Yes!Chef! loves pork.  When I first met him, I couldn’t understand why he liked it so much.  It was always dry and tasteless every time I had it.  So, I would frequently turn up my nose to his suggestion of pork for dinner because of my pork bias.  Yes, I was a hater…a pork hater.

Easy Shrimp Rolls

A family that we know very well visited the East Coast this last month.  They took lots of pictures of their trip which we enjoyed seeing on Facebook.  They did make a stop in Maine and began showing photos of lobster rolls.  I couldn’t get my mind off lobster rolls (especially after seeing so many pictures), so I thought we should make them with our own spin.

“Fry” Day Pickles and Snow Days

Fried Pickles with Yogurt, Dill, Sriracha dipping sauce

Well, another couple of weeks have gone by and where  was I?  Oh yes!  I was snowed in with a friend of mine for a couple of days, so no pics of Yes!Chef! making tasty things last week.

Every year a group of 7 ladies that I have known for years visit me at my cabin in Tahoe for a weekend retreat.  We have been doing this for the last 9 years.  Last year they came in the beginning of October.  Some years they have visited in July or August.  This year, they waited until almost the last weekend in October.  The weather in Tahoe is always iffy in October and true to form, the first few days were balmy and beautiful.  It chilled down in the evening, but daytime was wonderful.

Porky:Ok
Buckwheat: I’ve got two pickles. I’ve got two pickles. I’ve got two pickles today .. hey hey.. !”

I love pickles!

But they can’t just be any old pickle.  I do not like bread and butter pickles and I do not like wimpy pickles. I like crisp, crunchy, dilly pickles.  I also like sweet pickles on occasion, but dills are my favorite because they make my mouth water.

I might just be a pickle connoisseur.
