A little freezer gift:

A Hot Cross Bun that my MIL made for us.  Mr. Kim found a whole bag of them on a recent freezer dive and we've been eating them all week!

 

I love those things.  I usually butter them on the cut side and "toast" them in a frying pan on medium-high heat.  The cut side is nice and crispy and the bun is heated through.

Good for you. My grandma always said, “A bit of what  you fancy does you good.” Probably more efficacious than TCM.

You spelled probably incorrectly. It's 'Certainly'.

I have never understood the appeal. That’s just a statement of my personal taste not any sort of judgement on anyone else’s.

This probably could have gone into the 'Ill never again' thread.

I made the mistake of buying a 1# bag of luscious cashew from Nuts.com.

Took me no time to  finish them off.

I thought so, but I have been avoiding whining about my bean aversion, because I know it has become pretty boring.

Chef's treat: Rabbit liver, heart and kidneys. Lovely! Just fried in olive oil with salt and pepper.

A few of ours have will have their date with destiny in another week or so, and that'll be my reward for doing the skinning and cleaning.

So I bought some stuff from Zingermans which included a ZZang Candy Bar. I don't usually like dark chocolate but I ate it anyway.

 

The whole bar (it was small). Yum, yum, yum. And I would eat one everyday like an Advent Calendar, if only I had been smart enough to buy more than one bar.

Nuts.com is Mr. Kim's kryptonite.  We always seem to have a grocery bag full of assorted bags of goodies.  Right now it's chocolate covered cashews, corn nuts, sesame sticks, figs, apricots, and Jordan almonds!

That time of the year, cookies and sweets being delivered to the office for the Holidays. I've eaten a couple of cookies already, and one soft caramel (very carefully, since I have a habit of pulling my crowns out) and it's only 10:30 a.m....😬

Fried me some chicken hearts with chilli and ground cumin. I do love chicken hearts, but prep is a pain, so don't make as often as I should.

I have never actually eaten chicken hearts, but I suspect I would enjoy them. They are certainly not readily available, but I’m sure they would be in one of the Asian stores. I see there are those who claim they do not require any preparation prior to cooking, and those who are horrified by this idea. I take it that you are of the latter persuasion.

Next time, I'll take a picture of how the hearts arrive. Cased in  fat and blood and membranes and often, laced with ventricles and veins. They definitely, in my book, need removing. Apart from the aesthetics and health implications, they can make the hearts bitter.

 

I'm guessing that those who think no prep is necessary are buying hearts that have been at least partially prepped by the vendors. Mine come simply torn from the chest.

 

These below from a while ago are a lot more prepped than mine were this time, but I still trimmed a lot of that fat off.
