brats and kraut
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal

I am jealous, Judge. Two of my favorite things, but my wife is a furriner and my kids are kids.

We had nabe, which is essentially a do it yourself soup made at the table. Vegetables and meats or fish are boiled in the broth. Later, rice or udon noodles are added. Far better than it sounds.

But still, brats and kraut.

Cracked Dungeness crab & beer.
An old family tradition from my mom's side having something to do with the Premier of The Wizard of Oz in 1939, but I digress.
Too indulgent for Lent unless of course the crab is on sale, which it happens to be right now.
I've got cole slaw and warm sourdough for Mr. Crab's companions, along with an IPA.
I'm not especially fond of IPA but two bottles of the stuff is what we have in the fridge---left over from a dinner party awhile back.
It did occur to me that buying some beer that I really like for tonight may be too indulgent for Lent.
I'm already pushing the envelope with the crab.
I'll just have to suck it up and cleanse the fridge of that IPA.
The original menu calls for steam beer, btw.

Whoa. That's a meal, Hovannes.

I broiled a steak and heated up last night's al oglio with a bit more oil, cheese, a bit of nutmeg and peperoncini and used the steak grease as an auxiliary pasta sauce.

Kids didn't know it was leftovers.

You eat better during your fast than I do in the days leading up to it.

Some fried shrimp tonight from one of the KC Halls sure sounds good though.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Grilled cheese sandwiches on jalapeño bread with a little taco meat and spinach just for fun. Next time I’ll hit ‘em with a bit more hot sauce.

Homemade calzones.
It’s almost believable, but I love it most of the time whether it’s true or not.
