Well, dinner tonight sure WAS different. I was reading some of the older threads posted here and came across the one where you all were discussing the spice combo called Tajin. Then I remembered that we had a big bottle of it on the top shelf of the spice cabinet. So I cooked the shrimp in 1/2 beer and 1/2 chicken broth, and added just a little too much Old Bay. Then I dipped the cooked shrimp in butter and had a little dish of Tajin that I dipped them in. I wouldn't say it was the best ever, but I did enjoy it as something different.

I got a big kick out of the back of the Tajin label. It read, "This is not a candy"

Takeout Chinese tonight.

I'm trying something new. The place called them Teryaki chicken on a stick, but it doesn't look like any teryaki that I've ever had before. They look very red, more like char siu pork, but with chicken thighs.

Served over veggie fried rice, and a side of roast pork yat gaw mein soup.

That sucks when people who act like NYers put down NYers for acting like NYers.

NY wannabees...


This came to mind:

No cats died in the making of our chili - that I know of... The label said beef. I also made a pot of cheesy cauliflower soup. I topped my chili with cheddar cheese, black olives, avocado, and sour cream. Chased it down with a Great Lakes beer.

Funny video. I have no idea what you are babbling about, but I enjoyed the video.

If you eat enough street food, you will eventually eat something you did not intend to eat. Down here that would be possum or squirrel. IN NYC, it could be just about anything. Meow.

I finally got around to making a batch of split pea soup today. I was grabbing some chopped ham, and found a small vacuum sealed pkg of smoked pork neck bone meat, so those got simmered and added to the soup. Pretty good stuff.
