It is winter here in MN so that means all the grills have been tucked away and we will be hibernating until May of 2019. Goodbye sunshine and warmth. Bring on cold the faces, ears and icicles for feet!

For some people winter means skiing,building snowmen and ice fishing. Not me. No way are you getting this sweet summer child to go out on the ice to fish! The fish I get at whole foods is just as good for me!

But I do love going to the movies in the winter. I mean it is still a fortune to buy a bag of popcorn and a water but at least its inside where it is warm.

Speaking of movies, I took my monster and her gang to go see The Hate U Give. We both read the book and wanted to see that movie. I strongly believe in reading the book first before seeing the movie. My thoughts on the movie…

Interesting? It told the view point of a police officer, a black police officer no less. But it also showed the point of the witness. I don’t want to give it away and ruin it for those of you who have yet to see it. What I took away from it…my monster wants to protest, and I admire her for that, but at the same time as a parent I know that protesting can get violent and she could get hurt. That is my issue. Have a voice but it must be peaceful.

The movie did not bash the police or the victim so don’t go see the movie with that in your mind. Be open minded. Try to look at both sides.

And while you are doing that, eat some of these sweet, spicy sticky drumsticks! These were so easy to make and I literally popped it in the oven and that is lunch all week for me. Now if you guys missed me…I will be raking leaves.
