makin’ meat.

I’m just the clean-up crew, but I am here to post some photos of Fred’s weekend sausage-making extravaganza.

Supplies: slabs of meat and fat, spices, stand mixer and accessories.

Essential helper: Spencer the chocolate lab.

Not sure which flavor: either hot Italian or maple.

Cajun sausage - unusual because its contents are cooked. "This one smells best," says Spencer.

More makin' of the Cajun sausage.

All ready for sampling on Saturday morning.

gummy sponges.

This is Fred.

Pat Pound asked that i post this to go along with Buckeye Bombs:

what you need:

  • 1 large glass, plastic wrap, rubber band, working refrigerator,
  • gummy bears or some type of gummy candy (there are rumors of Buckeye gummies and, if there are, you will see photos in a couple weeks),
  • vodka is probably best, but i’ve been soaking some in whiskey for a couple weeks.  i’ll let you know.

what you do:

  • put gummies into glass, about 3/4 full.
  • pour vodka so that it covers gummies.
  • cover glass with plastic wrap and secure with rubber band.
  • place in refrigerator for at least 3 days, but it is better if you can do it for 5 days.

the gummies, like sponges, fill with vodka and expand into tasty snacks.  IT’S LIKE OSMOSIS, so i do this in order to gain knowledge and to understand how science helps us in our everyday lives.  also, the gummies we use are made from real fruit juice, thus, they are good fun and good for you.

some visuals.

Ethel here, also known as momsbrain as far as WordPress is concerned…

It was a lovely morning for a tailgate — a little cool. By the time we got into the game, it was positively hot and sunny. It was a short and sweet tailgate before a noon game, and a smaller crowd than usual, too, with the Crappies away at Podcamp and the Coochie Doctor and Matlock delayed by parental and professional responsibilities (like surgery, for example). And Fred and Ethel – well, we weren’t super-punctual. No surprise. But we got the eggs there in plenty of time for the massive pile of hash. And we did have guests: high school friends of Pat’s.

Bud had a nice setup for cooking.

Bud and his buds sling roast beef hash on a portable grill.

Plenty of seating for the dining portion of the tailgate.

Pat does some prep work while Marilyn and Cheryl chat.

Filling our plates.

Fred exhibited some divided loyalties, from head...

...to toe.

new beginning.

This is Ethel, reporting in from Fred’s Facebook status:

“[Fred] knows that for a few hours this Thursday, life will seem less complicated…neither January nor spring is the beginning. I always have felt like everything starts with fall.”
