We lived in SF for two years in the early 70's.

My avatar is by 1960's SF undergrond comic artist, Robert Crumb. He wrote ahem, adult comic books; subjects mostly were ( pardon again, ahem) sex drugs rock and roll and hippie individuality as expressed by alternative lifestyle conformity ofthe time. Mr Natural as a comic character was most often nekkid. His long beard made him seem quite chaste. Well, mostly. This might be close to Mr Natural's last hurrah. Looking for a new avatar for 2013. I watched an R Crumb biography recently. He is unfortunately way more misogynist that I find intolerable. I do like he is an avid collector of 1920's -30's jazz. That part is very much my style.

So that's it in a nut shell.
And here I thought you were just an old SF hippie Whisk!

The Keep on Truckin' guy is indeed by R Crumb.

Hippies, do they still make them anymore?

I managed some chicken tenders that I will cut into chunks and bake till done and then toss into some buffalo sauce and bake a little more to set. No breading and as little butter as I can get away with. I have salad with ranch and lots of fruit munchies. No starchy carbs today, had pancakes for breakfast.

I'm going to attempt to make a shrimp and sausage gumbo using an Alton Brown recipe that has you making the roux in the oven. I have not been successful in roux'ing in the past. I'm hoping this will work nicely. My one glitch is that I cannot find head -on shrimp. I was hoping to use the heads for the stock. I think a combo of chicken stock and clam juice may work to get something close to the missing shrimp stock.
Get easy-peel raw shrimp. Use the shells and legs to make you shrimp broth. It really makes a flavorful broth. Just add a little salt, and a touch of Old Bay seasoning.

DW- detests football. I like it, but am not an avid TV sports guy (except for the Stanley Cup Playoffs). But I have my spicy tomato aspic, crackers, pepperoni, salami, cheeses, and home made venison pastrami to keep me nibblin' today. And it all tastes sooooo good.

This should get me into the second quarter (maybe), where the second course will be a little chili.
