Who am I honoring on tattoo Tuesday?

It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. who matter. – Marlene Dietrich

I am very grateful for mine.





The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing…
that is a friend who cares.

Smoke and Chickens

July 22, 2011

What are you smoking?  Last weekend Cousin (Cooking Guru) Brian came over and taught me how to smoke a chicken on my Weber kettle grill.  A chicken…and some shrimp…and some sausage…and some more sausage…and pretty much everything else in the fridge that was smoke-able.

Shared dinner with friends – see the excellent pasta salad contributed by Breda.  Grill bread and more was contributed by William the Coroner.  Judy brought the beer.  In the lower picture, the chicken is still wearing its cheesecloth protection device.

Thanks, friends and kudos, Brian, you are the Master.

Can’t wait to do it again.
