Sausage for Radio

Dinner in Columbus with Family, Novak and CMH Gourmand

Last week my friend Jim came over and we made some sausage. He recorded it and made a podcast out of it. Now you can hear the gentle sounds of sausage being stuffed and you can count how many times I say "You know," in STEREO!

Pizza Margherita

Pizza in the summer time. This is the time of year when there are so many things to do other than pasting pictures on the internet. Earlier this week, Andrew at Slim Pickins' Pork, posted a picture of a pizza and well, I just couldn't help myself. Tomatoes are starting to come in here in the Chicagoland area and I picked up a few today at the Flossmoor Farmer's Market. I used three of them, peeled, seeded, and chopped, and cooked them down in a skillet with some chopped garlic and some olive oil: Hey Presto, Pizza Sauce. Four ounces of diced fresh mozzerella and into the 500F oven. As soon as it comes out cover with chopped basil.

Crust, Pizza Margherita

My ten year old pizza stone from Target is in three pieces (has been for years) but it still works.

What's that? Kids wanna have a slumber party? Better make some ice cream sandwiches.

Remember when then most exciting part of Friday night was watching Miami Vice? It's gotten a lot better.
