i may have discovered the key ingredient for a delicious red beans and rice. it’s either the bacon fat or the ham hocks or the pork shoulder. more investigation is needed.
the leftovers will be combined into mini tacos with tonight’s carnitas made in the slow cooker from the remaining pork shoulder i got at the farmer’s market this past weekend.
meanwhile, it’s gloomy and raining, and pickle is back in his spot in the yard.
