Cooking Lesson 101

I tried making chicken wings last night. I had bought myself a fryer for Christmas, and figured, "hell, good of time as any. I'm home tonight, I'll do laundry, I'll make dinner, I'll watch a DVD."

Well, we learned (the hard way) why this is not a good idea.

First, you can really only cook 3 chicken wings at a time, so if you want 6 chicken wings, the first 3 are cold by the time the other 3 come out.

Second, and more importantly, my ENTIRE house smells AWFUL now. Like oil. But it's in the friggin' AIR. When you breath, you are breathing oil, I swear to god.

Mental note, if you get a craving for chiken wings, just GO OUT TO EAT. DO NOT attempt this on your own.

    Maybe you'll get one last gift from the deep fryer - a bad case of the runs.

    Had a similar stint with a deep fryer, have not intentions of ever allowing one in the house again.

    It was last night and I was ok today, so I assume I don't get that particular gift.

    FYI: There are deep fryers available with a closing lid and an electrical air filter to prevent airborne oil....

    Do not get one of those either; they are unforgiveably disgustingly dirty cuz as soon as you open the lid to take it out, oil will start spattering everywhere with a nice burst of oil into the air.

    I'm with you! Repeating mantra,
    "Just go out to eeeeeeeat!"

    I don't fry anything, partly b/c it's so bad for you but mostly b/c it makes everything stink of grease and animal flesh. The only partial cure I've found is incense, which knocks out smell rather than covers it up. L'Occitaine has some that are orange-based that work nicely in a kitchen.

    I have always been hit-or-miss with frying. The one thing about frying is to not leave it unattended...which I am notorious for doing when I am not cooking for someone.

    I like going out for wings but I have better sauce :-).
