Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Cups

I have a tendency to obsess over things. And whatever my current obsession is always seems to keep bubbling up in life. Like, for example, buffalo chicken. I forgot how much I loved it and then have made four different buffalo dishes in the last month because I can’t get enough. But I’m not talking about buffalo chicken right now.

I’m currently obsessing over Macy Beckett’s Make You Remember.  I downed that book in about a day and a half and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I’m such a sucker for a first-love-reunited story. But as satisfying as the story was, I can’t wait for the next in the series. Can’t. Wait. Alex and Ella-Claire were teased throughout the book and I need to know how things will go with them. NEED. It’s probably a little sad how much time I’ve spent thinking about them.

What does that have to do with this post? Well, when I was getting ready to make this, I realized the recipe was on a blog called Ella Claire. Seriously. This series is now even influencing my recipe choices! Is that funny? Or sad? I haven’t decided.
