Comments: Nuts.....

I wait 6 months for a post and this is what I get? A post about your nuts?

Hope you are well....

Some of the best foods are the ones you have to work for. Black walnuts. Lobster.

I remember my mother's approach to eating a lobster, something she learned from her own mother. She would not merely eat a lobster: She would demolish it. Legs, claws, tail, all sucked dry of meat. All that would remain would be a few smoldering flecks of desiccated shell, a wasteland like Atlanta after Sherman's march to the sea.

If you want the most toothsome food, you must be prepared to work for it. Not your style? Then go right ahead and have some Chicken McFucknuggets.

.... sorry about that, Marcus..... and hey, it wasn't just about my nuts..... but my Grandfather's as well...... who writes about their Grandfather's nuts better than I do?...... so, smile and be happy...... and go in peace.......

.... and Steve, I believe that every food has its place...... and while I love working hard and creating a good meal, I also like a chicken nugget once in a while.... I do not begrudge them...... I just put them in their place along with the other pleasures in life...... as the good book says, judge not lest ye be judged......

.... and Steve, I would have LOVED to have shared a lobster with your Ma......she sound amazing.....

My maternal grandmother...Hungarian... would take a beautiful pork roast and spend hours cutting it by hand into 1/4" pieces for her best-in-all-the-world stuffed cabbage. Refused many suggestions to let the butcher grind it coarse.
But I believe the love our grandmothers put in all those dishes was the true secret ingredient.

It's wonderful to see you again.
