Horses were changed in mid-stream.  Cows actually.  I was about to grill a beautiful thick ribeye when I realized I had older steak to make use of.  Shown here with pathologically humongous potato and thirty second green beans.  Steak and potato could not be finished.  Unlike every last green bean in the pot.

I would have your dinner any time. But why does that baked potato look like a test subject from new Romulan disruptor prototype field trial ?

My potatoes look that way because I smash them.  Some more artistically than others.

My dog LOVES baby cukes especially Kirby’s. When I want to eat one in any way I have to sneak around her.

 Better than anticipated.  That was a very old cigar maybe 15 + yrs old from my early days of smoking cigars.   These days mostly all  habanos that I wish were that old

I recall La Gloria had quality problems about 10 years ago...loose packing...which is why I switched to Punch.

Pottery. Bought in a 100Yen store in Chiba some years ago, because I wanted to drink a bottle of convenience store sake in style in front of the train station ...

Roasted chicken with pan fried baby zucchini.  Zucchini were so small that they only needed to be cooked on one side.

@robirdstx what are Crash Hot Potatoes please?

 

 

https://www.chicagotribune.com/dining/sns-201811051234--tms--foodstylts--v-b20181105-20181105-story.html

 

“Crash hot potatoes are Australia's answer to smashed potatoes, which are essentially small potatoes that are crushed to maximize their surface area and baked until crisp. I first encountered crash hot potatoes on Ree Drummond's website. Also known as The Pioneer Woman, Drummond credits Australian food writer and cookbook author Jill Dupleix with the inception of this preparation.”
