For Hanukkah my wife got me kitchen lingerie.
For those of you who don’t understand, it’s a term based on an old joke:
“Lingerie is a gift a man gives to his wife which is really For himself.”
Since I do the lion’s share of the cooking, kitchen lingerie is what we call fancy cooling appliances. They are gifts for me which I use to make food for her and the rest of the family.
This year, I got a deep fryer.
I have been experimenting and made my own potato chips.
One of the tips I got was to brine the chips after slicing.
I brined them in a minute of kosher salt and a beef bullion cube, to give that beefy old-school McDonald’s beef tallow flavor.
Hot damn are they good.
I’m not sure if I’m ever going to buy potato chips ever again.
Next weekend I’m going to have to break out the deep fryer again and experiment some more.
