I like chicken. I like octopus. I might even make a dish that combines the two. This is not that dish.

Hallelujah!
In throwing out the gun conviction of a man in Boston, the state SJC declared that black men who try to avoid an encounter with police by fleeing shouldn't be deemed suspicious.

Disgusting and unsurprising.
 
The national Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed Trump. I did not think I could become any more disappointed with American police, but they have found another way.

It is clear that they see Trump as deeply representative of their priorities and likely to stand behind them no matter what. Unfortunately, this makes clear what their priorities are. Police unions have decided that their first and foremost principle is to protect individual officers from any form of accountability, up to and including for rape and murder; they apparently have also decided to include white supremacy in their formal charter.

If you combine this with other police union statements in the past few days - like the Miami union's saying that they will not provide police protection to the Dolphins football team until and unless the team forces its members to stand during the anthem - it has become painfully clear that police unions across the country have converged on a belief that any opposition to them, any suggestion that their power should be less than unlimited, is "anti-cop."

I have always been suspicious of the notion of public sector unions, but police unions have gone so far beyond any prospective worst case of how such a union could behave that their very existence has become unconscionable. The armed forces of a state must always be subordinate to civilian oversight - and a police union which can demand exemption from this, and threaten violence or public disorder (as Miami's just did, and as many others have) if it is not granted, is an enemy of democracy itself.

Anniversary Dinner
Apple tart

This is the first tart I've ever made. Like the lamb shanks and garlic mashed potatoes, this was first tasted in Ireland. It's from Ard Bia at Nimmo's, a little restaurant in the city of Galway (http://www.ardbia.com/). From my trip journal:

It was the best apple pie either of us (yes, I did have to give it a taste) has had. It was baked in a large tart pan. The crust was sugared and crisp with a lemon crème fraiche on top. The filling was mostly semi-tart granny smith, peel on, included cloves and sliced almonds and was not overly sweet like American apple pie. I'm going to have to try to match it at some point.

I tried to get the recipe from the restaurant a couple years ago, but they said their chef had moved on. So I've taken a basic apple tart recipe, subbed in granny smiths, peel on, added whole cloves that I simmered for awhile in butter, and almond slices, used only one of the five listed tablespoons of filling/crust sugar, subtracted the sugary glaze, added a dough cross (I didn't have enough dough to add more strips), gave it a powdered sugar dusting before plating, and topped it with homemade creme fraiche with lemon juice.

Verdict - By all accounts, Allison's being the most important by far, it was yummy. I know it wasn't as good as Ard Bia's, but I'll call it a win.

The show I feel they missed was The Carol Burnett Show. Sketch comedy at its very best, better than Your Show of Shows.

Achiote Frittatas

Repurposed achiote sauce made both chicken and andouille sausage frittatas a delicious change from the everyday edition.

Security Researcher Levies Death Sentence

It's not like he intended to have one or more North Korean sysadmins murdered, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's the end result. At least he'll never know, so he'll be able to sleep at night.
North Korea’s internet is really tiny.

The garlic mashed potatoes and remaining sauce from the lamb shanks worked well with some seared chicken breast and green beans with goat cheese.

Apple Tart
In progress

I didn't take a whole lot of pics of this one because I was too busy not knowing what I was doing. The basic apple tart recipe I was modifying, in an attempt to emulate Ard Bia at Nimmo's version, required two pounds of apples. Once I was ready to load up the crust, I only used about 2/3rds of the slices. I also only used one of the five listed tablespoons of sugar, and didn't include the glaze that featured another 1/2 cup of sugar. I added whole cloves and sliced almonds, powdered sugar, and a homemade creme fraiche with lemon juice. Yum, if not as good as the source tart.

We had a surprise wedding on the beach at St. George Island with Lacie as officiant. She was fantastic! We worked together to come up with rain or shine plans, and when I called a minor audible to handle a slight change in the attendee gathering, she adapted without blinking. Our small gathering of friends and family were completely surprised, and Lacie gave us the perfect ceremony. We honestly couldn't have hoped for a better outcome. Thanks so much, Lacie!
