    I normally do not break fast in the morning but when I stay at a nice B&B in Britain and they prepare a good English breakfast to order I cannot resist. Rashers of bacon fried eggs, black sausage, baked beans, cereal with milk and toast with marmalade. Yummy

    I work way too much, I'm not home enough and I hate my life blah blah. Because of this I spend most of my days off doing meal prep and making dank food so I can stay one step ahead of total existential darkness when I get home. The past 8 months have been spent perfecting various taco recipes. Tacos are all I eat these days. Tacos forever. My protein of choice is boneless chicken thigh because I can do a lot of different stuff with it and it's juicy-juicy delicious. Pork butt is also pretty good. Every so often I'll fry things even though they don't keep well, BUT it's worth it for that short window of time where they shine. Tonight I got down on my honey butter taco creation. It's pretty good.

    Here is the journey in picture form.

    ^ Burlington, NC.

    There was a BBQ place I liked outside of Burlington. Think it was a western NC style place. You by any chance know if the place is still around.

    On a different note man I miss southern fried chicken. Yes, CA and other places have a lot of different fried chicken too, but it's not the same and I have yet to have any that are as good.

    Howlin Ray's in LA (and Pasadena) is literally the best I've ever had. The line is nuts, but there's a reason for it.

    I'm sorry for the late reply. I did not see this!

    Man, to be honest, I don't eat out much these days. I have only been in Burlington a couple of years and if I have free time to do what I please then I'm grabbing the dog and blasting the Impala so far outside of town that I forget this city exists. I despise this place. It's an endless sea of highway amenities. The main strip here contains every imaginable fast food chain in existence with a Walmart sandwiched between them. Luckily you don't have to drive very far before you're into the country or a little farther and you're in the Smokies and past that you're plowing into the ocean. One day, I swear.

    Anyhow, I cook at home. My experience has been that it's always better and costs less. Not to say there isn't awesome BBQ out there, I'm sure there is. You'd have to guide me to it though. I'm worthless.

    A hit and a miss.

    First the hit. Got in the mood for some Polish food after making some cheat won-ton wrapper pierogies, so tried this for the first time. Pulpety or Polish Meatballs made with beef and pork. Used up some leftover won-ton wrappers to make some wide noodles to go with it and the gravy.

    and the miss was my red cabbage OKONOMIYAKI. Way too doughy for my liking, need a better recipe perhaps.
