I just had to sign a "Gift Disclosure" form. I received no gifts, I traded no favors or services associated with my job for personal gifts or gratuities and I had nothing to report. Missed out again!

I was away from home from Thanksgiving day until this past Friday night.
My greeting upon finally being home? ...A gnarly sickness that kept me on the couch Saturday through this morning.

Today it feels really darn good finally being back to work.

I want to build what I call a "punch wall" in my basement: A four by eight wall that I tack 1/2" drywall to. Draw on it, paint it, hang posters, whatever. Then, on bad days, just punch away at it. After it's demolished, remove drywall pieces and hang some new for the next round.

Is that how you do it?

I can't get authentic andouille in Wisconsin -- but my local butcher makes his own "Cajun smoked brats" which are a darned good substitute.

I soak 1 lb dry red beans overnight. They go into the crock with a good-sized chunk of smoked ham bone end. (I like ham much better than a smoked hock.)

Add enough water to cover the beans. 2 bay leaves & a tsp of rosemary.

Then sliced rounds of smoked cajun brats. I used to brown these, but we like the texture better just leaving them alone.

Sweat the trinity good in some bacon drippings, with some added carrots and garlic a jalapeño.

Stew in the crock pot until beans are tender. Spice blend goes in at the end of the cook. (2 tsp cajun salt, 1 tsp each of basil, sage, thyme, black pepper. A couple tbs of Worcestershire.)

Break up the ham, pull out the bones, mash some of the beans, serve over rice with Louisiana Hot Sauce.

That's about it. Not that anyone cares.

Yesterday morning I had one of those, “I might throw up,” moments. Then I had to. So I quick stepped to the W/C. I had way too many peanuts the night before. And maybe a wee too much bourbon. Maybe.
