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.
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.
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...
Currently my bar shelf is tailored to just me & features mostly "handles." 🤣
Vodka: Reyka. Great mixer; good enough for martinis
Tequila: Not at the moment. I like Milagro though.
Bourbon: Woodford Reserve & Elijah Craig. I add Blanton's, Walking Stick, WR Double Oaked & George...
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...
Everybody's going to have their own taste. Shows I've really enjoyed there:
The Umbrella Academy
I Am Not Okay With This
Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 & The...
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...
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...
Oh no. 😢
Cattle die, kinsmen die
We ourselves die too
One thing I know that doesn't die
The good name we leave behind.
Fare forth brightly, Hank "Devil Doc" Proia. May your ancestors welcome you with joy into their bright company.
We're sure gonna miss you here.
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.
I bought a can of Cafe du Monde dark roast with chicory.
THAT'S the one. Absolutely purist perfect.
