This was a pretty nice and easy meal. I paired it with some baked chicken, nothing too fancy. This could have used more cheese and more chives!
Since it wasn’t that many potatoes and I finally learned that potatoes need to be cut into eighths for anything that involves mashing them, this didn’t really take too long to prep.
I put in six cloves of garlic instead of four as we really like garlic. I feel like it barely tasted of garlic still.
I used two cups of cheddar cheese and we still wanted more. Might end up getting two bags of two cups worth of Cheddar cheese.
I did use three tablespoons of chopped chives but my wife looked into her bowl and asked where all the chives went so next time, five tablespoons of chives, at the very least. The bowl was mostly white with a few lines of yellow and a speck or two of green. Not the color feast I was hoping for.
We’ll probably add onions to it for next time. Maybe some bits of bacon too? Maybe just go crazy with the whole thing.

We’re still in the middle of season eight of The Office, our next episode is Tallahassee, which hopefully it is as good as previous multi-episode arcs like Jim’s time in Stamford and the Michael Scott Paper Company arc. That pool party episode should have been better, one of the few episodes we had to stop in the middle of and it took us a few days to get back to it.
We’re looking forward to all of our shows being done for the winter break, gives us time to catch up with other shows.
Marvel’s Runaways is still going, and that show gets better and better. I wish there was a local comic book store I could pick up that first trade to refresh my memories. My sense memory was that the parents were barely in it, more like bookend scenes or something. The latest episode ended on such an intense note!
Looking up Runaways reminded me that we are getting Cloak & Dagger and New Warriors, both coming to FreeForm. Which is pretty nice and all three shows are set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so that’s cool too. I haven’t seen anything on Runaways that proves or disproves that but if Jeff Loeb says it is true, he’ll know. I didn’t even know that Squirrel Girl was cast but she’s the playwright from This is Us, Sloane, her actress is Milana Vayntrub. Odd that Squirrel Girl and Great Lakes Avengers’ Mister Immortal are the big names of the show. At least Night Thrasher and Speedball are represented. Maybe they can quickly incorporate Justice and Firestar to the show with the Disney / 21st Century FOX merger coming. There apparently is a trailer for the Cloak and Dagger show that I need to watch. It occurs to me that I haven’t done a post regarding the Avengers : Infinity Wars trailer.
We’re finally three episodes into Harlan Coben’s The Five. There is a moment in the third episode that I just loved and now I just want to binge the rest of the seven episodes but we still have to get through The Voice and maybe two other shows. What happens would have taken maybe seven episodes on an American series but they solved it and the twist in no time. Detective Kenwood is now my favorite television police detective. I may have to make a list but besides Batman, I’m not sure I even have a list of favorite detectives for one particular genre. I guess Dick Tracy and Elongated Man would count.

I’m on episode 117 of Living Between Wednesdays so I’m getting caught up! They are reviewing Justice League and I’m going to have to make peace with the fact that I’m going to listen to their Star Wars episode before I even get a chance to see it. As I doubt our son will want to sit through The Last Jedi but maybe he will. If anything, it will be towards the end of its run in the theater. We didn’t see Force Awakens until it was well onto DVD, like a month after it came out.
. . .
TMNT Legends, I’m finally close to getting all of my characters to level 31, well besides the ones that don’t have available DNA to use.
I’m going to have to double time the tournament if I want to get Shinigami, though it is still early in the week. I usually get to the third tier of the blue one which is where I have to be to unlock Shinigami, so I should be able to do it without any real problems.
I’m at level 66 so I’m close to level 70 where I get to participate in particular challenges, so that’ll be nice. I still barely play for 20 minutes, in the morning, at lunch and at night. So an hour is pretty good for a free game.
We are all caught up with Season Four of the Nick Turtles, so I really need Hulu to get season five put up but I imagine that’s a year away.
Now that we are done with that show, I’ll be able to go back to Riverdale. Sounds like Living Between Wednesdays is wavering if they are going to keep watching it. I still can’t believe they decided to do 22 episodes of Riverdale, the first season’s 13 was so tightly written and this season just feels bloated and filler-ful. Which is super disappointing.
