Picnicking Birds

A bluebird is wondering what the hell am I doing here.

Mrs J was tired of the starlings emptying the feeder so she just stopped putting them out.

Instead, she waited until the starling left and then made piles atop the stump and picnic table that the songbirds could finish before they noticed.

Steak Dinner

The mashed potatoes and gravy are leftover from the short rib dinner we enjoyed the other day. We are still eating from the ridiculously cheap rack of prime ribs we bought a year ago and froze in seal a meal vacuum bags. I was able to go straight from the freezer to the sous vide setup with the steaks that we cut from that rack. We have plenty of freezer space even without the old fridge/freezer we keep in the garage. (When it gets cold outside the freezer will not work reliably.)
