RAW October 16, 2017 Review

As with most of the WWE shows, we start off with a recap of what happened the week before. Because us fans are that stupid that we forget within one week of what has happened.

So Kurt comes out… and gets interrupted by………THE SHIELD

DMTKzifX4AAu31-

Not only are they back but they came thru the crowd wearing their vest…. Also, Ambrose got a hair cut. It feels like it was 3 years ago. I cannot believe it has been that long since they broke up in the first place.

DMTPNhHX0AAXGD6

On a completely related, but not related note. I hope that the fans keep their hands to themselves. Reigns has stated that fans get handsy and touch places that shouldn’t be touched since he is not consenting. So FANS no touchy!!!

Elias is out in the middle of the ring with Anderson and Gallows. Unfortunately, they’re singing. #IDontWalkWithElias. I really don’t. The whole singing segment only worked with Cena and Rock. It doesn’t work for them. The Bald headed babies (Stolen from my mom) tried to sing too. Not cool.

 

Luckily for all the fans, Apollo Crews, Titus O’Neil and Jason Jordan interrupted and cleared the ring. I feel like it has been so long since Titus wrestled, its weird to see him in his trunks again.

DMTLL1MXUAAqvgC

The match between Jordan, Titus and Apollo vs. Gallows, Anderson and Elias is okay. There’s nothing to spectacular that makes you go OMG. They can’t all be over the top matches. It ended just as fast as it began with Apollo pinning Anderson.

DMTL1QyUIAALgQa

Asuka debuts Sunday at TLC against Emma. I am not quite sure why they have Emma do it. Unless she’s being pushed down to being a jobber. Which is quite possible. Because everyone knows they are going to push Asuka. They haven’t done a vignette for a superstar in a very long time so it has to be a sign that they are going to push her big time. 

DMTNEOpUEAAEu0o

Back stage segment with Alexa Bliss…. I am not a fan. I don’t know why. I am just not a fan. So now they’re going to have Alexa Bliss and Emma vs Mickie James and whoever she chooses.

DMTPhKkVoAA2env

Did Michael Cole really compare Emma to Enzo Amore? Uhm No. I like Enzo. And I know he’s that great of a wrestler and he talks to much. But did you ever think that you can get better at wrestling and they hired him for his talking skills? Well? I think he’s quite funny and entertaining.

Another video showing what we supposedly forgot about the week before…. Because we’re so dense that we forget what we watch in 6 or 7 days time. Only to have them come out, fight or talk about the same exact thing that we seen on the video. hmmm? Maybe I am just being too picky or too harsh. 

Does anyone really watch 205 live? I know I don’t. I spend my Tuesday nights watching Kevin Probably. I, however, do have to represent Cedric Alexander. He is from North Carolina 🙂 My home state. But like I said, they’re having another match with the same people after we just watched a video showing that they just wrestled. So what, is Jack going to win this time? I do like seeing Rich Swan tho. He is one of my favorite on 205 Live. At least he’s here to make sure that Jack doesn’t cheat and to even the odds. That’s nice of him.

So Alexander won again even tho Kendrick tried to cheat for Jack. Also, announcer. It was a singles competition…. Not a tag match. So when you announced that Cedric Alexander and Rich Swan won… you were wrong. Only Cedric will be in the books. Not Swan. He was just down there like any other manager. soo. :/

Unfortunately, we get to see MizTV. You know he’s doing his job well when so many people dislike him. Actually, I have never liked him. Even when he was on the Real World. I am just that picky of a person. I have been watching wrestling since I was a baby. I have always chose who I wanted and backed it up with what I felt. No one can tell you you’re wrong for feeling how you feel.

DMTUW3EU8AAO5jo

So Cesaro still has to wear a mouth guard creating a lisp because of Dean and Seth smashing his teeth further into his jaw. That’s both painful and annoying.  The You Look Stupid chants are back louder than ever over Sheamus mohawk. I don’t want to be mean because I had a speech impediment growing up. But Cesaro’s lisp sounds funny. The guest tonight on MizTv is Braun Strowman…. I honestly think he could use more mic training. I kind of just want to turn the channel. I am just mean tonight.

