Birthday Onion Rings

One of Little Miss’ birthday requests was Redflare’s special onion rings.

So we obliged and pulled down the fryer that we basically use once a year and fired them up.

Redflare had to chase us all away from the bowl long enough to get this picture. Otherwise the bowl is basically empty the moment they come out of the fryer.

I’ll tease that if you want the batter recipe you need to leave a comment. 😉

Warcraft New Year’s Crunchy Spider Surprise

From the Warcraft cookbook page 119.

It was part of our New Year’s finger food feast.

We pulled a Nomi slightly so while they looked great, they didn’t taste great. I think we used too many wonton wrapper pieces so they tasted a bit doughy because of that.

We look forward to trying them again though, so we haven’t written off the recipe.

Basket of Treats

When Ms Fish and family came for a visit, they were bearing some awesome homemade gifts.

The pickles went really fast. I think they were a favorite. 😉

They were amazingly generous. I have something special already scheduled for Christmas for that Santa, so stay tuned.

Thankfulness

It really is amazing that we live in an age that a service like degustabox exists.

What is this service? You’ve never heard of it?

Well, it’s a monthly food subscription service.

What’s above is what came in our first box.

I’m thankful that we have the funds to be able to subscribe to something like this.

I’m thankful that my children are excitedly thankful when it arrives, ready to explore new foods and give them a try.

We are blessed with a time that we don’t have to worry what goes into our little ones’ stomachs the next night. They don’t go to bed crying and wanting for more.

That is what I’m thankful for this year as we sit down to enjoy our turkey.

So happy Thanksgiving everybody.

As you’ve seen, he had a fantastic and busy birthday.

Nana and Aunt A were sure to come up for the special day, because it was one of his birthday wishes (and it was feasible).
