Tasty & Torrential Tuesday

And that’s a good thing. It’s only rain and with temps in the mid-40s, it’s helping melt the still-huge snow banks hereabouts.

I don’t care, being home and dry with a hot coffee, Little Jimmy Scott CD playing, and all the ingredients for preparing a dish from a new cookbook given to me at Christmas, titled “Just One Pot.” So I’m good for the entire day. I decided to scrap the Etouffe recipe originally planned when I found this one. It’s a pork and vegetable stew and it sounds delicious. And the pork was on sale.

I successfully suppressed the urge to do a little bar-hopping around Happy Hour this afternoon. Well, it really was decided for me when I opened my wallet and heard an echo from deep inside. Hmm! That urge will have to wait until I've paid what I owe to the state and IRS. The bestids!


These photos were shot yesterday and should give you an idea of what the area looks like.  The top shot is my snow and ice covered steps and porch taken as I left for work. The bottom is Rehoboth Avenue, taken of the restaurant (center) from the post office parking space. Again, before work. (Click to embiggen.) There you have it.


Time for a bit of lunch then to get cooking.

More later.

  1. Wow!! I can't tell you the last time I listened to Jimmy Scott. His music makes me want to lounge away the evening in the bar at The Fairmont in New Orleans.

  2. I get your drift. He's just perfect for this kind of day. I lost other discs in the settlement 3 years ago, but his Mood Indigo CD is a treasure. A great selection of classics as only he can sing them.

    Thanks for stopping by and for the comment.

  3. My wife informs me a no'easter is coming this weekend. Stay safe if it is headed your way.
