My January Favorites

Hello beautiful reader,

Happy new year to those I have yet to speak to for the new year. Today, I come bearing gifts in the form of recommendations!

  • Food
    • Homemade Breakfast Sandwich
      • homemade biscuit
      • homemade turkey sausage
      • eggs over-easy (as well-done as you’d prefer)
      • spinach sautéed with feta cheese and onions, seasoned to taste (dare I say, the secret ingredient)
      • mayo and/or avocado
      • mustard
      • hot sauce (optional, but recommended)
    • Homemade Turkey Burger
      • pretzel hamburger buns
      • homemade turkey patty
      • spinach sautéed with feta cheese and onions, seasoned to taste (AGAIN, dare I say, the secret ingredient)
      • mayo and/or avocado
      • mustard
      • hot sauce (yep. optional, but recommended)
      • ketchup
    • Homemade Spanakopita
      • puff pastry dough
      • spinach sautéed with feta cheese and onions, seasoned to taste (okay, I’m seeing a pattern here.)

Basically, my food favorite is sautéed spinach and feta cheese. You can put it on most things. Thank me later.

  • Film (TV and Movies)
    • TV
      • Once Upon a Time (a rewatch) – 4/5 stars
        • As much as I have recommended this show to my parents over the years, neither of them had watched this show prior to quarantine. But as I’m sure many of you know, there is only so much to binge-watch until you finally happen upon that show you said you’d probably never watch. They loved it by the way.
        • Representation Check: Um. As the show goes on and as the writers expand the show’s world, we get more diversity. Be patient with this one.
      • Bridgerton – 4/5 stars
        • This show is doing something different and doing it pretty well. If you have yet to watch Bridgerton, I highly recommend doing so. 1 season, 8 episodes, that’s less than a day’s worth of binging!
        • Representation Check: It’s set in the regency era, but utilizes historical fiction to have quite a diverse cast, which, of course, I appreciated. Were there some slightly problematic undertones regarding colorism? Sure. However, all in all, I really appreciated the representation in this show. And the fact that Bridgerton just became Netflix’s most-watched series ever feels like a step forward in proving that viewers actually want to see diversity on screen.
    • Movies
      • The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – 5/5 stars
        • Comedic gold and a pretty fun spy movie too.
        • Representation Check: I’ll give them a pass because it’s set in 1960’s Europe during The Cold War and…yeah. Still a great movie though.
  • Music
    • The Olivia/Sofia situation:
    • Why Don’t We (the band) came out with a new album this month. Some of my favorite songs from it are:
    • PRETTYMUCH (the band) also dropped an EP this month. My favorite songs from it are:

I’d love to know what your December/January favorites were. Let me know in the comments!

Have a lovely day!

With love,

M
