Culinarians, Leg Braces, Hot Sauce and Where’s Waldo.

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers’s Campfire here!

The days have been packed from sunrise to sunset. I will give you the highlights. It was recently my Beloved’s birthday and we opted to celebrate with all you can eat Chinese cuisine. My daughter and the Twelve-year Veteran of life were in attendance at the get together.

Ever-increasingly a lover of photography, I took some shots of my favorite dishes. I am now left scratching my head as it looks like a Southern American buffet. Who can tell. It was excellent eating and I think I consumed about 40 pieces of shrimp.

As those of you who are are regular readers know, one of my ducks, who we appropriately named ölümün ağzından is still on the mend from a dog attack. After additional internet research and the combined creativity of the Brothers’ Campfire Team, we improved her leg brace.

Her thigh is thoroughly mangled and in need of support.

Additional trimming was made to the foot pad.

Meanwhile, my neighbor had other things going on. He grows peppers indoors that will burn your mouth just by looking at them. He offered a trade of his finest for some duck eggs so we manufactured some hot sauce.

It wasn’t traditional. It contained peppers of unknown variety, three kinds of vinegar, lemon juice, radish pods, arugula pods, spicy oregano, garlic, and onion. A full flavoured sauce is much better than spicy for spicy’s sake to me.

The duck eggs are popular. Recently, I provided them our local French cuisine culinarian, Rebecca Sherrow and they will be featured soon. Here is a sampleof her work.

Packed days indeed. We were invited to a neighbor’s house and did not wish to show up empty handed so my daughter cooked a little something for the event.

I was greatful for the hospitality of my nieghbor and we ate well and had some of the most amazing conversation ever.

I was thankful for the full belly as it would sustain me in what was to follow; War games and Where’s Waldo.

Yesterday was especially long and after wrapping up, we moved on to visit the great Herb Thiel for ice cream and Fourth of July fireworks.

What will today bring? Who knows? The days run together with excellence!
