Corn Starch is Cool
I made General Tso’s chicken last week, and I found the frying process fascinating. The slurry of corn starch, soy sauce, and egg was fun to play with. I also learned a valuable lesson, low sodium soy sauce is essential, my finished product was a sodium bomb. I had extra batter left, which I used to fry mushrooms. I will do more breading and frying, of this I am certain.
Fortune Cookie Typesetters
If I was a fortune cookie typesetter I would be really tempted to incorporate a random “Will You Marry Me?” from time to time. Just think of the possibilities.
My apartment complex sent out a notice to all residents, cautioning us to drive slowly because children were wondering in the parking lot. But were they wandering while wondering?
My Favorite Commercial Right Now
Before this fall I had only had hot cider a few times, none of which were memorable. Then I had a three day stretch (this past Saturday-Sunday-Monday) in which I had hot cider each day, and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. I think hot cider will become a part of my usual late fall and winter plans. I’m thinking Cruzan 9 might be a perfect match.
