    Any olive trees in your area? ‘‘Tis the season to pick if you do. We usually put up 10 gallons a year. Mine are green though. If you want them black, you just let air hit them during the curing process. Black olives aren’t a variety.

    The kids I talk to say paint chips were the best part of the Michelle Obama school lunch.

    It is almost noon and I have not eaten yet so I need to come up with something before I faint from hunger and ketosis.

    I think I'll make more potato pancakes. These are always really good when you have time to make them.

    They serve as a breakfast, lunch or dinner side dish -- carbs -- but they also have beaten eggs in them -- protein.

    Last night at the pub poker game I played into a bigger flush and lost all my chips.

    My flush was 10-high. The winner/opponent's was Jack-high.

    We were both all-in (which now reminds me of Paula Broadwell) and a 3rd guy was all-in too with 2 pairs.

    Went home after that and took my long haired Maine coon cat for a walk. He always loves going on walks with The Human.

    My mom and dad were WW2 era folks and they loved Spam fried in Crisco.

    But when they tried to feed it to us kids we almost threw up.

    Bacon-wrapped anything tastes pretty good.

    I like bacon-wrapped scallops.

    When I roast a turkey, duck, or goose, I never stuff it at all.

    I prefer it to cook thoroughly and faster, so I leave the interior cavity empty.

    Yup I agree.

    For farm-raised they feed them fish meal. That way the catfish don't taste like dirt.

    Same issue with tilapia.

    Ever since all my Italian friends told me to avoid Olive Garden I have not gone back there.

    Instead I search out real Italian family restaurants with Google.

    I only went for those olives. I got the salad. It came with a handful of olives. I don't think I've been in one for twenty years. I heard they don't have those olives anymore, but don't know.

    Stuffing a big bird is asking for food poisoning. Stuffing is better baked separately.
    Add a cup of pan drippings - tastes better than steamed blood.

    I could not find a way to make it taste good. Perhaps if I had fasted for a week - or two ...

    Mom always cooked dressing around the bird and another huge pan of dressing on the side. Her dressing and giblet gravy were legendary.

    Thanksgiving dinner at my house will come in a box from a local homecookery,

    Around the bird could work, but you would lose a lot of the drippings.
