Pot Luck

Comment of the Day

Today Minh Truong bravely listed her top 5 foods better prepared by someone else, and strangely, there was some dissent in the comments section. Said Crystal:

Huh? I disagree with all of the above (except maybe #4, since restaurants can get higher quality meat than I can). These are all some of the simplest foods you can make. Plus, when you make them yourself, you can avoid all the extra grease and salt that restaurants insist on adding to their food.

My top two would be Fried Chicken and Boiled Crawfish. Both a total PITA to make and both create a giant mess. Let someone else deal with it.

Have to say, we're with Crystal on the crawfish - especially after learning about "purging" last week.
