Adventures in cooking
A few weeks ago, I bought a bottle of mole concentrate at World Harvest Foods, a nifty international food store in Champaign. I put together something with chicken and zucchini that wasn't quite as successful as I'd hoped, but I still had a lot of it left, and I tried another experiment today, drawing inspiration from the fact that Granny Smith apples were on sale at the grocery store last night and that there was some pork that was cheap enough I was willing to buy it. (Thanks to WILL's wasting a huge amount of airtime covering the commodity markets, I'm well aware of the fact that pork prices at the farm level are relatively low now, while beef prices are sky high. So why is it that pork is so doggone expensive in the store?)

I pronounce the experiment a moderate success -- not the best thing I ever made, but pretty tasty.  I'm pleased.

I took my camera to Homer Lake today
I was feeling logy this afternoon, and it was looking like it might rain, so I didn't get out until late in the afternoon, but I did manage to get my fat butt out of the house and spent some time at Homer Lake, taking pictures mostly of birds.
