When I decided to grab food before heading back home today, Sticky Rice immediately came to mind. So I stopped in for this lovely dish, dry rub wings.
I’ve had this dish a few times before, the first being at the Knox Asia Festival in 2017. The Sticky Rice peeps had set up a booth with a few different types of chicken, and this was rubbed with some spices and some quite hot pepper. It was very oily, perfectly fried and trumped any KFC that may have come my way.
Do stop into them and try this dish, it’s worth the $8. Maybe one day I’ll have a whole-blown meal from them when time allows.
Stopped at Starbucks after the eclipse for some much needed A/C, headspace and to relax just a tad bit. Almost felt like I was on the road today; it was a real great feeling and enjoyed the outing.
Do apologize for the blurry screen, I didn’t realize I had something private on the screen until I got it ready for posting. So just had to obscure that.
A snap of some Indian food that got snagged from Bombay Palace earlier this evening. Medium-spiced Mushroom Matar, along with a garlic naan and chicken pakora. Very tasty combo all in all!
When I got my goody bag from Christina this holidays, I was introduced to the goodness known as Trader Joes. So the first free chance I got, I trekked it to Knoxville and visited the one out there, across from Toys-R-Us on Kingston Pike. This was my haul!
Goodies include fruit jellies, coffee, cheese puffs, cheese sticks, pub cheese and licorice sticks. Sue me, I love salty, savory cheese products.
I found myself out of the neighborhood this afternoon, in the small town known as Lenoir City. Why? To meet some kid who was going to sell me a Gameboy. The meetup spot was Jet Pizza; while waiting for him to show, I ordered a pizza to take back home with me. I snapped this photo while waiting around; it had an interesting aesthetic to it; certainly not like the chains I go to; and while not in grandeur to M & S back in Dover, it had an older look that made me think back to the late 90s somehow. Maybe I’ll stop in here one of these days again.
When I was going into West Town Mall tonight, I snapped this picture because the trash can puzzled me. Not so much that it was packed full to the brim, but how the people who did add trash anyway positioned their cups. I haven’t seen anything like it, considering how much nonsense I have to put up with people living here since I started going to college in 2005. So yes, this photo was warranted, to show that rare instance where East Tennessean residents actually had some care for their surroundings.
