For the most part, the food I make is good. It isn’t to often I make something that goes in the trash without us eating it. Well, I’m officially announcing this today, I can not make Brittle! I almost caught the kitchen on fire, burned myself, and burnt the brittle. It’s frustrating. Note to everyone out there, never add a liquid to hot sugar! I know this but woke up stupid this morning that thought it was a good idea.
I consider myself a good cook and it bothers me when I mess something up. I have a few things I’m not good at. Stir Fry is at the top of that list. It never comes out good. Ask Huck! It’s always bland or too salty. I suck at cooking Pork Chops, too! 99.9% of the time, they are dry. Huck loves them, and I hate cooking them.
As I’m writing this, I have a pot of peanuts boiling on the stove. I really hope these turn out good. Salt, Water, Beer, Peanuts… If I screw this up, I’m closing the blog and ever cooking again!
Boiled Peanuts are my last hope for my College Football themed recipe. Today, UGA is playing Tennessee. My plan was to make Pumpkin Seed Beer Brittle. Easy enough, right? NOT!
I originally wanted to make boiled peanuts. It was the only thing that comes to mind when thinking about Tennessee and Fall. Every year my parents would take us to the mountains and we’d always get boiled peanuts. It’s a tradition. Huck and I have done it too. I’ve never made them at home. I’m not sure why? They’re so easy and they make a perfect snack while watching football.
BTW! The peanuts came out great! You wouldn’t be reading this if they didn’t. I had to slap Huck’s hand away a few times while taking pictures “Give me some!”
Hanging out at home, watching SEC Football, and eating Boiled Peanuts… Maybe I am from the South after all!
