The One Where Lulabelle Makes Predictions for 2018 (along with witty commentary on each prediction) ……

When I was younger, my family would sit down once a year after Christmas and make some predictions about the new year. So as today is the first day of 2018 (or it was when I started this adventure in mental time travel), I thought I’d make some predictions about the coming year. Enjoy! 🙂

Trump will say or tweet something controversial

I will drink at least one glass of wine (Yeah, by the way, some of these are going to be no-brainers. 😉 Buckle up.)

I will have mastered the art of red lipstick (In case anyone thought my Miranda Sings Halloween costume was as good as it was going to get.)

Joe Biden will announce his plans to run for president in 2020 (I have mixed feelings within my body about this one, but there it is.)

Tonya Harding will be reinstated into the US Figure Skating Association (Honestly it just makes sense. As time passes, it seems as though she really did have nothing to do with the attack on Nancy Kerrigan.)

Oreo will debut a new flavor (I feel like after releasing flavors like Kettle Corn and Fruity Pebbles, things can only get better from here. I hope. Please, Jesus, make it so. We’ve just been through too much this year for *KETTLE CORN Oreos to be the end of the road.)

And those are all my predictions for 2018. Do you think I missed any? Let me know in the comment section.

Happy New Year!!

*So yeah, I’ve never had Kettle Corn Oreos, I just can’t imagine they would be any good. But just my luck they are probably amazing and likely taste like angel clouds and unicorn farts (which taste like Skittles. Duh. 😉 )

Lulabelle Cooks Without A Net (YouTuber Edition): Honey Mustard Chicken……

(Today’s entry is based off of a recipe I found online by YouTuber Colleen Ballinger–AKA Miranda Sings. You can find the original recipe here)

Last night I tried a recipe I found on Colleen Ballinger’s YouTube channel for Honey Mustard chicken. The original recipe called for the chicken to be marinated in the honey mustard sauce, but since it’s us and we didn’t have much time last night, I decided to make the sauce be more of a dipping condiment.

Here are the ingredients you are gonna need:

The mason jar on the far left is filled with hot pepper flakes. HPF don’t appear in the original recipe, but we enjoy heat so I threw some in.

Start with one cup mustard and honey. Mix together and add in a shake of salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon of curry. Mix well and add in garlic and HPF if you want. Adjust all ingredients to your liking.

After making this sauce I wondered if it would go well with crackers as I’ve dipped crackers in hot mustard before and it was delicious.

This mustard sauce was no different! It goes well with chicken and crackers and I bet it would also go well with pretzels as a lite snack.

Bon-Appetite’ Y’all!
