The wife and I have a weekly tradition as of late, where we spend our early Saturday afternoon--or occasionally Sunday, schedule permitting--doing the weekly grocery shopping along with whatever other errands are required by life in 2022. We started the practice maybe a year or so ago, when we finally got tired of having our … Continue reading The American Grocery Experience Of Doom
Anyway, here we were with a full mound of leftover turkey breast (mound is the metric designation, mind you. In Imperial units it was a chunk-load), and it's not leftover turkey sandwich season. What's a family to do then? Captain Obvious would like to suggest perhaps making a turkey pie...
So yeah, I don't see why you wouldn't want to doughnut on a Monday these days...
I was thinking happy thoughts and having fond remembrances this morning of the Before Times, lo, 10 days ago, when a person in America could saunter up to a bar and grill—hell, even an Applebee’s, if you were pressed for a spot—and order a big sloppy cheeseburger and a cold beer. They were good times, … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 7
Somehow it's already 11 pm and I'm just now starting to write today's post. When I was doing the Daily Sock, I'll admit that happened all too often as well, but I had kind of hoped not to already be pushing the limits of what could be accomplished in a day on Day. Freakin'. One. … Continue reading Day One
Not knowing how many more days 80+ degree days 2018 is going to give us, I broke out the tubed meats this afternoon and fired up the grill. To go with the today's end-of-summer weekend grilling, I was glad to see I still had a pair of hot dog anklets in the drawer this morning. … Continue reading One More Blast At The Grill
It seems that yesterday was National Doughnut Day, which I guess has been a thing since, like, the Depression? Regardless, in had other things needing some sockey attention yesterday, and even I'm not crazy enough to attempt multiple pairs of socks in one day. Which means recognition of National Doughnut day had to be a … Continue reading Belated But Still Beloved
These hamburgers really didn't have much to do with my day today. I didn't have a burger and had no real plan to grill when I put them on this morning. But I like the black background and, let's be honest, who doesn't want a nice juicy burger at the end of a long week? … Continue reading That IS A Tasty Burger!
Sitting out on our back patio tonight after a quick storm raced through the area (leaving the air outside 10 degrees hotter and roughly 3000% more humid), I just happened to peek at our peppers. Lo and behold, after weeks of seeing naught but blooms and the occasional wee sprouts, I found some things growing. … Continue reading Hey, there, ‘lil guys
On occasion, if you're lucky, one a random Wednesday night, a seven year old who happens to live at the same address as you do might come up to you out of the blue and ask, "Dad, can we make oatmeal cookies like we used to last year?" And, sure, at first you hesitate … Continue reading A Night For Last Year’s Cookies
