Well, dinner/lunch ended up a banana, a few pretzel rods and a shortbread cookie. I'll remind myself to eat more and better later today.

Thanks, all I do is roll the raw chicken in flour and fry no batter or spices.
Then right out of the pan I put garlic powder salt and black pepper on it.
Tried all kinds of crazy batter and spice stuff and keep going back to this method.
To me anyway more crust more batter = more grease = more fat.

I want to use our pressure cooker sometime soon to cook meat. I was thinking a cheap 4+ lb. pork butt roast might be a good meat to start with.? It'll be our first time to pressure cook meat. What do you all think?

I think it is a fantastic idea.
It could turn tamale making into a one day event instead of two.

Tamales would be something different. We haven't made tamales in a while.

This is an inspiration from many cultures mixed into one.
Sounds crazy but it really tastes good.
First here is a pictorial on how I make a burrito.
First I get the tortilla wet on both sides and microwave it for 18 seconds so I can work with it.

What you see in the burrito, is basmati rice, vinegar, salt, sugar, a healthy dose of ghost pepper sauce, sliced garlic stuffed olives, andouille, powdered ginger, and Coleman's powdered mustard.
It really is flavorful.

I'll buy a bottle and do a taste/cooking test. I can't believe that so many people have good reviews then a few turds in the punch bowl all claiming to be bakers say it's bad. It has to be somewhere in the middle. I saw it had water but how much water is the question, a vanilla drink or just cut a little?

I'll report!!!

I wonder, so let everyone know , so many reviews say it is good. Just not familiar with vanilla extract having water, but I don't know it all either, LOL!!

If it is good, that is a very good price for the quantity.

But if I buy some "B" grade vanilla beans and pop them into a 5th of dark rum, I ~could~ claim to be testing the extract level with a vanilla rum and coke!!

I'd probably be lit from just sniffing it, haven't had a drink in a loooonnnng time, other than a taste of the wine to be sure I want to cook with it.

Tamales can be so good, Salt, and fun to make an assembly line, cracking jokes and laughing. Nice family thing to do.

Edit:

For dinner had the corned beef & diced potatoes that did not seal (1 jar did not seal in the batch). It sure turned out good. Very yummy.

Will have to pick up some more and can up some straight pints of just the corned beef and a few quarts of the corned beef, potatoes and carrots, too. Now, if I could only can up something as juicy and tasty looking as those pork rolls you had roasted!

Rajun, ordered some curry spice mixes, and some chevon, so will try a curry with that.
