I'd much rather read than write so it's not much of a blog...

Thank you J.

J. gave me an Italian measuring beaker. I love it.
It's even made of recycled glass.

I'm glad to put up a post that doesn't involve meat. Given the modest amount of meat that we eat it's unsettling to see the previous two posts on my own blog.

It took the better part of an afternoon to hack – and I do mean hack – the damn ham into portions I can cook with beans. I prefer to use smoked hocks without sodium nitrite but I just can't bring myself to throw away all the Virginia ham especially after it made for a very tasty batch of Anasazi beans last week.
