Ah, the first McRib of the season.

Had to scarf it down on the way to the supermarket; hence, no photo. But it was everything that I remembered it to be, and more. ‘More’ being the BBQ sauce, which threatened to dye my beard.

Worth it? Absolutely worth it. At my age I probably shouldn’t eat one every day, though. And alas.

Gluten-free Chocolate Cake/Instagram posting test (hey I have a Patreon!).

This is kind of a test. …Which works! It’s also a gluten-free fudge chocolate cake. Which is something that I made today for my wife. Although it turns out that my kids have likewise decided that, actually yes, chocolate cake with fudge icing (not seen here) is nice, too. And, hey: it was.

Tweet of the Day, I Was Interested Up Until The Unitasker edition.

I don’t have a pineapple corer. Which is almost a shame. There’s something about these that’s legit spooky.

I salute you, sir. Some roads, I won’t walk down. But this guy walked a dark path, indeed, and for all of us.

BEHOLD! Plum-Strawberry Amaretto Crisp!

Started with the recipe found here, added fresh strawberries, added a good bit of amaretto. The crumble needed to be mixed just a bit more before adding the egg, but it all worked out in the end. I ate it with whipped cream; my wife just added milk.

Good call on adding booze to this, folks; the amaretto added a nice flavor to the final batch.

I gotta cook up some plums tomorrow.

They are starting to get to the point where it’s use ’em or lose ’em (my wife likes plums, but these are pretty ripe). I saw this recipe: Plum Crisp, which seems simple. Possibly too simple. Any thoughts on, hah, tarting* this up?

*Although actual tarts may be beyond my reach. I don’t think I’ve actually ever made any.

Need some feedback on this chicken pot pie I’m putting together.

Got my chicken, got some carrots to steam up and slice up, got some cooked corn that we sliced off of the cob and stuck in the freezer for just this situation, and I got some white butter sauce that will reconstitute itself just fine with a little chicken broth or stock. And a pie crust to cook it all up in. Question is: do I go through the trouble of steaming up those red potatoes to add to the pie, or do I pull a can of beans out of the larder? I got garbonzo, black beans, red kidney beans (my wife likes bean dishes), and they’d be easier to prepare than the potatoes, but the potatoes gotta get eaten at some point.

Happy π Day!

Sure, π Day is one of those weird little holidays that you only get on the Internet now that the Internet is a thing, but still. A lot of people like to make puns about pies today. I like pies.

Heck, I have a pie crust left over. Suggestions? Bear in mind that if it’s a sweet pie, I’ll have to eat it all by myself. Which is more of a problem than it was twenty years ago, when I had a metabolism with more than one setting.

Fat Tuesday!

My wife asked me, in that particular way that wives have, if I had an idea what I was making for dinner. Being no fool, I say “What did you have in mind?” She said, “Pancakes.”
