More Fulton Market

Eggy-weggs! No lomticks of toast though...
Yes my droogs, another pic from the meat packing district a couple of blocks away from Loft on Laflin HQ.

The Pig Cutting Board

This is probably older than me...

Hot Chicken

In dinner news, I made some fiercely hot chicken.
The "old 40 clove" thing you have probably seen forever in various cookbooks, but like me (and it would appear a lot of my friends, I queried about it), have never made.
The gravy had a Scotch Bonnet in it and Barry and I sweated profusely and had runny noses from the heat.
It was in Barry's words, "A keeper!"

Engine 103

This is the super sweet, fire house doggie across Laflin from us! He likes tummy rubs...

Where's the goddamn taco truck?

Yeah, I live next to a meat packing district and yes, it is a trip to wander!
Best part though, are the taco trucks that appear during lunch/shift breaks.
Wish more sold to the public, the meat packers that is, the taco trucks sell to anyone!.... [I got a tax number (thanks Barry) but the volume would be the deal breaker].

Good Sweet Lord, it was hot out! I took the time to slow cook a pork shoulder for a good ten hours. It's in a half-assed Carolina based vinegar sauce (mostly 'cause if it's too vinegary, I don't care for it). A teeny pinch of sugar the next time, I think...

Oh Canada!

So, Barry and I drove up to Toronto to see our pal James rock out... awesome show, James rocks and Toronto is our new go-to place...

This is James rocking:

We snagged some Peameal Bacon!
Two, 2 pound roasts and four sliced slices.... all awesomely vacuum sealed by the butcher for E-Z freezing action! One of the roasts is earmarked for my BFF Ron! (lol)
