Home Made French Fries

002

I think it is funny when people saying making fries at home is hard. The hardest part is cutting the potatoes. Which I cut by hand, in four minutes. The longest part is waiting for the oil to heat up.

Sunday Breakfast

010


I made cranberry orange scones for breakfast. I am not really a scone person. I would rather have a bagel with smoked salmon any day.

Also the recipe I used seemed very rich. It has three sticks of butter (!) and a cup of heavy cream.  I used buttermilk instead.

The kidlet and yohboh really liked them. But I think they are best right out of the oven. A day old scone is not really worth eating.

The Weird Pizza

I end up making pizzas every other week. Pizza is an excellent leftover user. So we end up with some weird California Pizza Kitchen-esque pizzas.

Like:

Teriyaki Beef Pizza. The fresh cilantro makes it.

Ice Cream Addiction

010

The last time I bought this ice cream I did not get a taste. Because yohboh liked it so much.

Sometimes kidlet likes to eat veggies that are different.

Foodie Thought

Are you a sweet or savory breakfast person? I think as I get older, I am more about the savory.

But I had an idea yesterday that Kellogg's should TOTALLY get on for sweet cereal.

What about Pop Tarts Cereal? It should be the texture of Cinnamon Toast Crunch with a squirt of some fake strawberry jelly and with frosting and little sprinkles on top. It should have something that when the cereal gets wet, it changes color.

Yep, diabetes for breakfast?

I told yohboh this and he told me to only use my power for good.

Instant Espresso Powder

A lot of recipes call of Instant Espresso Powder. I have always ordered it from the internet and it was never cheap. I finally found it at my local Kroger, of all places. It was in the ethnic, Latin American section. I have never really looked for it there. So I pass this bit of knowledge to you.

Chocolate Buttermilk Cake with Gravy Icing

So Chut had a birthday and I made him a cake.

008

The frosting was amazing. It is called gravy icing. I really like the note card that has the recipe on it. And the handwriting is old school. It was created during the Depression. It's like if the filling of an Oatmeal Creme Pie and whipped cream had a baby.

And the Chocolate Buttermilk Cake was very good. I think I like Very Good Chocolate better so I will have to make both at the same time to do a comparison and contrast.

Smoked Pork

Yohboh smoked some pork yesterday. It was tasty. There were drumsticks as well.

The ceramic cooker was a good investment.

Must learn more

So I was reading this article Koreatown eats. And I am ashamed to say that I have not eaten over half of them.

I feel so undereducated.
