    wife said i needed to eat more vegetables.
    so i figure Jalapeño and Green Onions fit that description.

    put some pepper jack cheese on them to cover the dairy product as well.

    New Year's Dinner. Everything but the noodles (and the wine) = home made.

    Since this thread is also about drink, I'm curious about @ORD_Buckeye 's Absinthe bender. I've always wanted to try it. I've seen it in a liqueur store or two. Is there a particular brand that I should try (or avoid)? What makes it different than any other decent quality booze?

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Absinthe is made with wormwood oil, which was deemed to be a hallucinogenic back in the day. I don't think that's true. They do say that it pretty much fueled the French Impressionist period in art though.

    If you've ever had Pernod, you've had Absinthe without the wormwood oil. It has an herbal/anise taste and is usually over 100 proof. True absinthe became legal again about ten years ago. Pernod makes a bottling from their original recipe. Make sure it's says ABSINTHE on the label and isn't just the regular Pernod. My favorite is Kubler which is swiss and is traditionally white instead of green. Stay away from any that are made by US craft distillers and stick with either the French or Swiss stuff. It's not terribly cheap: 50 to 80 clams for a bottle.

    Proper way to drink it is diluted with water and sugar.

    I haven't had a lot of absinthe, but I also liked the Kubler the best of those that I have tried. I feel validated now.

    about to get started on a jambalaya.

    using shrimp, crabmeat (just finished peeling the leftovers from the crab boil last night), and green-onion sausage (also leftover from the boil last night).

    just haven't decided what i'm drinking while cooking this evening.

    I had one of these. Any day after the Blue Jackets score 2 or more goals you can get a pizza at 1/2 price by ordering online and using the promotion code JACKETS50. I got a Hawaiian Pizza. It was sort of a barbecue chicken pizza with pineapple. It was pretty good; however, I still like Donatos Hawaiian pizza better. And no, I don't think Peyton made mine.....:lol:

    first crawfish boil of the season.

    just the wife and kids this time (gotta get a practice round in before inviting half the town).

    nothing like a cold beer, the blues pouring through the speakers, and smelling the seasonings.
