  1. Fireworks shots are gorgeous! (Food doesn't look half bad, either...)
  2. Here are a couple of collections of salad dressings you might peruse. Click -- you have to answer a two-question survey before it lets you see it, but no signing up or anything. Also lots of dressings here.
  3. I had been keeping an eye out for pork shoulder roasts, as Kroger generally puts them on sale during the summer and I grab a couple for the freezer. Hasn’t happened yet this year. Saturday on my way home, on a whim, I stopped at a supermarket where I rarely shop just to see…they had them for $1.25 a pound! (Kroger, by contrast was $2.99 a pound.) Packaged two to a package…walked out with 17-odd pounds of pork shoulder for $22. Took them home to repackage separately, and they were too big for my biggest vacuum bags. So I rummaged and found some two-gallon bags that barely held them, and stowed them in the freezer. Some hours later it occurred to me I should have cut them in half; I would have still had four-pound roasts, which are plenty big for us. Oh, well. I’ll save them until I need to serve a throng.
  4. All of which sent me into a frenzy trying to recall the context of snippet of a song…”I’ve been drinking malted milk…trying to get (keep?) my courage up…” 1920’s bluesman Robert Johnson, “Malted Milk,” covered by Eric Clapton on “Me and Mr. Johnson.” Thank God for Google.
  5. I could have sworn someone started a topic for this, but I couldn't find it, so... Celebrating Independence Day early today, as the kids have other plans Monday. Pork steaks are in the sous vide, liberally sprinkled with BBQ rub. I'll be making potato salad, slaw and baked beans and cooking some fresh corn. Blackberries cooked for cobbler. I'll throw the steaks on the grill to sear after while, and grill a couple of tenderloins for good measure. What's y'all's plans?
  6. Department stores in Memphis were Goldsmiths and Lowensteins. In Nashville it was Cain Sloan and Castner Knott. As an impoverished college student preparing for my first job in journalism, I bought myself a small wardrobe from Goldsmith’s bargain basement, and celebrated with lunch in the Tea Room — pimiento cheese on wheat, cut in triangles, crusts removed, and carrots, celery and cucumbers with tomato aspic. Quite elegant!

    Dinner 2022

    Forgot to take photos last night, but it was a veggie dinner — corn, crowder peas, okra, zucchini fritters, cucumbers in sour cream sauce. All either from my garden or the farmer’s market.

    Summer veggie medley, with merguez sausage cooked with new potatoes. Corn, tomatoes and okra from the Farmers Market. Squash from my garden.
  9. I learned about this process from an online acquaintance. Been doing it ever since.

    I hadn’t thought about it, but I guess I eat roughly equal amounts of beef and pork; maybe marginally more pork. Chicken and seafood somewhat less.

    Breakfast 2022

    I’ll bet something out of Vivian Howard’s book would do the trick.

    Bless him. And what a joy…a kid with a curious palate!
