Wow, whoa, whoa… SCRAMBLED eggs? Are you at summer camp?

I know, I know, but I’m feeding a 3 year old here.

There’s really no excuse why I haven’t tried that yet

How porky are those sausages? Do you think the meal will be too acidic/briney? I love briney flavors, so maybe not. Instead of pickled beets, roasted beets with bacon?

That’s a good point.  I haven’t tried the sausages, but I’m thinking they might be a little bland (potatoes).  I’m roasting them instead of boiling them to add a little flavor and color.  I think maybe the lingonberry jam will offset the pickled stuff?  Plus I already have pickled beets in the basement.  Also, beer.

But WHAT about the onions?

I juiced one quarter of a raw onion, unfrozen, because I’m a MAN, dammit.

It worked out fine.  I just made sure to do it first, and on a relatively low speed.

nebraskagasm replied to your video: THE BEST

Sometimes you have to stop and realize that this dude that you think is pretty cool, but you’ve never really met, puts up a video of a Cosby show. You love the Cosby show. We live in a magic age.

It really is criminal that we haven’t met, no?

And she brought beer!

Psh, it’s only Schlitz.  That’s basically Milwaukee tap water.

nebraskagasm replied to your post: Doing research about making pulled pork for 70.

For the grad party I did about 30 lbs and went through all. I bet we had about 125-150 come through. I did had other food, though the pork when the quickest. I would figure around .5 lb per person.

That’s what I was thinking.

Figuring on a half pound per person, and a cooked yield of about 50%, that means we need about 70 pounds of pork butt, or roughly 9 average sized butts, which seems like an ass-load (do NOT pardon the pun).

It is SO funny that I feel the complete opposite.

I mean, to each his own.  I don’t begrudge you that.

I understand why the NBA can’t play college-style ball ($$$$$$$$), and I rarely watch the NBA so I admittedly have a pretty small sample size, but I was at the bar for a beer or two and the Heat/Mavericks games was and it was UGLY.

Google Reader…. 1?!?

I keep up with it all day.  First thing in the morning is really the only time there are a lot of unread items.

nebraskagasm replied to your post: So far this morning

I have a mental picture of a pile of leaves 7 or so feet hight and an immaculately clean lawn.
No way, I’m not nearly that anal.  I rake just for appearances in the neighborhood.  If it were up to me, half that shit would just stay where it is.

homesicktexan.blogspot…. Great base recipe, add other forms of pork as you see fit. Also, one of my favorite food blogs, long time reader.
Thank you!  I actually recall Bittman’s recipe from which this was adapted, but I dig the changes.
