Andy, I hope you have some silver bullets to bite on. Have you been throwing too many fast balls? Really, it's not a fun surgery but I bet you'll do great after a few days. I'm sure wishing you well.

I have a beer butt chicken in the oven. I got the idea to take the fat globs that hang from opening of the chicken (butt) and place them under the skin of the breasts. It sounds like an obscene joke somehow, but I bet it helps with the moisture of the breasts. I must be a chicken boob maker.

Don't know the sides yet.

Just in case I haven't written it yet, best wishes and good luck with the surgery Andy.

I tried out two new-to-me Indian dishes. Southern Indian Lamb Curry Recipe and Makai Na Bharta. I have learned that I don't much care for the taste of curry leaves. It might be okay with less (there were 5 in a dish for 2). The lamb dish was pretty good to start with, but got worse and worse with every bite. Danged curry leaf flavour. The vegetable dish was quite good. It wasn't nearly as hot as I expected with 3 tiny, hot chilis, 1/2 tsp chili powder, and 1/4 tsp garam masala (I made half the recipe). Of course, I left off the cilantro garnish. Had that with brown basmati rice and Mommesin's Cuvée Saint Pierre white wine.

There will be strawberry mousse for dessert. I still have to garnish it.

Nope, garam masala was on the list.

It's in the Makai Na Bharta, not in the lamb dish.

Sliced and sautéd some chicken artichoke and mozzarella sausages with some onion, garlic and roasted red pepper added some 1/2 & 1/2, a big glob of sour cream and some Parmesan cheese. I don't Have a name for it, but it was yummy!

Andy...... Best wishes for a speedy recovery from your surgery! We will be thinking about you.

Gonna be P.B.&J., but, I am going to do them in the pan, a la grilled cheese.

P.S. This post surgical, at home insomnia BS is for the birds. .. that I may be up to hear in a few hours. . .just not trying to take ANY more pills than they already give me, and the night I DID take 'em, holy cow was I out of it for the better part of the next morning. . .
