Oops, I Did it Again! Somehow I accidentally slow-roasted another pork shoulder, this time an Italian version (think fennel seeds, tons of garlic, oregano, and thyme). Same technique as carnitas, same silky, porky result. Rarrrr, LOVE it. Nice to have sitting in the fridge over the weekend, ready to eat as is, or toss with a bit of rigatoni, or enjoy alongside creamy polentaaaaah, or stuff into a warm, soft roll, with thinly sliced onions and pickles, for a killer sandwich. None of those options suck and I’m glad to have them all. Yeah.
I met Susie Silpada Sales for a last-minute Friday Morning Coffee with Suz today (both Kim and I were busy on Tuesday, so Tuesday Morning Coffee with Kim & Suz had to wait for next week, boo). So fun! So necessary! Nothing like the elixir of girly chat (and Almond Joy candy bars – Suz brought Almond Joy candy bars! My very, very favorite, yay!) to wrap up a craaaaz-ow week. What to tell first? About Nathan’s new school? Driving through a hailstorm? Eating delicious, strange animal parts, barefoot, in front of a television crew? Cooper’s vomiting all over Stacey’s car? My parents’ new home? My accidental flashing of the Metal sign at a religious event?
And then, what to listen to first? About Suz’s impending move? Her kids’ new schools? Her new Susie Sales job? Her new kickass fur vest and totally Metal boots? It was too much, there’s just too much going on. Life is wild right now, in a good way, guess we’ll just have to get together again (hee, hee) – like on Monday to celebrate The Maven’s 40th! Yes, that nauseatingly young beyotch is about to join the ranks of us cougars. Hope she can handle it… I’m cooking and haven’t quite decided yet what I’m making. Stay tuned…
