I'm Feeling Butter Now!!

Recently I swapped a pint of pickled okra with recipe for 2 lobster tails with a gal at work. I swapped with the gal, She didnt come with the lobster. I thought it was a good trade but the wife wanted nothing to do with the lobster but then again she didn’t care for the pickled okra either. I have been longing for a chance to cook it.

The wife is out of town this weekend. She and her sisters are at a weekend scrapbooking retreat.

SOOOOO, while she was busy cutting and gluing it was time to fire up the grill. I rang up my oldest daughter. No need to twist her arm. We fixed broiled asparagus, garlic bread, pasta salad and topped it off with some sweet iced tea. Cooking right next to the tails were some hot dogs for little A. What a meal.

French toast,eggs and bacon in the morning. Take your time hun we aint suffering at home.

Cats Too? Or Cat Stew?

I don’t particularly care for cats. My wife has 2 so I tolerate them. I think they know I don’t like them a lot so they tend to lay on me and rub my leg to aggravate me. I have cleaned up more hairballs than I like and if you have never had a cat don’t be fooled, it looks nothing like a ball. They drive me nuts but never have they driven me to the point that Gary Korkuc went to.

Police in Buffalo, NY pulled him over for running a stoplight. They then discovered a live cat in the trunk marinating in oil and peppers. Seems the cat was a bit too unruly so he decided to eat it. I have seen construction workers heat their food on hot vehicle engines but I have never seen a recipe that calls for driving around with the dish in the trunk first. So far he is charged with cruelty to animals and has been released. Still pending is the decision to charge him with not using the traditional Buffalo Sauce and the Health Department is looking to place a “D” Sanitation Grade on his car.

The cat, Navarro, was taken to the SPCA where he was checked out and cleaned up. He was put up for adoption and rumor has it that several restaurants have shown interest.

Just Kidding.

He was actually adopted and given a new name. The new owner calls him Oliver. No comment if that came from the Olive oil smell.
