Jessica can be described as the ultimate master manipulator and stereotypical popular girl without a heart. As I re-read this book I am reminded of how much these books shape my world view of what high-school was supposed to be all about.
Of course once I finally made it to high-school I realized it wasn’t filled with half the amount of drama that was in this series.
The drama in the first book of the series was better than any real housewives episode. This book was filled with revenge, jealousy, adultery, and even a court battle. I read this in a day and enjoyed every minute of it.
Jessica the superficial twin really tried my nerves with her selfish manipulative behavior. She was really an over the top example of what teens girl should not be like (think Lindsey Lohan).
It was nice to see Elizabeth sort of stick up for herself in the end but she could have done better then just a minor water dunk. Her twin deserved a stiff smack in the face.
I have been on a big Asian kick this week. Tonight I made this ginger salmon that was to die for!! You should try it and let me know how it tastes.
4 salmon filets
Asian veggie mix(your choice)
3tbsp. Olive oil
3 caps full of ginger
* these items to your own taste and flavor pallet*
Korean stir fry sauce
1. Spray Pan with Pam and pour in olive oil
2. Turn burner to medium add salmon and all other spices and sauces
3. Let simmer turning fish when needed until the filets are done and flakey
4. Remove fish leaving sauce mixture in the heated pan
5. Add veggie mix to the pan and mingle it with the sauce adding more sauces if needed
6. Let veggies simmer until done then remove pan from the burner and enjoy!!
1lb ground turkey
Bag of assorted mini peppers chopped up
1 large onion
1 pound of chicken tenderloins chopped up
McCormick chili seasoning packs (2)
2tblsp red pepper
1 tblsp garlic salt
2 cans organic diced tomato
1 can tomato paste
1. Cook chicken in a skillet
2. Brown and drain ground turkey
3. Combine vegetables, meat, seasonings, and tomato products into crockpot along with 1/2 cup of water
4. Cook for 2-3 hours storing occasionally until vegetables are tender
4 Salmon Filets
1 red onion(chopped)
2 zucchini (sliced)
3/4 cups of teriyaki Sauce
Dash of salt and pepper to taste
I pre-make this and store it in a plastic bag inside our freezer until I am ready to cook it. You can also make it fresh. Coat a large non stick pan with Pam. Turn the burner on medium high and pour in the teriyaki sauce. Place in the salmon fillets then sprinkle them with the salt and pepper. Sear the fish for about 4 minutes then pour in your veggies. Let it cook rotating the ingredients around every 2 minutes or so until the fish is fully cooked and the veggies are tender.
FYI- if you are going to freeze it to cook later you would simply place all the ingredients into a freezer bag and when you are ready to cook it let it thaw out. Place all the thawed ingredients into a pan that has been coated with Pam.
