random food things
- do not attempt to make real southern fried chicken if you do not have a cooking thermometer. the chicken looks yummy and crispy and done but when you bite into it, it will be unappetizingly raw a few layers down. damn it. will let you know if and when i try it again (i got a thermometer over the weekend)
- this combo of items makes a great homemade pizza, pasta or quiche: fresh tomatoes, bacon, and plain goat cheese. trust me on this one.
- while other local gardens are winding down with tomatoes, ours appears to be ramping up this week. i was afraid i was going to be queen of fried green tomatoe and/or green tomatoes relish, but it appears we're going to have some warmer weather for a few days so there you go.
- apple season is coming! apple season is coming! in fact, it's just around the corner!
