Remember that song by C+C Music Factory? Whatever happened to them? Just out of curiosity, I went to go look up when the song came out; I knew it was in the late 80s/early 90s, but nothing more specific than that. 1990. Ouch. Eighteen freakin’ years ago … but it feels like just yesterday.
So anyway, I have some things that have been furrowing my brow lately and thought perhaps the astute crowd here could help me out.
Things That Make ME Go Hmmm…
1. For those that have been to Taco Bell before, how DO they get the beef so tiny and fine? And I mean this in total seriousness. When we make tacos or quesadillas and the like at home, I can never quite get the meat to that consistency. Know the secret?
2. Why do the subs made in a deli taste so much better than the ones you make yourself at home? Using the same ingredients, they still don’t compare. Is there a secret?
3. Without cutting into it, what is the best way to tell if chicken is fully cooked inside? When I’m making chicken with a sauce, I don’t mind cutting into it, because the slit will be covered up. But in a case of grilled chicken, I don’t want to serve chicken that has been hacked into, you know? How to tell?
4. Anyone watch Jon & Kate Plus 8? On a recent episode, in a shot of their kitchen table I spotted cupcake placements. If you know me, you know how much I love cupcakes, and now, of course, I must have these placemats. Have you seen them for sale anywhere? Help!
Got answers? Got your own questions?
