I didn’t mean to take so much time away from the blog, it sort of just happened that way. Sorry about that.
This is a pretty great recipe for a potluck, I would only changed it from two tablespoons of poppy seeds to one, as one was plenty for us.
What was also plenty for us, was this dish! Once I poured the Cheddar cheese in, I started realizing that this was a lot of food. So next time, I’ll just half ingredients. I also started having that thought with all the sour cream the recipe called for.
Not a full rotisserie chicken
Probably keep the 16 ounce egg noodles
12 ounces of sour cream
Probably keep the two cans of cream of chicken soup
Probably go with one eight ounce bag of mixed Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese
Keep the sleeve of Club crackers, the garlic variety
Keep the 1/4 cup of melted butter
1 tablespoon of poppy seeds is all we needed so we’ll keep that too
Another change of the preparation, and maybe this is more of a fun factor, is that i would stir each new ingredient, as we put it in. I had the idea after doing the two cans of soups but I should have started that immediately with the sour cream. It would have made for a better mixture.
Our six quarter pot, that we use for everything (so we need to do dishes after using it, every time) was pretty full when everything was in it. I started getting concern everything wasn’t going to fit inside the 9 x 13 dish.
We ended up eating half of it, as it was pretty dense. Very tasty but dense. Just a big spoonful was all we needed for a serving.
I also bought a Costco rotisserie chicken, after being told that it was the best price and pretty tasty. I thought it worked out pretty well. I think I still prefer just cooking up some chicken thighs and going that route but I understand it is supposed to be a time saving measure but I don’t think it really is, after all the chopping and pulling the meat apart.

We’re onto Season Eight of The Office, our next episode is Lotto. So far, it hasn’t been to bad, without Steve Carrell being around. That may change, as I know the show only lasts this and the next season.
We are all caught up with the CW Superhero shows. I really enjoyed that Crisis of Earth-X crossover, it was the best one yet.
I’m behind with Riverdale, I usually watch it with my son. Which may be questionable but I have to watch TV with either my wife or my son as I don’t have private time to myself. With the holiday season upon us, I should have time as our shows tend to stop airing new episodes.
Our next episode of the Nick Turtles is The Insecta Trifecta. I’m happy they are back on Earth but I’m curious if the old space turtles are ever going to be mention. So odd that there are duplicates out there, having adventures but being told about what their future selves were up to. Pretty complicated but I know that show ends after the fifth season so it isn’t a big worry. Hopefully Hulu uploads those episodes as we’re going to be done with the fourth season, relatively soon.
On Netflix, we’ve started watching Harlan Coben’s The Five. We’re two episodes in and we’re hoping to finish the entire thing soon. So far, pretty good.
We probably won’t start Legends of Tomorrow until the summer, we want a break from superhero shows. I’m not dying to watch Luke Cage, Iron Fist or the Defenders, so we might be done there. Which means we probably won’t watch Punisher anytime soon, though I’ve heard good things.
We did finish Inhumans, it wasn’t horrible, and I liked that the last two episodes took place on Avalon. I wish the Royal Family don their proper costumes for the last two episodes but I get that they were still moving fast but it would have been nice. I do want to watch the motion comic Inhumans DVD, as it still is in the plastic wrap.
We are thinking of starting to watch Emily Owens, MD on Netflix as The Five is only ten episodes. I looked it up last night and FOX’s The Gifted is 13 episodes, when I thought it was only ten. I’ve heard good things about Owens and it is another done-in-one season. Hopefully it ties everything up at the end there. I’m fine with a tease for season two but hopefully all the main plot points tie up. It has Justin Hartley in the cast, so that helped convinced my wife too.
There is a new episode of Runaways so we have to watch that this week.

I’m on episode 106 of Living Between Wednesdays, so I’m doing it! I can’t wait to be caught up with that show. I haven’t been missing Undisclosed so I am seriously thinking of going through Turtle Soup but this time, keeping track of funny segments. I wrote up a Second Clip show option for the Uncanny X-Cast, which I had planned on posting once they did a new episode but I might just post it some day. I did share it with Rob but I don’t think they’ll use it anytime soon. Not like Turtle Soup would use my clip suggestions but I’ve been thinking about it for so long I might as well do it and get it out of my head. I’m not sure if I want to go through the trouble of creating a Wiki for it or just posting it here as special posts, which I probably will do, plus it gives me content. I’m sure there is a way for me to create a special subpage where everything can be kept but I’m not sure how to do that with WordPress. If anyone knows how to do that, I’ll be up for a step by step direction. I’ll Google it and see if I can find an easy way to do it. I feel like I looked it up before and it looked super complicated, going into the other WordPress where the templates live and doing things there, I was put off by it, is my sense memory of it.
If you are current with all of Comixology’s free comics, today they released :
Patsy Walker, AKA Hellcat #1 / Uncanny Inhumans 1, SHIELD (2014) #1 / Captain America 444
I really need to put the Comixology app onto my Kindle. My wife gave me a free trade code for Amazon and I downloaded IvX but I haven’t open the trade yet. It took like 20 minutes for it to load, which by the time it was loaded, I had to start doing something else.
I plan on updating with Comixology’s free comics, just so I can get a feel for when new ones are added. I feel like they are added every two weeks but maybe not?

TMNT Legends is still a fine game. Ludia did change the Challenges so we can replay them, daily, to get new DNA cards, so that was a nice improvement. I’m getting closer to getting my second to bottom tier guys moved up to the next stage, so they can no longer be level 30. Once I get like five of those guys, the game should open up some more for me. It is a grind but it is almost over. I’m excited to get the new April Kunoichi, especially as we’re watching this version on the show now. Fun how all that came together, for me, at the same time. She’s the prize for the current tournament. I keep getting into the bottom tier of the Shogun tier but I’m clearly not meant to be in there. I finally have a decent two teams of level 45 characters and my third team is mid-30 but I’m clearly supposed to be at level 50 so I keep being bounced back to the upper tier of Samurai. I hope I got those names right, it is the blue tier and the brown tier is the one I’m clearly under-leveled for.

I really do enjoy writing these posts, I just need to do it more often. I just been so distracted with work and life, I haven’t had any think pieces come to mind to write down. I need to be less busy, I guess. Not sure how that’ll happen but maybe the end of 2018 would be a bold start, if everything works out.