Hey Miz. They are not nostalgia if it’s just 3 years since they were together. The DX is nostalgia. Lex Luger and Sting as a tag team was nostalgic. Shield getting back together after just 3 years is not nostalgic. That was just a break. Thank you Kurt for telling Miz to shut up. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Miz talks too much.  Good job Kurt. So if Strowman wins tonight the PPV will be 5 vs 3 but if he loses tonight it will be 3 vs 3. Hahaha. I wonder what is going to happen.

I think Kurt is one of the smartest GM’s. Banning everyone not apart of the match’s from ringside. Smart. If not, there would be a lot of cheating from Miz’s side of things. As per usual.

This whole Bray Wyatt thing is stupid. Like Raw come one. You could have simply brought Nikki Cross up from NXT to play Abigail. It wouldn’t be the first time that the creative has made someone from NXT change characters. But of course Finn is going to give a Demonic message. He’s the Demon King. This whole thing between Balor and Wyatt is getting a little old. I think that Balor needs a bigger better push. Then again, I’m #BalorClub.

DMTUttsVwAMy7R3

Oh wow. Alicia Fox is in another match. Shocker. she hasn’t been in many story lines since she was just the girlfriend on 205 Live. But I already see her losing to Sasha Banks. I liked her on Total Divas but her persona on Raw is too much. She sounds annoying.  Surprisingly enough Alicia got Sasha covered. However, it looked like the ref was counting slow. hmm? Alicia taps again. Two weeks in the row. She made an excuse for last weeks  tapping out. I wonder what tonight’s excuse is going to be?

DMTVjLNVAAAyBoZ  DMTWYIeUMAETTh5

So Fox attacks Sasha backstage right after Sasha calls her crazy.. I do have to say Alicia’s kicks are weak as crap. And pushing a ref? Oh Alicia Don’t you know that’s a fine.

Yay It’s Enzo. Dear creative team. Can you please allow him to have a better promo then the one time he had to read off insults to all of the 205 Roster? Cause those insults were weak and not his best work. By the way Corey Graves. Enzo has a lot of fans. he doesn’t need you. I enjoy Enzo Amore. However, I think it is amazing that Kalisto got his turn to be a champ. Enzo calling Kurt a corrupt GM yet he is the one who ran his mouth and got the match moved up from the PPV to last Monday and didn’t stop running his mouth so it got turned into a lumber jack match. So. Cry me a river. 

DMTZQ-bW0AYTyp1

So Enzo got quite a few of the cruiserweights to attack Kalisto after talking about how he got money and it’s not dirty money…. So he paid them off? If Enzo removes Kalisto’s mask, I will lose all respect. You do not touch a luchador’s mask…ever. That is the biggest sign of disrespect there is. Thank goodness Mustafa Ali came out to help Kalisto. But that didn’t last long. We can definitely tell that that Enzo is a heel. There is no question about it. #HowYouDoin

DMTaLalW4AA1ErH

Yay its Tag team action. I honestly hope that they let Dean and Seth keep their titles. I also think it is great that they changed Seths music awhile ago. The Burn it Down is different. Just what he needs to show he is a different person.  Poor Cesaro. Having to be reminded of his teeth being shoved 5mm into his gum.

DMTarBoUQAAvuDW

It is so weird to see Seth and Dean wrestling in their old Shield gear. I mean it’s nice to see them back together. But I think I am going to miss Dean’s jeans and tank, being the crazy boy. I used to be a very big Cesaro fan. Even when he first got with Sheamus. However, I have slowly started to not. Just not. I don’t know. I haven’t even seen the Cesaro swing in so long. It’s kind of sad. I miss it. This is quite the interesting match.  They are two very strong, very capable tag teams. I wonder if the shield will get new gear. I mean since they are new shield and not the old shield. I mean they are back

I don’t know if it is me or if Dean isn’t as crazy as he usually is. It looks as if he’s second guessing things. Like not on full speed. The whole match looks like they’re not at their biggest potential. I don’t know. It feels like the match is full of missed potential. At least Dean and Seth are still the tag team champs. Thats the best thing.

DMTbmLjUQAolSkm

Now it’s time for Finn Balor to cut his promo to Bray Wyatt and his so called Sister Abigail. I will say again. I think they would have done better by bringing someone from NXT up to be Sister Abigail. It would’ve been a better message if Finn came out as the Demon King. Just saying. Either way. I cannot wait to hear Finn talk. I love listening to his accent.

