So that made sense, didn't it?
I spent all day making sausage. As well as teaching the wife of a co-worker to make sausage. We made Andouille and Chaurice, and then smoked the Andouille all afternoon. Once we pulled the Andouille off the grill, we put on the pork bones from the pork shoulders we'd cut up for the sausage, and those have been smoking until 11 PM.
I got to spend the evening surrounded by friends, eating good food, and having a good time. And other than a few snide comments about MSNBC, we didn't discuss politics at all. We talked sports. Movies. Comedy. Life in general. Theology. Haunted houses. Exorcisms. Kids. Texas vs. Mississippi, especially when it comes to allergies. And of course, food.
It was an awesome night.
I miss those. Having that kind of nigh reminded me of a time when politics didn't consume every aspect of our lives.
By the by, the smoked pork bones will be used to make Hoppin' John, red beans and rice, and various other southern dishes.
If there's one thing that I curse the left for doing, is making everything political. For taking away nights like tonight from everybody.
Everybody needs a night like I had tonight. But now we have to make sure we don't invite any Leftists in order to have that kind of night. So be it. I'm going to enjoy my life on this earth with good people and good food. And good drink. And cigars. And I'll be damned if I bring some Leftist into my house to ruin it. That's where I'm at right now. I want to have a dinner and not talk about the President. I want to have a dinner
