Yes, I'm guilty. I got the two free pieces of chicken that El Pollo Loco had for their promotion this past Tuesday. I missed the free chicken from KFC on Monday and the free Baskin Robbins Scoop on Sunday, so I wouldn't going to miss this. I have to admit that I did liked it. (*hangs head down low*) Finger lickin' good! Oh, wrong place. Besides, it was free. Who wouldn't pass that up? The only thing I paid for was my drink and that was around a buck.
It was one thigh and a leg a couple of flour tortillas. You could order a side of rice and beans, but you'd had to pay for those. I'm happy with just the chicken and salsa. That thigh piece was pretty large, too. Aside from me slightly burning my fingers as it was still "fresh off the grill" hot, I got a good meal. (Or maybe I was just hungry.)
This week Teresa from A Blog About Food had passed along this award to me and I'm honored to be one of the recipients. It's called the Premio Meme award. Along with the award I'm supposed to list seven things about my personality, then pick seven bloggers to pass this award to.
Well...here's a little something for you all to know me a little better.
1 Introvert - I'm a really shy and quiet person. I value solitude when I can find it. I'm not anti-social. It's quite the opposite really. It just takes me a while to find my barrings.
2 Loving - I'm very much a family and friends person. They're the ones that keep me from getting a big head and I cherish every moment I have with them.
3 Ambitious - I've got ideas and plans. I'll stop at nothing to get those accomplished.
4 Altuistic - I tend to worry more about those around me than I do for myself.
5 Easy-going - I don't like drama. Period!
6 Adventurous - I'm a curious soul wandering through a big world and there's a lot of adventures to be had.
7 Stubborn - I do have my moments, but it's not too often. I'm willing to compromise, if needed.
There you go... seven things. Now for the recipients of this award. The following are just some of the wonderful foodies I follow. Check them out as well as so many others in the blogroll on the sidebar. In no particular order:
Alice at Savory Sweet Life
Jen at My Kitchen Addiction
Kelly at Evil Shenanigans
Pam at For The Love of Cooking
Natasha at 5 Star Foodie
Reeni at Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice
Sophia at Burp & Slurp
Lastly, as many of you readers may know, my other day job involves the imaginary world of movies. Don't worry this ties into food. So when something comes along that brings together two of my passions in life, it's like a kid in a candy store moment.
Julie & Julia (IMDB)
Based on the book by Julie Powell. Directed by Nora Ephron (Sleepless In Seattle/Silkwood) Starring Meryl Streep as non other than Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie Powell.
Synopsis from IMDB: The film follows Powell, a government employee who decides to cook her way through legendary cook Julia Child's classic cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in one year's time out of her small Queens kitchen.

The movie looks promising. Haven't read the book yet, but I will. Opens this coming August. I've included the trailer below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!!
