I’m not usually a big fan of the concept of Cordon Bleu, as I’ve never really been much of a ham guy, or turkey type of guy, for that matter. I’m particular with my roast beef too, if it isn’t from Arby’s or that style, I’m not a fan. I really should learn what they do that makes me like it so much so that I can order roast beef from the grocery store or another restaurant. Which reminds me, my wife finally agreed to go to Arby’s (she’s not the biggest fan) and they were out of roast beef! I went with one of their new deep fried turkey sandwiches but I should have just went somewhere else. That was pretty disappointing.
This was another receipt that my son, Walker Dennis, helped me prepare. He really got into shredding the ham. I thought he was doing it too much so I was essentially just quartering the ham slices we got from the Walmart deli. I didn’t care for the ham, separately, but during the end result, it was pretty tasty. We usually go with a black forest ham but went with another option, it wasn’t honey as my wife doesn’t like that variety but I’m having a hard time remembering. She’s a big fan of ham, so she’s regularly getting the ham sandwich from Hardee’s and Arby’s.
I’m coming around on Swiss cheese, I hated it as a kid but my taste palette has really come a long way in the past few years.
My son also loves stuffing so that was a big hit. He didn’t eat much of the dish proper but he ate up the stuffing.

I’m behind on my Riverdale as we were closing up the third season of the Nick TMNT third season. That ends on such an intense note! I really want to launch into the fourth season, especially the first episode but I need to take the long weekend to get caught up on Riverdale. The Sony BluRay player we have in our son’s room doesn’t have the CW, so I have to stick with watching it on the Kindle. Eventually, we’ll be able to find the Roku Stick that was on his television prior to our big move. We have so much in storage that we haven’t come across it, and we thought we opened every box. It is in a safe spot, is what I’m thinking. I imagine it is in my comic book box that also has my Notary Public stamp. I found my book in another box but not the stamp. Which is the part I really need to so I can help out the office being another Notary Public. That comic book box didn’t have my six or so issues that I bought from Hastings that I never got around to reading so I want to find that second box as there are some other documents in there too. That’s from my memory, at least.
We’re caught up on most of our shows. The Monday night episode of the Voice was pretty disappointing, I only liked three of the songs. There are no many contestants and their video packages are not leaving much of an impression on me. I had to look up their names and songs from Wikipedia. I thought Brook Simpson (Team Miley)’s rendition of Praying lacked a lot of the purpose of Kesha’s version, which makes sense as it is an extremely personal song. Which is a concept that I keep coming back to with artists like Ed Sherran that he writes all of these personal songs, then within six months of the album (or single) release, randoms are now singing them on singing competition shows, like they were just words put to music. It is an odd concept that I’m just now thinking about. That’s what happens with popular music, the artist releases it to the world and one never knows how the word is going to respond.
My main problem with the episode was that song selection was pretty lousy. I just want some fun upbeat songs, or if you are going to do a slower song, you have to knock it out. I liked Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake) with Dido’s Thank You, probably the real winner of the night, for me. But I could have just did without the episode. Am I surprised that Team Adam had two people in the bottom two? No, of course not. I imagine the winner will either be from Blake or Miley’s team. JHud has such a team that they are pretty exchangeable. Also, the Instant Save song, better just be a fun upbeat song, so people see that you are fun and a delight to keep seeing in the competition. Let’s hope that Adam Cunningham can take some notes and isn’t leaving next, even though, he really should be next. Which is the point of the Instant Save, to put a contestant on notice and go in a new potentially winning direction.
Dancing with the Stars 25 big winner is Lindsay and Jordan Fisher won, which makes complete sense. Fisher is essentially a professional dancer. There is a fun piece of trivia with Lindsay coming in fourth, third, second and now, finally, first, over the past four consecutive seasons. Which is a record that someone on production must have gotten the word out on. It wasn’t a bad season, I had to read the result as I had to get to work this morning and didn’t wake up early enough to finish the entire episode.
We got fully caught up on last week’s show by last thing Sunday night. Now that Dancing is over, we should be able to start tackling our backlog of shows. I really want to continue watching Stranger Things 2 and Inhumans.
We saw the first episode of Runaways, I really dug it. Alex is pretty cast perfect with his look. It bugs me that Molly is the same age (maybe a year younger?) but it makes sense. A 12 year old would be pretty limited with her screen time, BUT she didn’t get that much screen time, so what would be the harm? We’ll probably try to watch the next episodes once we get one more of the other shows seen. I like how Hulu released the first three, so that’s pretty nice.
Our next episode of The Office Season Seven is The Search.
I’ve been so pleased with Hartley Sawyer’s take of Elongated Man on this season of The Flash. I keep waiting for them to give him that soft lavender costume. Plus a gal named Sue! That’s what that show needed.
I’m on episode 96 of Living Between Wednesdays, wherein Rachelle and Dave rate Elongated Man for the revised Super Hunks feature. I wish they would do a proper blog post for the new ratings, that’ll be nice. They make the joke about how the choice is out of the blue as there was nothing keeping him in the public consciousness. But to me, it made perfect sense as he’s on The Flash now but they’re still so far in the past that there probably wasn’t even casting news. Heck, I didn’t even know he was joining the show until they said Ralph Dibny’s name. Then it took me several minutes before I realized I did recognize that name. The podcast episode came out in June 2017, the week after Wonder Woman came to theaters. I’m hoping I get her BluRay for Christmas and finally see that film. From what I’ve been told, I’m getting a slew of BluRays with digital copies of several superhero films. Wonder Woman and Spider-Man : Homecoming are my top two picks. I see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is coming to Netflix in early December so the need for that one goes down a bit.
We’re hoping to score a PS4 at either Target or Costco, as both have it for just under $200 and that’s a price I can’t say no too! For our anniversary, I’m hoping to get my wife that 43 inch television with built-in Roku as we’re fans of that setup. We’ve really need a new television for the living room. It is currently $280 so if it could go down to $250 for Black Friday, I’ll scoop one of those up too! My wife says that it was pretty low last year and hasn’t dropped in price since then so it must still be a $280 value television.
I do like how Costco isn’t doing anything on Thanksgiving, good for them! Sadly, with a PS4 in our sights, we’ll be outside of Target around 5pm or so. I’m hoping they do the first hour guarantee. We’ve passed up on deals for controllers and such, already, as I don’t want buy any of the side stuff until owning the system itself.
. . .
From my family to you and yours, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
My wife an enlisted me to help her cook a corn casserole and a sweet potato casserole, so that’s what we’re contributing. And two different types of rolls from this great local place, Great Harvest.
I still can’t believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to be out of the retail game and the holidays feel like real joys instead of obstacles that I have to endure until the day itself. It is tiring and the late nights are starting to catch up to me.
