Quality Makes All The Difference In The World

I could have swore that the post with the Crawfish Etouffe dish would have gotten a lot more comments than it did. I guess I will just stay with the old tried and true Texas BBQ then.  
For the past three days the eggs we put in my Dads high dollar incubator have been hatching out. I think they are pretty much done now and the final count is right at a 78% hatch rate. That is a whole lot better than the 10% to 30% hatches we have been getting with the little foam incubators.

There are three incubators in the bedroom running right now and we have the first hatch with the new fan attachments coming off on the 25th. We will see if the added fans do any good to increase the hatch rate. Fingers are crossed. 

Tonight was crock pot night. Pork roast seasoned with rib rub on a bed of potatoes, carrots, onions, bell peppers and mushrooms cooking all day long.  


  1. MDR,

    Great hatch rate on the chicks! We were not ignoring your last post about the Crawfish, most of us were just jealous reading the details and seeing the photo. You can cook for me anytime! Maybe you should try a "followers" recipe contest. Have them submit to you, you give them a whirl (tell them to keep the expense down, (who can afford lobster and filet mignon these days anyway), and give a shout out to the best one, etc. Might be interesting to see what they come back with. have a good one, always love reading your blog.

  2. Thanks for the comment IZZY. I was just thinking it was a little to outside the box for some.
    I like idea of the recipe contest. I think I might do that when I get a few more followers.
    Have a great week.
