Tonight is pork cannon balls grilled over a kiawe wood fire, rosemary potatoes,  an avacado/tomato/Maui sweet onion/Japanese cucumber salad, and homemade bread rolls.  Homemade haupia ice cream for desert.

Black Friday night, turkey soup! 
The turkey carcass goes into the stockpot at breakfast time for the long simmer.  By dinner time it is transformed into turkey soup.  My favorite T-Day left-over recipe!

I have a game running on Facebook right now, I'll extend it here. Free hugs to the first person who responds with the correct name of this delectable dish!

Damn, free hug for Cap. Actually ham and chicken pot pie. Post-thanksgiving tradition in my family - Leftover ham gets made into pot pie.

Just like Grandma used to make.

Looks like chicken soup with Emeril style pasta rags (rolled but not cut pasta).

Emeril should credit his sources.

Im not a big fan of Emeril. In fact I could cook circles around that guy, even in a diner rush I bet.
Ive been to a couple of his restaurants. Its OK, just kinda like scratching an itch that isnt there.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

It's always hard to tell from the shows. Something might look great, but taste like crap or vice versa.

Mostly I just don't like his personality... To me it seems like he acts as if he invented Cajun.

If you met him in person you'd think differently.

Hell, if I met Brock Lesnar in person I'd probably think he was a nice guy. I'm just saying that when you're a celebrity, your personality is a product. And I ain't buying his.

Emeril should credit his sources.

If say, he was quoting Ayn Rand?

"The person who craves a moral blank check of that kind, has dishonest intentions, whether he admits it to himself or not."

Ooh, snap! It took me a second to get that one!  ;D

Point, set match, my friend. Well played.

I'm re-reading Atlas Shrugged and recognized the quote in your signature.  It is part of an exchange between Francisco d' Anconia and Hank Reardon.

But, you missed your chance to point out my uncredited Tom Petty quote...

My wits aren't quite as keen as I like to think they are.
