once I had a dream that my manager at work thought I was flirting with her boyfriend so she was yelling at me like we were on a mtv reality show right there in a tex mex fast food restaurant while we were making fucking tacos (I don’t even work on the production line but I still somehow knew exactly how to make everything) and then I woke up crying

seeing her irl the next day was really awkward

anonymous asked:

what kind of place do you work at?

I work at a Tex Mex restaurant in the heart of Boystown, Chicago’s gayborhood. So everything around me is very gay all the time. I love it! It’s a fun place to work, especially when you work w me 😎

I'm looking more into a vegan diet and I was wondering what you eat on a regular basis because I feel like it would be really hard to maintain. Thanks babe

Heck yah that’s awesome and I’m so glad to hear it! I just got home from college and I’m really stoked to be cooking for myself again.

It took me about a year and a half to transition fully from vegetarian to vegan so don’t be too overwhelmed by the commitment. I’m a firm believer that it’s something you have to explore and feel out for yourself since we live in a culture whose diet is so dominated by the consumption of animal products. It takes time for your mindset to change and to find/establish a consistent routine that works for you.
Everyone is capable of going vegan or at least cutting back - you just have to start somewhere.

Breakfast:

  • Avocado toast (mash an avocado with olive oil and lemon/lime juice and spread over toast or a bagel)
  • Bagel with hummus
  • Plain oatmeal made with almond milk with banana, peanut butter, dried cherries, almond slices, and sometimes some brown sugar
    • Side note: dried cherries are high in melatonin which helps you sleep better
  • Cereal with almond or coconut milk (favorite is cheerios which is like 99.999999% vegan but otherwise I rec raisin brand or captain crunch)
  • Toast with peanut butter and bananas or jelly
  • Pancakes are super easy to make vegan! I buy normal whole grain pancake mix and substitute the milk with nondairy milk and the egg for a flax egg which is an egg substitute
    • side note: flax eggs are a super easy, much healthier egg substitute, even if you aren’t vegan/transitioning
  • F R U I T - bananas, apples, berries, or whatever’s in season
  • Smoothies with nondairy milk, frozen or fresh fruit, peanut butter, spinach, kale, nondairy yogurt, coffee - whatever’s in the fridge. There are a trillion recipes on pinterest and other health food blogs

Lunch/Dinner:

  • I usually keep 3-4 vegetables in my fridge that are easy to throw in anything I make or eat as a side throughout the week. You can also keep canned or frozen veggies 
  • Couscous/quinoa/brown rice are all super easy to make with vegetables and fairly inexpensive to buy in bulk. Try spinach, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots, red peppers, mushrooms, pine nuts or almonds, etc. and season with garlic, parsley, mint, basil, etc.
  • Seasoned black beans, red beans, chickpeas, etc. from a bag or a can
  • Seasoned edamame (v good with sriracha)
  • Progresso carries a lot of vegan soups!!! Favorites are vegetable lentil, vegetarian vegetable, and hearty tomato
  • Bulk meals that can last all week like vegetarian chili, pasta, big rice dishes, etc.
  • Salads with whatever veggies I have in the fridge + pine nuts, almonds, craisins, etc. Favorite vegan salad dressings are balsamic and raspberry or pomegranate vinagrette.
  • POTATOES - try a baked potato with Hormel vegetarian chili on top
  • I love making the veggie and hummus sandwich from the coffee shop where I used to work which has lotsa veggies like spring mix, cucumbers, tomato, and carrots with hummus, pine nuts, and craisins on wheat bread
  • I’m not a fan of most vegan meat substitutes plus they can get pricey, but there are some pretty good options for soy chicken nuggets + there’s always tofu or tempeh you can buy in bulk and keep in the fridge for when you need something tasty and substantive.

Snacks:

  • Cliff bars
  • Trail mix (I like to make my own bc it’s cheaper)
  • Unsalted nut mixes or just plain almonds
  • Guac/chips n salsa
  • Simply salted popcorn from Orville Redenbacher
  • Fruit cups
  • Hummus with pretzels, carrots, celery, etc.
  • Fruit pops (available in the freezer section)
  • Baked Lays potato chips
  • Traditional chex mix
  • Apples with peanut butter
  • Ben & Jerry’s has vegan ice cream now and it’s THE BEST.

And if you’re worried about going out to eat:

  • Cafeteria style Tex-Mex restaurants like Qdoba, Moe’s, and Chipotle (where you get guac free of charge with a veggie bowl)
  • Domino’s thin crust is vegan and they’ll make your pizza without cheese. They usually have a coupon for a large with 5 toppings for about $10 and I get lotsa veggies (spinach, roasted red pepper, tomatoes, etc.)
  • Indian restaurants foreverrrrr
  • Panera back bean and garden vegetable soup and salads (they have a few really good new ones) - they used to have a really great soba noodle bowl with edamame but I think it’s seasonal
  • #6 Veggie club from Jimmy Johns, sans mayo and cheese
  • Most Chinese take-out places have mixed veggies and brown rice
  • Wendy’s has an apple pecan salad that you can get with no chicken or cheese. Plus their fries are vegan. And they have tropical green tea which is the bomb.
  • Veggie sub with no cheese at Subway - I get all the veggies with a tiny bit of sweet onion sauce and tons of oregano
  • Einstein Brothers has a sandwich called the hummus veg-out that you can get without the veggie cream cheese spread + their fruit cups are A+++
  • Dairy Queen’s light smoothies and StarKiss bars are vegan
  • Noodles & Co. is my favorite place to eat out - favorite is the Japanese Pan Noodles. You can add tofu to any dish.
  • Yo Taco Bell has SO MANY vegan options just google it omg. Even the cinnamon twists are vegan.

