This Week's Recipe: What's new in Season!


  • Monday: Chicken dumplings and random vegetables soup
    Ever since last week, my stomach has been a rumble in cautious temptation of a suggestion from the wifeybird. Chicken broth made from chicken feet. Supposedly this is one of the soup makers best kept secrets. I figure a mix of dumpling and some old vegetables we could give new life would make a nice monday meal.

  • Tuesday: Asparagus + roast + Moroccan spices
    A timeless country pairing. We noticed some round of eye roasts on sale at HEB. Hopefully we can find some more intriguing meats to dress up.

  • Wednesday: Stuffed artichoke + fruit
    At last! Artichokes are in season. I've been dieing to try a stuffed artichoke recipe again. Ever since I worked at my last company and was treated to the fine artichoke cookings of wonderful Mew Orleans Italian woman, a certain hole in my appetite has always existed. Her artichokes were just so damn good! I look forward to how this turns out.

  • Thursday: Green beans w/walnuts + scallops w/ red peppers
    A meal made of quickly becoming classic entries at our homestead. The two tastes have no doubt of their nomlyness.

This Week's Recipe: The week of Duck Fat!


  1. Asparagus stirfried in duck fat + hamhocks +beans

    I've been dieing to try out this duck fat on something every since I heard the buzz about it from a New York Restaraunt "Duck Fat Fries" (an entire restaurant dedicated to the nomly art!). Figure might be worth it to try it on something small and vegetable to balance out the fat flavor. Aspargus are also in desperate need of eatings!

  2. Green beans + duckfat + walnuts + pork chops (coated in Lottie's mustard sauce)

    A classic dish by my wife. My walnut addiction goes back to one of my great uncles on my father's side who used to love them. I shall carry on the legacy with a pork pairing this week and a very special sauce I recommend you all try. I got hooked on Lottie's mustard sauce after visiting a local Firehouse Subs. I can't wait to see how the strong burn mustardy flavor turns out on a nice meaty p-chop!

  3. Collard greens + fajitas + red peppers

    Two of my favorite dishes. Julie has collard greens down perfectly these days and i've been dieing for some red pepper fajitas.

  4. Duck fat fries + cilantro aioli + and hamburgers on kaiser roll

    Definitely not a "quickfix" meal, but certainly the type of meal that can put to justice the duckfat we are trying out this week!Damnit, just realized from the recipe that this requires more duckfat than we have :/ grar, oh well, trying out the cilantro aioli will be a fun experiment and who doesn't love a good kaiser roll.


A Story Must Be Told!

Its been several year's since I wrote to this blog. Wow! How did I ever forget how good an idea this was. While working overtime tonight at work I started pondering on an age old question of "What makes life worthwhile." Its an question with a different answer for every person in the world. My current thoughts on this are "Life is meant to share creativity and tell the story of my experience in humanity!" Thus, I must write, damnit.

*points to self*

You!

"Meeting" Is a 4 Letter Word

I remember reading once, that if the end of the world could be described in one word, it would be "meetings". Today at work has been a continuing nightmare in a saga that began since Wednesday morning, yesterday. I won't go into details, but just say, after two days, a simple concern in the GUI of the project I'm on has resulted in almost a day (8 hours) worth of meetings, mass emotional draining, and the end result of one person quitting our company. I can't understand why people would let a simple problem become so heated. We aren't ending world hunger here people! We are making a simple Windows application. Sadly, all our efforts were in vain, and we ended our debacle with the same problem that was understood from the beginning.

Celeste, you will be missed.

The Book of Cataclysm

Clever words from Syndicate Wars...


# To take one life is sin. To take a thousand is religion.

# The courageous enter dark caves alone. The clever send in the courageous first. The cleverest wait behind the clever.

# The apprentices asked the Master. "When shall we achieve immortality?" And the Master answered, "Not in this life."

# Bravery will take you into the most dangerous of places. Overwhelming firepower will see you safely through them.

# The brave hide behind technology. The stupid hide from it. But the clever have technology, and hide it.

# A war refugee sought the Master. He said, "You are wise and serene. Teach me to escape the horrors of this world." And the Master blinded him with fire-irons.

# Follow the more successful thief and steal his ideas.

# "Here!" said the Master. "Build me a great tomb in this place." His apprentices did. It glittered in the sun. "Now go inside," said he. They entered. An earthquake then destroyed the tomb, burying those within. The Master smiled. "Even the faithful are not always chosen. "This is called sacrifice."

# Even the salamander sometimes burns.

# Remember, the meek shall inherit nothing.

# The people stood like corn in the high fields and listened to the Master. As the reaper's blade scythed them all, the Master fell silent. The lesson would be learned by others.

# He who lives in the eye of the storm is a mote in the eye of an angry god.

# In the darkest times, the true believer hones his combat skills.

# The world shall turn and the human race shall pass. Everything begins anew. The faith has run its course and it is over.

# Mark thine enemy, for all that separates the damned from the chosen is a dot of monochrome light, projected onto the back of a neck.

# All knowledge is stored somewhere. Be it in books, heads or deep under glaciers. And when we find it, we make it ours. Faith is bricks; knowledge is mortar.

# He who shouts loudest can only hear his own voice. Those with true knowledge listen to those with true faith. And those with closed ears never hear the swing of the reaper's blade.

# Poor workers blame their tools. Good workers build better tools. The best workers get their tools to do the work for them.

#There is pleasure in stealing the souls of machines.

# Not only will all eyes be on the leaders of men, but all combat sights as well.

# The Master has no need for money. But still he sits and counts it. As a meditation.

# A hundred elephants can wreck the outer walls of a fortress. One diseased rat can kill all those inside.

# The non-believers climbed for days to confront the master in the mountains. "Where do you get your so-called faith?" they asked. "You brought it," the master replied. "You've all climbed so high."

# The Master told his pupils, "Forget being taught and concentrate on learning. When you're sure, question everything."

# Faithful minds are not enough. Deliver unto us brains also.

Daedius

I've come to the realization that the only true end government of an enlightened society is Anarchy.

Daedius

it all comes down to suffering.... suffering of own people in our culture of desire.. and suffering of other people from nations we exploit.... as americans..we do extremely well at being profitable with our ideas and continue to make them profitable.. but one must question... "even if something is legal? encouraged? and will make you rich? ... is it still right to do?"... I see flaws with how we develop and market the minds of people to a state of near mind control from birth to want to buy things.. and work themselves into debt.. while blinding them from alternatives.... I see flaws in how we feel that we can entice other countries to create inhumane work conditions for millions just so we can have a cheap cup of coffee, a cheap tank of gas, or a latest fashion. Greed is essential to what america is.. and its binding ropes extend into all directions.
