And a happy Farmers’ Market day it is!
Because I have PJF steaks, and ground beef, and fresh peas, and lettuce, and green beans, and four pounds of tomatos, and fresh corn, and chipotle honey butter, and a pint of plain honey, and fresh eggs, and yeast rolls, and new potatos, and life is GOOD!
And Lucy made a friend. This is Franklin. He’s four months old, and if it weren’t for the size and sex difference, they could be twins.
And this was breakfast when we got home. Duck bacon, fresh eggs, yeast rolls, fig jam. That’s a breakfast that can see ya through. I was planning on BLTs for lunch with some of the PJF bacon, but I am NOT EVEN hungry, and we’re going to have surf and turf tonight. With PJF ribeyes and lobster tails. And new potatos in a truffle balsamic butter sauce. And strawberries and pound cake. I am also smoking duck breasts and making bacon jam and homemade bread today; I’d thought about going ahead and confiting the duck legs, but I suspect I’ll run out of time before that takes place. So I guess that’s tomorrow.

That’s how you deal with heat in the house for braising; leave.
