I Just About Exploded

I just about exploded eating wings last night. They were the good kind. I’m kinda picky about my buffalo wings. They have to be crispy, none of that soggy crap. I like ’em so the skin crunches a little bit. And the sauce has to be good too. I don’t want it to be on fire but they have to bite back. Also, any of you pussys out there using ranch instead of blue cheese to dip with, you can leave right now. I prefer to have about one celery stick for every wing too, but I’m a little more flexible on this point.

Sweet Goodness

I’m still feeling sick. Now I’m starting to get congested but the fever has passed. The mornings are tough, but after I’ve been up for a while I start to feel better. Somebody in our office has recently acquired an account with Otis Spunkmeyer. With the account Otis provided us with an industrial sized cookie baker and a freezer (literally the entire freezer is full) of cookie dough. Now every afternoon the whole office smells like a chocolate chip cookie factory.

But I can’t keep away from the uncooked dough.

I’m not normally a huge fan of sweets. I hate cake, not a big fan of chocolate (I hate that flemmy film that [particularly cheap] chocolate leaves in my throat), will only eat hard candy on rare occasions. I have a pantry full of Whoppers, candy corns, and Oreos. And it will probably stay that way because I won’t eat them. But there are certain things that make my mouth water. I really enjoy ice cream, coke, whipped cream (from the aerosol canister), orange juice concentrate, mousse, and cookie dough.

I’ve come in every morning for the last two weeks and have eaten a chunk of cookie dough the size of two ping-pong balls. And then, sometimes, I have another chunk in the afternoon. This couldn’t be good for me, but I so seldom indulge in sugary sweet goodness that it feels justified. And it tastes ooooohhhhh-so-gooood!

Sweet Sushi Sleep

I went up to Boulder last night. I hadn’t been there in close to a year. And boy was it worth the drive. I met Katy and a couple of her business clients at Japango for dinner. All you can eat dinner. All you can eat sushi dinner! All you can eat sushi dinner for $27!! And two-for-one drinks ’til 6 o’clock. We sat there for three-and-a-half hours and gorged ourselves. We must have ordered a couple of hundred dollars worth of sushi. My god what a feast. It actually physically hurt to walk out of the restaurant. There was a downside though.

Breakfast 5

Decided to take my first shot at the Friday Five today.

1. What did you have for breakfast this morning? If you didn’t have breakfast, why not? A grande latte, if that counts as a breakfast. I normally don’t eat breakfast, it upsets my stomach when I eat too early.

2. What’s your favorite cereal? I can’t remember the last time I had a bowl of cereal but I guess my favorite would be Post Grape-Nuts.

3. How often do you eat out? Do you want that to change? Nearly everyday for lunch. Yeah, I want to change that. I’d save a boat load of money if I brought my lunch to work just 3 times a week.

4. What do you plan on having for dinner tonight? Got a recipe for that? I’ll be having true Cajun gumbo fixed by a true Coonass. Recipe not available.

5. What’s your favorite restaurant? Why? It changes, but right now it’s Tommy’s Thai because of their excellent food for an excellent price.

A Night At Jerusalem

I went out to dinner with my pops last night and will be doing so again tonight. We ate at a little (only 10 or so tables, and some additional seating outside that was not an option because it was snowing) place called Jerusalem Restaurant over in the Denver University area. The Jerusalem restaurant is owned by the Wahdan family and has been in operation since 1978. Dinner was really relaxed and it was an enjoyable evening.
