It's the Friday Newsletter! But it has a new hat!
Not me googling flight prices to Louisville for an in-person Action Cookbook Lifestyle Network event
My wife keeps telling me I need to get out of the house more. She didn't say anything about how far I could go, so Louisville here I come.
I like boudin blanc. I like paella. I would eat the hell out of those paella balls. If I have any thoughts at all about the results, it’s that I bet they don’t even need the sauce & aoli, and that while it would probably be a bit of a faff, smaller ones would be the most amazing tapas. I’m willing to be a guinea pig should you need one
SCOTT ARE YOU OPENING A POP UP RESTAURANT FOR YOUR LIVE EVENT
So glad Louisville is driving distance!! We'll have to have an official ACBN Caravan from Columbus, picking up Cincy folks on the way haha! Scott, so thrilled to see ACBN thriving. Happy weekend!
a tour of a random southern city AND the chance to meet the OG corgi floof? Sign me right the hell up
Todays recipe is the reason why I gifted a subscription to my parents. There was an audible gasp when I scrolled down to the photo of the finished Barcelona Ball and that cross section *chefs kiss*
Pretty sure the next time the family gets together the menu will consist of ACB creations.
I enjoy Star Trek Picard, and tried to watch the ready room, which Wheaton hosts, but he's just so unpleasantly over the top that I couldn't take it. Less, please.
I'm gonna read Kaiju ASAP
Is there anything Wil Wheaton can't actively make worse?
So… it’s May, so you must know what that means for anyone from Indiana. This morning, the cannons boomed in Speedway, IN; signaling the beginning of the best month of the year…. Since the Derby has an iconic cocktail for the fastest 2 minutes in sports, I really think that The Greatest Spectacle in Racing needs one too (besides anything from Anheiser Busch). Can you invent “the spark plug?! Maybe something that pairs well with flattened, fried pork tenderloin?!?!?!?
Boudin balls were my favorite thing about law school in Louisiana. All of us out of staters fell in love with them. And if it's any consolation/defense against purists, there were at least 5 kinds of boudin - including crawfish boudin - regularly commercially available at the store in Baton Rouge. So I'm here for your interpretation.
Also, and I may have told this here before: no fewer than three of my fellow out of state classmates and I all got dogs that we named Boudin during law school. It's a thing. (RIP to my ex's best buddy, Boudin the Boston terrier, nine pounds of adorable pugnaciousness who tolerated me and soul-bonded to him, 2007-2019).
Serious FOMO seeing Prince Daddy in today’s newsletter after missing them when they came to town last week since I couldn’t find anyone to go with.
I’d love to hear your take on going to concerts solo. I’ve yet to try it myself but my New Years resolution was to go to more concerts and trying to find someone to go with can be a huge bottleneck.
Dagnabbit, we dumped HBO a while back and I've been feeling super smug about that. I completely forgot about Barry.
Pre-pandemic a pal of mine had a little feature on Chicago public TV where every Friday they'd take something and, well, deepfry it in oil. You might enjoy.
I almost stopped at organ meat because 🤮 but glad I didn't, those sound delicious!! A live event with food like that would absolutely draw me in! And "thanks" for the Nsync earworm. I might come back and curse you again in a few hours.
Prince Daddy hive assemble!
Ok but how do you pronounce the name of the balls
