Never quite follows the recipe. Doesn't really measure. Tastes with her fingers. Somehow, it always works.

Woohoo!!! Celebrate!!

This is my 100th post.
Just so we’re clear on this. That’s huge. Because that means that roughly every 3-4 days since I started this blog, I’ve posted food talkings or food ramblings or recipes. That’s a lot more frequently than I talk to my mom, a lot more frequently than I hang out with most of my friends, a lot more frequently than I keep track of putting my clothes away after work.

In celebration:
No, I did not take this in a chip shop. Not even in Chip Shop. This was taken in my own apartment, on my plate, a picture of fish, and chips, that I cooked in my kitchen.
Trust me when I say this. It is worth the effort. It is worth the lingering scent of frying. It is worth the small grease burns I received. The only way it would have been better is if I had let it drain properly, possibly if I had floured before dredging. But basically…. this was fantastic. Delicious. Frying potatoes is worth the time. Frying the fish is absolutely fantastic. The recipe I used wasn’t really a recipe. I used 2 cups of flour, salt, pepper, a beer, and buttermilk. Basically, I poured in the beer, the batter looked like a dough, so I added buttermilk until it looked like thin pancake batter. Then, I dunked the tilapia filets, and dropped then in some 375-degree vegetable oil until they were golden brown. About 5 minutes. Tilapia cooks quickly. It’s delicious.
The potatoes I sliced about a quarter-inch thick, and then cut them into fries. I fried them for 10 minutes, salted them, and left them to drain on a sheet of paper bag in the oven in a 225 degree oven afterwords.
The whole thing was dleicious with some HP Brown sauce and another Toasted Lager or two. The grease hangover will come. But for now… I am totally happy that I undertook this as my hundredth post.
Tonight, it will be fried chicken. NOT deep-fried. Just my traditional way. Maybe for post 101, I’ll photograph the whole process, so you can see what I do and why my fried chicken is so good that my Oklahoma-born boyfriend requests it and calls it the best he’s ever had. (He could be just being nice, but he’s not like that. Seriously.)
Stay tuned!!

*EDIT* Blogger lied. This is not my 100th post, but my 96th post. Harrumph. Apparently, they count “drafts” as “posts”. Even the abandoned ones that are nothing more than a title. So… I lied. But not really. We’ll just celebrate again on my ACTUAL 100th post. So there!!
