Skunk cabbage flowers

Skunk cabbage pods

Symplocarpus foetidus, also known as eastern skunk cabbage, swamp cabbage, clumpfoot cabbage, meadow cabbage, foetid pothos, or polecat weed. In the woods near Legion Pool in the Seymour Land Trust in Seymour, CT.

Looking like pitcher plants, the flowers emerge before the main plant in the spring, and produce a foul odor to attract pollinators. I am definitely not a pollinator.

Boneless braised short ribs

"Incredibly tender boneless beef ribs, mashed potato, garlicky spinach and apples, laced with burgundy demi glace".

Boozy Hot Chocolate

I forget the liquor it was originally served with, but I supplemented it with Woodford Reserve Bourbon.

That guy in the back is just someone I work with. Ignore him.

The Grinch"s Dog

I don't know what my brother Shawn is smiling about. Someone is trying to steal his Christmas dinner.

My Christmas dinner.
