Nah, I woke up this morning and I had the dumbest song stuck in my head and I’d love nothing more than to sing it to you so that it can be stuck in your head too.
That’s such a vengeful thing to do, isn’t it?
I’m going down so I’m taking you with me, that’s such a piece of shit thing to do, right?
Well this song is stuck in my head and I’m sorry to say it’s going to be stuck in your head too.
And now I have given you a good…probably a good 18 seconds… to get out of this and that’s plenty of time but you choose not to.
YOU chose to keep reading, just remember that.
“Girl you’re worth iiiiit…..*finger snap*………
The way you work iiiiit….*finger snap*……..
And you deserve iiiiiit…..*finger snap*……..
Girl you earrrrrrned……ER EAAARNED IT!!!
That song Earned It by The Weeknd, from 50 Shades of Gray which I did NOT watch by the way.
I did not watch it and I have no fucking intention of ever watching that movie but that fucking song is stuck in my head.
Is that even how they spell his name, The Weeknd with no ‘e’ after the ‘k’?
I don’t know I don’t know…all I know is I woke up with that fucking song stuck in my head and nothing I do will shake it off.
It’s like a goddamn curse.
It’s like…remember those guys in Star Trek, the old school one where they stuck the worms in the two guys ears, remember that?
They were never the same.
That’s what having this fucking song stuck in my head feels like.
But now that you’re suffering right along with me, let’s try and plow ahead here.
Oh by the way, I’ve been meaning to tell you I saw The Hateful Eight, did you get to see that yet??
I can’t remember if I already talked about it but I saw it in 70mm at the Somerville Theater a couple weeks ago and it was everythinggggggg.
We actually had an intermission, where like the curtains close and the lights come on, you go freshen up and get another cocktail – we like had a full intermission.
It had a full overture in the beginning, it wasn’t crowded up by coming attractions and movie trailers, none of that fucking bullshit.
Because let’s be real here…who the fuck is gonna shoot that shit in 70mm?
It was such an experience, from start to finish Tarantino was like I don’t give a fuck.
He was like this is the movie I am going to make, the movie is this long, it’s going to be bloody as a motherfucker and you can either settle the fuck in or leave –
That movie is the shit.
Poached Salmon with Cilantro Cream Sauce
What I Used
2 Salmon Fillets. 4 cups Cilantro (stems removed). 1 cup Clam Juice. 1 cup Coconut Cream. Salt. Pepper. Half a Lime.
What I Did
Let me just say that poaching the salmon likes this gives it such an incredibly rich, buttery texture.
I swear to god, just re-reading this post has my mouth watering all over again.
Begin by tearing the cilantro leaves apart from their stems and place in a blender or large bowl.
Add in the coconut milk, lime juice and clam juice and using an immersion blender or regular blender, puree until smooth.
Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper then pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, straining the ground herb apart from the liquid.
Empty the sieve in the trash, preserving the sauce left in the bowl.
Rinse & pat-dry the salmon and season with salt & pepper.
Place in a large pot and fill the pot with just enough water to almost cover the salmon and place on the stove under med-high heat.
Bring to a boil and then lower heat to a simmer.
Re-heat the cilantro sauce.
Serve the salmon on top of rice or with a rich salad, spooning the cilantro sauce on top and around it.
