One of the new adventures in my life (thanks, Sissy!) involves asking every eatery what kind of oil they use to fry their french fries in, and do they use the same grease to fry meats?
I have no idea how my friends with children with food allergies ever let their kiddos dine anywhere BUT at home. And just so you know, Chick Fil A uses peanut oil. Great for Sissy, but not for the folks with peanut allergies!
Applebees uses vegetable oil. Hmmm… Is that safe for a dog with corn allergies? I haven’t figured that out yet.
Sticks, a local kabob “chain”, uses canola oil.
We don’t fry much at home. I have several different kinds of oil to suit baking and such, but EVOO – extra virgin olive oil – is what I reach for the most. What do you use? Why? Is it a matter of taste? Health? I know different oils have different frying temperatures, so fill me in on what’s in your pantry and why.
Weekend plans?! My weekend has already started, as far as I’m concerned. The girls are at work with me, and Ann and lunch (from Sticks) will be arriving any minute now.
Tonight is all about finding my house again. When both human residents are on the run all week, things spiral out of control. Frankly, I was delighted to find one pair of crop pants, TWO pairs of shorts and a skort still clean! I didn’t realize I had options at this point.
The rest of the weekend is about relaxing. Unless I’m sadly mistaken, we don’t have a single plan. That means I can hang out with Endora (my name for the Wii, because telling my Gmail chat buddies that I’m off to Wii just sounds rude), spin, re-start my Cotty sock on my new ChiaoGoo Red Stainless circular (thank you Dog House Yarns & More for that very special delivery – no, they aren’t offering mail order yet, but that’s what very long-time friends are for!), let Gretchen in and out, etc.
What’s on your weekend agenda?
