Kanawha River Blog*

I snapped this photo a while back on the bank of the Kanawha. Not shabby for a crappy cellphone cam:

*Apologies to Jim for riffing on the title of his excellent Ohio River Blog.

A song that's suddenly relevant again

Public Enemy's "By the time I get to Arizona"

Well, sort of. Either way, still a great rap song from before Autotune and words I'd slap my sons for saying when they are teens.

Leftover pasta + ramps = WIN

After frying up some ramps in my usual blend of olive oil and bacon grease, I noticed a nice ramptastic film of flavor stuck to my skillet. In order to not waste the essence of the gods, I deglazed the pan with some more olive oil and tossed in some leftover pasta. After browning the noodles ever so slightly, I topped them with some of the ramps, a bit of kosher salt, and some Parmesan cheese.

Elegant but Appalachian. Kind of like that French war bride who worked in the shoe store in my hometown when I was a kid.

Cooked a mess o' ramps

Even the porch reeks.
