    I just ate a lot of ice cream... and now I'm paying the digestive consequences of that sin. Oh, god, but it was worth it!

    Excellent dinner tonight. My wife got a nicely filleted duck breast and roasted it in a maple syrup sauce. The duck, with its crispy skin and moist tender meat, was cut up and served on a hash brown potato cake with the juices pour over it. A salad on the side…

    I’m happy.

    ok got a leg of goat. not very big but broke it down the way one breaks a leg of veal. with the trim and bones made a stock. and had left the top round the bottom round the flank and 2 assorted cuts. small but braised them with carrots-celery-onion and garlic. 2 hrs or so. then used a hand held bender and made the sauce. the veggies are real soft so no need to thicken w/ slurry or roux. it sliced real nice and was very tasty

    I used to live in Sacramento, California. The Chinese living there called it Sange Mantou (three mantous). Interesting story about this:

    "A popular Chinese legend relates that the name mantou actually originated from the homophonous word mántóu, which literally means "barbarian's head".

    "The legend was set in the Three Kingdoms period (220–280 CE) when Zhuge Liang, the Chancellor of the state of Shu Han, led the Shu army on a campaign against Nanman forces in the southern lands of Shu, which correspond to roughly present-day Yunnan, China, and northern Myanmar.

    "After subduing the Nanman king Meng Huo, Zhuge Liang led the army back to Shu, but met a swift-flowing river which defied all attempts to cross it. A barbarian lord informed him that in olden days, the barbarians would sacrifice 49 men and throw their heads into the river to appease the river deity and allow them to cross. As Zhuge Liang did not want to cause any more of his men to lose their lives, he ordered his men to slaughter the livestock the army brought along, and fill their meat into buns shaped roughly like human heads (round with a flat base). The buns were then thrown into the river. After a successful crossing, he named the bun "barbarian's head" (mántóu, 蠻頭, which evolved into the modern 饅頭)."

    Slurry? Yuk!
    In British English: Manure slurry, a mixture of animal waste, organic matter, and sometimes water often known simply as "slurry" in agricultural use, used as fertilizer after ageing in a slurry pit

    I think "slurry" is not quite so offensive a word. For instance, in the mining of coal, it's often mixed with water into "coal slurry" that can be quickly transported long distances in pipes. Naturally it has to be dewatered and dried on the other end!

    Just popped two fat lamb shanks into the sous vide pot. They’ll cook at 144F (62C) for 48 hours. They’re for my son and future daughter-in-law, who will be here on Sunday. Will serve with a mustard-shallot sauce and a side salad plus cauliflower or corn.

    I’ve made this a time or two before and it’s always fantastic, juicy and super-tender. Here’s the recipe, though with a different sauce:

    no slurry can be corn starch mixed with cold water to thicken a broth. or one can use flour and water w/ the same results. a cooking term

    Al dente spaghetti in homemade tomato/meat sauce. Chicken breast slices marinated in soy sauce and ginger. A rather large portion of baby green peas. One slice of 5 grain Italian bread. A small bottle of caffeine-free diet Coke. A medium-sized organic red delicious apple.

    Tempting the community with photos would be unfairly tempting and cruel.....especially those that are so much larger than life.

    Last night. Pumpkin spice cake with plenty of whipped cream. Unfortunate consequences ensued this morning. My own fault, really.

    Tuna Helper tonight, really quite a nice comfort food. Canned tuna from Trader Joe’s has real chunky tuna meat, unlike the big-name brands that seem to have only messy fish flakes and paste.
