Coriolis Effect

Thinking deep thoughts once again...
 
The other night I was looking at Leo's ass (hey, it was that or Angel's baseball) and observing the little spirals of fur on each of his butt cheeks.  They look like tiny little butt-fur hurricanes.
 
The question occurred to me; if I take Leo to the southern hemisphere, will his butt hair spiral in the opposite direction?  Calls for study.  I think I should apply for a grant.
 





Yellow Gazpacho?

Just because I'm weird...
 
We have had a tomato plant sprouting little yellow pear tomatoes like there's no tomorrow.  Running out of things to do with them, Denise decided to cook a bunch up one weekend afternoon.  I ran them through the food mill to separate out the skins and what not, leaving a nice yellow tomato juice/sauce.  Ended up canning about a pint and a half of sauce.  Tonight I finally decided it was time to do something with it.
 
 
So, into the sauce I added...
  • One Red Bell Pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 Hot House Cucumber, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 Medium Jalapenos, seeds and veins removed, very finely diced
  • Small Red Onion, finely diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, finely minced
  • Kosher Salt
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp (or so) Picante Pepper Olive Oil from the Temecula Olive Oil Company
  • 1 Tbsp (or so) White Vinegar
Served with a little toasted sourdough and a glass of wine.  Pretty tasty.
