Heat up a bowl of chili (no tomatoes, no mince), hot bath, Icelandic murder mysteries.

I looked at myself in the mirror today. I look dreadful.

I should clarify - I look in the mirror every day to check I haven't left toothpaste all over my mouth, to floss, to make sure my hair is combed and there is no visible patches of moisturiser. But in doing these things I very rarely actually look at myself, just these individual little items. This could be a metaphor for something very profound, if I could get the energy to be inspired.

I could have gone out for St. Patrick's Day beers with people, but there was at least one individual there I actively dislike spending any time near so I think hibernation is the best option.

BTW, the chili recipe is this one with a few substitutions based on the chilis available in the Mexican store and a dark beer used instead of the suggested.

No boiled bacon and colcannon?

Boiling is an act of vandalism upon the salt pig.

It just needs some tender care and ministration.  Easy to ruin, just as easy to have perfect, but the latter takes a ~6 hour stint in the kitchen with ~30 min periods of activity.

I'd prefer to soak it, then glaze with honey and cloves and put it in the oven.

You can do that by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #5 Tue Mar 22, 2011 at 06:15:47 PM EST
After it's boiled.  And make a sticky sugar and rum rub to go on the outside too.

... this St Patrick's Day I didn't get called a cunt for suggesting that the whole thing was a cynical marketing ploy by Diageo, so that's got to be a win :)
