I‘m back. And I’m feeling more like Tanya, rather than surly Tanya who felt grumpy 24/7. Max and I watched some movies and the first season of Orphan Black. They had a free On Demand marathon last weekend, which included BBCA so I binge-watched the show. It started a bit slow, but eventually I got hooked. And, of course, there was no way I was going to miss the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad. Oh my.
The consequences of Walter White’s decision to cook meth so his family wouldn’t be destitute after his death are finally coming to light. Everyone is paying the price for their association with Walt, but he still doesn’t seem to grasp that his decision to break bad is the root cause for all the suffering. He remains in denial and bitterly blames everyone but himself.
I love how he went from an amoral protagonist (I rooted for him even though he was cooking meth) to an evil man (Now I am reveling in his comeuppance. You tell him Flynn!). I am going to miss Breaking Bad, but I’ve always been a big believer in leaving on a high note with the audience wanting more.
What else did I do? Well, I cooked some wonderful things, including these cheddar chicken strips (you were getting worried that I forgot about them—admit it!). I enjoy chicken, but sometimes it turns out bland and dry. But not these babies! They hit all the right notes—juicy, tender and delicious. And pretty darn easy to whip up too.
