    In retrospect, I'm not sure I'd recommend flambeing things with bacon grease too often. It worked out well this time, but who knows what'll happen next time.

    Go for it y'all!

    D
    Mine is about 30 mins too. But there are pointless roundabouts in the area which just increase traffic and it takes more time. So maybe 35-40 mins on a bad day.

    my neighborhood is right next to a shopping center, so i can walk 10 mins and be at McDonald's, PetSmart, sushi, dollar store, ice cream... its really convenient when you are randomly craving a milkshake and your dog wants something from PetSmart... also the middle and highschool are across from it, so if you go to McDonald's when they let out, you will see swarms of kids getting milkshakes and ice cream and other stuff. the closest Indian place to me is like 20 mins, but the wait lines really long and chick-fil-a is next door, so we never really eat there, because with a long line we don't want to wait so we just go to chick-fil-a

    I could really go for some sushi today. I do think Asian food is so much better than any other types of food. Give me Korean, Japanese, Chinese or Indian any day

    I got kinda tired of the same old burgers on the grill so I tried this. Holy smokes!!!! These are the best burgers I've ever tasted! I free-styled it with the sauce, but his is a decent enough foundation. Anyway, thought I'd share because of how much my family and I enjoy these. Bon appetite!

    The good news is that only two of the three fell on the same weekend!

    My dad was out of town to visit his mother (he hadn't seen her in over a year due to the Pandemic), so my mom and I went down to my sister and brother-in-law's place (at my sister's request - it was her first Mother's Day and she wanted to spend it with her own mother (and me)) and had a good time.

    Thursday I made cookies for my choir, and they turned out excellent according to those who at them.

    The day before we left I helped my mom make spaghetti. Spaghetti is to my mom what chicken curry is to me - a recipe that can be made any time, anywhere, that involves no recipe card or guide. It's just somethin you have to memorize and know in your heart. I'm working on getting there, but it's not that easy for me. Fortunately I'll have help the next few times. She even let me experiment a little, so I added a 1/4 cup of wine (Merlot) and some red pepper flakes. The sauce turned out great, and it was one of the better attempts. The wine didn't really impart a flavor, but it enhanced the meatiness of the sauce to a rarely-seen degree. It reminded my mom of the lasagna recipe we use, which also uses wine. The pepper flakes added an occasional kick, but we didn't want the sauce to be too spicy anyways.

    I prepped most of the sweet potatoes waffle batter the night before we left, and pounded chicken the morning we left. (I should have seasoned it with salt and pepper then too, but I wasn't thinking that far ahead.) The next day is when I cooked it all, and it turned out really well! The chicken was perfectly cooked, although they weren't as spicy as they were last time, much to my chagrin; the waffles were light and fluffy. It was a success.

    Next time, I'm going to do a similar thing and prep ahead, even if I cook it at home. I want to see what marinating the chicken in buttermilk for a full 24 hours will do to the tenderness - I want to get to the point where the chicken feels like it's melting in the mouth!

    The chicken & waffles and cookies were all well received, and I was told I put my foot in the dishes three times!

    This week I'm FINALLY going to try out a recipe I've been eyeing for a few weeks now, and hopefully it's going to be a mainstay in my diet. I have a whole meal based around this recipe, and I'm really excited.


    I also found a nice pumpkin cinnamon roll recipe I'm going to make the same day as the Harley Quinn Breakfast Sandwiches. It won't be anytime soon, as I'd like to wait for pumpkin season to roll around, but we'll see if I can wait that long. The cinnamon rolls will be prepped the night before. There are a lot of carbs in this meal, but there's no higher blessing for me than people enjoying my food and then passing out into a food coma.
