What to cook on Saturdays

What are you doing this weekend?














I am not too sure about my own plans, but if you have a tendency of desiring to stay at home, or NOT during the weekend let me share with you my favorite and simplest things to cook and pack up for the park,or eat at home.


















For some people, spending the weekend at the kitchen is like their idea of the LEAST cool way of Carpe Diem during the couple of hours they get off work...an idea illogical to me because yes, you guessed it I belief COOKING IS CHEAPER THAN THERAPY.














Nonetheless and trying to empathize with hard working house wives and moms all over the world, whose once ginormous fire flame for cooking is now a bonfire put off due to extreme tiredness, Saturday Simple(s) was designed to share 30 minutes or less meals that everyone loves. It's a win-win.

So here's our first Saturday Simple: Mini Corn Dogs

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • Another little bit of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil
  • hot dog sausages (I like Oscar Meyer's)*
  • Wooden Skewers (as many as the amount of hot dogs you are doing)**

*...I did not use Oscar Meyer's...I ran to a super cheap supermarket, because I was in a hurry to eat something and that was the nearest place. I know.

Procedure
  1. Boil the sausages.
  2. Once boiled, remove them from the water and let them sit on a plate for a little bit.
  3. Batter the egg, add salt & pepper.
  4. In a medium bowl mix all the first 8  ingredients, including the battered egg with salt and pepper.
  5. Whisk until all the lumps have disappeared.
  6. Pour the mix into a tall glass.
  7. Cut the sausages in half.
  8. Insert the wooden skewers into the halved sausages.
  9. In a small pot pour vegetable oil, enough so that you can dunk the sausages. Set on medium heat.
  10. Now, take the extra little bit of all purpose flour and pour it on plate.
  11. Rub the sausages on the all purpose flour. Remove the excess.
  12. Cover a plate with a paper towel.
  13. Dunk the sausages into the batter.
  14. Immediately dunk into the now hot oil.
  15. Fry until the batter is golden.
  16. Remove them, let them sit on the paper towel covered paper.
  17. Serve with mustard.


















¡Buen provecho!
