You had best share it.
I'm considering campaigning for the soup course at the upcoming-but-yet-to-be-scheduled food festivities with yourself, myself, and herself. The stock was also homemade (kind of - bones from a couple of Jewel rotisseries) and I have a frozen duck in the bottom of the freezer that's probably been there too long for normal noms, but may be perfect for a four-hour stock. I'm going to give it a try and see what happens...

Excellent plan. We need to coordinate in June it appears....

Last night, socca and broiled veggies. Tonight, homemade bisquits, bacon, and honey.

Tacos. It's a saga. Ni got some molluscum frozen off today. Took it like a champ for a six year old. Mommy promises expensive restaurant. Mommy has second thoughts. Mommy stays extra late at the office, telling no one until too late to make nice dinner.


I set mommy's plate outside. It's raining outside. I'll see her passive agression and raise to levels of effing violently pissed.

I was considering stopping off for tacos on the way home. I'm not so sure now...

Stopping for tacos is cool. Making a dago throw a packet of taco seasoning into a pound of ground beef and calling it a home cooked meal is a personal insult. My family deserves better.

I love reading about your dinners, sir. You do well by yourself.

Wife cooked tonight. Miso soup, some diced chicken, and bok choy and mushrooms. I gather its the Japanese version of fried catfish and hush puppies in terms of authentic home cooking.

Pulled pork sandwiches and tacos. Your choice.

The Boy did. I had a taco and The Ladies each elected to go with the sandwich.

I made succotash last night in my cast iron pan-- with some thick cut peppered bacon and chunks of center cut beef tenderloin in a separate cast iron pan.

Succotash was:
olive oil
minced fresh garlic
onions small diced
multi colored small potatoes -- diced

Cook while slicing 1/3 of a red pepper and toss that in

dice zucchini and yellow squash to place on top

Stirred occasional and had bits stick to the pan-- add some water to release the stuck parts (deglaze)-- a little mush from the potatoes, onions and garlic pulled into the rest of the veggies. Add butter (Amish) to melt into and cook until all heated. Nice consistency on potatoes, pepper, squash, etc. while onions are not noticeable.

My bride said several times it was not as bad as she expected. After the third time I asked if she was looking for the word "good" and she repeated again that it wasn't as bad as she expected.
She'd never had succotash.
