  1. Huh?

  2. shhh

  3. Actually, it’s quite balmy here.

  4. 70s here.

  5. Dan has been giving me Angel crap all morning. He’s decided that the Astros will be his AL team this year. Don’t poke the bear!

  6. Sauerbraten recipe poated at the recipe place.

  7. 70 degrees here.

  8. It was 50 here. I sweated. It was awful.

  9. Did anybody eat all of anybody else’s jelly beans except for the awful-tasting black ones today?

  10. The black ones are the best. That’s where the THC is.

  11. >>>except for the awful-tasting black ones today

    Black ones were my favorite ones, racist

  12. No, Sean, I just stole all the purple ones.

  13. Nobody eats jelly beans.

  14. I haven’t had a jelly bean in 5 years. I miss the black ones the most.

  15. Damn. We’ve got a ballgame. Even though it’s MMM kind of chicks. If Dan calls me Connie Griner one more time…

  16. We gets shit-tons of hummingbirds here, even without a feeder. Most are pretty cool.

    Also, our cool weather? It didn’t quite make 90 today.

  17. After the “Animal House” clip, I got this.

  18. YES

  19. OMG!!!

  20. Wow, quite a day for Louisville today.

    I hope Kentucky survives the riots.

  21. I enjoyed that a lot.

    Sorry Dave.

  22. Shut it.

  23. If you name your kid Odyssey it might not end well.

  24. Pastiche.

  25. Yeah, I know. Louisville came out fightin with the 3s and never stoppped.

  26. Black ones were my favorite ones, racist

    I haven’t had a jelly bean in 5 years. I miss the black ones the most.

    You people are weird.

    (Yeah, I said “you people.” Deal with it.)

  27. It isn’t cold here. It’s gorgeous.

  28. No Jelly Belly’s, No Peace.

  29. That was amazing.

    I almost feel bad for Brian Griner.

  30. Astros with a DH. This is gonna take some getting used to.

  31. In-laws had an amazing, rare tenderloin of beef. I can hardly move.

    Of course, being dead I don’t move around much anyway.

  32. J’ames, I know! I did a double take on the match up.

  33. Ham and cheezy potatoes ate. So very full now.

  34. I guess that means that that mafioso lookin dude from uconn is gonna win another ring. Shit’s gotta be fixed. It’s like he’s the Sinatra of coaches or something.

  35. Srsly, Jay. Why didn’t they just boot the Brewers back to the AL?

    Oh, right. Selig.

  36. Hey xbrad,

    You need to feature Sherry Coales, head bskb coach at OU, on a load heat. She’s worthy.

  37. I could not even be mummified. Because my body is so full of Easter dinner there is no room for asphaltum.

  38. Yeah….. uh… She’s scheduled for the second Tuesday in…. 2021.

  39. ~waves at Sean~ Let’s go Reds! Our Canadian is younger than your DR!!!!

  40. DR?

  41. Dominican Republic representative.

  42. DERRRR

  43. Seriously?

  44. Who are you talking about? Aybar?

  45. Pujols. Aybar works too. Dan is all Trout all Pujols all the time. Some guy that used to play for the Rangers.

  46. She’s prettier than Sarah Silverman any day.

  47. Cyn, I have those in two colors!!!

  48. Piker.

  49. Hey! Dinner was tasty but my date forgot the first rule of Fight Club, so they had to take her out back and cap her like Ol’ Yeller…

  50. Sauerbraten recipe poated at the recipe place.


    In-laws had an amazing, rare tenderloin of beef.

    Meat place had an amazing special on whole tenderloins yesterday. I got the strip instead because we already have a freezer full of tenderloin steaks from the last sale, and I don’t care for them.Scott loves them though. If I had thought about Beef Wellington yesterday, I would have gotten the loin too. Would have been a good reason to make a big batch of duxelles.

    Oh well. Hopefully they’ll have another sale at some point.

  51. Mundane, it sounded like you got the West coast version of Wiser’s in-laws. I had to laugh at your post with the “mean teacher” bit.

  52. My mom read in some woman’s magazine that the Target brand of Archer Farms ham was voted the best. That’s what we had tonight and I will definitely buy it again. Picked it up for about $1.90/lb.

  53. Yeah…My sister is a freaking saint, but she has some strange friends.

  54. A QUART of lemon juice?? Are you shitting me? I always thought this thing was made with vinegar!


    *throws handfuls and handfuls of change into the swear jar from reading this recipe*

  55. Lemon juice puts the sauer in sauerbraten

  56. Swear jar?!?



  57. Why store your swear words in a jar? Set them free!

  58. Seems that everyone is learning to make sauerbraten. That traffic spike looks like BBF.

  59. Cyn, I think that AF ham is cyclical at Target.

  60. Big, beautiful…Oh wait, that not it…

  61. cyclical

    Really? Aww, damn. It was fantastic. Not too salty and the glaze was spot-on. Might have to make a purchase for the freezer tomorrow.

  62. That traffic spike looks like BBF.

    BSS: Big Sunday Sauerbraten. Hawt!

  63. Laura, everyone else’s recipe has vinegar. This is Great Aunt Helma;s recipe. I also make a lot.

  64. Cyclical. We sold out of Easter baskets on Tuesday. I was ready to yell by yesterday. Retail cycles weren’t suddenly invented yesterday.

  65. Aww, that sucks, we have to stomp the snakes tomorrow.

    Sorry Cyn.

  66. Whoa, Rick Ankiel is back in the majors?

  67. Ha! Dan just said the same thing about Ankiel.

  68. Roamy, does the lemon juice turn the meat grey while marinating?

  69. Atheist complained that Christians got Easter and Christmas holidays, Jews had Hanukkah and Passover holidays, that atheists should get their own day off, too. Okay, they get tomorrow off. April Fool’s!!!

