And the big snow storm is not going to arrive on the east coast until Sunday. If you need supplies, you better go today, because once this storm develops, the vultures are going to start picking the bones for what remains.

Maybe it’s a local supply chain issue. We still do our weekly shopping and the shelves were adequately stocked with everything we needed. They were out of Bok Choy but found it at another store close by.

???.........wtf is "Bok Choy"? ........uhhhh, nevamind.

Anyway, Nashville got SLAMMED with 6 inches of snow last Thursday that lingered on into Friday and Saturday.  Mrs. Strike went shopping for staples on Sunday, and said shelves were bare.  Local reporting suggests its a combination of mofos raiding the stores in conjunction with the approaching storm, and, the on-going supply chain problem.

If Joe, Kamala and the rest of the Dem leadership don't get this sorted out in the next few months, the Dems are gonna get SMOKED in the upcoming midterms.  Hell, it might already be too late.  :shrug:

Biden is going to get blamed regardless of the reasons. Presidents get blamed when the market crashes, recession, inflation that occurs after every economic down turn and so on. Now they are blaming Biden because the unvaccinated are not vaccinated. Americans make me so sick. We expect our live to be a total utopia, but anyone with a half of a brain know that everything we do comes at a cost. During economic good times,  you are going to have inflation. the remedy to inflation is to raise interest rate, which slows the economy down.

 :lol: Now that you mentioned it '87, a friend sent me a picture of one someone gave her and asked me how to prepare it.  I told her to not feed it after midnight, and to keep it away from water and sunlight.

Alum^^^thanks for the recipe. Had not even HEARD of “bok choy” before your reference. And the recipe to whose link you posted calls for “baby bok choy,” which is the smaller version of this leafy vegetable which is in the cabbage family.

So, again, muchas gracias for exposing a brutha to a recipe which falls outside the standard “negro palette” orbit. I’ll see what, if anything, Mrs. Strike knows about the vegetable and recipe. Will encourage her to prepare same, and will let you know what we both think.

Meanwhile, might you extend your culinary expertise to recommend a vino or two that might best accompany the recipe? Appreciate you bossman.  ;)

The wine varietal of choice is really dependent on the protein consumed as part of said meal, as you already know. For us, we had the baby bok choy as a side with nicely pan sautéed lamb chop in lemon butter, neatly adorned with rosemary sprigs; thus we had an Argentinian Malbec with a slightly forwarded embolden nose with notes of dry, slightly acidic fruits, with a hint of vanilla, oak & earth tones. Not sure if it was the 2018 Catena Appellation or the 2017 El Enemigo - both are outstanding and priced reasonably for EDC (every day consumption) ~$20/bottle.

Strike, IF you eat chinese food, most likely you've had it in one of your dishes and dismissed it as something lettuce/cabbage like.


Snow? Schmo? Ho ho ho!!!  The liquor cabinet STAYS stocked. And my fridge is good too.


AND we are back to working from home SWEET home once again.

:clap:……..Awesome!

Bruh, your recommendation reads like something I would expect to see from a sommelier.  Your choice of vino, and the analysis underlying that choice, is quite impressive. And I mean that sincerely. I have had the Argentinian Malbec and it’s quite good. But would not have instinctively selected it to go with the bok choy recipe. I likely would have selected one of my favorite Chards or Rieslings.

Again, thank you, sir.   ;)

Strike, why you have to go and unleash the Kraken?  :shrug: Make me ashamed to eat my neck bones for dinner.
