On Sunday Dinner And Lenses (with an edit for SCB)

The cardinal rule of Sunday dinner at my house is, there had better be leftovers. Which is why I did this with four pounds of pork shoulder, carrots, tomatoes, onions and celery (and a blop of white wine [the next unit up from a splash]). And a chicken. And a couple of pounds of asparagus. And onion potatoes, which everybody liked, but all gave me weird looks when I told them there was bacon grease in there (you have to caramelize the onions for ever in the bacon grease). So I could have beautiful leftovers for the next two to three days. Yum.

Also, it is amazing what a good lens can do.


Thanks for sharing, Zack. There are far too many unflattering pictures of me on the internet.


Also, I may need to figure out how to schedule posts. Then all my posts wouldn't end up being put up two days after I write them.

edit: I want to mail one of these to SCB for her brainstorming sessions.

Bacon grease? Bacon???? bacon bacon bacon...

And I *LOVE* the idea of the shower notepad! It's perfect for people like me whose best thinking occurs in the Thinking Room!

Lorijo, I couldn't figure out why everyone was giving me weird looks about the bacon grease, I thought it was normal too!

SCB, as soon as I saw that pad I thought of you.

Emma, tell me about it! Eight years! When are you coming back to this side of the pond? Maybe next time we go visit Matt's relatives (someday) we can squeeze in a little trip up north to see you...
