Terminator Genisys

Pictured:  Scenes from Genisys/Arnold Schwarzenegger VAV!/August 2, 2015/Contributed by Star in her Eyes This summer, old franchises are being brought back with a vengeance. Earlier this summer dinosaurs came back to haunt our nightmares, and now the robots are back and they want the human race dead. Both a reboot and a continuation of the original Terminator story, Genisys, focuses on what happens when we change our own time lines and that dispels the myth of fate. In the future, humans are struggling in the War Against the Machines, but John Connor, armed with knowledge of the future, can finally turn the tide. But as always, plans go awry and Kyle Reese must travel to the past to save John's mother from the Terminator that has been sent to kill her. What Kyle finds isn't the world he expected because the past has been rewritten.

BACON AND AVOCADO PASTA SALAD RECIPE

  VAV!/July 26, 2015/Contributed by Bobby of the Blog Chef During the summer a good macaroni salad recipe is the perfect side dish to serve with almost any type of dinner. This bacon and avocado pasta salad has a little different flavor than you would find in the average pasta salad. It gets most of this flavor because of the dressing. The dressing combines ingredients such as mayonnaise, thyme, lemon zest and lemon juice to create a rather unique flavor. This recipe does require a little bit of prep work but it is very easy to prepare. You can serve this as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak or even serve it as the main course. Enjoy. Adapted from damn delicious. 1/3 cup olive oil Cooking Instructions:Step 1: To prepare the dressing- in a food processor combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn the blender on and add the olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified. Set aside.Step 2: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.Step 3: Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until brown and crisp (about 6-8 minutes). Drain on a plate lined with a paper towel.Step 4: In a large bowl combine the pasta, avocado, bacon, lemon-thyme dressing, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve right away and garnish with fresh thyme.(Makes 4 Servings)
