This is not a foodie blog

Although I know that I AM a foodie. There are plenty of great foodie blogs out there. I've been known to read a few of them.

No. This is a tale of " Junk Food Friday" gone bad. Tonight I attempted to make gluten free (those of you who know me know I'm "high maintenance" and those of you who don't yet - well now you know, I'm hard to feed therefore high maintenance) fish and chips.

Travis cleverly took a picture of me as I privately said "this is a complete disaster - I believe I may have been saying "Ahh shit" to myself . You're right, the apron does nothing for me but there was hot oil involved. Hot oil and a completely disastrous fish batter.

"Nope, not going to be able to come up with some story that this is an ethnic dish. "

How is this dog related - The usual subject of this blog? It was so bad I couldn't imagine feeding it to the dogs.

Oh well, you win some, you lose some... more room for popcorn tonight!

COME ON !! you need some picture of the Final product ?? I do realize you need gluten free everything but Fish and Chips??? that would have require some wizardry I think. . . that seem raft with disaster from the start. I can only imagine (horribly imagine) what was in that batter. The chips were probably good though. I will be on the look out for you for a batter.

Actually, don't worry. . .soon my type II diabetes will set in and I will be high maintenance.

Ah Lisa,
Did you not put baking powder with your rice flour? No substituting Pellegrino for the soda water -- the batter needs the extra lift!
