Here are some random things I have been thinking lately:

1. I’m slightly obsessed with re-watching 30 Rock.

2. I think I very well could be best friends with Mindy Kaling. But I really need to think of a way to lure her into meeting me. Wait. Maybe friendships shouldn’t start off with luring….

3. Candice Cameron Bure is my current favorite celebrity to follow on Instagram. How is it possible for D.J. Tanner to have 3 children?

4.  I have been really wanting to watch Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead but I cannot buy it from Amazon {in streaming form} and refuse to buy DVD’s since it seems so 2000. I realize this is a first world problem but seriously, I really want to hear “I’m right on top of that Rose!”

5. I still don’t understand that picture floating around Facebook where they talk about the “new” common core math. I have read it about 20 times and I just don’t get it.

6. I have been getting these shellac manicures and I’m pretty sure my husband is ready to cut my nails while I’m sleeping because I’m always clicking them on the table. I have always had short nails so the second I get a nail I tap, tap, tap away.

7. I have such a weird craving for Polar Eggnog Seltzer that if they don’t bring it back this year I’m debating blasting them on Twitter all winter long.

8. Speaking of winter – Hobby Lobby has Christmas stuff in the stores. Seriously Hobby Lobby?  Seriously?

9. Facebook makes it really hard to daydream about impressing your old classmates when your friends with all of them on FB. Instead I’m neurotically checking my tagged pictures to make sure I don’t look like a beast. I don’t want my old HS crush to see me looking like a hot mess.

10. I had something else written here but deleted it for fear of backlash. You should know that I wrote this post on Benadryl.

    I only liked the breast when I was a kid. Now my husband and I fight over the thighs if I make a whole chicken. We would be fighting over all of your chicken thighs, too. The flavor in this recipe is fantastic.

    These chicken thighs looks so flavorful. I imagine the flavor is just bursting though. Looks that way from the pretty pics!

    I’m always looking for new ways to cook up chicken thighs (a staple in our house) and the spices on this recipe sound insanely good!

    I feel like you are the chicken recipe master; you always have the best recipes and these cilantro lime thighs are no exception.

    Dark meat really does have more flavor. I love that it’s flavored with cilantro and lime (my favorite) and that crispy skin looks incredible!

    There are people who hate chicken skin?! I cannot even understand. And I agree. Dark meat is wayyyyyyy better.

    I love chicken thighs. I am more of a dark meat kind of girl so they just work better for me. I love that dark, crispy skin you got on there and I bet these flavors are perfect together. Must make!!

    A lover of chicken thighs and diamonds. We would get along well, girl! I love the crust that you created on this chicken by putting it in the skillet first. Your presentation is perfection!

    I’m obsessed with chicken thighs! I don’t think I’ve seen them any crispier! So perfect!

    Meg @ With Salt and Wit — November 11, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    Can we still be friends even though I don’t like the skin? Pretty please? Its a texture thing…I promise!

    Lora @cakeduchess — November 11, 2015 at 8:42 pm

    Cilantro and lime…how fabulous! And yes to the crispy skin (we can still be friend :)). Great recipe, Brandy.

    I’m gradually warming up to the dark meat. Recipes like this help! Pinning to my “recipes to try” board.

    I used to hate the dark meat – but now, I’m all over it!! WHY did I take so long to come around?! And these look insane!

    How did you get those gorgeous crispy skins! So want to bite into those right now!

    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — November 12, 2015 at 4:59 am

    A diamond blog would be so lame. I wonder if those exist. And wow… I can’t believe how crisp the skin got! I need to try these. I like how you addressed the cilantro haters in your post. I bet you’re still going to get comments about that and what to sub for the lime juice from a citrus-juice hater. 😀

    Dark meat chicken for the win! The cilantro and lime are just icing on the cake.

    Oh my gosh – that skin is the bomb (yeah I said it)! You know what’s funny? If I’d let her, my daughter would eat ONLY the skin and leave the meat for somebody else. She’s a skin thief when it comes to poultry…gotta have your fork poised and ready lest you lose it at Thanksgiving… 😉

    I would happily trade out the chicken breasts for dark meat any day of the week. The golden crust on these is gorgeous!

    I always had to fight with my dad for dark chicken meat — by far the best, I totally agree! These chicken thighs look fabulous. I love the crispy skin – yum! I SO want to take a bite!!

    A diamond blog…I could get behind THAT! Just look at your crust….oh! Love the flavors, love the look. You nailed it!
