I wasn't much of a scifi geek in school. I mean, I had a subscription to OMNI magazine, and talked about all the movies and tv shows back then, but I was always a practical type. "How could I leverage that to help me now?" Well, John Carter of Mars notwithstanding, everything else was basically neglected.
Later on, a friend loaned me Armor by John Steakly and I found Starman Jones on my own. There is a part in Starman Jones where he explains to his love interest that space is like a folded handkerchief. If you follow it across it's length it takes years to go from A to B. But since A and B are almost touching because of the fold in space, you just punch up to light speed for an instant at A and you pop out at B. Very interesting concept.
I last posted 3 weeks ago, and BANG! here it is 19 Sept 2021. The ensuing days passed so quickly.... almost like they didn't exist. This is the weirdest headspace I've ever encountered.
I made a few changes to the recipe though. I had 9 pounds of pork roast, so I tripled everything.
I always try and sear the roast before I cook it. That brings out some really good flavor. Then I put it fat side up and sliced into it about an inch in a few places.
No ground cumin, so I took the cumin seeds (cominos) and placed them in the mortar and pestle (molcajete) with some red pepper flakes. Ground them down to dust. A little warm water to make slurry and sloshed it on the roast. No limes, so I used lemon juice and plain old cider vinegar substituted for the fancy stuff.
Slow cook for 8 hours, then warmed overnight. It's falling apart and nicely spicy. Probably gonna make some rice for it this afternoon. And I have food to freeze for several days of yum.
