|Anton Ego - The Imperious Food Critic|
Admittedly, I did say that but that was long before I started blogging and before Pinterest came along. Thanks, pallies! It's your tantalizing recipes that you share on you blogs that inspired me!
My closet-size kitchen is now my playground and I have so much fun trying out new recipes and snapping pics of them. The biggest pleasure of all is seeing Rodney, my picky 13-year old son asking for seconds these days. Menu-planning used to be such a challenge with him. Even Anton Ego would have been easier to please!
Keepers from last week's menu to share.....

Tip : Placing the potato on a wooden spoon as you slice along the length of the potato will keep your knife from slicing all the way through the potato.

Just marinate your chicken/pork with your favourite seasonings, dip in beaten egg, coat with custard powder and pan fry in a mixture of butter and margarine/olive oil. Yummmmmm! You are welcome!
Curious, I googled to find if anyone else does this and learned that the Viets love their corn done this way! Ngô chiên bơ” (literal translation: deep-fried corn in butter) is a snack that's really popular with kids and adults.
It's not even 5.00 PM yet and Josh asks, "So what's today's special, Ma?"
