 No eggs?
 At least I am in a good mood. An old grad school buddy is in town for bit. He used to play in an old time string band here in SLC, The Buckle Busters. An afternoon of tunes, talk, beer and munchies. Folks liked my grilled zucchini and chicken wings, both done in a Jamaican jerk style.  Burp. But for now, I've got work to do. mjb.
Next Saturday is the Tomato Sandwich Party at the community garden around the corner. I plan to be there slicing away. I may take a small bit of hand whisked mayo with me for my sandwich. They provide fresh pesto for those who want it. They just harvested 32 *pounds* of basil - that is a LOT of greenery!   mjb.
http://www.justonecookbook.com/how-to/how-to-make-dashi-jiru/ The above site uses dried anchovies in one variation, that's where I got the idea of using the dried shrimp I have on hand. mjb.
What a coincidence! I'm planning on making a shitake and dried shrimp dashi this weekend as well! I may stroll down to Southeast Market and get some kombu, haven't decided yet. mjb.
My wife just walked into my office, looked at the computer and asked what I was doing. I was scrolling through the collection of pictures from this challenge, working on selecting the next host. I showed her some of the top contenders, some things she might like. And she says "You have to pick one of those as the best?  That could be difficult."   Yep, great work so far everybody.   mjb.
I don't truss or remove the wishbone, but Keller's method is pretty close to mine. If I have oranges or lemons on hand a wedge or two, as well as garlic cloves, goes in the cavity.  Poultry and citrus play well together.   And yes, if there is still ice on some parts of the bird when it goes in the oven you will have a difficult time getting even roasting.
All these years I have been cooking I don't have even one cleaver. let alone two. Could be fun, though.   mjb.
Going to an afternoon garden party sunday, thinking I might do grilled jerked zucchini. Might need to do a test batch saturday to see if it is feasible.   mjb.
