince or two. I think they would get a kick out of my laid back Southern California lifestyle.

While George’s little mouth may not be able to handle popcorn that well (I don’t know, can little toddlers eat popcorn?) this spicy chocolate covered popcorn recipe will be sure to please the grown ups in the play group.

Ingredients:
1 bag buttered popcorn
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp. Colman’s Mustard
1 tbsp. light Karo Syrup

Directions:
Pop the popcorn according to package directions. In a small saucepan add the chocolate chips and heat on low. Add the milk and stir constantly until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Add the mustard and the Karo syrup. Mix well. Dump the popcorn into a bowl and pour chocolate mixture over popcorn. Mix well and let it sit till it cools. Then serve.

Sometimes a girl just has to get up and go. This weekend, I will be picking up and heading to Palm Springs, so posting on the site may be a little light. You CAN follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and twitter to see what I am getting in to.

I post more on Instagram when I do a road trip than I do on Facebook, just in case you were wondering. This should be a lot of fun!

Sriracha Is No Longer a Public Nuisance In SoCal!

Sriracha hot sauce lovers, your dark days are over. The city of Irwindale, California no longer views the factory that makes the precious peppered condiment a public nuisance! WooHoo

RELATED: SRIRACHA Plant Declared A Public Nuisance, Will It Close?

City officials on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit it filed against Huy Fong Foods over the fumes and dropped its declaration of the factory as a public nuisance, reports The San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Huy Fong CEO David Tran said he has modified a ventilation system at the factory and gave written assurances to the city that the company was addressing residents’ odor complaints, the Tribune reports. [USA Today]

Residents of Irwindale were saying that the factory was putting out a foul ordor that was making it hard for them to breathe and making their eyes burn. Uh, yeah! It is a factory full of hot peppers being cooked.

This comes as a great relief to many a hipster and others who enjoy Sriracha sauce on everything from ramen noodles to chic Sriracha cocktails (yeah I went there).

David Tran did say, though, that even with the reopening of the California plant, he is looking to expand into other states. Maybe Texas? They did try to win him over in the middle of all of this. I wonder if Governor Perry won out after all.
