Awesome August 2014 Number Six

On my days off, I like to take the opportunity to cook. This is one of Roger's favorite meals:

Take a sausage and slice it into chunks about  1.5 inches long. Place in an iron skillet over low heat and fry until the casing is crispy, turning from time to time.  Meanwhile, in a separate skillet, preheat with about 2 tablespoons oil, bacon grease, or butter added. Slice into shreds or bite size pieces a head of cabbage and add to the skillet. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, lower heat to medium low, and cover with a lid. Cook until softened and begins to caramelize slightly. 

That is it. Simple, tasty, easy. Onion can be added to the cabbage, but it is delicious either way. The cabbage releases enough water to steam without adding any, and you can cook it to your preference. I add a splash of hot sauce to mine after cooking, and it is great with cornbread. If you want to have a more Asian meal, use a touch of sesame oil, and add a splash of soy sauce rather than the salt and pepper. Eat it with some sauteed chicken, and serve over rice. 

Looking to the sky. What an awesome view. 

Summer Afternoon Sonnet

Dragons are there - pigs and unicorns too
Fairies - sprites - elves - gnomes - magic all around
See all of the animals from the zoo
Up in the sky and clouds all can be found
Look up and watch closely soon you will see 
Not vapors and gas adrift on a breeze
Gifts revealed ease your rush to constantly 
Keep ahead of the crowd and always please
Lie down in the grass or lean back and swing
Optimal viewing postures - ask a child 
An open mind is all you need to bring
Be willing to let imagery run wild
We all live lives of such pressure and stress
Cloudwatching can help untangle that mess

What do you see?
