What the hell is he cooking tonight?

OK, I'm retired and The Tiny Little Woman Who Lives At My House And Hands Out Work isn't.

I do most of the cooking, and I try to keep the wimmin folk happy (TTLWWLAMHAHOW, hereafter known as TLW for short, Princess Mel, and Pepper, the Poor Pitiful Parvo Puppy. Lockjaw, I feel for ya.).

Just to pass the time while I wait for things to boil, bake, brown, and baste I thought I'd share what's for dinner everyday. I know, you don't care, but a boy gets bored...

The back story for tonight's meal is this: TLW declared that we need to try the foods of different cultures, so we oughta cook the holiday meals of different cultures. Where she came up with this I haven't a clue. I was won over by the sparkle in her eye, though.

You'd think I'd catch a break. You see, TLW is Japanese American and I've been eating raw fish, strange pickled things, unnamed sea creatures, odd kinds of fungi, and more rice than Uncle Ben ever dreamed of for more than 35 years. Not to mention going to strangely costumed dance recitals and listening to music that sounds like cats being strangled. And chanting, too. I think I've been pretty open to 'other cultures'....

All I can say is she needs to watch out when Oktoberfest rolls around, 'cuz homeboy's cookin' up some gut sausages. And beer. We may even be dancing around a Maypole come Erster Mai.

Tonight's menu is a nice brisket, slow cooked with onions and garlic, kugel, and a hearty pot of matzo ball soup.

Mmmmmmmmmm. Good eats!

Chag Pesach sameach!

There's enough matzo balls for a small army, and that's after cutting the recipe in half. Sheesh.

Maybe I can make hush puppies out of them...

No, they're too wiry. The damn things are hard to kill, too. They have to run the things over with a steam roller to kill them, which is why they come all flattened out like that.

My balls fell apart a little bit from being hung in the soup just a tad too long. Ahem...

It was all pretty good though.


The wiener hound thought she needed more.

Tonight was sausage and peppers for me, meatballs and spaghetti for the wimmin.

I didn't make it; it was from Scardino's. Princess Mel's birthday and her request.

Are your Lac La Biche women lumberjacks?
