Jus’ Ask

Co-worker is “obsessed/addicted” with salt and vinegar fried chicken from one of the nearby grocery store delis.

The Mouse stopped in at the grocery store the other day, first tried to locate the powder (sodium acetate?) on the sales floor, failing that, asked one of the deliย servers about availability. Not for sale, but she was willing to give me “extra” salt with purchase. ๐Ÿ™‚

Bought 1/2 pound of salt and pepper fried chicken, and got extra “salt”.

Sodium Acetate?

Co-worker was happy, she got fried chicken, and the raw material to season he own creations.

Jus’ gotta ask. Customer service in SPAM Land. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner with the relatives this weekend. Not really potluck, but, local style, bring food (no empty hands). ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry, picture looks more like something out of CSI or Dexter instead of a kitchen, my bad.

Along with the magic box (see yesterday’s post), these ingredients have the potential of making something awesome, if I don’t overthink and mess it up.

Stay tuned. We’ll all find out soon enough.

Enjoy. Eat well.
