chicken noodle soup – in a pinch!

… emphasis on noodles! Feeling sick, under the weather, whipped this up without stopping at the grocery store. Had all I needed at home. Those are Hungarian egg noodles (sorry, no pic) from Starsky Fine Foods, they’re thin and short – like needles, when dry, but as you can see, really plump and sop up broth when cooked. Speaking of broth, that’s organic chicken broth I had in the pantry, PLUS I had organic baby kale in the fridge so I tossed that in as well. I like finishing with grated cheese (Romano Lupa), and hot sauce, today I went with good ole Tabasco. A few pics y’all!

“inefficiencies aggravate me” – danistrulytheman

… honestly, should read “inefficiencies aggravate the fuck outta me” … toned it down. Looks like a kinder, gentler danistrulytheman rules this blogroost of late. Maybe that’s a good thing. Seriously, you’ve been doing this, repetitively on a basis for who knows how long? Yet it takes me a mere 2 seconds to see its failings and shortcomings and setting you straight? Get your shit together lady!! Btw, thanks for the extra hot sauce. I’m assuming it’s an apologetic attempt, making things right ‘tween you and I … seeing how I was painfully and sufferingly left waiting, ‘nstead of being well on my merry way. Apology accepted … extra hot sauce too!! 😉

Boy Wonder’s Been Bustin’ My Balls ‘Bout His Homemade Hot Sauce Birthday Present!

… ok, that’s COMPLETE BULLSHIT!! Just like the flow/sound of it is all, lol. He texted earlier asking my thoughts, had to fess up I hadn’t tried it, Had to fess further I was a teeny-tiny bit scared to try, lol. Looks like those ultra hot sauces from the Islands I told him – but promised him I’d crack open the mini-mason jar and give it my best Trinidadian whirl when I got home.

… ok again, yep, it’s Hotter Than Hell … but I love it, and I love the effort/thought. What a beautiful birthday present … now excuse me as I rub my watering eyes and wipe my runny nose …

Homemade w/ Love …

Spicy Sriracha!!

Spicy is right! I think garlic is what separates it from other hot sauces I’m accustomed to, and this is the real rooster sauce. Recipe’s my creation; Shanghai thick noodles, braised Baby Bok Choy, beef stock, BBQ pork, and tilapia … TILAPIA? … lol, had a few frozen fillets, figured it be a good time to use them … oh, and I had everything on hand except the Baby Bok Choy (a huge bag’s worth set me back $2.17 – great value), and y’all know how I love using what I have in my fridge/freezer/pantry, creating healthy, fun dishes. For a couple of bucks Tiff and I ate well today, AND have leftovers for tomorrow … yep, this one’s def a winner!

whoaa, that’s a shitload of Sriracha
