    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    I would proffer the thought here that a pandemic that's killed over half a million of us and the means to fight it being seen as "politics" and as having "sides" is a huge part of the problem in this country that's necessitated Cigar Pass having a "no politics" rule in the first place. I'll...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 Sorry, bro. Sometimes the level of sheer fragility as to what counts as "political" here catches me by surprise. My bad. ~Boar

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    Had my first shot of Moderna last Friday. As a teacher, even down here at the ass end of the highway in Texas, once the HHS added us to the priority list there was only a 12 hour wait time between my signing up online & getting my vaccination appointment via text message. The Biden...

    Guidance on a few bourbons

    As far as #3 goes, for reasonably priced bourbons I'm fond of Woodford Reserve, Elijah Craig & 1792 Ridgemont Reserve. I liked Buffalo Trace when we could get it here but I haven't seen it on local shelves for quite some time. Weller & Old Forrester are at the bottom range "how cheap is still...

Bourbon: Woodford Reserve & Elijah Craig. I add Blanton's, Walking Stick, WR Double Oaked & George...

    What's on your plate today?

    I more or less followed this one: Butter Chicken I tend to be a little "that looks about right" when it comes to measuring things, and I used all ghee, no olive oil & left out the fenugreek leaves because WTF? 😂 Also used Half & Half instead of heavy cream. Thinking next time around I will...

    Sacrilege! 😂 It's GOT to be Welch's Concord Grape JELLY or it's not a real PB & J! ~Boar

    Quick and Easy Recipes

    If you dial back just a bit on the peanut butter amount & replace the oyster sauce with lime juice (as a substitute for lemongrass) you've got a classic Thai curry. I stumbled across nearly the same combo of ingredients you've got there years back trying to make Thai coconut-peanut soup at home...

    Quick and Easy Recipes

    I have a lot of "what's in the fridge?" pasta meals & stir fries that I can throw together deliciously & quickly (frozen cheese tortellini is da bomb!) but my most frequent meal is salmon & asparagus, done all sorts of different ways but always just a simple prep & 20 minutes in the oven...

    Today's Smoke 2021

    Fuente Don Carlos #2. My regular site had tenners on sale, and I realized it had been YEARS since I'd last smoked one. Just as good & satisfying a smoke as I remember. ~Boar

    What coffee did you drink today?

    Just an update .... the Ruta Maya espresso roast was very good, but it wasn't quite "it." The iced coffees, while tasty, were not the same as the ones I'd had in pho joints. So. I bought a can of Cafe du Monde dark roast with chicory. THAT'S the one. Absolutely purist perfect. ~Boar
