Tips for Great Fried Chicken

I season the chicken in a milk bath, then use seasoned flour to cook it in.

How interesting a ppattern. We all seem to start ou the same, and even mostly solo around 10 or so.
Wish my grandmother had lived long enough to see her teaching take effect when I cooked at the cafes. She was alive when wwe had the family cafe, but alrady had Alzheimers.
My first solo dish was chicken noodle soup. We even made our own made our own noodles. I am sure mine were a litle lumpy, but not even my cousins complained.

In Paris, Ghosts of Bistros Past

We were in Paris back in 1952. One of my few memories (I was 10), is sipping hot chocolate at one of those tiny outdoor tables.

That reminds me of an incident from my teens. We'd already had dinner.
I washed the dishes and turned to get the burners off the stove. I forgot they were still hot.
Burnedboth palms badly of course.
Whole thing was my own fault.

Especially with a little peanut butter added.

My arm and wrist did get tired, and it was hot over that stove.

I was 6. My grandmother made jams and jellies. I stood on a chair to stir. Looking back, no one would teach a child this way today.
I would stand there and stir the berries, pectin and sugar. Grandma would stop and check it now and then.
After a length of time, she would send me out to play. Probably not all that long.

Butter Bean and Ham Hock Recipe [split from GT]

Be glad to, it's very simple,

2 ham hocks
1 pkg dry butter beans soaked overnight and drained
water to cover
1 tsp all seasoning
1 half tsp freshly cracked pepper
water to cover
you judge the salt because I do not use it.

Throw them in a crock pot and let them cook till the beans are tender

(I leave them all day, or over night)

Butter Bean and Ham Hock Recipe [split from GT]

When we had the Friendly Cafe back in the late 60's, we often had buter beans and ham hock as special on the menu. I still fix it in my crock pot once in a while.

They also make a good dip mashed with refied beans, onions finely diced. Salt, pepper and a little jalapeno.

The Ever-Morphing Banh Mi

I love food fusion. It is not only good tasting, but teaches us much about the other side of the planet's food values.
