All I got is Google, can you believe I did not see a single sailor. We ARE at WAR right now and it isnt as sexy to be a sailor I guess. Past fleet weeks during non war times have included boats and sailors from other countries. The city was a little quiet, the tourist areas were not as congested either. Typical long weekend where it seems like a ghost town - not the usual 20 million people more like around 12 million to make it seem quiet.

Dried Mushrooms - just string em up and let em dry.
chile and sauted mushrooms with early peas as shown here but I still have some left. Oh I failed to mention there is one food my onivorious child will not eat and that is mushrooms, so I am at this one solo. What i usually do when I have too many mushrooms is to let them dry. Dried mushrooms have a lot of flavor, they pulverize into a fine powder very nicely and they can act like a secret ingredient when added to soups or breads or sauces or even scrambled eggs. I am going to make a pissaladiere next, well actually I am not going to make the whole pizza thing just the topping to spread on other things, crackers, celery who knows.

Then our group threw spears and touched snakes. We slept in cold cabins and came home.
I did not photograph everything because for some reason me an one of the camp directors became instant nemesis's, so much that during the racket that was a drumming circle he managed to hear just me and asked if I could stop because I wasnt doing it right - to which I replied no. He got upset and left the room. I got upset and left the room later only to be asked by the drum leader to sit in the middle and play some more-right next to my buddy the nemesis.
Fun had by all.
So we came home and I made Oso Buco with Jasmine rice.

I didnt get in the water but I thought I would show you my wet head anyway. Its early in the morning and I look a little tired, plus it isnt too easy to take pictures of yourself. Canned ravioli, Big Macs and store brand soda around these parts lately so no food pictures in fact I am going over to Mushy's now to get some canned inspiration. (not true just not making anything interesting and not taking any photos, lots of smoothies and protein shakes, and repeats of favorites. How often can I post rice balls or sushi?)
Later in the day...I guess its not tired just old. I look cranky, like an old crumudgeon, is that even how you spell it...I need to know since that is the new me. I had a makeover. I went from young to old and this is the result. Why am I so cranky? At least I am living to complain about it, complaining is a good thing it means you are alive and pathetic. I hate complainers and now it tis the new me. I am on a mission to discredit the school librarian. She hates me and I feel the same. She mistakenly told me once that "she knows whats best for my child"..well things changed at that second. Any suggestions on how to go about this will be tried once, evaluated and if the evaluation is positive they will be used till exhaustion.
The Dogg and the Pupp are ready for summer!

Remember the ribs? Well after they were done and while the grill was cooling down I threw on some squash.
Burnt it basically and then blended it into a soup with the garlic adding some barbequed chicken and some mexican sour cream for looks, add toast and you 're done.
Out-takes just for fun....
