Hello!

Sam's True Blood recap will be up later today - they had wicked storms (be sure to say that in a proper Bostonian accent) last night, people are without power, there was flooding, etc. So. Patience, Grasshopper. Soon you will be able to snatch that recap from my hand.

I threw my back out yesterday after finishing up the granite project (which, btw, thank you for the support there. And "decomposed" is a term meaning "rock companies pulverized the hell out of" for the record. :D) I couldn't move yesterday, and I felt old and decrepit. *sad face*

I had a pool party on Saturday and we made the most AMAZING brisket tacos. I don't know what seasoning the Mr. used on the brisket (probably our standby of Tony's, black pepper, garlic powder, smoked for 20 hours over hickory OH MY GOODNESS) but I know that the pickled red onion I made, along with a few strips of roasted poblano peppers and a thick stripe of chipotle BBQ sauce, all wrapped up in a fresh flour tortilla, was enough to bring angels down from heaven. GOOD LORD. Tasty. Also, holy crow, I need some lunch.

The Dr. Who rewatch (starting with the Ninth Doctor) is continuing tomorrow, and they've been a lot of fun. Be sure to check back every Tuesday - Wednesday -Thursday for the latest installments.

I am making these Nutella lava cookies later today, and then the kids and I (the Mr. is back traveling) are going to make some chicken "gyros" for dinner, and oh my goodness, do I love homemade tzatziki.

I REALLY NEED SOME LUNCH. Feeding brain = ability to think = ability to actually write. =/

HOW DO YOU BRAIN. I am slow and dim witted right now, yeesh.

OMG that Nutella cookie recipe looks fabulous. I may have to try it (on a day that I'm not dieting).

I am so grateful I have a hungry 16 year old boy in my house that will keep me from eating them all in one go.

Good lord those tacos sound delish. I never smoke brisket because of the time factor, but the way you describe it makes me want to do it. Pickled onions are a great condiment. I have some on hand that I made to serve with achiote pork barbecued in banana leaves. Yum!

Sorry about your back. The mister and I spent yesterday chopping up a felled tree for our big brush pick up, so I'm all scratched up and muscle achey and feeling stupid for waiting until it was over a hundred to start. Fortunately neither of us got heat stroke or threw anything out. Not for lack of trying. Yes, we're idiots.

Bookmarked the Nutella lava cookies. I say Yum again. You're making me hungry and I just had lunch.

Ooooh, do I love a smoked brisket. And I love pickled red onions on pork, too. I JUST LOVE TACOS.

Oh my goodness, chopping is hard enough work as it is, let alone in the heat we've been having. 109 this week! WHAT.

I clearly didn't have enough lunch, myself, because I'm ready for Round 2. (But there was no brisket left, woe!)

Can you rent out your 16 year old son to help the rest of us not eat all the cookies. Mines only 3 months. That could be very valuable. Here bottomless male teenager, eat these things!

Those look amazing

I have simpatico back-throwing-out! Except mine happened for absolutely no reason (an old injury, and I throw it out randomly every year or so). It freaking sucks when you feel like you'll never move or stand up all the way again, doesn't it? I hope yours is getting better quickly!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
