Oh you won't like that at all.
Where should I have the small cooler and dry ice sent?

Thanks for looking up puffy dogs. That one caught my attention, too

I'm thinking of making up a batch of GG's Szechuan pickling liquid, putting it in a grill pan and dropping some frozen chicken wings into it. Then I'll let them marinate/cook on the grill.

And I was wondering the same thing re: Kylie. I've seen many holiday dinner threads started days before the holiday, but we still have a daily dinner thread anyway.
Besides, wake up? I don't think she sleeps!

Do you make your tamales or do you cheat like I do RF?

...LOL....

My wife usually orders Salvadoran tamales from this one lady. She ordered 30 on this round. Frankly, I'm don't care for Savadoran tamales, I prefer Mexican.

I have some flauta's that just need baked (Costco) and I'll make some Cuban Black Beans and Rice in my pressure cooker. (I foresee many pressure cooker meals in my future.=0)

Guacamole. Salad. Fin.

I got some ahi limu poke and some spicey ahi poke for appetizers. That would be our local raw fish cubes with various spices that we love so much here.
