This month’s recipe is dedicated to the people practicing physical-distancing during the great Coronavirus crisis of 2020. Panic buying due to the government’s request for multi-week self-quarantine has rendered the store shelves nearly empty, with eggs being one of the hardest items to find. So, when I came across the recipe over at Mommy’s Home Cooking for Easy Eggless Halloween Cookies I knew I had to share it.
Today we celebrate Women in Horror, with a tribute to a legendary queen of horror, Sigourney Weaver, star of enduring Alien franchise.
In Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien, Sigourney relished the chance to bring a smart, no-nonsense, powerful leader to movie audiences during a time when women yearned to see a strong female presence on the big screen. Lt. Ellen Ripley proved to be way more than just the final girl, and in the 1986 sequel Aliens, Sigourney continued to portray Ripley, this time as a badass survivor and the voice of reason in this crazy new world. In her final action-packed showdown with the queen mother of all Xenomorphs, Ripley emerged as one of the greatest female kickass heroes on film, period.
January dragged by like a zombie with no legs. While not quite on par with the disastrous January 2016, when we lost our beloved David Bowie and Alan Rickman, this month was a cacophony of leftover holiday vibes, hopeful optimism, failed resolutions, global despair, and finally, the tragedy of losing another global icon, former L.A. Lakers Kobe Bryant.
I’m not ready to give up on 2020 and you shouldn’t be either! Despite all the pink, February is a perfectly good month for Halloween fans to hijack, and what better way to usher in the month of unrequited love than with the Superbowl! Somebody is gonna go home in tears. Between losing to the Vegas odds and those tearjerker Budweisser commercials, you’re gonna need some comfort food, and no decent Superbowl party would be caught dead without a good taco dip to catch our tears. So, when I found this recipe over at The Tipsy Housewife for a festive Halloween Taco dip, I knew the lunar new year has not forsaken us.
Bookmark this one, my creepy friends, you’re gonna use it again in October.
