Apparently I’m not done yet with making fun of Zesty episode 16. Don’t tell me the ‘Sorey and Mikleo totally telepathy call each other for spontaneous shopping’ joke hasn’t been made yet.


Poor Rose. Protect Rose. She never signed up for this.
Come along on the Shepherd’s journey, he said. It’s gonna be fun he said. What could go wrong he said.

Bonus: I love all the Rose-Sorey not-bonding moments from the game. Friendship is beautiful

“The Professor and the Bar Owner”

For @oqpromptparty 175. s7 setting, cursed Robin (with another name), Seattle university professor, goes out for a drink after a rough day at a bar he usually avoids as he knows many of his students frequent there, making eyes to the ‘zesty and feisty’ bar owner. When he meets her, he understands why… What he doesn’t understand is why his heart flutters the moment she speaks to him nor does she get why a strange tattoo on his arm seems strangely familiar.


           This had to be the worst day in Professor Roald Sherwood’s professional life.

           First, he had been late to his morning lecture on Myths and Legends due to a car crash that had snarled traffic for miles. By the time he got to his classroom, he was a half hour late and so his students had left after waiting the traditional ten minutes—since he wasn’t an adjunct. He trudged to his office and apologized to the dean for his tardiness. Thankfully, he wasn’t usually late, so the dean was lenient on him.

           It ended up being the best part of his day.

           He gave a quiz in his British Literature class that proved all of them were woefully unprepared and he laid into them for not reading the assigned material. Some looked sheepish but most just stared at him blank-faced as if he were barmy for even expecting students in a three hundred level class to do the reading. Those expressions all changed when he threw them out of class and warned them that they needed to have the reading done by the next class.

           Steamed from that experience, he marched down into his office and found the dean waiting for him again, along with Victoria Tremaine. Her daughter Ivy was in his Literary Writing course, something he could tell her mother was not pleased with but only accepted because it fulfilled the elective credits Ivy needed to graduate. Ivy was a good student, a solid B+, but apparently Mother thought her grades could be better and he was to blame. He had to sit for an hour defending his grading policies to a helicopter parent while his dean sat stony-faced in a corner.

           The dean finally said something to end the meeting, promising Victoria that Ivy’s grades would improve. He then ordered Roald to give Ivy higher marks, even if she didn’t deserve them, because Victoria was a major donor to the university and they didn’t want to risk it. Roald had argued about ethics and integrity but the dean was firm.

           Roald nearly resigned right there but he managed to keep his anger in control. The last thing he needed was to overreact to one bad day and one bitchy but powerful mother and lose steady employment he usually loved. Besides, he needed the paycheck to keep his apartment—who knew how long it would take to find another job? His savings wouldn’t last more than a few months at best.

           By the time the sun had gone down and he turned off his office lights, all he wanted was a drink. A really, really strong drink. Maybe two. Heck, it was Friday. He could live a little. Three really, really strong drinks it was.

           The campus he was assigned to was near Hyperion Heights, a rather bohemian community Roald was interested in but never really interacted with. Many of his students lived in the area and frequented the local businesses, so he didn’t spend time there outside school in order to avoid the awkward encounters with his students.

           He really wanted a drink, though, and didn’t want to drag himself across town to the bar by his apartment. Roald knew there was a bar not far from the university campus called Roni’s. All his students praised it, saying it had the best burgers in town and that the drinks were reasonably priced, even for broke college students. They also spoke about the “feisty” owner, Roni, and her easy-going manner. Many felt comfortable around her and quite a number, both male and female, admitted to being attracted to her.

           Roald, though, wasn’t interested in Roni. He just wanted something really strong to help him forget what a craptastic day he’s had. So he trudges toward the bar, ready to unwind for the weekend.

           The sign was lit up in red and green neon, Roni’s written in fancy script while arrows decorated it. He thought it was an unusual choice but shrugged it off as he entered the bar, showing his ID to the bouncer. The man nodded, motioning for Roald to pass. Alcohol was in his grasp.

Why was there no oversharing in your last post in the tags?

ohmygod you actually read them?? that just makes my day! I’ll do my best to make my oversharing just zesty enough for you, anon 

New ref!! (kinda rushed)

Luca doesn’t enjoy his job very much. It pays the bills and I guess you could say he got used to it, but he’s never been the guy who would resort to violence to solve his problems.

On the contrary, he’s extremely friendly -and- a bit of a chatter box; he would rather talk his way out of conflict instead of electrocuting his enemies.

He’s a bit clumsy and extremely dense, but also very caring (almost motherly) and patient towards his friends; enjoys cleaning, organizing and tidying up. 

Paranoid when it comes to diseases, unsanitary situations make him extremely uncomfortable.

my family's go-to for back-up dinner is to keep some chicken on-hand

stick two chicken breasts in a crock pot with a can of chicken broth, cook it on low all day. The chicken will be tender and you can shred it up and have it on hand to season as-needed to be ready for a dinner with protein!

pan-sear with taco seasoning for quesadilla or taco meat!

Prepare a thing of those shake-and-make zesty italian dressings and heat it up in a pan for something that pairs delicious with pasta or rice!

Combine the cooked chicken with two cans of enchilada sauce and a can of nacho cheese soup and two cans of rice, bake covered for 40 minutes and uncovered for 15 after sprinkling some additional cheese on top as desired!

Mix together a can of chicken broth and a can of cream of chicken soup, add a cup and a half of rice, add in some of your shredded chicken and about half a can of water, and bake covered for about 45 minutes with additional 10 to 15 uncovered to evaporate additional liquid (I like my rice overly cooked and really soft so I tend to put it in longer).

Hell, just add it to a sandwich and you’ll be good(season it a little first though),

Protein is important and chicken is very adaptable! Eat food!! Those Campbell’s skillet sauce things are easy too, and I can’t vouch for all of them because I tend to just try one and eat it forever if I like it never trying anything else but the creamy parmesan chicken on is good.

Grilled Tamarind Lime Chicken 

Add something new to your grilling lineup with this spicy, saucy chicken. Tamarind and lime are combined to make a zesty sauce with a comfortable heat from crushed red pepper. It’s perfect for chicken breasts, but also makes a delicious glaze for grilled fish or a post-grill dipping sauce for vegetable kabobs.

INGREDIENTS:
1 can (14 oz.) tomato sauce
