    you seem like a nice enough guy, but these kinds of posts are infuriating.

    NO! He is coming home to take care of his wife. So, you'll just have to get in line and grab a number. :p

    So, a tip for all of you - Zumba lovers out there (especially @Xue Sheng ): don't wear workout capri leggings you bought when you were at your heaviest weight, before you'd lost 15 pounds, to a class with a high-energy instructor. You will end up doing the OTHER Picard maneuver the entire 45 minutes.

    Sometimes, it really is just about throwing things together and cooking them. Driving home from Zumba, I had NO idea what I was going to have for dinner. Here is what I ended up with:

    - rose potato wedges roasted with herbs de Provence, lemon pepper, pancetta, and truffle oil.
    - scallops cooked in the tiniest bit of duck fat with more lemon pepper.
    - small salad of tomato and home-grown spinach and lettuce.

    Well... I do hope you'd cook bacon wrapped apples before you eat them...

    Somehow, I suspect most of us don't have to worry about wearing capri leggings... ever.

    Well, our local drag strip is open, and I've been there the last couple Friday nights. That's exciting. :)

    Heading home from Detroit. Detroit is less fun than Maui.

    I baked a ham slice, dusted with black pepper, ground clove, and brown sugar. Made a box of "cheesy" scalloped potatoes to go alongside...

    I'll claim it as "real" cooking since I seasoned the ham...

    the secret is that cooking fish is super easy. Salt, pepper, garlic, some lemon.

    Yeah, a simple fish like that is really about the same effort at that ham slice.
