Here on the frontier, There are falling leaves, Although my neighbors are all barbarions…And you? You are a thousand miles away. There are always two cups on my table.

For tonite’s dinner we are having moroccan chicken over basmati rice and steamed broccoli.

Good!

Bart walks in, you know Bart, he is my 23 year old son who works the biofuel business with his dad.

“Can’t we have some meat?”

I hate to dissapoint my boys, especially one like him who works so hard.

12-16 hour shifts driving one of the oil trucks through Maryland and DC sucking oil from restaurants during their dead night hours.

It’s dirty work and the boy works as hard as his dad does.

“Course there will be meat.”

I have a chuck steak, only about a pound in the freeze but I know a dish everyone loves.
