The ice melts, the seas rise, we’re torrefied
The warming alarmists are horrified
Coldest winter in years
Yields crocodile tears
Too arrogant and smug to be mortified

My mom always warned me to change out of my good clothes before I went to the schoolyard because my pants torrefy slid into a base.

I’ve got a nice big turkey and a pork loin to do up on the smoke this weekend. I love to cook it low and slow on the hickory smoke, no need to torrefy that yummy stuff, I like it juicy!

I refused to do that as a kid, and still do. I put on one set of clothes for the day, that's it. Only exceptions are when i go clamming or fishing in really muddy spots before I go out with Kelly.

I was brutal on clothes as a kid, so my parents made me wear the Sears toughskins jeans, damn did I really hate those things.

Good one!

It’s also 1.013 bar, which makes you wonder why it couldn’t be exactly 1 bar.

It is 72 and cloudy, with a few drops of rain falling every now and then-

Nancy Pelosi is just so weird
With all that botox and stuff-
Without it she would torrefy
And blow away with just a puff

Or turn into a pillar of salt
Like Lot’s poor curious wife
Has Nancy ever lacked anything
In all of her pampered life?

She married rich, she lives it
And she owns a vinyard, too-
Believes she’s above commoners
And better than me or you...

If you can’t take the heat, don’t torrefy the kitchen.

Last Sunday, my darling husband managed to torrefy the round
beef roast he was supposed to braise.

Breaking up the meat and frying it in unsalted butter went a long
way toward making it edible, though, and we had it for breakfast
for a few days this week.

Oh, and he was distracted by the news online about the Benghazi investigation and forgot to water the “braising” roast.

We enjoy dutch oven braised meats instead. It would have been
all right if Hubby had added the water when he was supposed to.

He is our Sunday dinner cook. I get to cook everything else.

Braised meats are our favorite Sunday dinners. The Dutch oven usually cooks
them perfectly, but this one time, it got torrefied.

I usually make a side dish of mixed vegetables with low-carb rotini, penne, or
broken spaghetti and serve them with Alfredo sauce.

Thank you for the nice grade.
