Dude, you keeping those?

Calm down Doug, they're basil seeds.  I thought I might strip them
from the stalks on my basil plant outside the back door and see
if they sprout next April.  They still smell pungent and who knows?
Yeah yeah, I know.  Some things never change, thank goodness.

Simple and Good

Grilled boneless pork chops, roasted Yukon Gold potatoes,
Brussels sprouts with butter, and cured olives and oven-dried
tomatoes.  Almost every forkful has all the elements of  the
spread laid out before me.  It's no wonder I'm always the last
to get up from the table.
