Jowl.

img_2904Huh.

Saw this yesterday, thought it would be interesting to cook for new years day.   Apparently, its a southern thing – pork jowl with black eyed peas.  No peas for us.

Its going to be like the ox tail we did some time ago.

thumbnail_img_2907Instead, we braised the jowl in the broiler with red potatos, onions, etc., then put it in the crock pot for the day.   We shall see.

Disney rep says company plans to ‘thoroughly review’ alligator signage after attack

A tragedy it certainly was – an absolutely adorable 2-year old drowned by a gator – but you’re in Florida.  At an inland lake.  You have to assume there will be alligators, yes?

Heard this AM on Good Morning America – “What do you think people in Florida know about alligators that other people don’t?”

Media to the lowest common denominator.

“…angry black people in social media forums [who] have been blaming the incident on entrenched white privilege.

There’s just one flaw in this GorillaLivesMatter thesis. Can you guess what it is?

Sheesh.

Environmentalist increasingly means ignorant fool who majored in women’s studies because science classes involved math.

I have to go get dog food today. Note to self, pick up some pumpkins.
I haven’t carved a pumpkin in years – when I did last, the neighborhood kids carved obscenities into them.
At least we’ll get some pumpkins seeds.

Happy Halloween!
