Got some pork shoulder to make some Italian sausage, cut off a nice slab of pork to do up tonight, soaking it in a mix of spices, herbs, and red wine vinegar right now before doing a sweet and spicy dry rub and throwing it in the oven

Fried chicken, baked potato with sour cream and chives, and either steamed broccoli or edamame - haven't decided yet.

We were called to "grandparent duty" today taking care of our little Cheyenne at her house because she's sick (bad cold) and we're whooped big time, but in a good way.
I forgot how hard it is to teach a smiling sweet 15mo old baby how to "blow". What a wonderful day.

For dinner, we're having a bottle of wine, and whatever is in the refrigerator.

Hmm, wine seems to be a recurring theme here. Maybe I should join in...

Himself and I were running errands on a nice, sunny day. On the way home I was going over options I could do at home. Sainted Husband said "or we could stop at Foley's for fish". Oh, YUM! Foley and Son Fish and Chips is in Worcester, and is open only Fridays from something like 11 AM to 8 PM. Got a fish dinner (batter-fried cod, fries, coleslaw) and a pint of scallops. I had forgotten how delicious their seafood is. Next time we'll plan a run so I can make a goodly amount of coleslaw and my own dinner fries; all we'll get is their fish and scallops. Or clams. Or maybe shrimp...

BBQ pork ribs. After 5 hours on the Q. Perfect bite, seasoning & heat.

Looks great, Joey. The mountain of snow has melted off my Weber. Maybe I can think about smoking again.

Aww, I hope little Cheyenne feels better soon, Kay. I'm sure your son and DIL feel very fortunate that they can call on grandma when they need to. Enjoy your wine and wind down time!

We had a nice night out, and enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant called "Borough."

The food itself was great, but what I found striking is some of their plating. I've eaten at a lot of nice restaurants, but these guys had some of the best looking "food as art" presentations I've seen anywhere.

Beef tartare with black truffle and parmesan purees


Venison, butternut squash, Stilton cream (maitake mushrooms on the side, but not in photo)


Brussels Sprouts and Lamb Sweetbreads
