  • Re: When you're mid-apology for sexual harassment and remember you've got a killer recipe to share

    The lines are long, there's no going back:

    A lot of gropers.  A lot of guys whipping out their hog in the office.  What a time to be alive.
    What the hell are these people thinking? I must live a sheltered existence, but I cannot imagine this stuff going on. Scumbags! 
    How do you feel about p*ssy grabbers? Fake news, I’m sure. 
    He used to be a Hillary supporter too. I see a pattern here. 
    Ha ha. Well done.

  • Sous Vide Fried Chicken

    TFJ and I tried a new spot with friends Friday night and they had “Award Winning Fried Chicken” on the menu. I don’t eat a lot of fried food but I asked about it and got the very enthusiastic nod from our waitress. It was as advertised and with the first bite (even though it was not advertised as such),  I knew it was cooked Sous Vide before being fried. It was fantastic. I remembered seeing a chefsteps video about it a while back so I dug that up and sho-nuff, I was right. This is a killer way to do perfect fried chicken. I brined the bird first and glad I did. Juicy, salty, crispy, goodness.

    Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble...





    Texas Pete’s  and honey on the side.

    Sorry to hear the news. If you are traveling in the Houston Area and need ANYTHING, please give a shout. You have lots of Egger family in this area!
    Thanks Darian...I'm planning on flying into Austin and an old friend who lives in Temple will pick me up and drive me to Weslaco.   Appreciate the offer.  Hope to relocate to TX someday and looking forward to sharing a meal with a lot of the TX Eggers.  
    We would love to have you when you decide to relocate. 

    I was not close at all to my dad since I was young as well. We talked a few times a year for the past 20 years; maybe saw each other once or twice at a dinner or something. He was not a good dude and we went through some of the same things you have gone through. When he got sick, my sisters and I gave him the type of care we would have wanted for ourselves. It was above and beyond anything he deserved but what we all realized it that is was as much for us as it was for him. We came to understand a lot of things better and even though there was not a lot of emotion involved, it was cathartic to help him out a little in his last days. I haven't thought much about him since as he was never a big part of my life after i was 16 or so but I am proud of what my sisters and I did. It was a life learning experience and I'm happy to have passed that class. 

    You won't regret it if you go. You might if don't but you may not. I didn't really have any connection to mine but I did feel a sense of duty to give the old man the best send off we could. It was time well spent and I'm glad my kids got to see me suck it up and take care of the business at hand. Those little bastards better have taken notes :)
