Came home late after a very trying and tiring day. It was a toss up between something to eat and a gin and tonic. Decided to be strong and eat. Comfort food required so pasta aglio e olio (garlic sautéd in oil except I used butter) topped with mozzarella (I was out of parmesan). Usually yummy, but to crown the grotty day I took the first mouthful and I'd FORGOTTEN TO SALT THE PASTA !!!!! It isn't the same if you salt it when it's cooked.

Should have stuck with the gin!

You're right, MadCook. Next time have the gin first, then think about what you feel like cooking for dinner. Booze first. Then you can get back to normal.

We had breakfast tonight. Made some pancakes and fried some bacon. Now I have some bacon drippings. I like to fry our eggs in it. Yum!

Mea Culpa. Nothing on PianoAl's quest. I meant




Small, because it is not a full ham. I don't think they grow boneless baby hams.

Anyways I gotta pan of scalloped taters in the oven bigger than the ham and I gotta go now.

Z, a few nights ago I made roasted chicken and seasoned it heavily with this and nothing else.....
Tajín (seasoning) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was the best roasted chicken ever!

Tonight I'm making chicken enchiladas with the leftovers, and also Spanish rice and green salad.

I hate Harry. He makes me so jealous I want to poke him.

I'm so very glad to see your photos, Harry. I missed you so very much! Your meal looks so very nice, as usual.

Your way of speaking to us, when coupled with your photos, makes me feel as if I'm in your kitchen with you, Harry.

I don't feel well tonight. I took a fall on my bike today and I hurt my back, so I didn't feel much like cooking and I'm having to take horrible painkillers and muscle relaxers. Thankfully, Mamma and Carl stepped in and made spaghetti with meatballs, garlic cheese bread, and a salad.

It's not exciting as the sauce came from a jar and the meatballs were frozen and pre-cooked.

Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow. I let everyone down tonight.

Uck.

With love,
~Cat

Dang it, KL. I don't have anything like that. Could you give me an approximation of what you think would make up that seasoning? I have cayenne, Tabasco and cayenne, for starters? Help, I really need to get something special for chicken.
