tuesday things I howsweeteats.com

1. I can’t stop with this passion-whatever tea from starbucks. It tastes better than iced coffee in the heat. Yeah yeah, I know I can make my own. I even bought it! So basic.

2. These fiery shrimp lettuce boats! I want I want. Dinner tonight.

3. Birthday cake m&m’s taste exactly nothing like birthday cake.

4. Um. Less than a month until the Jersey Boys movie comes out. Dying.

5. One of my favorite things ever: when celebrities read mean tweets about themselves. Cannot.stop.laughing.

6. Can we all agree that twitter parties… just need to stop? Or am I in the minority?

7. Remember last week when I told you I watched Captain Phillips? Eddie walked in halfway but refused to watch it because he “doesn’t like Tom Hanks.” Uh, what? Excuse me? I told him he was unamerican. WHO doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Regardless, it ended up being on HBO again one night and he watched it and was glued to the screen and now we just walk around the house shouting “I’m the captain now.”

8. So this week the only thing I watched was Mad Men since the rest of my favorite shows are over. UGH I can’t even take how much I loved it. I hate that it’s already over. I thought it was one of the best episodes of the season. Not so unrelated – last night HBO had an episode of Big Love on and I wish that show was still going. Oh oh and last summer I shared my extreme embarrassment at actually kinda maybe liking that show Mistresses and I think it’s coming back. I’ll just pretend I’m not watching it though and sit in my own second hand embarrassment. For myself.

9. These 37 things I’ve learned by 33. I may not be 33 but these are spot on perfection.

10. The fruit pizza I made this past weekend was so ridiculously good. It was breakfast, lunch and dinner. For real. It’s FRUIT! Total health food.

    Your fruit pie and flank steak with caprese salad was a huge hit at my party this past weekend! Thanks for the help on instragram!

    I made the mistake of watching the last Grey’s and Mad Men of the season on the last day of the three day weekend. Talk about Slit-my-wrists Suzie. Don completes me.

    #5 was amazing.. Sophia’s was hilarious!
    My boyfriend and I saw Captain Phillips in theater so like last year.. we still yell out I am the captain now, when one of us takes over cooking, driving, cleaning.. you know, whatever.. never gets old. Anyone who doesn’t love Tom Hanks has some Green Mile, Big and Sleepless in Seattle to get re-acquainted with.

    I secretly watched Mistresses last summer and was shocked, yet pleased to see its back!

    I am with Eddie, can’t handle Tom Hanks…not sure this can even persuade me to watch this new one. To me, he is always the same, and I just cringe because I always think he’s like a really dorky dad embarrassing himself even though he never knows it.
    I know…take my citizenship away!

    I love summer tv shows….maybe not as much as the fall shows, but there’s still some great stuff on. Such as: Hankmen, MasterChef, Pennysomething (can’t remember the whole name, but it has Josh Harnette in it!!!). White Colar, and there’s a whole bunch of new stuff coming that I’m sort of looking forward to watching.

    I hate that they are dividing this season of mad men into two sections. If they are a year apart call it two different seasons. Don’t confuse me. Rant done. :)

    I am all about those damn refreshers and the passion fruit iced teas. So good.

    I just watched Captain Phillips this last week and wow, just wow. I was not expecting to be so engrossed in it and emotional!

    Thank you for that link about the 37 things…amazing.

    I could not even believe how good that last episode of Mad Men was. They definitely stepped up their game in those last couple of episodes. Celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves is the best. Also, ice tea in the summer time cannot be beat. It’s all I want to drink ever.

    I juuuust found the mean tweet thing last week and died. So so so good. I love how some of them are like, “aww, that was really mean…” I’ve been in one twitter party thing and it was actually kind of fun…but I see it as like a once a year occurrence, haha.

    I don’t like Tom Hanks. My husband can’t believe it, either. Except for the movie That Thing you Do. But that totally doesn’t count.

    I watched Mistresses last summer too! But only on Sunday nights when my roommate was at the gym, my boyfriend had gone home and I could watch the craziness with a bowl of popcorn. I thought I was the only one that watched it!

    How can you not love Tom Hanks?? Also my boyfriend did the same thing- he would NOT stop saying “I am the captain now” after we watched that movie.

    Colour me stunned – had no idea that was the series finale of Mad Men! Ahh… now it all makes so much sense.

    Oh and the Tom Hanks thing? My OH is of the same thinking. I need to sit him down and make him watch Captain Philips.