I’m always happy to answer any other questions you might have!!

Best of luck xx

BC was eating last night at superica, a tex MEX restaurant at Atlanta, several sightings in Twitter

Several?   I’m sorry, but as I’ve mentioned before, I’m twitter illiterate so I can’t find links.  Anyway, when several people see him and report it on social media, usually the sightings turn out to be legit.  

I’m assuming none of them mention Weirdo and the Pilo(s)?

    You took a deep breath of fresh air as you stepped out of the plane and onto the bridge to the gate, and then yawned. It had been a long flight and it was a big time difference. “You good?” Hyuk asked.

    “Yep!” you said. “You?”

    “I’m good,” he said cheerfully. “Welcome home.”

    You smiled. It had been close to a year since you’d been in Los Angeles and you couldn’t wait to see your family and friends. You finally cleared the bridge and stepped into the airport, the heels of your boots clicking on the smooth floor. You walked together in slightly tired silence through the terminal, stopping on your way out to get a couple of coffees and then you ordered an Uber to get the pair of you to your parents’ house, where you’d be staying. They’d met Hyuk before and were eager to see him again, and they’d offered to let the pair of you stay in your home as soon as you’d told them you were coming.

    The ride was short and you and Hyuk sat mostly in silence, sipping your coffee and trying to recharge a little.

    By the time you reached your parents’ house though, you were wide awake, eager to see them. The front door of their house opened almost as soon as the Uber pulled up and you jumped out, running up the sidewalk and into your mother’s outstretched arms. “How are you, sweetheart?” she asked excitedly, holding you tight to her.

    “Good!” you said, and though you would have been content to stay in her arms much longer, you finally pulled back to look her in the eyes. “How about you?”

    “Just fantastic,” she said. “Here, let me help you with your luggage.” She hurried down the sidewalk with you to the car, greeting Hyuk with a quick hug and a kiss on the cheek before she helped the pair of you unload your luggage.

Stories about Kate McKinnon from her former high school? Do tell! Please!

alright be gotten multiple messages about this so I’ll shed some stories of what I’ve heard at school (to those who don’t know Kate McKinnon went to my high school and family lives in my town it’s all quite cool)

-she used to do the announcements at my school and would do them in different accents every day
-the orchestra teacher said she used to arrange music for the orchestra to play
-I’ve never managed to bump into her before but apparently she’s often at our local tex mex restaurant (the nachos r gr8 so)
-she was rly involved in theatre at school and did the plays and all that!! my theatre teacher is friendly with her and her family

In Colorado My Father Scoured and Stacked Dishes

in a Tex-Mex restaurant. His co-workers,
unable to utter his name, renamed him Jalapeño.

If I ask for a goldfish, he spits a glob of phlegm
into a jar of water. The silver letters

on his black belt spell Sangrón. Once, borracho,
at dinner, he said: Jesus wasn’t a snowman.

Arriba Durango. Arriba Orizaba. Packed
into a car trunk, he was smuggled into the States.

Frijolero. Greaser. In Tucson he branded
cattle. He slept in a stable. The horse blankets

oddly fragrant: wood smoke, lilac. He’s an illegal.
I’m an Illegal-American. Once, in a grove

of saguaro, at dusk, I slept next to him. I woke
with his thumb in my mouth. ¿No qué no

tronabas, pistolita? He learned English
by listening to the radio. The first four words

he memorized: In God We Trust. The fifth:
Percolate. Again and again I borrow his clothes.

He calls me Scarecrow. In Oregon he picked apples.
Braeburn. Jonagold. Cameo. Nightly,

to entertain his cuates, around a campfire,
he strummed a guitarra, sang corridos. Arriba

Durango. Arriba Orizaba. Packed into
a car trunk, he was smuggled into the States.

Greaser. Beaner. Once, borracho, at breakfast,
he said: The heart can only be broken

once, like a window. ¡No mames! His favorite
belt buckle: an águila perched on a nopal.

If he laughs out loud, his hands tremble.
Bugs Bunny wants to deport him. César Chávez

wants to deport him. When I walk through
the desert, I wear his shirt. The gaze of the moon

stitches the buttons of his shirt to my skin.
The snake hisses. The snake is torn.

Jason and Percy trying to be overprotective cousins but secretly shipping Solangelo while Piper openly ships it and may or may not try to get the Aphrodite cabin to set them up on really corny dates.

Hope you don’t mind how I interpreted this.

“Is…is that Percy and Jason trying to hide behind their menu’s?”

“Probably.” Nico agreed, not looking up from his menu. “I hope they don’t expect us to pay again.”

Will’s lips quirked into a half smile. “I feel like I’m on a double date I didn’t sign up for.”

“I feel like this is one of many double dates I didn’t sign up for. Hm. I think I’ll get the tortellini, what do you think?” Nico said, thumbing his menu and looking at the pasta list on the back page. “Piper said it was good here.”

“She has to stop sending us to Italian and Tex-Mex restaurants. It’s getting slightly insulting.”

“Taco’s not as good as the one’s Mama used to make?” Nico said with mirth. Will laid his hand palm up on the table and Nico took the opportunity to lace their fingers together. He heard excited chatter coming from the general direction of Jason and Percy where they were still hiding behind their menu’s.

“Hell nawh. I’ll have to take you to the ranch sometime and get you some real grub.”

“I’ll take you up on that offer. Now how long do you think it’ll take Jason and Perce to realize we’ve ditched them if we leave now?”

“Well, prince of the shadows, lead the way."
