Long-time followers of the Underground know how much I enjoy a good pepper jelly. The stuff is quite easy to make too. With the garden right on peak production of chiles and farmers markets everywhere overloaded with many inexpensive choices (if you don’t grow […]

Comment Spam Fixed; CU Open to New Comments! Watchdogs Sent to New Homes…

Okay, maybe this time the Elves have gotten things under control. (I found a way to get the job done quickly. Just take away their beer and pretzels, and cut the cord on the TV. Then promise to bring it all back when the problem’s solved.) The several watchdogs the Underground has been using […]

Going to China for the Aquatics Championships? Don’t Eat the Pork…

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Cool Down the Italian Way: Grilled Peaches and Red Wine Granita

Davy Crockett once said, “You may all go to Hell, and I will go to Texas.” Trust me, it’s hotter here. We’ve been scorched in Texas for months now. We were 5° F above average for June, after a hot May. The above-average temperatures have continued, and so has the drought. (Rain in isolated […]
