from the Houston Chronicle:
Only in Texas: Dallas police are on the lookout for a man who could face assault charges for throwing a frozen armadillo at a 57-year-old woman near Dallas.
The woman, My Fox Dallas-Fort Worth reports, met the man in a parking lot to purchase the armadillo carcass, which she planned to eat.
During a fight over its price, he hit her with the animal in the leg and the chest, leaving bruises on her body.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas law prohibits the sale of live armadillos, but a few Texans still go after their meat.
Those people who eat armadillo meat will find that thorough cooking should make the meat noninfectious (of mycobacterial leprosy). However, the greatest hazard of being infected (if any) may be encountered during cleaning and dressing of the animals.
Eating armadillos is not widespread in Texas today, although it has been popular among south-of-the-border residents for more than a hundred years. Many Texans, especially during the depression years of the 1930s, dined on the “Hoover Hog,” referring to the armadillo as “poor man’s pork.”

Aah, hitting any of my neighbors with a frozen armadillo, almost a wet dream.

A large potato cannon and a frozen armadillo.

Words I would never have thought to put together, but it all makes perfect sense now.

For some reason, after reading this I started to picture Granny Clampett in my mind.

"Oh, I'm sorry, did you have claims on this first?!"; as she starts to shovel up some roadkill.

Peace,

Dave

Poi doesn't look too bad to me.

Funnily enough watched an Australian cooking show while in China and saw a cake made with taro-looked truely awful and thanks to the internet you can see it here:

Steamed Taro Cake - Recipes - Poh's Kitchen

Sorry, but anything with "cake" in the tittle and served as shown would make me think "sweet" not savory!

The wasabi icecream and taro coated duck did look good though!

My trip to Austin to visit SY spilled over into the culinary regime. It’s fall and the CSA starts to deliver things like elephant kale that are not necessarily crowd pleasers. This dish was way better than it should have been. In fact the leftovers disappeared before I got home.
Blanch enough kale to make about 4 cups drained and coarsely chopped, make sure it stays nice and bright green. In the same water blanch about 2/3 that amount of carrots cubed down to about ¼ inch and a whole head of garlic until just tender. Take about 3 tbs of butter and a good tbs of Madras Curry (from Savory Spices in Austin) and the garlic squeezed out of its skin and mashed , sauté it up in a non-stick pan until the flavors are developed. Add the kale and carrots back and heat through. Finish with some finely ground million year old Himalayan salt.

Forgive the horrible photo.

You can keep all the "kol" vegetables and their derivatives "green" with a bit of bicarb in the water -- raising the pH -- don't you remember using red cabbage water as a pH indicator?

I usually don't do that stuff, the more work standing over the pot and the more pots you dirty the better the food tastes . The acid balance is a good point, I might add lemon juice to some of these dishes but not here, the kale has some natural acidity balanced by the carrots sweetness.
