There is a reader here who really liked the 1997 movie Starship Troopers.
It was incredibly loosely based on the Heinlein novel we oooolllld people read when we were kids. And when I say loose, I mean loose.
There is now a sequel to this really bad but engaging flick. It’s reallllllly bad. So bad, it’s good. It even ridicules prayer! I feel persecuted. And the women are tougher than the men.
Why are women in flicks now always tougher and better killers than men?
In the meantime I had supper.
Since people were complaining, and since I am within the penumbra of my anniversary, I did a little more.
Pre-Supper, a couple ounces of JWBlack on ice. I would rather have had a Lagavulin 16.
Then, I whipped up some Bearnaise, though I had to use dried Tarragon from the fall. It was still aromatic and inspiring.
Then, I pulled from the oven the pork loin I started a couple days ago and which I marinated in serious peppercorns and ranch dressing.
I made Freedom Fries… crispy.
Roast loin of pork, marinaded in ranch dressing and peppercorns, steamed Brussels sprouts, crispy Freedom Fries, Bearnaise sauce.
With a great S. American Trappiche Bonarda.
This was good, even if I say so myself.
I’ve been eating little more than sandwiches and salad and soup for a while. I lost my interest in cooking. Trying to get it back. Spring helps.
This pork loin, friends, was so good… the Bearnaise was so good… I was tempted to cut it like potato chips and eat the sauce like dip.
