Unless you’re a hair stylist, what exactly is fun about doing your hair? WHAT? But we ladies have to do it. Getting our hair done makes us feel better on the inside. Or maybe it’s just me. I finally got my hair done. Very last minute and very late at night but it’s finished and I’m exceedingly happy. No more touching my hair for two months. God bless her.
I celebrated my best friends belated birthday brunch at Park’s Edge. Whilst sitting in RIDICULOUS traffic, I had my friend read the menu to me. I decided on Chicken & Waffles since I’ve never had it before. Apparently, it’s very popular in L.A. I’ve never been interested in eating it because honestly, it’s a chicken and a waffle. A dry piece of fried chicken and a dry waffle…….Doesn’t make sense to me. They used chicken tenders that were really tender! I was pleased. Probably won’t eat it again tho.
Sunday, I went to a BBQ. Brought my side of corn which was absolutely yummy (according to the fellas). I shucked only the ripest, fattest and juiciest yellow and white sweet corn.
Instructions: Boil in a mixture of milk, chicken stock, stick of butter, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, salt and sugar. Add the corn and simmer for another 10-15 minutes. I used 10 ears of corn (10 for $3 at Publix!) that I halved so I boiled them a little longer. I’ve read that you shouldn’t boil corn too long because it will dry out quickly. You want them to retain their crispiness. And you’re done! Perfection.
My poor poor friend Ben slaved on the grill for HOURS. It rained and rained yet he still grilled. It was worth the wait. He’s an amazing cook
