    PO’G: Your artistic eye knows no limits! Color….black/white? All in the same composition … and poetic in nature. And the previous post (psychedelic in nature?) reveals and confirms pure prodigy.

    But all that doesn’t hold a candle to your literary talents and sense of “Mark Twain/Oscar Wilde” brilliance!!

    That said, being a guy who needs more than intellectual nourishment….when can we expect a culinary posting from you? 🙂

      JD, I hate to admit it, but I haven’t been much interested in cooking lately. When I’m not all boogered up with the allergies, I’m speedy from the antihistamines, and neither condition is conducive to a big appetite.

      So I’ve been cranking out simple stuff. Puffy tacos from Homesick Texan, with a side salad and arroz rojo from “Mexican Everyday” by Rick Bayless (I use the rice cooker). Quesadillas from “The Santa Fe School of Cooking Cookbook.” A simple bolognese from “Everyday Italian” by Giada De Laurentiis.

      And a really basic vegetables-over-rice deal that started as a Betty Crocker recipe, from when I first started to cook. It’s had a little doctoring over the years to use better ingredients — brown rice instead of white, cannellini instead of red kidney beans, a mix of red, orange and yellow bell peppers instead of one green (plus a jalapeño just ’cause), and a good sharp Cheddar from Cabot or Black Diamond. Occasionally I’ll add a couple of diced Applegate Organics chicken sausages to give it some heft.

      I do have my eyes on a new cookbook, “Tu Casa Mi Casa,” by Enrique Olvera and Peter Meehan. I heard about it on NPR and am thinking I might snap it up and have a go at something new for Cinco de Mayo.

      I think I’ve cooked this one, too. It popped up on the NYT this morning. “Mexican Everyday” includes a similar Tex-Mex recipe, but with chicken instead of beef, that reminds me of my introduction to Southwestern fare at El Rancho in Universal City outside Randolph AFB near San Antone.

        Allergies/antihistamines: You know the neti pot secret, yeah? Add a half teaspoon of Johnson’s baby shampoo to the salt water. Closest thing to voodoo magic I’ve ever personally experienced.

    Turk has the right idea. Too bad we can’t talk the dumpster into trying to give him a bath. Turk would whup his ass proper like. I know, violence is not the answer. But, it makes me smile to thing about the asshole nursing his arms and tiny hands for a few days after a round with the Turkinator.

      Oops. Mia is the black one, right? I give up.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Miss Mia is a Russian blue, which means she’s gray (oh, those sneaky fuckin’ Russians). El Turko is white, with a fading black skullcap and blue, blue eyes.

      El Turko at rest

    Dishonest Don’s now got the Italian nonna who runs the House molto arrabbiata with Fred Flintstone’….William Barr’s antics. They need to impeach Don the Con now so the traitors who support him can be well-known by the 2020 election.
    The Founding Fathers have got to be doing 360’s in their graves with what is going on in DeeCee these days.
    Meanwhile, the Fascist wing of the Italian government is hobknobbing with the likes of Victor Orban and Marine LePen – will they invite Don the Racist to their party next?

      This whorehouse has so many douchenozzles in need of tar tuxedos and a chauffeured ride home on a splintery rail, we could start up an “Impeachment R’ Us” franchise. Sorry, Republicans need not apply. We’ve already had a good long look at your résumés and you fall well short of our minimum standards.

    I may be crazy but I just thought of this: The best way to assure Trump is not reelected is to put the economy in a downturn. When this happens, the president is usually blamed. Maybe the Democrats should figure out a way to surreptitiously begin the process.

    Sure; it will cause some suffering, but not as much as we’re enduring now with Trump in office.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Like Captain America crashing the Hydra bomber! In the first movie, before the whole Marvel thing metastasized into absurdity. This I like.

    • larryatcycleitalia Says:

      I think if someone (anyone) could “put the economy in a downturn” they’d use the same tools to make it better, no? If people are dumb enough to vote for Dishonest Don again, would economic stress change their minds? You know what my wife says….

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Well, there is that. OK, impeachment it is. Charlie Pierce wants to impeach everybody lately, including The New York Times.