DMThAy1V4AAGcpt

Well nice job production crew. Creating the new demon paint over fin’s face for the viewers at home. Even tho I am pretty sure the people there cannot see it. It’s nice for us. Just saying. I do, however, wish that they would end this Balor Wyatt feud. I have grown quite tired of it. We know he’s a demon and Wyatts a weirdo. but do you have to keep having the same feud over and over and over and over. I mean if you don’t have anyone new  for Balor to feud against, bring someone up from NXT. Just saying.

DMTiaN7WAAAj_b_

Twitter update: WWE posted that Alicia Fox was fined an undisclosed amount for pushing the ref. Well Duh. I thought everyone knew that you could not lay your hands on a ref. That’s common knowledge.

So now we’re going to have Emma and Alexa Bliss versus Mickie James and whoever she chose. By the way, I have grown very tired of Emma thinking she started the women’s revolution. I think not. Sit down sweetheart. I would laugh if she chose Asuka for her tag. But she’s not supposed to debut til Sunday so… Hmmm. She chose Bailey. This should be an interesting tag match.  With an interesting match with both sides holding their own, Mickie James covers Alexa Bliss for the 1…2….3… VICTORY.

DMTnCbkUEAA32In

Before commercial break we see Curtis Axel heading towards the Shield. Considering how loud he was huffing and puffing.. There is No way that the shield didn’t hear him coming.

Another backstage segment with Miz, the Bar and Strowman…. Kind of funny. Only Kind of.

DMTodUbU8AAUKnD

So looking at Finn Balor’s new make up got me thinking… It looks like WCW’s Halloween Havoc. I mean they’re bringing back two WCW things already.

Miz screaming who did this when he was already told that he went looking for the Shield. I mean really?

DMTpcjQVAAIP5WM

It is time for the final match of the night. A steel cage match between Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns. Everyone is supposedly banned from the ring. Let’s see how well this actually works.

The Miz telling Renee young that Curtis Axel was never his 5th man just gives room for the rumors that the 5th man could be Samoa Joe.

DMTq1QOVAAAE5yQ

So when Reigns comes out by himself, he comes down the ramp. However, when he comes out with the Shield he comes through the crowd. After hearing the interview that Reigns gave, I wouldn’t come down thru the crowd by myself either. Fans can be very grabby.  I bet Strowman isn’t mad that he’s still in a feud with Reigns. In an interview he gave, he couldn’t praise Reigns enough. He talked more about Reigns than he did himself.

DMTrJ9nUIAIQViY

Although everyone was banned from ringside the Miz decided to sit at the top of the ramp on commentary. Stating that we all need to hear his voice. I promise you we do not need to hear what you have to say.

So the Let’s go Cena/ Cena Sucks chants have now changed to Lets go Roman/ Roman sucks. interesting. Reigns needs the chants at the moment as Strowman throws him around like a rag doll. I think creative is going to let Strowman win so that Joe could have a reason to come back. The rumor has it that he’s coming back. Sheamus and Cesaro show up as Roman are climbing up the side of the cage. The Bar decide to climb up the cage towards Reigns when the remainder of the Shield decides to come out to help.

DMTtp1vVQAI9h3b.jpg

With all of this distraction going on, Strowman had the opportunity to get up and grab a hold of Roman suplexing him from the top of the cage. The HolyShit chants start. Because honestly that was pretty epic.

Unfortunately, the camera went off the main match and is following the other parts of the teams into the backstage area. Where is Kurt in all of this. He claimed that no one was to be at ringside and no one listened.  However, Miz did lock them outside.Might be the only good thing the Miz has ever done.

To be such a big guy, Strowman can really move. He climbs the side of the cage faster than I ever could.  It is kind of cool how the whole crowd does the OOOH AAAAH with Roman. But it does give the opponent the heads up to what’s coming. Roman only ever goes OOOOH AAAH when he’s going to do the arm thing.

