Beer-battered Fish and Asparagus Fries
There’s a simple thing to remember with beer batters and batters of any kind, really, and that is 1:1:1.
1 cup flour
1 cup beer (liquid)
1 tsp. salt
For our purposes, I embellished with 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1 tbsp. lemon zest because I’m the prettiest girl and deserve nice things.
Dip asparagus, beat off excess, fry it up at 375°F. Do the vegetables first always when using the same oil. You don’t want your veg smelling like fish. No one likes fishy veg. Fry up fish at 320°F and serve. 
Asparagus being a nice springtime-appropriate treat works very well with this dish. Fried fish is fried fish and if you don’t know what that tastes like already, I feel bad for you. That asparagus fry is something-else good and it’s green.

Sorry about falling off with updating this, folks. It’s been a bit hectic with other things. Between you and me (Dennis) though, Gabe says some wild things in this episode.

Irish Gold (w/Mint)
2 parts Irish Whiskey
1/2 part Peach Schnapps
Splash of Orange Juice
Mix in glass, fill with Ginger Ale 
Garnish with Mint Leaves
This drink is very nice. I would have liked anything by this part of the evening but it was good. Not overly sweet, pleasant, and not too girly.

Hotel Room Caprese Grilled Cheese

Sourdough bread
Fresh Mozzarella
Sliced Tomato
Fresh Basil
Red pepper flakes
Butter
First thing you want to do is find the iron that your hotel room has. Look in the closet next to the door, it’s probably in there. Set it to its highest heat setting (probably linen, anything less than cotton won’t brown your bread).
Place bare bread down on frying pan. 
Add all ingredients on bread.
Butter piece of bread and place on top of your sandwich with the butter facing up.
Place iron on top and press down lightly. Allow bread to brown and cheese to melt, about 6 minutes.
Flip sandwich and spread butter on bread and repeat step 5.
This is a better sandwich than anything room service would make for you. The only downside is having to pack in food and cleaning up a mess in the room. The last thing is that it makes your room smell like an italian restaurant for a little bit.

After having shot the last episode 3 times we decided to not release it. We spent around $150 on rebuying ingredients. Stupid camera issues. Anyway, this is the newest episode. We made it special by taking it all the way to Las Vegas. I hope you enjoy.

Take Three

So we’re having some camera issues. We’ve already shot the next episode twice in a row and now we’re going for a third. I am sick of the smell of food in this condo.

You like food and fancy drinks, right? Of course you do!

This is OK’s Happy Hour.

Thank me later for introducing you to your new favorite show.

The first few seconds of this one is terribly embarrassing. Super super bad.
