Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
"Holy s**t that's good," she said. So she took a second piece. And then a third.
"For quality control," she explained.
So I went to Baja Ranch Market, where I bought eight Telera rolls, fresh and soft as a baby's bottom, for $2.67. They were perfect.
(The other day I was having a drink at the bar of my favorite restaurant in Pasadena, chatting with the bartender. He was talking about the fact that they use Telera rolls for their sandwiches and I mentioned that I usually get them at Baja Ranch - actually I called it "King Ranch," I haven't gotten used to the name change yet - for 33 cents each. "I know," he said, "how come everyone in town doesn't know about them?" Well, now everyone does. Or at least twenty people, I guess.)
"You are now 100 for 100," Murph said. (I don't believe I have actually cooked him 100 meals over the years, it's probably only half that, but I appreciate the compliment.)
"Wait!" she said. "Let me put some of the vinegar sauce on it and you can take an action shot."
You action shot-loving people have created monsters out of all my friends.