Kane’s music….. really… That is interesting. Holy Shit. Kane is back. He’s coming for Reigns. He came thru the ring. It is extremely creepy when he does that. But I mean how is that possible? Like wouldn’t that be a soft spot for all the other matches? is it a trap door? How did we not catch up on it before? Did the people at the arena see Kane crawling under the ring during commercial break? So many questions run thru my head.  So if Kane’s back.. does that mean his campaign failed???

DMTvP3jVQAExEM6.jpg

With the assist from Kane, Strowman won. And I was wrong. Joe isn’t the 5th member. It is Kane. Interesting. I thought Kane was going to retire soon.

Doritos chicken casserole

I am all for the dinners that take less than an hour. Cook time and prep. Especially since I have dinner planmed a week in advanced. Every Sunday I plan the weeks meals and grocery shop. I find this way helps my anxiety. Trying to go about the day and then choose food kept me anxious all the time. Even tho there are those who don’t think SAHM (stay at home moms) do anything all day long. My day begins at 5 am and ends around 10 pm. With very little down time. 🙂 as I’m sure many other SAHM’s can relate.

So… Doritos chicken casserole!

What you will need:

1 lb chicken

1 bag egg noodles

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 can corn (drained)

1 can tomatoes (drained)

Taco seasoning

Cheese

Doritos (crushed)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

Cook chicken. This is such an easy recipe that you can cook the chicken anyway that you like. I just put it in the frying pan with some salt and pepper. (Non stick pan) its my favorite pan. Haha

Cook the egg noodles according to package.

While the chicken and egg noodles are cooking, put soup, corn, tomatoes and taco season in a bowl. Mix.

When the chicken is fine cooking, you will need to shred it. I just cut it into small pieces. Worked the same.

After cutting or shredding (really your preference) add it to the corn mix.

Mix it together and then add it to your egg noodles.

Place the new mixture into a baking dish.

Cover with cheese. Your preference on how much cheese you need.

Top with Doritos.

Bake until cheese is nice and bubbly. 🙂

Although it really doesn’t look pretty and I’m sure Gordon Ramsay would bash it on twitter hahaha it tasted pretty good. My toddler couldn’t get enough. My other daughter, well shes picky. (I’m working on that)

Anxiety…it’s a battle

quotes-One-of-the-most-frus

I typically scroll thru pinterest as I’m waiting in line to get the kids out of school and I pass by some of these images. I think to myself…these are perfect examples. I can use these to write about. To break the stigma of anxiety. It seems like everyone is so fast to tell you to calm down. It’s all in your head. Well they’re right. It is in your head. As in a chemical imbalance. It is nothing you have done. So please don’t blane yourself.

I freak out a lot. It use to be more verbal. But now I usually have this argument in my head. I have spent many conversations with people telling me how to act or what to do so I don’t have an attack. Let me tell you they’re crap.

A couple years ago I was in a car accident. Some idiot decided not to stop at the red light and hit the back of my car and a few others. It was awful.

As I was sitting in the ambulance, heading to the hospital, the emt told me to calm down. She was working on the other woman in the ambulance who had neck pain and saw me hyperventilating. I did what she said to do with my breathing. Even tho I told her it would make things worse. Wanna know what happened? My blood pressure went thru the roof. So I went back to my hyperventilating until I was able to cope.

I have been dealing with anxiety for over 10 years. I’ve only been diagnosed ten years ago but I know its been longer. There are some things that I’ve suppressed. That I’ve coped with. Things that still bother me today but I try my best not to think about. Like the me too movement on social media. I have dealt with things of that nature at a very young age. It took over ten years to even talk about it. And sometimes I feel like my family forgot or thinks I made it up.

Anxiety will get you like that. When you think you’ve forgotten, its right there to remind you of the things that have happened and what can happen.

If you have anxiety or depression or any mental illness, please feel free to comment. I promise I will not judge. I will be as I’ve always tried to be an open ear. We need to break the stigma on mental illness and we can! One discussion at a time

Lasagna or soup….. lasagna soup

So my husband likes lasagna but I hate dealing with the noodles. So a few months back, ok more than a few, I read about this lasagna soup. It sounded good so I wanted to try it. Unfortunately, I have a huge issue with following recipes to the T.

I didn’t get the meat in the photo because I was already cooking it. I tend to like dinner done by 6 do my kid eats by 6 and can have shower by 7 bed before 9.

