A Random Post to Start November

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

My Favorite Commercial Right Now

Hot Cider

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.

    Your fortune cookie idea made me chuckle. Such a hilarious/bad idea.

    I am a firm believer in fortune cookie messages. The week before I met Gary I got a fortun[ate] message that read…”an unexpected relationship will turn permanent.” I have framed that little, but oh so prophetic scrap of paper! It still makes me smile with happiness!
