There's a pie shop run by a bevy of irritatingly bubbly hippie girls near my new place. Somehow they've taken it into their heads that they want to "adopt" me and they do this by giving me all manner of pie and pastries both sweet and savory, either when I walk by or by actually leaving such on my front doorstep. In exchange, they ask that I do things like come into their shop and tell them stories, do magic tricks, or recite poems.

I'd like to say I disapprove. I'd like to, but I don't.

If it will help, you can unleash a reckoning on Hugo. He said he'd be happy to be your target for the day.

Socca, with olive oil for dipping; and various grilled veggies.

I've talked about socca here before; a search may find it. The recipe isn't handy at the moment, but it came from a related article in the NYT, 4 or 5 years ago. I use more black pepper, less rosemary, and a 12" black iron skillet. Good comfort food.

Grandkids spent the night. I took our GS fishing while my wife and GD made chocolate covered pretzels. For dinner was hot dogs on the grill, along with grilled bass filets (my grandsons bass). It was fun to eat while listening to coyotes howling. But when they sounded too close my grandaughter jumped up and ran to the house!

Something called a Yumm Bowl. One of the goddamn hippie women who are always giving me food insists that I eat it.

Homemade soup. Wife has nasty cold so i made my cold buster soup. It's pretty much just a head of garlic, ginger root, and 2 onions, with a little chicken.

Sounds similar to mine, but I add purple cabbage, white wine, a little lemon juice and honey, and have green onion and cornbread on the side.
