  1. Thank you for doing this, Liamsaunt... I am in the frozen tundra right now and will live vicariously through your blog!
  2. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    No, you're NOT a horrible person...or I am, too. I love Black Forest ham and Finlandia swiss sandwiches. When times have been tough I've been sure to fit the things I love into my existing food budget, as I'm sure you do. Life is too short to not enjoy the things we love.
  3. Actually, it's any submarine sandwich. Most pizza places offer pizza and grinders which are hot or cold. I am blessed with some excellent pizza and grinders in central New England!
  4. That's disgusting. I love me some good nachos, and that ain't it!
  5. Happy Thanksgiving, a day late, to you as well, Nancy! I am grateful that you are sharing your adventures and am so impressed with your cooking and meals!
  6. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
  7. Thank you so much, you two!
  8. A base used for chopping herbs or vegetables with a curved blade?
  9. It does, but I pat the dough balls down a little bit for even cooking. If you want to split them, it's better to do it while they're still a bit doughy in the middle, and then you can get them as soft or as crispy as you want them to be. I have to make these soon - they are so delicious!
  10. My ex MIL makes toutons (as I do now), only we split them with 2 forks after they've been fried on each side, fry the insides and serve with real maple syrup (or Aunt Jemima's if you're said ex MIL) and butter if you're really decadent.
  11. This past Tuesday, my son and his best friend got back from Shelbyville, Kentucky where they were on a mission to go to Claudia Sanders Dining House to have the fried chicken in order to compare it to KFC. They were successful. This post is not to say that I have any knowledge of what goes into KFC chicken. I just thought that it was a funny coincidence that they were making this trip as this news came out. He did buy the restaurants cookbook for me, though, and the fried chicken recipe has little resemblance to the 'secret recipe' that is now supposedly being revealed. It calls for milk instead of buttermilk and 1 1/2 TB Claudia Sanders Chicken Seasoning which had been available for purchase. The book was published in 1979 and the Seasoning is no longer in existence for sale, as far as I can tell. He described the chicken as "Meh" and the sides as really, really good. We love fried chicken (In moderation). I'm a midwestern girl at heart and it's one of my favorites (Niemergs in Effingham, IL is outrageous). I may have to give this secret recipe a try - as soon as it cools down a bit here in Massachusetts!
  12. So excited! I've always wanted to to there!

    Kim, you've been missed! Prayers for your Mom...
