well this could, should and probably would be about food...but i'm having a crummy day. i hate cooler weather, only 77 here today. "they" say it will warm back up. ok NOW! anyways, let me explain the reasons for my crummy day. 1. my atlanta braves got
cheated friday, i mean seriously why would an outfield umpire make an infield call rule...stupid call by the wrong official. 2. my university of georgia bulldogs got whalloped by south carolina. i thought that sucked but when our qb got back to athens after
getting stomped by the gamecocks, his father had been diagnosed with cancer. of course, it doesn't end there...he drives back to his house and finds it rolled and egged. true story. i thought all the idiot fans lived in alabama. ok, 3 . well i have high blood
pressure . i'm kinda type guy that's an efficiency expert screwball ( what can i take or do from one room to the next since i'm going that way type ), so today i have a dr.s appointment. no big deal. i had cut the high blood pressure in half in the evening
due to excessive bleeding from minor scratches. she says nope can't do that and start taking asprin. she is a sweetheart and knows me well. i'm gonna do it. but i hate people telling me what to do. even she made a joke of it to her nurse. and of course, i
get poked to give more blood. anyone remember the movie dr. strangelove...yeah, precious bodily fluids. heck, i could have brought them a sample after cutting myself shaving. anyways, oh back to 4. i try and use a rebate coupon for claire's EXPENSIVE medicine.
they are busy, i said cool, i'll be back in an hour. i come home and plan dinner and start prepping ( told ya i'm focused) . i need ingredients for today's and tommorows menu. ok, i plot out destinations and proper things to buy...you know dry vs wet things.
i like to make stuff myself. i go back to cvs...rebate denied. i'm tired. ok, i contiue on my quest for the stuff at store...actually get everything i want...over-paid. 5. i gotta make ranch chicken for the moose with brussel sprouts and parm. egg noodles.
i hate ranch. so back to topic, what is your choice of weapon in the kitchen? i know many folks will go with a wustoff knife...very nice choice but to quick for me. a cast iron frying pan...i respect that, but you would probably tucker out before the job
was complete, a rolling pin...yes now that has merit. i also respect this choice as long as it's wooden the marble ones could break then you have a really big mess. nope, for me gimme a wooden 2-3 lb. mallet. the joy, the thrill! it makes a great cat-scaring
noise that is certainly something that resonates a while and not a dull thud like the cast iron. you get something in the kitchen, mostly dead and yep...you can way-lay that sucker! plastic bag is the way to go. i'm all about green but sometimes the new ways
work more efficiently. ok, i just walked outside to take a smoke break and the thin, tanned,young trophy wife from down the street comes high-stepping outside and yells hi, beautiful day. yes, there is a god. i put the mallet away.
