Wow was it ever cold this morning.
I Found A Way To Make A Jalapeño Burn
The other day I lamented that today’s jalapeños weren’t as spicy hot as days gone by.
Last night I “invented” a new dish called “Meatball Fajitas” in order to use up the leftover flour tortillas, tomatoes, jalapeños, and garlic that I had from Sunday’s Super Bowl “Gringo Enchiladas.” In order to have a meat component I pulled out some of the frozen meatballs that I’ve had stored in the freezer and put them along with all of the cut up vegetables into my toaster oven.
Once my prep work was done I headed into the bathroom to scrub my hands and take care of some personal business. Needless to say my scrubbing wasn’t sufficient and major burning discomfort ensued. I learned a valuable lesson last night…
For what it’s worth, the meatball fajitas were delicious.

THIS SPACE LEFT EMPTY INTENTIONALLY
Now That They Have Space, I’ll Pimp Their Restaurant
For months I’ve been having lunch at Crawfish Shack Seafood (no website?) on Buford Highway. Tucked into a sideways-facing store front best located by the large Aloha Plaza sign next to it you may pass Crawfish Shack Seafood and never notice it.
Here’s a map which may help getting you there

Crawfish Shack Seafood is at 4337 Buford Hwy, Atlanta, GA 30341
Why am I recommending them now? Because they’ve added more space so getting a table is no longer a pain in the ass, and I love fried seafood and can highly recommend any of their combo plates. During past visits I’ve loved the combo plates featuring grouper, catfish, and tilapia. Each of these plates is served with four perfectly-fried shrimp and two side dishes of your choosing (I’ve had the hush puppies — not great, corn on the cob — great, french fries — great, and boiled potatoes — good). Crawfish Shack Seafood also serves up Po’ Boys these days, but I don’t recommend them because they seem overpriced for the amount of food provided.
So if you like fried seafood (or steamed crawfish, or raw oysters) and find yourself along Buford Highway near Peachtree-Dekalb Airport around lunch time I highly recommend you pay Crawfish Shack Seafood a visit.
I Should Start Logging My Stair Climbing
About the only exercise that I am getting these days is climbing six floors’ worth of stairs every day. In fact, on many days I do this climb twice! Sure, calling this work “exercise” may be stretching the truth someone if not for the fact that I’m breathless by the time I reach the sixth floor.
I do need to make time to exercise as my pants are getting no looser these days. 🙁
