    I have some oxtails waiting for attention in the fridge now, and a bottle of wine that I really, really shouldn't drink - I think braised oxtail stew is going to happen.
    I'm sure there are a lot of recipes out there that don't require brining - it's such a fatty delcious meat. Also, since it has to cool a bit to get the membrane off safely, you can always put slices of it in a pan to char it a bit and get that boiled look gone.

    I've never tried oxtails - damn, I gotta buy me a cow.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      • Regarding the people who have contact with kids you have to have what's called a DBS check in the UK, which means there vetted prior to being able to work with them, it's not fool proof, but its better than nowt!Disclosure and Barring Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        54 degrees, fork me that's a bit toasty, it's meant to reach a tarmac melting 20 over here today!

        Regarding the gin, very rarely drink shorts, but have you tried Bombay Sapphire?

        • Hey Joanie, We are having humidity along with the heat here, very unusual, and it did not cool off at night! I guess this is just a slight taste of what you get in New Orleans. I'm not used to it, I felt like I was awake most of the night.

            DBS sounds like a start. I have tried Bombay and it's good. When I order a martini in a bar, I usually let the bartender choose and just instruct, "not bottom shelf, not top shelf - you pick." They often pick Bombay.

            Ack - the dreaded H-word. Yes, those nights with no relief. At 2:30 this morning, I went to get some water from the fridge and I could feel warm air blowing from the only window I have open (just a crack). All I could think was, "how the f*** does it stay so warm with no sun?" Hope yours lets up soon. There is actually cool water coming out of the faucet, so I'm thinking this might not be a terrible summer - but they all kinda suck down here.

              • I think the child food hunger thing is getting pandemic, the use of food banks over here is going ballistic, not sure what the answer is, but it sure as assholes ain't strifing the shit out of the already poor as there doing here!
                Not sure about your's, but our goverment gives fucking millions of pounds in overseas aid, which is all well and good, but not when you got millions starving at home, so I think your comment about a certain democrat and congress can probably be attributed to many another political set up, mine included, hence why I've sort of given up on it, as there all bastards!
                Probably my biggest ran on here ever, sorry 'bout that!!

                Take it that it's still a bit tepid then! Is rooster edible, if not what a waste & hope the shovels alright as well, don't wanna hurt a good banjo!!

                  Ahhh... the 70's urban hippie. (^That was the 60's I know... but still.)

                  It's true.
                  It didn't work out very well because dad was psycho, but it's true.

                  • When my son was younger he named one of our roosters Mr. Fricassee so of course when the time came (can't have a crowing rooster as we live w/in city limits) we had to fricassee him.

                    Cori thanks for the peaches song and I love the paintings! We've been enjoying some lovely white nectarines that smell like roses.

                    • Speaking of roses...

                      One of the reasons I like the Hendrick's gin is the rose note that it has.
                      I'm also pretty sure that the rose note is why some people don't like it... but anyway.

                      I think that's why it goes nicely with the hard ciders that I put it in for 'Cheeky Juice'.
                      Apples, as well as pears, and stone fruits, are members of the rose family, and I think that's why this note marries so well in the combination.

                        I agree with getting one's own house in order before you start helping others - especially financially. I once read that the US and other countries have been giving medical aid to Haiti for over 50 years and while I'm not heartless, I have to wonder when a hand up becomes a useless hand out. It's like the old saying about giving a man a fish (he eats for a day) or teaching a man to fish (so he can feed himself).

                        I don't know what he did with the rooster - I was laughing too hard to get follow up. LOL

                        Sorry Dad was a psycho - your last name isn't Manson, is it? Every movement has them. We didn't succeed, but some of us really tried to change things.

                        C'mere Mr. Fricasee - it's only going to hurt for a second. hahaha Loves me some nectarines, though for some reason the fuzz on peaches is off-putting.

                        Cori, I saw a fifth of that Hendrick's at Whole Foods - if it lives up to its price point, it should be pretty good. I got a bottle of Lunazul (tequila).

                          • Ohhhh, Joanie, you are killing me.... Stinky cheeses (plural!!) and wrinkly olives, and eaten unapologetically... How am I going to make it through this fast with you whispering bleating sweet nothings in my ear like this?!?!

                            • Ohhh... that Italian Fontal sounds delish.

                              As does the Bucherondin, but I will also eat Bierkase which will stink up your whole house judging by horrible noises my sister-in-law makes about it when my brother and I pull out the block if I'm visiting!
                              Nasty gym stocks have been mentioned, but it tastes so good.
                              Adding goaty, and soft/runny, to that could only make it better.

                              Have you had Butterkase as well... not stinky, mild like Muenster, but very rich and decadent.

                              I also love a good stinky blue.


                              I prefer the old Iron Chef episodes, the non-American version.
                              A. more interesting ingredients
                              B. the translations are just priceless!

                                I'm sorry; I know... I'm the perennial bad influence. It's just been so long since I had any because I'm trying to sort of boycott grocery chains. Problem is that our local cheese store has prices that are so high and sadly WFoods can do them for less. If it helps at all, I haven't had butter in about two months. And that was just out of laziness - nearest butter I'll eat is a mile away and I've also given myself the rule of "must walk if it's a mile or less away."

                                I wrote both of those down for my next trip, with an asterisk next to the Bierkase for the sheer pain of it. LOL. Walk there (2.5 miles), bus back. My 21 year old car may last another few years. I try to get one cheese I've never tried whenever I go. Fortunately they sell them in quarter to half pound portions, though I'm sure they'd sell you more if you asked.

                                I love the original Iron Chef! All the pageantry was so camp. And those chefs can use every part of a fish like no one else.
