Tale of The Migraine Fairies.

Hello Y’all!

If you have ever had a migraine, you’ll be able to relate to this post.

Prodrome. Or….. What the Heck Is Happening? I don’t know about you, but this is where the crankiness and weirdness starts.  My inner monologue goes a little like this: “Oh, maybe I’ll watch this show. No, I don’t want to. Let’s watch the this. Fine, I’ll just watch my first choice. Why did I get so tired all of a sudden? Where is this stuffy nose coming from? Am I getting sick? Is it allergies? Daaang, I’ve gotta pee. Who’s squeezing and twisting my neck? Did I sleep wrong? Didn’t I just pee? Where did I put the tissues? I really don’t like this funk I’m in. Ohhhhhhh, crap, I know what’s about to happen… I don’t like where this is going…. I wan’t off this ride!!! I don’t want a visit from the Migraine Fairies!”

Migraine. Or… &*&%$* THIS!  Inner Monologue: “Hey, maybe it’ll just be a little headache. A glass of water and I’ll be good. Am I smelling the neighbor’s flowers? Did the sun get epically brighter today? Am I really smelling through the refrigerator doors? I’ve closed every shutter in this room and that one itty bitty shaft of light NEEDS TO DIE! Does the cat always breathe so loud and so much? IN AND OUT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IT DOESN’T STOP! Is this ice pick that was shoved through my temple into my eyeball ever gonna come out? THUMP THUMP THUMP! Eyeballs can’t thump outta yer skull, right? Dang, the side of my face feels weird. Crap, water isn’t gonna help, we are not having a simple headache. We have passed GO on this one, hang on to your hats and glasses, kids. Oh, sweet dear coffee and energy drink and a handful of ibuprofen get in my stomach, now. Don’t say stomach, I think I’m gonna hurl. Maybe, if I grind up this handful ibuprofen and snort it?  Dumb idea. Okay, I’ll just mix it in the energy drink. Seriously, who turned up the damn Sun? OMG, the cat box! It’s just the migraine and your over sensitive nose… It was changed last night. Okay, if I just crawl under the covers to the foot of the bed, I can hide from the other Migraine Fairies trying to get me.. I might just live.

This is where the Migraine Fairies assess your behavior.

They will gift you with one of two outcomes.

It’s a choose their own adventure. 

The Postdrome.. Or, Where Are We Going With This One?

Option A: I’m just gonna stay right here under the covers for the next few days and not come out. K? Thanks. Ciao.

Option B: Get up and do everything. Did someone slip me a Mickey? I haven’t felt like this is years! Do ALL the things. Clean ALL things.

Usually, it’s Option A. Occasionally, the Migraine Fairies take pity on you and grant you Option B, but usually not.. cuz Migraine Fairies are vindictive little, snotty Bishes!!

Stay Awesome!

Clare

Don’t Tell Him It’s Quiche, Call it Egg Pie.

IMG_5029

In 1982, a book called Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche was published. Even though it was a satrical look at the middle class of the 80’s, it has made a lasting impression on male eating habits.

I have a friend that told me he would not eat Quiche. So, I invited him over and told him we were having Egg Pie. I can’t remember what I put in it, but he ate his serving and asked for more.

Apparently, Real Mean Do Eat Egg Pie.

As I stated before that I don’t remember what I put in it… and it’s the truth. This is a recipe that once you learn the basic ratio of things, you can make it without thinking too much.

I use Egg Pie as a vehicle to use up bits and pieces of stuff in my fridge.

Sometimes, it’s more Italian, sometimes traditional Alsatian, sometimes New Mexican… Heck, I’ve even gone a American with a couple slices chopped up of bacon and hamburger and diced onions.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Egg Pie

5 eggs beaten

3 cups of cheese

1/2 cup milk

Salt, Pepper & Seasonings

Other Stuff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Let’s talk about the eggs. Easy. Just Eggs. 5 of them.

Now cheese. I’ve used all sorts. I’ve mixed up anything from Cheddar to Manchego. I use those little bits that are left in the cheese drawer. Last one I made had a couple of slices of swiss and provolone diced up, Manchego, Cheddar and Parmesan.