What do you need:

1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/2 cup of your favorite cheese blend (I like fiesta blend)

2 jars marinara sauce

Garlic

Salt/pepper to taste

Lasagna noodles

Beef broth

Brown the ground beef and garlic. Drain. Return to pan.

 

Add beef broth and both jars of sauce. I usually add a little water to the jars, shake then pour in the pan. That way no sauce is wasted.

Add cheese and lasagna noodles as well as seasonings. Now all you got to do is stir occasionally until the noodles are done. Quick one pot meal that is so good I don’t have any left over….Thats also why I didn’t get a photo of the finished project

Hot dog chili casserole

There are some nights where you’re just too darn exhausted to cook. Well tonight was that night. So I pulled out this casserole.

Now lets just say today has been the day that I get into a lot of accidents. This morning while changing my daughter I turned backwards to grab the wipes and pulled the muscle thats on the collar bone. Ouch. Then I made the mistake of picking on my brother for his knee. Karma. What did I do? I slipped on some water and hit my knee on a door frame….lesson to learn…don’t pick on someones pain.

What are you going to need:

1 pack hotdogs

2 cans chili

1 can refrigerated biscuits

1 cup cheese

And…

One big appetite

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Cut the hotdogs into slices or chunks. Totally depends on how big you want them.

Next add your cans of chili and stir together.

Cut your biscuits into chunks. You could tear them but I cut them. Its a texture thing for me I don’t like mushy on my hands. I know. Im weird.

Add your biscuits to the chili

Now you want to top with cheese.

Bake until the biscuits are no longer gooey. When its all done you’ll have a quick dump and bake casserole. Yummy

Japanese take out anyone??

So this is a late post of what we had for dinner last night. In our town we have this amazing place called Shotos. However, I am trying to pull my family into eating at home more than eating out. Not only is it healthier, its also cheaper.

What you will need:

Instant rice (I use the boil in bag because I suck at making rice)

1 lb chicken cut into cubes or small pieces

Teriyaki sauce

About 4 tbs Butter (not pictured cause I forgot)

Carrots (I used two bags because I end up feeding a lot of people)

1 cup brown sugar

Aluminum baking pans (I got mine from Sam’s. I got 36 for about 9 dollars. Score!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Cut your chicken. I always use boneless chicken breast tenders. I usually go to the meat market every two months and buy big packs which I section off into what I need. End up being a little over a pound per bag. I got enough meat to cook for two months for $206 thats really not bad.

Once you have cut your chicken, place it into the baking pan. Here you can season it if you like. I usually do salt and pepper for this dish. Now you need to put teriyaki sauce on the chicken. Mix it in good.

Next I added the rice and just enough water to cover it. About 1 and a half cups. Cover with tin foil and place in the oven. This will cook between 45 to 60 mins.

Next put your carrots into a seperate baking dish. Add the butter and brown sugar. Then put about 1/2 cup of water. Cover with tin foil and place in the oven. This will cook for about 30 to 45 minutes.

I forgot to take an after shot of what it all looked like because it didn’t stay very long. There was no left overs.

We also put this sauce on it call Yum Yum sauce. It is quite amazing. If you can find it in your local store, I suggest buying it.

Grey’s Anatomy: Ain’t that a kick in the head October 12, 2017

Amelia shaving her hair is a sad moment.  I cannot help but thinking about Once upon a time when Amelia’s doctor. Hades is going to perform surgery on Amelia.

Hades_the_God_of_the_Underworld

I love how Amelia has the entire surgical team do the superwoman pose with her. The whole beginning of this episode makes you want to cry.

Oh no, not new interns. Fabulous, the first intern interviewee is talking to himself. I am glad that Webber and Bailey passed on him.  I love that April is in the chapel praying that she doesn’t have to unplug Amelia.

Is it safe for Hades to be singing while performing surgery??? Thank goodness Amelia woke up. Oh no, shes talking inside her head. I’m getting big Derek flashbacks. How do they expect her to talk if she has a tube down her throat?? They cannot let another Shepherd die. However, love how Meredith is really there for her sister.

