Well I've been in the South jail cell for a few days. When I prepare for myself alone it ain't fancy, it is food. Lotta sammies due to fresh 'maters that I brought. Oven frozen lasagna. Peaches that I brought. Stuff like that. I'm doing chix quarters right now followed by cabbage done in the leftover fat.

Thankfully I'm rolling back North in the morning and can at least cook for two again. That is very different than just feeding me...with me, if I don't want what I have I just ain't hungry enuf yet.

That's a rule to live by. If you don't know what you want, you aren't ready to eat.

Popeye's classic spicy chicken sandwich. They really went heavy on the sriracha in the mayo mix. Very spicy today. Still, wonderfully fulfilling chicken sandwich.

I really need to try one of those. Closest Popeye's is a 30 minute drive.

Lamb hash and leftover sides. Time to use up some veggies tomorrow. Girls want chowder and gumbo to follow.

Now that there's a Publix here in Virginia (I frequented Publix while in Tampa) I picked up some Cuban bread yesterday. I made Cuban sammiches and it was delicious. I'm on a low carb diet (again) but damnit I couldn't resist. I use mustard, swiss cheese, roasted pork with a Cuban spice, glazed ham, genoa salami and sliced pickles. I simmered black beans with red bell pepper, garlic, onion and other spices for three hours. It will happen again soon! For dessert I picked up some Guava cake bars from Publix.

Same Jason. None of the "bakeries" in town carry Cuban bread. No real bakeries here have to drive into DC or elsewhere for that. The Publix I hit yesterday is 25 mins away. I was in the area for work. Fortunately, there is a Publix being built five mins away! A number of raunts locally offer Cubanos but weirdly none are on Cuban bread.

We have lots of Publix stores around here (conveniently located right across the street from Kroger). I only buy a handful of products from them (dairy among them, Kroger dairy products go off well before the code date). My neighborhood Kroger makes their own Cuban bread, but it sells out quickly. Oh, but what a treat when you find it. I marinate my pork for three days in a homemade mojo (including blood oranges, which Kroger also carries). The citrus and the pork go together like red beans and rice. I leave the pickles off because nobody here likes them. They say they hate yellow mustard too, but allow that it wouldn't work without it.
