I actually have wine for this wine wednesday but I broke the cork so I improvised (that’s a shot glass):

Am I innovative or what? I’m like Steve Jobs. I’ll be Samantha Jobs. Guess I’ll have to change the name of my blog.

First Follower to Bring Me Food Gets…

Nothing. You should bring me edible things out of the kindness of your heart. Specifically this pizza. Or you can donate to the Tati-Wants-A-Pizza Foundation. All donations are welcome and every Tati is guaranteed a pizza since there’s only one of us. Think of me next time you go grocery shopping!

Productive Procrastination

I’m telling myself that I’m taking a break from studying. But I think the outside world calls it procrastination. So I’m sorry I lied again. My pants are totally on fire. I’m probably not going to be posting any less than usual. I’ve literally been inside all day, except when I went to one class and then went to Starbucks to get an iced-triple-grande-soy-caramel-macchiato. So in case you ever want to bring me Starbucks, just be aware that my drink will take three minutes to explain to the barrista. Anyway, other than those two isolated incidences, I have been cooped up in the “lounge” in my dorm. I put lounge in quotations because they’re trying to disguise our basement as something fancier than it is. Like when lean cuisine disguises itself as a gourmet meal. It is not a lounge and if I had a great-grandmother, this is what her house would feel like. Although, my sanity is diminishing, I now know a hell of a lot more about Consumer Media Culture than I did four hours ago. Just wanted to share some pics for #winewednesday even though I don’t have any wine to help me study!

Taco on steroids

This is so unlike me, but here is a health sammich/wrap thing. I feel like wrapping it would be the most difficult part. Mine would end up looking like a taco on steroids, given the size it would be. Everyone says quinoa is good for you so it must be true. Well I say that high fructose corn syrup is good for you. Lettuce start this trend together.

Anyway, go forth and be skinny.

Remember earlier when I promised to post something healthy?

I lied. And I’m not sorry about it. I hope this picture changes the way you think about carbs because I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE. The genius that made this deserves a nobel prize. Do chefs get nobel prizes? Is that a thing? Can we make it a thing? I bet you anything that this was originally created by a drunk college student at 2 am because he/she couldn’t find Ramen Noodles. I’m not sure why I’ve never thought of this, but I guess I’m not meant to be a nobel prize winning chef that stacks carbs on carbs. Lets just throw ice cream on it. Who’s with me?

Spaghetti & Meatball Pizza

Ingredients
1 18oz. pizza dough
2 cups cooked spaghetti
½ cup tomato sauce + 2 T sauce
1 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
meatball recipe ( enough meatballs for 2 pizzas)
1 lb. ground beef
1 egg
¼ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon garlic
1 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoon grated Romano Cheese
1 slice bread
Instructions
In medium bowl, place ground beef, egg, oregano, garlic, milk and cheese.
Wet the slice of bread with a little water and squeeze excess water out.
Place wet bread in bowl along with other ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
Putting on food service gloves to do the mixing helps, especially when the phone rings and well, that seems to happen as soon and I get my hands on the food.
Roll 2 tablespoon size meatballs and cook them in a skillet on medium until cooked through.
Spread out pizza dough onto pizza pan with corn meal sprinkled on it, so the dough doesn’t stick.
Place ¼ cup tomato sauce on top and spread evenly.
Spread Mozzarella cheese on top of sauce.
Mix the spaghetti with ¼ cup sauce and add that to the top of the pizza. I use a fork to divide the spaghetti evenly around the pizza.
Cut 6 meatballs in half and place them onto pizza.
Brush tops of meatballs with the remaining tomato sauce.
Bake pizza in 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Slide pizza off pizza pan and bake directly on oven rack for 2-3 more minutes for bottom of pizza to crisp.

Start off your morning with clogged arteries

First of all, you’re welcome. Secondly, I vow to post healthier things as well but this is one of the first things I saw this morning and now I can’t stop thinking about it. Its like me and this piece of cake have known each other for years. I can’t explain our love to you. You just won’t understand. “Tati and Cake:” A Love Story Featuring Mostly Tati (because the cake will be gone as soon as tati gets her fatass hands on it).
