I worked as a chef this past Friday. Last summer, for a charity auction, I offered up my outdoor cooking abilities with Dutch-ovens. A director of a local agency won the bid and had me to cook for her staff. So Friday, I hauled my stuff out to their office and prepared lunch: barbecued babyback ribs, baked chicken, Dutch-oven potatoes, Carolina-style Cole slaw, and a chocolate-cherry cobbler. The photo is of me showing off my potatoes to a hungry worker.
Things have been rather crazy in my world over the past few weeks. It’s often that way in September and this year has been no different. We’re having some crazy weather here! Yesterday morning, when I went out with the dog it was 40 degrees, today it was 70! After a wet spring and early summer, the skies dried up, but this morning we received a welcome drizzle. I’m glad we’re not getting the deluge some of you received down South. We’re here in a race to get a project roofed before winter sets in and need to have good weather this fall.
I just haven’t had time to research or write about the political issues of today, but last week I came across this video at Courting Destiny's blog. It's about the current health care debate in our country enlightening and funny. It’s amazing that we pay so much for so little. If that video gets your blood pressure up too much, watch this one. It's not political at all and is kind of funny, unless you're a cop without a sense of humor.
Hopefully, soon, I’ll be able to write more of my Appalachian Trail hike. I also have an upcoming canoe trip planned for a river that I’ve not yet paddled, one in which I’m hoping to catch some fall colors along with the fall salmon run.
