Every Labor Day weekend my family gets together to celebrate family. And the open of dove hunting season. And pretty much anything else that comes to mind. One of the highlights of our get together is a BBQ at my aunt and uncle's house. It's a meatlover's paradise with slow-cooked pork ribs and steaks on the grill. Continue reading

Was that necessary Tony? Really? Poor Paula. Good natured good old gal. In the latest celebrity food fight, Anthony Bourdain slings his peas and carrots at Paula Deen, the self-proclaimed butter queen. No one is going to mistake Paula for a culinary master. She's cooking good old girl food for a nation that - well - likes butter as much as she does. Not that this is a good thing. Continue reading

My trip to Nepal was just before the rainy season, so we had some rain, but not torrents. Mornings were sunny and our day started early as the sun rose about 5 am. Since we were still on US of A time, it was like getting up from a really long afternoon nap. I had cloudy head - a lot. Days seemed super long to me, but I think that was because everything slowed down immensely. The best part of everything being enormously slow was that I was well rested in spite of myself. Even though we were visiting family, going out shopping and to do a little sightseeing, I still had hours and hours to relax, read, and sleep. Continue reading
