It’s Way Too Cold Here in Texas

How cold is it here? It’s so cold:

Starbucks is serving coffee on a stick.
We’ve taken everything out of the freezer so we’ll have someplace warm to sleep tonight.
Our three cats and Sonia the Red Golden are hitchhiking south for the winter.
The power companies are sending letters of condolence with their bills.
Opticians are giving away […]

Can You Get Swine Flu From Being a Pig at the Thanksgiving Table?

I felt bad all day. I’m sure it couldn’t be due to overeating on Thanksgiving like a hungry pig at a trough of fresh acorns. Some of my nephews have had the swine H1N1 influenza, but that was weeks ago; they can’t still be infectious, can they? Not that I’m paranoid or anything, you […]

Gobble, Gobble! The Big Feast Day is Finally Here…

Question: Which side of the turkey has the most feathers?

Don’t think about it too much, now; you might get a painful brain sprain. You wouldn’t want me to have that on my conscience during the Holidays, would you? Good. Besides, the answer’s pretty obvious. (I hope.)

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, […]

Out of Town Sunday; Only Time for One Joke

I’m on the road today, home tomorrow. Enjoying the first big rain in south Texas in years! We gotta go clear some trees that are down on the road or I won’t be home tomorrow. So in the meantime, here’s a good bad joke for you…

Boudreaux, Thibideaux, Pierre, Trusclair and Old Man John were playing […]

Friday Follies, the Louisiana Edition

People in Louisiana accuse Texans of being mean to Cajuns. That’s a damned lie base canard. We aren’t mean, and we don’t make fun of Cajuns. We simply observe and report the facts…

It seems that kids in South Louisiana don’t know they’re Cajun. So the state held an essay contest. Morgan Builliard won with […]

Fish 4 Friday: Spicy Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

Okay, let’s get right to it. There’s no way we’d be allowed to hold Cajun & Creole Cuisine Month without at least one jambalaya recipe. It’s a very old rule (which somebody just made up). It’s probably even illegal; or at least fattening. So, we’re doing jambalaya first.

First, the history. (You DO come by […]

Friday Follies: Avoiding the Leftover Hotdog Blues

I was cruisin’ around Slashfood yesterday and saw this post. Man, there’s some good eats on that grill! The poor slob grill master working those lovelies was in a hot dog cookoff, and he didn’t win. My first thought was, how could you NOT win with bacon? Seemed like a complete miscarriage of justice […]

Happy Eightieth Birthday, Dad

It’s been another hectic week, with so much going on this summer. Travel, research, and good eats, all taking place during one of the hottest summers we’ve had in decades. With so many distractions, it might be excusable to forget a few important things.

One that didn’t slip by, though, is my dad’s birthday. He […]