  70. Our Safeway had ham for $0.99/lb(or, spiral-cut, for $1.99/lb!).
    There are only two of us, so I looked for a small one. I got the smallest ‘half-ham’ they had. It was 9.5lbs!
    Cheapest meat evah!!!

    Gonna cut the left-overs into 1 pound parcels and freeze them.

    Anita was over at the other-place all day, working to get it rent-able ASAP.
    She came home tired and wandered into the kitchen, paused, eyes light-up, and she looked at me, with a smile; “I smell ham!!!”
    It was a very-good dinner!

  71. Laura, yes, it does.

  72. Rick Ankiel would be the only reason I watch baseball. HHD material.

  73. Awesome, Crispy! I’m curing our own little Canadian bacon for smoking next weekend. Not quite the same as ham. But the loin was on sale, at least.

    If history repeats itself, whole pork loins should be on sale again next week. Typically every holiday that uses hams creates a sale on the other choice cuts.

  74. Most baseball players are HHD material. All about the butt.

  75. >> Roamy, does the lemon juice turn the meat grey while marinating?

    oh gross

  76. This Target-brand one was half-spiral cut. Is that how a spiral-cut is supposed to be? I’ve never bought one before. I may have to have a little late night snack since we had early supper.

  77. I don’t know. Dan cooks. I eat.

  78. Half ham here for $0.88 last week. Still need to slice that fucker up.

  79. MMM is scheduled. It’s text-light but content rich.

  80. oh gross

  81. I saw this pic at Theo’s a couple weeks ago. She’s just a very pretty girl.

  82. Most baseball players are HHD material. All about the butt.

    Jon Kruk
    Fernando Valenzuela
    Prince Fielder

  83. Most! Shut it PG. Have you ever bought an outfield seat to watch Jeter play? Did you take binoculars to watch Jim Palmer pitch?

  84. Looks almost like Erica Campbell, XBrad, but it might just be the smile.

  85. Yes, the smile is similar. Very friendly smile.

  86. Laura,
    They had whole pork-loins for $1.99/lb, and I was very tempted.
    I cut them into 2lb chunks, freeze, and crock-pot them, over time.

    I did not have room in the fridge-freezer for both, dammit!

    $1.99 is the cheapest I’ve seen here for pork-loin…

  87. HAHAHA! Who did that blog? Read the “About” page. HAHA!

  88. That’s YOUR place, Xbrad?? Bwahahahahaha!

  89. I set that up right around…. March 2009.



    Some of those are totally legit problems. Really!

  92. the one for the Cami Secret brings back laughs to me

  93. Cyn, your bewbs keep falling out of your towel?

    Or you can’t put a fucking pizza on a table?

  94. Art,
    Leave Cyns boobs alone!

  95. the one for the Cami Secret brings back laughs to me

    “Funbag Napkin” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  96. Awwww, thx Chrispy.

    *waits ’til Chris isn’t looking, and looks at Xbrad*

  97. Don’t stick it out if you’re not gonna use it.

  98. Art!
    Stop being a shit!
    Good night fellow babies.
    Pain’s getting out of hand. Gonna go lay down now.
    Have a great Easter evening, all.

    On this day in history, Jesus woke up, and scared the hell out of all the people that thought they had rid themselves of that “Christian Problem” when they crucified Him.

    HE is risen!

  99. Sweet dreams, Chris. Give Anita a hug.

  100. Walking Dead season finale: Damn!

  101. Did the Governor bite it?


    Special NSFW undies.

  103. Althouse is contemptuous and vulgar. (I’ll point it out tomorrow)

    That is all.

  104. Those britches are anatomically ridiculous. Anyone try to poke you through those would hit bone.

  105. One day a guy dies and finds himself in hell. As he is wallowing in despair he has his first meeting with a demon…

    Demon: Why so glum chum?
    Guy: What do you think? I’m in hell.
    Demon: Hell’s not so bad. We actually have a lot of fun down here…you a drinkin’ man?
    Guy: Sure, I love to drink. Love the drinks.
    Demon: Well you’re gonna love Mondays then. On Mondays that’s all we do is drink. Whiskey, tequila, Guinness, wine coolers, diet tab, and fresca…we drink till we throw up and then we drink some more!
    Guy: Gee that sounds great.

    Demon: You a smoker?
    Guy: You better believe it! Love the smoking.
    Demon: Alright! You’re gonna love Tuesdays. We get the finest cigars from all over the world and smoke our lungs out. If you get cancer – no biggie – you’re already dead remember?
    Guy: Wow…that’s…awesome!

    Demon: I bet you like to gamble.
    Guy: Why yes as a matter of fact I do. Love the gambling.
    Demon: Cause Wednesday you can gamble all you want. Craps, Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Slots, whatever… If you go Bankrupt…well you’re dead anyhow.

    Demon: You into drugs?
    Guy: Are you kidding? Love drugs! You don’t mean…
    Demon: That’s right! Thursday is drug day. Help yourself to a great big bowl of crack. or smack. Smoke a doobie the size of a submarine. You can do all the drugs you want and if ya overdose – that’s right – you’re dead – who cares! O.D.!!
    Guy: Yowza! I never realized Hell was such a swingin’ place!!

    Demon: You gay?
    Guy: Uh no.

    Demon: Ooooh (grimaces) you’re really gonna hate Fridays.

  106. There was a time when you let me know
    What’s really going on below
    But now you never derp it to me, do you?
