Pork fat Pizza

Today at Serious Eats:

"The griddle-cooked Sicilian flatbread-style pizza at Otto is adorned with thin, semi-translucent ribbons of sliced lardo and finished with chopped rosemary and fruity olive oil. The ethereal ribbons melt gently into the warm pizza crust, acting something like a glorious animal butter."

And I quote: Glorious animal butter.

God have mercy on us all.

Pig House

I am told there are no pigs there these days. Which is too bad, given my love of pork in (almost) all forms.

Maybe She Was Right About my Vanity...

Upon Apparel by John Bunyan (From

XVI. Upon Apparel.
God gave us Cloaths to hide our Nakedness,
And we by them, do it expose to View.
Our Pride, and unclean Minds, to an excess,
By our Apparel we to others shew.

But, Gentle Reader, I have had apple pie my mind, on account of having been served it over the weekend, at the end of what had to be one of the most enjoyable family meals (outside of my own family, of course) I've had the pleasure of attending in quite some time. And so, I set out, as it is, of course, the Year of the Pie, to make, for the first time in my life, apple pie.

What I Ate Last Week Some Time (a special edition of WIAT)

Sometimes it's hard to make everything come together at once. Life, academics, friends, family, work. Blogging. It all takes time. Luckily, there are hamburgers to take the edge off...
