Lights out for a bit.

Going dark for a little while here at Tombo’s blog. Regular programming to resume in a week or two.


Y’all be good! ;)

Food… no, really


I can’t believe I actually remembered to take pictures of a meal! So I figured I would share the wealth.


What we have going on in this photo:

- Pork tenderloin medallions which were coated in a nice cinnamon/clove/nutmeg/onion/garlic/salt/pepper spice mixture. Then quick seared in a hot pan with oil.


- Topped in a red current jelly sauce that came into being by deglazing the pork pan with 1 jar of red current jelly, and ~1 cup low-sodium chicken stock, then allowed to thicken.


- Helping to soak up that sauce is a pile of garlic / pine nut couscous, topped with some fresh grated parm cheese. This was just a box of couscous that I added fresh garlic and parm to. Super easy.


- Opposite is a veggie mix of purple onion, baby bella mushrooms, and zucchini, all slow sauteed in a bit of butter with garlic, salt and pepper to taste.


- Some cheap french bread toasted with some butter.


Yeah, it totally tasted better than it looks. Highly recommend this meal to all.

I don’t know why I like this

But I do:

Pic of the day

From last week’s hike into the Sierra Prietta mountains. Looking out over the Copper Basin.

A little nicer lookout point than this one. And although the time of day wasn’t right for stellar photos, it was just right for a relaxing hike.

The stream bed is dry, but I spy a puddle down in the rocks. I climb down and enjoy being disconnected from the world above, if only for a moment:

A little canyon along Perkinsville road, cut by a stream on its to the Verde River.

A quick kiss as I figure out settings. And before I can get another shot off he’s gone, disappeared into the brush:

Christmas Beard – Week 4 update

A full month into the 2009 facial hair experiment. So far it all feels surprisingly natural. :) I suppose that’s a good thing:
