Busy day in the kitchen.

My favorite butcher shop had fresh oysters for sale.

So Oyster Stew for lunch.

And crock of beefy Kiss Asterisk* Chili for dinner.

*Only has a couple of jalapeño peppers.




I gotta ask JimVH for some pointers on making Most Awesome Chili.

I roasted a chicken yesterday and made some gravy from the giblets. (Giblets, that's a laugh; the package said "giblets may be in pieces". The only thing in the package was the neck. But it was good broth and I went with a darker roux than usual just for fun. Dang, it was good.) I said tellwidit to the low-carb and mashed up some po-ta-toes with butter and cream. Added some steamed broccoli and a good meal was had by all.

Smoked pork butt shredded for tacos (soft corn tortilla, guacamole, pico, shredded lettuce, onion, sour cream, homemade hot sauce, and cheddar cheese) and a Shiner's Holiday Cheer.

I made a pot of Chicken Noodle soup, served with crusty French bread.
I make darned good Chicken Noodle Soup and there are lots of variations to keep it interesting.

Mrs. UB's homemade chili in a homemade bread bowl.

Tasty.

Disclaimer: Although it may look like Jared made or photographed this food, it looked appetizing in person. I don't have a fancy-pants camera like Goose55 or Skip. And even if I did, the photograph would make the food look bland and unappetizing. You know, like that U2 album that everyone was forced to get on iTunes a few years ago. Or Goose55 anytime.

Brother, if you are ever passing through, let me know. You're always welcome.

Up until a few minutes ago, I always wanted to share a meal with Bob, too. That grapefruit made me worry, though.

Not feeling well and that was the only thing in the kitchen that looked appetizing.
