September 10, 2012


This week the temps have been down some, so we jumped the gun a bit and did a big old pot of gumbo.  Lovely.  Talk about comfort food!

After all my culinary experience, you’d think I’d know enough to just follow the damned recipe. But this afternoon Warner ground chicken thighs for me -  2 pounds for a double recipe.  I looked at it – and so did he – and it just didn’t look  to me enough.  The recipe said one pound of ground chicken  made 40 - ¾” Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – but it didn’t seem possible. So we did up three pounds.  I now have 200 meatballs in the  freezer.  All in all, I used 1 cup for Frank’s hot sauce.  And by the time I had rolled up all 200, my hands looks like those of Lady Macbeth.  And I am here to tell you that stuff doesn’t come off in a flash.
