OK, how great is this? Danish Holsteins raised in saltwater marshes. Pre-salted beef raised in a gentle, wet and warm marsh. Ideal conditions for a flavorful, well marbled piece of meat. Need to find a source for this.
The wife is in this weekend after a three week absence and I’m getting excited. Friday we’re at a cocktail party benefit in an elegant old hotel where Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas and Del McCoury will play. Saturday I have reservations at two restaurants and am hoping a friend can get me a table at a third, better place. All three have great reputations in any case. I love taking my woman to nice places. We have a great life when we’re together.
I don’t know what I did to piss off the Gods so heartily, but it seems that I am a walking curse. First a bus crashed into our camera truck injuring 15. Then a triple stabbing on the edge of our set with one d.o.a. A steam pipe exploded, spewing asbestos into our stage. Two men were shot to death around the corner from our set. Last week I had a lovely dinner at Prezza. The next day the place went up in smoke, will take til at least Labor Day to get the place back together it was so bad. I’m trying to figure out a way to appease Fortuna but in the meantime I’ll befriend your enemies for a fee.
Yesterday a bus crashed into our camera truck. Said truck was parked in the curb lane. For three days. Legally permitted to be there. Bus hit a 55’ truck set up on chocks and with the emergency brake on hard enough to move it ten feet forward. Uphill. Shook the shit out of the loader who was working in the truck at the time.
Today we were doing some big traffic lockups and a fairly small stunt when the police detail working our set lept into action and subdued a fleeing perp who had just stabbed three in a domestic dispute, killing one.
Hopefully things go a little better tomorrow. And the next time you see a cop thank them. Just in general.
blatherlikeme replied to your photo: Rabbit Mousse. Blended rabbit meat, somehow made fluffly? See, that might be going too far. How was it?
It was completely delicious. The mouse was really more like minced rabbit in a bit of cream. It was wrapped in a very tender and moist piece of rabbit loin, and the crispy bacon formed a sort of basket around it which held it all together. One of the better things I have eaten in quite a while.
