In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

I Really Don't Care

About what? Whether it's the correct time of year to make gumbo.

"It's too hot for gumbo!" is a response I've heard. Following that line of reasoning, nothing should be cooked during hot months. Everything has to be raw or eaten frozen. Hot meals are enjoyed year round and I still haven't determined why gumbo is considered a cold weather food.

I've been told the same thing for chili, which doesn't make sense, because the summer baseball food of hot dogs are commonly covered in the stuff. I like chili in the summer as much as I do in the winter. It tastes good, is relatively inexpensive and easy to make.

So, whether you dislike the idea, or not, I made chicken and sausage gumbo today. For those that think it's a bad idea, it doesn't bother me you feel that way. I have more for me and it's really, really good.

  1. Good on ya', brutha. I'm making one of the versions of my Killer Meatloaf™ as I type this. Nobody should be able to decide and tell you what time of year is Teh Right Time™ to make a certain food. Hell, if I want to have ice cream during a blizzard, I'm going to have ice cream during a blizzard. :-)

    1. Some people get outright upset about such things. That's okay; I won't offer them a bowl.

    1. That's the best plan. If AC isn't available, chase it with iced tea.

    1. Exactly. Alcoholic beverages add to the experience.
