Welcome To a Wet Saturday

I've seen a comment from one of the Flist Folk as to the temperature a couple hours (by road) south-west of us. Heh; I'll see your 58 and Lower you 8. Plus a fairly steady rain, a touch of thunder recently, and it's a very nice day to stay inside.

Which I've not totally done. Went over to the North Wing (as it were) to Studio 318 to continue working on one of the old PC's over there; the hard drive is now completely formatted (two partitions) and some more software installed. Unfortunately (or not, depends on point of view) the Norton schtuph wants to connect to the Internet or it will stop working in 15 days, despite my entering the product code. It's unfortunate because that computer is not connected to the Internet. No phone lines to Studio 318, so it's Off the 'Net. Since I'd like to keep the Norton working I guess I'll haul the durn thing over to the South Wing (as it were) and connect, but not right away.

We're off to some friends this evening for a Solstice party; only about a mile up the road, not a major haul. I'm making a traditional offering for the party, commonly called Cheesy Piggie. Those of you who've been reading a year or more will recognize the concoction, and I'm not going into details just now. Suffice it to say it's actually fairly simple to make, just involved. The recipe starts off with, "First, raise the pig. Second, slaughter the pig and make sausage." Et Cetera.

Other than that, not a lot happening. About to do some more life-straightening things and that's it.

Up until now, we've been relatively dry; nowhere near what you've got but definitely dry for Baja Jorja. However, we are not greedy, and we will share.

We Didn't!
But we got there late because of the rain, in fact we walked through an inch plus standing water to get to/from both houses and vehicle. Since we were late, with dinner already served the conversation never quite got around to "Why are there diced bagels with the Cheesy Piggie?"

Ah, but there's always New Year's!

Re: We Didn't!
It is a fairly simple recipe for a sauce/dip type dish. Follow the link in janetmiles comment above to see the recipe. The two of us decided (during that thread) that Cheesy Piggie could also be called Blasphemous Dip :-)

On the other hand, it's a fairly long process to make it. The recipe starts: First, raise the pig. Second, slaughter the pig and make sausage.

I'm not usually a fan of cheese dips, but I'm quite curious about yours.

Re: We Didn't!
You really can use it as a sauce; we've served it over pasta as well as a dip.

*nod* It sounds like a basis for a really decadent mac & cheese.

You're welcome to deliver it to St. Augustine. We're wearing knitted caps aboard today.