The second interviewee for the intern job provided a little too much information. I almost forgot that Harper Avery passed on the last episode.  Catherine Avery is back again. Jackson and Catherine get back from the funeral of Harper Avery.

DL-h68cVQAADjyu

I still cannot believe the glances that Avery and Pierce pass between each other. They are technically step siblings. (I heard that they’re going to talk about the step sibling thing. Just waiting to see when.) Meredith has to ask Jackson if it’s okay to take his name off of Megan Hunt’s surgery so that she could be considered for a Harper Avery award.

Deluca is working with Amelia. Performing the routine that Amelia requires after brain surgery so that they recover faster. Hades doesn’t like that, at all. However, Deluca stands his ground and get Amelia to the chair.

Meredith and Megan talk about Riggs. It’s funny how Meredith is stuck in another triangle.

I love how Amelia is so adamant on not taking any drugs considering she’s a recovering addict. Webber completely understands. But if it could help her recover, shouldn’t she take them? I understand that she could slip back into old habits. However, if she has a good support team couldn’t they give her something like tylenol?

Post Op day 2. They’re all talking about Amelia and what the tumor has caused like leaving her life in LA. Amelia started talking. Yay! Except it’s in French. Interesting.

Grey Sloan doesn’t need to have an Instagram ‘star’. Sorry lady. Not in this hospital. Aww Ben is sleeping in the hospital.

“You can’t help him if you’re dead” -Meredith Grey. Which is very true. Megan desperately wants to get back to her son but she has an infection. With transplants the risk of rejection is quite high.

I do enjoy the friendship between April and Arizona. I also feel bad that April moved out of Jackson’s house because the way they were living was painful to her.

DL-k5biVAAA2Q4h

“Would you keep it down”. Amelia finally speaks English. Thank goodness. Thank you Shonda for not killing Amelia. Oh no… She forgot that Derek died. This is going to bring up an all new kind of hurt. Really Shonda. I just thanked you for allowing her to live but you make her forget about Derek’s death. You are a cruel cruel woman.

“You will be a surgeon again.” And I think the fans have rejoiced.  Is Riggs really trying to get Megan’s son for a fake clinical trial? Smart! I think that this grand gesture is so sweet.

DL-lfgoV4AI82ZL

These intern interviews are something else. If you cannot touch your eyeball with your finger how are you going to touch all of the ooey gooey stuff inside the human body.

This is going to be awkward. Catherine, Webber, Jackson and Maggie having dinner together. The small talk is painful to watch. Do not put wine in Maggies mouth, bad things could happen. A quarter of a billion dollars….. wow!!! Jaw meet floor. How do you not want a quarter of a billion dollars???

Uhm Maggie….he already bought a hospital…. And please, you’re talking too much. This is the problem with drinking too much wine.

DL-n_84U8AE3VGm

“Do you know who the President is?” “I wish I didn’t”  Amelia is BACK!

Oh no. Wilson can’t be apart of the paper being submitted for the Harper Avery award. I am not looking forward to her psycho husband. And the fact that its the nice guy from Glee.

Here’s the hint of Ben leaving the show for the spin off show. That’s gonna be interesting.

DL-pBtEUQAEmX13

Meredith trying to help Riggs get the kid to Megan is amazing.  Sometimes you forget how bad ass Meredith is. I cannot believe Riggs pulled it off.

DL-pcyVXkAE3NLM

“I don’t want you to ruin my work” Way to go Meredith and Riggs. Ya’ll made a mom happy. Owen finally gets to meet his nephew. This is such a heartwarming scene.

Was Meredith looking up like looking up to Derek? Why Shonda? Why do you have to keep mentioning Derek? That’s just torture.

DL-rrm2W4AAX5iI

Thank you Catherine for bringing up the fact that they’re step siblings. Finally! Someone said it.  I like jealous Richard.

Its cute but sad that Amelia is trying to let Owen go. Owen is such a good guy. Even though he did kiss Teddy.  Which is bringing Christina memories up from when he cheated on her.

I love any episode that has Harriet. Sofia’s coming home. Yay! Now if we could only get a Torres appearance.

DL-tumVWsAA3dut

Amelia’s going home. Maybe there’s hope for them yet. And now we seriously have to wait 2 weeks before Grey’s is back. That is so unfair
