We used the soaking liquid along with chicken stock for liquid.

Oooh. Reminds me of family vacations on Marco Island.

Leftover chili here.

We're having take-out pizza from the grocery store that's kinda by our house.
It's not bad and better yet, it's only $7 for a 16" pie!

Pirate keeps asking me to buy some pork belly. Can someone tell me what it is and what do you do with it? I see it in the meat department, but it looks like a hunk of just fat to me. Only recently have I become aware of it even existing. I need an education.
