I don't know why, either. I think I'm having a midlife. Nothing fun is going on and I'm tired of working. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful I have a job, a home, my Poppy, my family and friends. Say, maybe I need a red sports car and a new hairdoo! Whatever.
Anyway, we had our friends R/J-C and K/T (minus the T) for dinner on Saturday. On Le Menu: carnitas. Two days before the dinner, I grabbed a hunk of pork out of the deep freeze. I cooked that piece of pork for over 5 hours. I was expecting the meat to fall right off the bone, but it was like a piece of leather. Come to find out from Porcine-Poppy, I'd used the wrong cut of meat. So, in my mind, I ruined dinner. I think that's part of my mood...I don't do failure very well.
In an effort to avert such a mistake again, I bought:
Knowledge is power!
K brought Ellie-The-Rottweiler over too...I think Jax had an Ellie hangover on Sunday:
She didn't go far from the couch and neither did I.
Open wide and say AWWWW:
Those are lamb tongues. So very good!
