Yesterday, I completed my blog entry, clicked “publish”, checked the post, and was greeted with this…

I checked the connection, then switched browsers, updated my plug-ins…an hour later, my blog was still down.  And I was feeling…ambivalent.  On the one hand, I was found the prospect of losing the chronicled details of the last 15+ years deeply disappointing; but on the other hand, there was a sense of relief.  15+ years of daily blogging can get a little taxing after a while.  It was a feeling akin to hearing there was a chance twitter could go down permanently.  On the one hand, I would lose a crucial industry and information lifeline.  On the other, I would free up A LOT of free time.

Anyway, the blog was restore and twitter never went away after all.  So here we are again!

Today’s Yes/No…

Spoiler alert: They were delicious.  But very labor intensive.  After the prep and blanching, I brought them to a boil and then simmered them for an hour with sauteed onions, garlic, pepper, salt, chilis, bay leaves, anise, and sake, then chilled them overnight before tossing them in kochujang, mirin, soy sauce, garlic powder, Korean spices, and sugar and finishing them under the broiler for about ten minutes.

A lot of work.

Next time, I may just stick to chicken butts.

  1. Um… cloaca can’t be very tasty. I’ve raised free range chickens & steer, & there are certain bits I refuse to eat because of that. I’ve SEEN things, Joe. 😳
    But I’m glad your chicken feet turned out tasty.

  2. I, for one, am glad you are still blogging. I have been reading daily since 2007. What would I do without you?

  3. Oh, is this related to why the three comments I made on March 3 haven’t appeared? Did they get lost?

  4. Did you follow JeffW‘s example and eat the toenails? 😬
    Your dish does look tasty.

    We do appreciate your blog. However, it is a lot of work for you to produce daily. If you want to cut back, we would understand (at least, I would).

    Any news on Cricket?

    Happy Suji Sunday!

  5. I agree whti tam dixon. If you continue, the best for us . If not…the best for you?
