Rotisserie Chicken Nachos #SundaySupper

Rotisserie Chicken Nachos

Have you watched 13 Reasons Why?  I just finished it Friday night and I have a few thoughts I’d like to share.  If you’re just here for the recipe, scroll down.  It’s tasty, gluten free, and crazy easy to make.  Otherwise, let’s dive right in.

First of all, 13 Reasons Why is good.  It’s just good TV – great actors, high production value, a story that keeps you interested.  It has all the ingredients a good TV show should have and even better you can watch all 13 episodes now.

It’s received a lot of criticism for glamourizing suicide, but I don’t get that.  As someone who relates to Hannah, the main character, perhaps a little more than I would like, I feel like I can be confident when I say it does not glamourize suicide.

While I relate to her loneliness and unanswered cries for help, friendship, someone to give a shit, I don’t relate to the far more violent, impossible to deal with events that eventually lead her to end her life.  I won’t go into detail in case you haven’t watched yet, but I would not want to be in her shoes, yet I am sure there are some young girls out there who are.

Rotisserie Chicken Nachos

Instead of being criticized as promoting suicide, the series should be lauded for trying to open people’s eyes.  If you relate to Hannah, you hope desperately that it will make someone open their eyes and see you.  If you don’t relate to her, then you should know that there are other people who you affect in ways you might not realize.  Ways that are changing their lives for the worse, perhaps.  And you can change that.

The show isn’t going to cause a wave of suicide.  The scene when she finally kills herself made me cringe and cry, not smile and aspire to be like her.  Instead, it should cause a wave of kindness and understanding that stops suicides.  I think that’s what the creators of the show and Jay Asher, who wrote the book that I read about ten years ago, were intending.

To help people.  To stop suicides.  To promote kindness.  To cause someone to act to help another human being instead of to hurt them.  To understand that we all have issues and quirks, that we’re all weird.  There’s no such thing as normal.  And who would want to be something as mundane as normal anyway?  We all want to be loved and listened to.  We don’t want to be treated like trash.  We just want a chance to be happy and live our best lives.

Most of all, we don’t want to end up like Hannah for a variety of reasons.  I like to think that the show might save some lives and really make a difference.  Maybe there should be more shows like it to demonstrate through fiction what the real world can sometimes be like.

It’s hard to transition into a recipe from here, but here’s what I’ll say about Rotisserie Chicken Nachos: they are super easy to make, gluten free, and delicious.  And food, whether savory like this or sweet like some of my favorite recipes, can bring people together and heal.  Share these nachos with someone who’s suffering.  Bring them a cake.  Bake them some cookies.  A little kindness can often go a long way.

The Ultimate Doughnut Grilled Cheese

It’s no secret school was not a great time for me, but there were moments of greatness.  Moments when everything seemed just fine, better even.  Moments I don’t want to forget in a sea on ones I wish would vanish. With mean kids and lackluster, unmotivated teachers, fifth grade was a particularly bad year that […]
