What's this about?

While suffering through the stomach flu from hell on Friday I had some time to think about what this blog would most likely be about. Okay I didn't really ponder it too deeply, I watched One Life to Live, Montel and some make-over show on TBS in between puking my guts out but in those quiet moments when I wasn't puking, I sorta figured out what I could see happening with this thing. Thursday night I was talking with a friend of mine about creating a cookbook for people with ADD in which every recipe would be like 3-4 ingredients or the directions could all be in pictures and maybe even a few of the recipes would go off on long tangents with lots of stories and recipes that branch off and include a lot of pointless details. In other words, kinda like having a conversation with me.

Cheese Omelets

Take 2 eggs and whisk together with sour cream, pour into buttered non-stick frying pan -- Whisk...that's kinda cool word. It's totally one of those words that sound like it's spelled. What do they call that again? Oh right, ... yeah....on·o·mat·o·poe·ia Hmm... I wonder if saunter falls in to that category too? I love the word saunter. Saunter always implies that I'm doing some Fred Astaire dance down the road whenever I use it. "Upon hearing the building was about to explode, Sandy, grabbed her cat, yanked the door open and sauntered down the stairs." Fuck...fucking shit burnt the freakin' eggs again! $#@$%^*&%!!!

Take 2 more eggs and whisk...

So until the book comes out most likely I can see this blog having a lot of the everyday as seen from my perspective along with some simple recipes and long tangents that don't really have any real point.


Aside from the stomach flu from hell, this weekend was pretty cool. Saturday, Matt and I started our apt search. We saw a few places in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn but nothing that really impressed us. Then we decided to check out this new Luxury building that is still being completed near Brooklyn Heights, just for fun. He had heard from a co-worker the apartments were "sick!" so we figured it would be fun to have a look even if we couldn't remotely afford them. After signing some waiver that stated if they accidentally dropped a large chunk of cement on our heads we wouldn't sue, we were escorted into the building. OMG it was SICK. We saw 2 sample apts, one was a two bedroom the other a one bedroom. Each had a chef's kitchen something I thought was an urban myth in New York. Both were really huge. Suffice to say we fell in love and to our total shock found out it was actually in our price range.

Basically they want everything but our first child so I'm not holding out too much hope we'll get it but we're putting our applications in tomorrow and my fingers are crossed.

Sunday we went to my friend's Superbowl party. Her invite was priceless...

In honor of my favorite fuckin sporting event of the year, duh that would be the superbowl and not curling, (Americans are the champs at it btw) please come watch the game and drink at our place this Sunday. I have no idea who's playing, what channel it's on, or when the damn thing starts so please arrive at your convenience as you do anyhow. All I know is we have a massive TV and should fulfill our duty to host such events. Anyone donning a helmet will win a door prize or whatever is behind door number #3.


Instead of buffalo chicken wings I decided to make Buffalo Chicken wraps.

Sandy's Superbowl, because wings are messy, Buffalo Chicken Wraps

1. Take Chicken strips season with cayenne pepper and salt. Dunk strips into egg and flour twice (use whole wheat flour, you can't tell the difference from the regular kind and they'll come out crispier)

2.Fry in pan with lots of oil (make sure the oil is hot, when it begins to smoke a little it should be perfect, if it starts to smoke a lot you have a problem.) Cook on each side for about 5 mins.

3.Drain on a paper towel if you care about that sort of stuff.

4.In a bowl pour about a half the bottle of Buffalo sauce.
You can make it if you want to but screw that I just buy it.

5.Take cooled fried chicken strips and dunk into sauce then place onto a cookie sheet. Cook for 10-15 minutes in 375˚oven.

6.While they are cooking, shred some iceberg lettuce and warm up some flour tortillas.To make wrap, just stick 2 pieces of chicken, blue cheese dressing and lettuce into the wrap and enjoy something that tastes so good you'd swear it was 3am, you're wasted and in a fast food restaurant.

Damn Girl! I'd like a wrap please. Can you send it now? The omlette recipe had my holding my knees to my chest and rocking... but it was oddly comforting.

Thanks Amy I will try to do that. I am an amateur. Cooking is just something I like to do, so when I find something easy to cook that I like, I share it. Thanks.
