I find myself feeling grateful for a lot of things lately. I’m grateful for running water, the end of March madness, good friends, loving family, but most of all I’m grateful that my house is still standing.
It was a close one, I want to tell you – downright touch and go for a few minutes there this morning. Was it a fire? Gas leak? Sinkhole? UFO crash? No. It was a homeschooling science experiment that almost went horribly awry.
You see, Mr. Hungry is all guy – he and his brothers LOVED blowing stuff up when they were kids (still do). Potato cannons, cherry bombs, you name it. So when Hungry Jr.’s science class called for inflating a balloon using a bottle and a volatile mix of baking soda and vinegar, and Mr Hungry volunteered to assist, I knew it was a recipe for trouble.
- Chicken skin (as much as you can get your hands on)
- oil for frying
- goat cheese, softened
