aliedwards Trying this again. Round two to Houston. #tryingtogettohouston 2d
  •   meghannandrew Just started that book last night after listening to the Fresh Air interview. If you need recommendations in Houston, please message me! I'm here! 2d
  •   love2takepics300 My pocket looks just like that when I fly too..books, snacks & drink! 2d
  •   jamieleija Ya gotta live here Ali. It's taken me nearly 4 years to get to this point too! There's so much fabulous food and awesome little gatherings. You just have to know where to look. My British coworker once told me "Houston isn't a city to visit. It's a city to live in." 2d
  •   jamieleija .....aaand I totally misread that hashtag! LOL :) I thought it read "trying to GET Houston" sigh. Now on the same page 2d
  •   aliedwards @flushbookme nope - visiting friends 2d
  •   aliedwards @hellofromsarah12 @picklesandpeanut_ I'm totally into it - super interesting (I'm about 100 pages in) 2d
  •   hellofromsarah12 Awesome! 2d
  •   charmwilliams I live just outside Houston- so hello to you :) 2d

aliedwards It's never a good sign when there's a guy walking outside along your plane as it's being towed back to the gate after aborting take-off (during actual throttle for take off) because there was overheating happening in the tail. Missed a shot of the fire trucks. #tryingtogettohouston 3d
  •   sarah_sabri81 Not good. 2d
  •   jessmcdougall So glad you're safe. Get there!! 2d
  •   tcscraps I would freak out 2d
  •   tigermucha Fire trucks and planes don't go together. Happens to me when we lost an engine shortly after takeoff. We suddenly too a steep climb to glide in for a landing at another airport. I was sitting right by the engine that stopped and landing in Baltimore the runway was packed with red flashing lights. One of the smoothest landings ever. The pilots got a standing ovation. Glad you made it out on another flight. 2d
  •   orangesweater Been there - so happy you are safe!!! 2d
  •   maelynnf Omg .. hope everything's okay 2d
  •   anniesamuels No bueno. 1d

aliedwards Simon had a rough day dealing with some frustrations (lost his favorite hat after throwing it on the ground after having to wait his turn for a preferred activity and then running out of time). So we are capping the day with tostadas, cold pizza and Fantastic Mr. Fox (hoping to see the new Wes Anderson movie this weekend). 1w
  •   jillkane25 Reading this reminds me of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I still read it. "There were Lima beans for dinner and I hate limas. There was kissing on TV and I hate kissing." I hope things are looking up ;) 1w
  •   sosobellatoo Love that movie. 1w
  •   jessmcdougall Love you guys. 1w
  •   annaaspnes Had a similar kind of day Simon. 1w
  •   loveanddareit Love your shoes dude! 1w
  •   feathrencox This movie is a amazing!!!!!!! 1w

aliedwards Looking down in the peonies that will bloom in a month or so. 1w
  •   wagnerjb Jealous, too hot here in TX. 1w
  •   monica_fabian I'm always afraid to grow these...are difficult to care/grow? 1w
  •   monica_fabian ^they 1w
  •   intulsa @monica_fabian I don't think so. My grandma has had hers for 40+ years. She gave me a cutting... Took two years to bloom and then I moved :( 1w
  •   monica_fabian I'm going to try these this year, they are so pretty. Wish me luck ;) 1w
  •   albertahenhouse I love my peonies! I am totally stalking their every move! 1w
  •   aliedwards @monica_fabian I think it just depends on soil. I have about 10-15 planted around the yard. Some take a few years before they produce blooms and others bloomed the first year (those were ones I paid more for that were bigger when I bought them). I have some in planters that still haven't produced blooms - should probably move them into the ground somewhere. They are so worth it! 1w
  •   aliedwards @albertahenhouse that's totally what I do! 1w

aliedwards So the results were not too bad. Edible. Ha. Simon was happy until he tasted it and then told me it didn't taste like the fried chicken he had on the cruise ship. I told him this was my first time and that I need some practice. Next time buttermilk soak and more flavor in the flour mixture (just need more of that period). I fried then baked a la @thepioneerwoman to make sure it was done. And then Aaron texted me and told me he was an expert so we'll see about that. #lovemondaycooking 1w
  •   tigermucha Fried chicken is hard. I cannot make it but my hubby can. His secret is the seasoned flour he uses. It is ground and mixed locally near where we live at an old flour mill. 1w
  •   jlhufford Alton brown has a good recipe! 1w
  •   patticlay Kentucky Colonel Seasoned Flour is the key! We are serious about fried chicken in Kentucky. 1w
  •   scrappinbarbw Lol Simon! 1w
  •   suetr Fried Chicken is an art form! Guess you'll just have to keep on frying ! 1w
  •   teresaigo @Patticlay is right Kentucky Colonel Seasoned Flour is the best 1w
  •   mamaofpenelope The everyday food cookbook has a great recipe that's baked. 1w

aliedwards See that face? Attempting fried chicken for the first time (because Simon keeps talking about it). Reading recipes and trying to figure out what in the heck I'm doing. 1w
  •   michellejacquemet Egg dip, then Parmesan cheese. It is the only way... 1w
  •   heidieaton Pioneer woman's recipe is the best! 1w
  •   em2thej Barefoot Contessa buttermilk fried chicken. 1w
  •   carriec You're such a good mom. :) 1w
  •   kitkit47 Lol. 1w
  •   meutod2 @aliedwards I do trisha year-olds fried chicken. Follow it to a T and everyone loves it every time. I think the key is brining the chicken then night before in salt water. Keep a chicken moist and use peanut oil 1w
  •   meutod2 Trisha yearwoods not trisha year old. .. what's that? Lol 1w
