Yes, I love my job. Don’t worry, I’m not changing careers.
Today, I’m somewhat “suffering” from laryngitis…and a tiny sore throat – mostly from talking for 5 days (when sometimes I don’t talk at all for a week).
So, when I’m under the weather, I frequently spend a lot of time watching the food network. Today was no different. I have become enamored with The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. If you haven’t watched her yet, 9:30 on Saturday morning on Food Network. Go for it. I can related to someone who calls food that doesn’t EXACTLY come out looking pretty “rustic”. That’s me. I make rustic food. Sometimes I make pretty food, but usually I make rustic food.
Okay, back to opening the restaurant…I don’t really want to. I think I just want a Food Network show about wanting to open a restaurant. 🙂 A Food Network sit-com.
I decided today that I was going to make bread. Not unusual…however, turns out, I’m NOT currently making bread. I, instead, decided to go with pulled-chicken. I’m not sure what I’m doing but I thought I would simulate the Boston butt – in a crock pot – idea but instead make it with chicken. Put the chicken in the crock pot with salt, pepper, garlic powder and mustard…and white balsamic vinegar. It’s gonna cook on high for a while, although it kinda goes against the idea of SLOW cooker but I don’t want it to be done in the morning. I want to take it out of the crock pot tonight. It’s going to be gently cooked for 4 hours (on high, but…slow cookers are gentle). Then I’ll turn it down for 2 hours. I’ll have it done before 10.
I may still make bread. I have missed my Kitchen Aid. Not as much as I missed my mom and puppies while I was gone but…I missed my Kitchen Aid.
So, now I have 23 recipes in my food network recipe box. Not enough for a restaurant. Anyone want to open one with me?
