When do you need a Jenn Louis around?  There are many fine answers to that question as we’ve come to find out over the past month and this week especially as we’ve counted down the days until Lincoln Pizzeria in reposts on Harry’s Instagram.  Pistachio Salted Rocky Road, Spicy Lacquered Fried Chicken, Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast Roulade…  We are just full of love for this one, and it’s not just the food. “Why? Cuz I can organize stuff? I’m like the effing container store,” she responded. Exactly.

So it was a challenging task to pick only five more reasons but that’s what we’ve done with Jenn’s help for today’s Friday List, a fun loving favorite category here on The Genuine Kitchen since its inception on the home of fun at care of Ms. Ellie Groden.  There will be more where this came from even after next week’s pop-up, when we take our guest on a little giro around Miami proper.  The last time we guided a serious tour was for Ed Levine, and this second generation Miami native probably learned as much about her fair city as he did.  Always fun to be a tourist in your own backyard, especially through eager eyes. So without further adieu, Jenn’s Friday List.

A Friday List | When You Want a Jenn Louis Around

1) You’re navigating Everglades National Park’s 10,000 Islands and the unthinkable happens. Not only do you run out of GORP, but there’s a hole in your canoe and it’s taking on water fast.  A moment later, you spot a gator wake forming in the distance…

2) When you need things organized – I rule at that game

3) When you need a solid 4/4 drum beat

4) When you are looking for a little food porn on Instagram

5) This coming Wednesday at Harry’s Pizzeria
