Chicken and Waffles Debate, Techie Style! (with bonus Peeps!)

Gentle Readers, lean in close, it’s confession time. The Practical Cook isn’t even going to pretend to go to the grocery store this week. Life and business have conspired to make eating on the road a necessity this week. It’s a holiday weekend for many, and I’m going to take a break as well.

Peep Show

Peep Show

However, in the spirit of rebirth and renewal, I’m leaving you with two videos. I am going to try to get back in the habit of video blogging. First up, my day job sometimes crosses over  into my hobby. Watch as technology and waffles clash forks in this hotly contentious chicken and waffles episode of my video podcast, EngineersUnplugged.com

Second, an oldie but goodie, for all you Peep haters out there:

Enjoy your weekend! Questions or comments, drop them in the comments section or on Twitter!

Weekly Menus: Week of 5/20/2012

Gentle Readers, The Practical Cook simply adores the internet. Where else can one go and find quality chicken and waffles suggestions with a simple question or two? Yes, it’s time to take the quest on the road again, I’m heading to Vegas for work, and conveniently pairing my love of chicken and waffles with my day job, which is getting people to eat chicken and waffles as an integrated stack. (Forgive the pun, for those of you who know “work me.”)

Fried chicken and waffles at Dame's. Wow.

But I digress, this is what the home team will be eating while I’m away. Thanks again to The Practical Cook’s Mom, who ran roughshod over my initial meal suggestions. And will bring an arsenal of ingredients no matter what. So here’s what may or  may not be eaten next week:

And the Four Square Grocery List:

The CSA will be delayed a week for simplicity’s sake.

Which all translates to:

Sunday: Pizza?
We’re hosting some Complicated Vegetarians, so the menu is TBD. Pizza is always a good choice in this situation, as is pasta bar.

Monday: Beans and Rice (Burritos) or Spinach Pie
There were some artistic differences here. I was suggesting one thing, TPC’s Mom will cook another. Do I really have anything to say about it? No. Will my kids pick her dish over mine? Every time.

Tuesday: Sammies
A plate of sammies cut into quarters is a great meal. Cut off the crusts and call it high tea.

Sandwiches, fruit, and brownies on a fancy tiered platter.

Wednesday: Spaghetti and Salad
A meal of my youth, with meat sauce. Of course we typically had it with black-eyed peas or some other prominent Italian vegetable. (We were fusion before it was cool.)

Thursday: Sausage and Bok Choy or some green veg
The bok choy experiment may wait till my return. I’ve been working with recipes to improve bok choy consumption here at Chez Practical Cook. Next up, pork fat.

Friday: Leftover surprise!
Again, because my mom imports more food than most small countries, I feel certain there will be something of interest for me to create into something new. After a week of life in Sin City, with two dinners per day, I will need the detox challenge.

Saturday: Dine Out!
I plan to scope something new out with TPC’s Junior. We shall see if they are up to the adventure!

What’s your favorite chicken and waffles place? I’m gathering  a list for Las Vegas and for San Diego.  Post a comment below, or Tweet! And a special thanks to my mom, who I love to tease, but taught me everything important I needed to know.
