Cheap Thrills – Sia and Sean Paul

I haven’t posted about music videos in a while for two reasons . . .  My favorite music video TV channel has decreased the amount of time they play music videos so I just haven’t been watching them that much (obviously this needed to change), and I just hadn’t seen any that I’ve liked that much recently.  Well, I’m happy to say, my music video drought has ended.  Pragya introduced me to 3 new channels that play music videos pretty much continuously and I’ve already found one that I liked!!  I really enjoy the women in the black mask particularly when she tries to flip over the man and falls!

 

Nachos – Beverly Hills, MI

The last night of our girls weekend in Beverly HIlls Michigan was full of wine, basketball, teaching Katie about Facebook, and some truly awesome homemade nachos (thanks to Matt).  We bought some of the toppings at the farmer’s market that we had visited earlier in the day after a great brunch and tour of Detroit!

Toppings:  The toppings included a chorizo/black bean mix (which I tended to eat on its own after I finished some of the nachos), fresh avocado, tomatoes, melted cheese and cilantro with sour cream and salsa on the side.  The chorizo and bean mix had the perfect amount of heat that was offset by the freshness of the avocado and tomatoes!  The toppings were distributed perfectly and cooked to perfection. 5/5

Topping to chip ratio:  There might have been a few leftover chips at the end but I used those to have some of the great salsa and put some of the extra chorizo/black bean mix!  4/5

Freshness:  Because I know a couple of the toppings were bought just that day at the farmer’s market I can vouch for the freshness of the ingredients 5/5

Crunchiness of Chips:  Although these chips were a step up from a normal grocery store and they did stay crunchy even under all those toppings, I have to take it down 1 point since they weren’t homemade 🙂  4/5

Creativity:  I liked the thought of mixing the chorizo and black beans together which gave the beans more flavor and also thought the sliced avocado instead of the standard guacamole gave it a much different feel.  4.5/5

Total Score:  22.5/25

Herr’s Factory Tour

Pragya having grown in Pittsburgh loves Herr’s potato chips so we did the free chip tour today.  It was fascinating to learn the history of the Jim and Mim Herr and taste chips warm right off the assembly line.  If you are near the Nottingham Pennsylvania area, definitely a stop you should make!!
