And when I say a full day I mean I made lunch, and dinner, and brownies, I ran 2 loads of dishes, washed 10 pots/bowls/ who knows what.
there were Chinese Fish Sauce chicken wings which were amazing, as always. Just lay them out on a try, let them sit in stinky fish sauce for 20-30 minutes and ….delicious…Today I remembered to fry half with a potato starch coating which crisped them up. So in the side by side I can confidently say that with starch and a good double fry is better than anything else I tried so far.
Still in the search for the ultimate brownie I went back to basics and King Arthur. They were good. I love nuts in my brownies but upon a 3rd taste I think they were better without. Perhaps when you get a good brownie it doesn’t need nuts, or perhaps, on my third tasting I had had enough of the nuts. Either way it was a pretty easy recipe and well worth the try.
I also made croutons and did 2 loads of laundry, so yup, just a typical day here in lockdown.
The most fun I have though is usually opening up a good package of new toy(s) or instacart with some ingredient for a meal I might be planning. None of that today, but I did get to use my new squeeze bottles. They failed at the job of spritzing oil on the croutons ( not enough flavor) but they were fun to use anyway.
Like so many other things I have purchased I coveted them for a while… I went back and forth over what to put in them and what kind of top I wanted. These covid days many of us will do anything for entertainment. So I have two oils, a fish sauce and oyster sauce in the fridge and sent two to my little girl.
