Yesterday, I completed my blog entry, clicked “publish”, checked the post, and was greeted with this…
I checked the connection, then switched browsers, updated my plug-ins…an hour later, my blog was still down. And I was feeling…ambivalent. On the one hand, I was found the prospect of losing the chronicled details of the last 15+ years deeply disappointing; but on the other hand, there was a sense of relief. 15+ years of daily blogging can get a little taxing after a while. It was a feeling akin to hearing there was a chance twitter could go down permanently. On the one hand, I would lose a crucial industry and information lifeline. On the other, I would free up A LOT of free time.
Anyway, the blog was restore and twitter never went away after all. So here we are again!

Spoiler alert: They were delicious. But very labor intensive. After the prep and blanching, I brought them to a boil and then simmered them for an hour with sauteed onions, garlic, pepper, salt, chilis, bay leaves, anise, and sake, then chilled them overnight before tossing them in kochujang, mirin, soy sauce, garlic powder, Korean spices, and sugar and finishing them under the broiler for about ten minutes.
A lot of work.
Next time, I may just stick to chicken butts.
