Finding Phos

Woof, been gone awhile, my apologies to Troll for not doing Mute Monday - I do enjoy it, just got behind the power curve this weekend and still chasing the end. I suppose it's best if you don't make it to the end - out here Navajo Indians that weave rugs and blankets never complete the piece because the believe if they finish its curtains for them. So maybe it is best we never really finish everything - there'd be nothing left to do and then it would be off to the happy hunting ground. Happy Hunting Ground, now there's a real myth. Whoever came up with that never froze their ass off waiting for a deer to amble along.

But I digress - this is Troll's fault, he got me thinking about Indians AK Native Americans AKA First Americans AKA whatever the current PC title has been bestowed upon them talking about Aztecs in his last comment. Those Aztecs were plain crazy, took some upstanding Catholics to sane them up and wipe them out.

Anyhoo, it was a nice weekend spent with my daughter and her family and I am here to tell you it was a hoot. Got to see he grandpuppy, always a treat.Mostly we ate a lot. My Son-in-law was kind enough to schlep us all over Chandler and took us to Chino Bandido's, a Chinese/Mexican/Jamaican fusion kind of restaurant. At first gasp it doesn't sound like a good mix, but looking at Chinese and Mexican food you can see a lot of parallels. And toss in some jerk spice and now you're talking good food.He also made some most excellent baked Ziti, he is a most excellent baker and cook in his own right.

I was able to smoke three boneless turkey roasts (looks like a turkey football, has white and dark meat all packed into a string bag) for the squadron Thanksgiving party. Must've done something right because the roaster I reheated it in was emptied pretty fast. Speaking of empty, now would be a good time to donate to the local food bank if you are able - many have bare shelves. The way the economy is going and with all the layoffs the food banks are finding a larger than usual crowd coming in for food. Says a lot when a world power has so many who can't afford food on a daily basis. Anyway, help he food banks fill their shelves, and don't forget them after the holidays because they feed people every day. We have to take care of each other...

ya, i donated to the local food bank today. and i will continue to do so. it's always good to share meals and quality time with family.
well, years ago i've read up on the aztecs ..
from that books perspective they had some (for us) bizarre customs and rituals, many quite inhumane if i remember correctly...
and at one time i studied the middle ages quite extensively ..
quite bizarre and inhumane customes were used then too .. by christians ..
but anyway .. today my faith in the power of religion has been restore ..

smoking turkey eh? That'll give you a nice buzz... ;)

I like that you reminded us to donate to the food bank. Sadly thought, people only seem to remember to donate around the 'giving' season... The food bank needs food year round.

Nothing like having three moldy loaves of bread and four dented labelless cans to chose from on a hot July day... Yeah, I speak from experience. Another tale for another blog... :/

Yukon and grandpuppy look cute together. :D