Milk. This doesn’t have to be straight milk. I’ve used 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup heavy cream. Also, 1/2 cup water and 3 tablespoons sour cream. As long as it equals about a 1/2 cup you are golden.

Salt, Pepper & Seasonings. This is to taste. If I’m making a Green Chile Cheese Egg Pie, I throw a few dashes of Green Tabasco Sauce in the mix. If it leans more Italian… oregano and/or basil.

Other Stuff. We’ve come to the fun part. See what’s in your fridge.

Here are some possible ideas for you to think about:

Bacon and Spinach and Onion

Green Chile and Cheese

Broccoli and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Caramelized Onions and Red Pepper

Tomato and Mushroom

Onions and Hamburger

Sauteed Zuchinni

Pepperoni, Green Peppers and Onion

Sausage and Whatever

(You’ll notice that onions play a role in this recipe. Eggs and Onions are BFF’s in this dish. You can also add garlic. I’ve used powdered version of each in a pinch, don’t tell my Mother.

Another thing you’ll notice.. no crust. My clan and I just like it better that way. If you want a crust, you do you, boo.)

Sauté ingredients until soft-ish and fully cooked. Let mixture cool before adding them to the beaten eggs and cheese mix.Don’t forget to salt and pepper to taste. Add in herbs if desired. Grease a pie or casserole dish. I’m a fan of the spray can stuff. Pour the eggy goodness in the baking dish.

Put it in the oven. Depending on your altitude and size of dish… check it in 35 minutes. It could be done. I’ve had Egg Pies take up to an hour.

When it’s has light golden brown tan and doesn’t jiggle. Take it out. (Those are totally my goals for 2016, BTW.)

Let it chillax on a rack or the the top of the stove until you are ready to eat.

It you want to add hot sauce, balsamic vinegar or any other sauciness…. go nerd.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Stay Awesome,

Clare

BoxyCharm December 2015 Unboxing

Hello My Fellow Goo Horders!

Are you ready for some December BoxyCharm?

It was a good month!

FullSizeRender 76

This month’s theme was very Roaring ’20, Jazz Age, Art Deco. I love it. There are 5 items this month with a retail value of ****. The newer black box really lends itself very well to the theme.

FullSizeRender 72

Here’s an overview of all the items.

FullSizeRender 75

Let start with Nelson J’s of Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Mask. This smells like coconutt-y summer happiness. Feels silky to the touch. It’s thinner in consistency to most deep conditioner. Maybe this is what hair masks are like? I just don’t know. I need to try to let it sit on my hair to see more benefits. When I left it on like regular condition I didn’t see much change.

FullSizeRender 73Second item is NCLA Treatments So Rich Cuticle Oil. This makes your fingers and cuticles soft like a babies bottom. This scent is slightly warm and spicy. It reminds of a dear friend. I’m a fan of just using argan oil, so I gave this to my mom. She loves it.

FullSizeRender 79Something for the face. Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Beauty Papers. This are some fancy oil blotting papers. I haven’t need any oil subsiding products while I have been in Albuquerque, NM.) One of the many reasons I love visiting.) These will be my go to when I get back to Southern California, though. I’ve been wanting to try Tatcha products… Soooo badly.

FullSizeRender 74Now for the to lip products. First up is Ofra’s Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Americano. I adore Ofra’s formula for liquid lipsticks. I have several.  It’s soft and mousey.  It doesn’t create the that dry nasty ring that some do. I questioned this color for me. I was quite surprised. It dries a little less terra cotta on me than I thought I would. I wish I could get my hands on ALL of their shades. If you haven’t tried a liquid lipstick, this is the one to go for.

FullSizeRender 77Second lip item is BellaPierre’s Gel Lip Liner in Cinnamon. This matches the Ofra Liquid Lipstick. It’s like they knew!! This lip liner is smooooooove. It’s perfect for the brownish lip trend that is currently all the rage. I like this with Americano, a lot! I also like it alone or with a touch of gloss.

There you go! All of December BoxyCharm goodies! Tell me what your favorites were.

If you need some entertain meant GO HERE! It’s my YouTube Channel.

Thank for reading.

Stay Awesome,

Clare
