Parmesan, Pinot Grigio consumed on the patio.  La dolce vita.

It is hot, I live on the second story.  Food is never more sensuous than when the Marcona almond lands in your umbilicus.

late morning snack at work, cut up apricot and nectarine (underneath). I love summer fruit.

This morning I am snacking on pretzel rods with added Honey Mustard (I keep the plastic bottle in a bag in my desk drawer).

This morning, while sipping coffee, I finished off the left over pastry creme from yesterday's eclairs.   YUM!

For last night's dinner, I skinned a couple of chicken thighs. I intended to use the skin this morning with breakfast, but an early (6 am) call changed all my plans. I finally managed to crisp them up  in the late afternoon for a between lunch and dinner snackette while e-Gulleting.

Did you deep fry them? I ask because they definitely don’t look the same as mine which are slowly fried in their own rendered fat.

No. I dry them, then stick 'em between two bits of kitchen paper and nuke them for a minute.

牙签牛肉 yá qiān niú ròu is a popular snack or beer food round here. Some supermarkets sell it, but I usually make by myself, as do most people. The Chinese means "toothpick beef". Lean beef is sliced thinly and cut into small pieces. These are marinaded in Shaoxing wine and soy sauce,  with garlic salt, and usually, chilli flakes. After between 30 minutes to an hour, they are threaded onto toothpicks, sprinkled with white sesame seeds and very briefly deep fried. I love 'em.

Brie so ripe that eating it outside was a necessity.  I know that @rotuts likes to ripen his Brie but I took this specimen one umami molecule too far. It was consumed with pita chips and margarita.

@rotuts I have two CSO and a back up unit ;) in case they stop making it.   Not that I am paranoid or anything.   It's just my Russian upbringing.  One must have salt, matches, soap and their favorite kitchen appliance.

 

Candle is citronella to protect us from mosquitos and not from the Brie!  We clearly liked it.

Currently snacking on Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel pieces - Hot Buffalo Wing flavor. 

They're not hot at all but have a nice flavor and are addicting.
