Mason has all of his incisors in and has started on the canines. I dread the molars though. 8 teeth in and 12 to go. He is pretty grumpy for a day or two when ones coming in but because they have been spaced out its not been a big deal.

I guess when we were discussing the Truffle Butters at the Wootception, we should have included WD in the discussion! We might have not had the sausage fest with the Butters!


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

So, on my semi-official honeymoon this week, and just logged on.

Saw Fat Gus - had to use eye drops to clear the burning feeling.

Then saw about the Bandolier of Carrots Used more eye drops. Then saw it hadn't changed in two days. Sad.

I'm sure it had much more to do with, I can do this myself and not have to spend hours cleaning more than being seen with parents.

For the record, I'd have made the no cleaning decision also. (said the guy that spent two hours lugging firewood and fixing a water heater at his parents two days ago)

Have I mentioned yet how much I love that Woot ships 3 sets of the same thing in 3 separate boxes?

At least WW doesn't do that yet! (knocks on wood!)

7.5 hours until kickoff.

In on honor of opening weekend, Sunday I am pulling out the deep fryer and frying up some chicken wings, and all sorts of other awful-for-me treats. Anyone have a wing-sauce recipe that they can't live without, or any other frying recommendations?

I usually just keep the wings simple and use Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce. Very good, classic Buffalo wing sauce, cheap, easy and readily accessible. I think my wife wants some fried fish, and I will probably do some jalapeno poppers and maybe some fries. Did I mention I love football season?

They're trying a new Jew-church in LA. It will be wierd because back in Northern California he was the person who played the oldey-timey Jew-bugle.

And "Shana Tovah" is short for "L'Shana Tovah Tikatevu" which means, roughly, "May you be inscribed [in the book of life] for a good year".

Shana Tovah y'all

I'm going to pass along a tip, and you're going to look at me like I'm an badger badger badger (and you'd be right), but this works GREAT. Don't fry the wings. Steam the peanut butter jelly timeers for like 10 minutes then let them cool down and bake them for 45 minutes. They come super crispy, plus you can lie to yourself that since you didn't fry it, it's healthy.

If I was going to take the non-frying route, I would just grill them. I've basically mastered getting a fry-like crispiness on the grill, but the point here is that I want deep-fried stuff all day sunday, in honor of football, period.

Best months of the year start tonight. It's just SWMBO and me tonight (tried to get my friends over but they're busy). Brats on the grill and cooked in beer and onions for dinner. And probably a big ass wine to celebrate kick off. Plus my Chargers are playing on MNF...

I'll certainly keep it in mind, but I grill almost as much in the winter as I do in the summer.

I agree on fryer smell and cleanup. PITA!

I'm trying that this weekend. I wonder how different the fat content is vs frying.

Probably slightly better, but if you fry at the right temperatures, the foods generally don't absorb much, if any of the oil, especially if you aren't using any breading or anything.

Holy crap, after basically fully cooking them (steaming for 10 minutes) you bake then for 40-50 minutes at 425F? How are they not super overcooked?

My roommate is going to drive me crazy! Apparently, during the summer, the keyboard from my (the district issued) desktop computer had been dropped and the leg on it broke. I decided to give her the "old" computer. She noticed the damage immediately when I passed that computer on to her. I figure that I should be given access to a laptop to use as I travel around the world on a daily basis. All travelers are also to be given a desktop in their homebase. The "new" desktop version arrived today but needed to be reconfigured. At some point, while I was out of the room, she actually had the audacity to switch keyboards on me! Our techie guy came by to continue setup and wondered why I had a pack of 4 X 6 cards under the keyboard. I told him what happened. He will be getting me a new keyboard.

First day of classes is tomorrow. It is 10:26 PM and I still have to set up seating charts and make up name tags! Urg!



Hope your day went well!!! You are going to have to label everything of yours so "she" doesn't "borrow" anything of yours!!! I can't believe her switching keyboards like that!!!what time does your school start?

That was my exact thought first time I did it, but they're not. They're tender and delicious, possibly due to the sauce. I used a baking rack and didn't flip. Seemed to work.

I get pretty crispy wings by roasting them in a 475F oven for 20-25 min per side. Not overcooked at all, but that time and temp let the fat render out of the skin nicely.

I'm not sure even labeling will help--all of my things that ended up in the hall/trash last week were labeled with my name! We have a new time schedule: we have to be in school by 7:40. Students may arrive into homeroom at 7:45 and Period 1 starts at 8:00. Classes go until 2:12 and we have to stay until 2:55--although I usually leave between 3:30 and 4. My schedule is very interesting this year: I am free periods 1 & 9 and I have lunch during period 5--starting at 10:45--brunch anybody? I am on deck all the rest of the time! 3 in a row lunch 3 in a row.

My classes went well today. It seems like I have some really nice students this year--a lot of girls. Last year, I had a lot of boys. Very strange.

I am sooooo exhausted, again! I came home and slept for one hour straight. I think I could have slept through to morning! Heading to bed, soon. Good night y'all!
