Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

Kentucky Clay really hits home

Just listened to author Katherine Bateman on Bob Edwards' show re: her new book Kentucky Clay.

Hearing her stories, and listening to her accounts of family doings through the years sounds a great deal like the Sullivan history in Kentucky. She goes back 11 generations in the book, detailing the Clays and the Cecils through early American history.

Especially amusing was the "whip and a gun" story of the matriarchs of two clans enforcing fidelity w/ strong language and the threat of violence -- all while wearing their gloves and comporting themselves as the ladies they were.

I am planning a comfy-chair-by-the-fire-bourbon-in-hand literary adventure when the book arrives later this week.
