    ic..i cleaned out my freezer today to prep for food shopping this weekend and found an item that was sooo freezer burned/covered in ice that i had no idea what it used to be. my best guess what a piece of meatloaf that i froze as a leftover a million years ago and forgot was in the back of the freezer.

    Next week, son and I are going to experiment. We're going to make "California-style" burritos. Instead of using beans and rice, we're going to use French fries!

    The tom yum soup was so spicy that it made my nose run and my eyes water. But it tasted so good that I didn't care. It was takeout, so I enjoyed every last drop in the privacy of my home with tears streaming down my face and a pile of tissues by my side. I'm basking in the afterglow of a heavy dose of hot chili oil.

    I'm having a "discussion" with someone. He has the position that "Chicken fried steak" tastes like chicken and that's the reason for the term. I say it's because of the technique - flour dredge, egg wash, breadcrumbs or more flour. He's cocksure I am wrong.

    I don't have the heart to tell him that fried okra is "chicken fried," too.

    last weekend we were driving down to visit our daughter at college. we drive past one of those bread outlet places every time, but this time i asked hub to stop and check it out.

    oh my..it was awesome! everything is coming to date, so it was soo cheap. we got whole wheat bread for .50 a loaf. bagels for 1.00 a 6pk.

    and the tastykakes...yes, discount tastykakes. between 1-1.39 a box. needless to say i bought a ton of stuff and froze it.

    ic...it is thursday and i have already been through an entire box of tandykakes and half way through a box of the peanut butter kandy bars.

    thank goodness the rest are in the freezer...maybe out of sight out of mind will help.

    Chattanooga's bakeries won yesterday! I got a two foot loaf of Challah bread,a Baguette(still hot from the oven),a tiny little boule made with AH LOT of butter and a giant chocolate boule filled with coconut,chocolate chunks. Later at Whole Foods I bought six giant morning glory muffins...Irish cheddar. Coconut dates...carob fudge.

    My confession: I can't be trusted in towns with good carb choices. :batting:

    I really shouldn't go shopping when I'm hungry. We all say this, but I never learn. :mad:

    Tried a prickly pear for the first time. It was pretty good, however I need to remember gloves next time I pick one out.

    There's a big one growing at the corner of my house. One of the neighbors collects the fruits to make jelly. Supposedly you can quickly roast the fruit over a flame to get rid of the prickles and then peel the fruit.

    The little hair-like prickles are a pain. I accidently brushed against some and got them stuck to my shirt without knowing it. Shirt went into the washer and every other item in the load ended up with little razor points as well.

    Yeah, my boyfriend has made jelly from them and also suggested the flame method of hair removal. I only bought one, not enough for jelly and in the process of selecting my fruit, imbedded the awful little hairs in my skin that took a day or two and repeated hand washings to remove. I looked online and followed their instructions to rinse the hairs off the fruits, slice the skin off, and then just eat the fruit in chunks. It has a delicate sweet flavor that is quite good. However, there are a lot of very hard seeds. I swallowed some and spat some out.
