Tasty Delights-- Crispy Chickpea Tacos

Oh my heavenly food. I NEVER would have thought to make chickpea tacos. Chickpeas pretty much only exist for hummus to me. So this was a delicious surprise and I will SO make them again.

A fresh, light twist on tacos. Loved. It. And look at all those lovely colors together.

Oh and this was another HelloFresh box. I'll link info at the bottom for anyone wanting to try out their service.

Randomly Random--- Eyebrow Raising Items In Your House (with no explanation)

A 3am musing from a while back, today. So, I'd been watching Blue Bloods and the chick cop was all tickled by some random things they found in a vics apartment and her partner was like dude! what weirdness would people find if they walked in YOUR house right now?

And she was like...something in the DVD player I'd rather no one know about.

And he perks up!

And she's like...the little mermaid.


But, seriously, I woke up at 249am and was like, well shit! I've got some real weird stuff in my house, too. So. Things you'd find here that might raise an eyebrow if you randomly visited and I couldn't explain myself....

Joining In: The 2017 A to Z Challenge & My Theme!

Woohoo! It's that time of year again. The A to Z Challenge. This is my 5th year participating. Crazy! I can't believe the blog is still going. Whew!

Basically...a couple thousand blogs blog the alphabet during the month. One letter each day of the month minus Sundays. All types of blogs. All types of topics. Only thing connecting them is the day's letter.

Audio Files-- Smitten Book Club (Smitten #3) Anthology

Smitten Book Club was my first time with the narrator, series, and all four of the authors-- Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter and Diann Hunt. And I had a good time with them. Sweet, heartwarming, and a charming look into a small town.

Buy the Book-- New Releases, Sales, Freebies!

Eee! Another week where I've read none of the newbies. *flails* lol Some sure look pet-able, though :D And yall! OMG the sales section. You need to buy them ALL!!! lol Most are 99 cents and some of my favorite authors. Woo!

3.5 stars-- Too Taboo Anthology w/ Bardan, Cameron, & Stewart

Too Taboo. Yes, this anthology definitely dabbles on the side of naughty. Erotic, passionate, and eager to push boundaries Too Taboo sure heated things up on a cold winter's night.

Overall I really enjoyed this one. Some were stronger than others as the case usually is with an anthology but it was a nice taste of three new to me authors. So the stories are connected by a dubious consent theme. Each in a different way and the first two each with a surprising twist that left me going Oooo!

Memes! Top Ten Tues/Waiting on Wed-- 10 Shortest Books I've Read aka The Monster Porn List

Quote-tastic-- *said with an Irish lilt*

Another week where I didn't have a review book for Quote-tastic. *flails* But perfect because I was feeling like some Eve and Roarke today.

I reviewed New York to Dallas a year or so ago and, as always, loved it. These two are just my favorite pretty much anything when it comes to reading-- the prickly police lieutenant and her reformed bad boy husband who rocks a sexy Irish lilt. At this point they'd had like 33 books together as a couple and seeing their marriage over the years has been a lot of fun. Romantic bits and snarky growly bits. This one just killed me...
