Greek Pasta

Great use of rotisserie chicken!

2 cups uncooked penne pasta
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 can (14-1/2 oz) chicken broth
3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1 jar (7-1/2 oz) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/3 cup sliced pitted Greek olives
2 tbsp minced fresh parsley

Cook pasta according to package directions. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes until thickened. Stir in chicken, artichoke hearts, cheese, tomatoes and olives. Drain pasta; stir into the pan. Broil 3-4 inches from the heat for 5-7 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley.

Azalea Something, Right?

A contestant on Jeopardy committed a hip-hop faux pas, confusing Azealia Banks with Iggy Azalea.

 

Ordinarily, that wouldn't be a big deal. Easy enough to confuse them based on the common-sounding names.

Except the two are sworn enemies. Maybe that's a bit extreme.

Let's just say they don't like each other much.

At all...

The contestant, Nicholas Berube, must have felt bad about it, because he created a Twitter account and used his first tweet to apologize.

Tell Us What You Really Mean

The Dropkick Murphys, the Irish punk rock band out of Boston, made their feelings very clear on Twitter yesterday.

Wisconsin's governor, Scott Walker, used one of their songs, "I'm Shipping Up to Boston," as his introduction music at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday.

And they simply do not want him to do that.

Ever again.

Because they "literally hate" him.

But their tweeted message at least expressed a little love for the guy, so maybe they're just busting his chops... Right?

Fashion Statement or Fashion Victim

Olivia Culpo, who represented the USA in the Miss Universe Pageant in 2012 and who took home the crown, was in attendance for the 2015 pageant this weekend.

She was on the arm of her boyfriend, singer Nick Jonas, and he posted this picture to his Instagram page of the two of them together.

The picture - and others like it of Olivia - have set the internet on fire.

Well, sort of. Entertainment Weekly calls it the "most cleavage-baring dress we've ever seen."

Others are wondering how the dress is able, seemingly, to dey the law of gravity.

The Daily Mail in London says that Olivia was "a stand out donning a strapless frock that left many jaws on the floor."

Personally, I think like she's lucky to have survived that encounter with the shredder...

Best No School Announcement Ever!

Moses Brown is a college prep school in Providence, Rhode Island.

Yesterday, as Blizzard Juno bore down on the Northeast, promising up to two feet of snow and more for the region, MB's Head of School, Matt Glendinning, announced that there would be no school today.

But he didn't just call the local radio and TV stations.

He went all out and produced a no school announcement to beat all no school announcements, and posted it to the school's YouTube account.

To the tune of "Let It Go," ladies and gentlemen, I give you "School Is Closed!"

Simply Woww...

Some people are meant to have children.

And then there's JWoww - aka, Jenni Farley, Snooki's Jersey Shore pal.

Last week, she and her husband thought it would be cute to figure out which of them their daughter Meilani more closely resembled.

So the hubby gave Meilani a mohawk, a muscle shirt and a beard that seems to be spaghetti sauce smeared all over her face, and took her picture.

JWoww decided to give Meilani hair extensions and a pair of sunglasses. Oh, and a set of boobs. Picture taken.

Then both were posted on JWoww's blog.

Twenty years from now, when Meilani writes her tell-all book, this will be chapter 1, without a doubt!

Meanwhile, you can be sure JWoww and her hubby are in the running for Parents of the Year!

The Winner of Super Bowl XLIX is...

For the 12th year in a row, the folks at EA Sports - makers of the Madden NFL video games - have played out the Super Bowl on their game.

They plugged in the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, and the winner is...

Well, maybe I shouldnt say. Why spoil the fun?

Watch the highlights and game summary, if you like.

Or, just wait until this Sunday for the real deal.

All too silly for you? Consider this. In the past 11 years, the Madden NFL team has gotten the outcome right 8 times...
