Pig Tail Stew

My husband loves menudo. This is NOT menudo. I didn't have all the ingredients for it. So I came up with this pork creation that he loves just the same. Serve over cilantro lime rice. Garnish it as you please, but we use Mexican green onions, red onions, cilantro, fresh lime juice, and jalapeno.


𐄂1 family pack of pork ribs
𐄂6 large pig tails
𐄂4 small onions
𐄂9 cloves of garlic
𐄂2 c. tomatoes
𐄂3 tbsp. sea salt
𐄂1 tbsp. black pepper
𐄂3 tbsp. cumin
𐄂1 tbsp. crushed red pepper
𐄂2 tbsp. paprika
𐄂1 tsp. garlic powder
𐄂2, 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce
𐄂1, 28 oz. can of whole or diced tomatoes
𐄂1, 25 oz. can of white hominy
𐄂1 gal. water
𐄂red onions
𐄂Mexican green onions

Gotham City Skyline....sort of

Yes, sort of. I didn't recreate an exact replica of Gotham City; just no.  Here is my version of a simple, imperfect city skyline to incorporate into my hubby's 'Bat Cave'.  Paint out the window(s) in use. Do not use ceramic paint. It's too watery. For better coverage, use latex paint. I used the same paint I used for the room walls. Let completely dry. Tape off the building outline. Use your imagination and Google or use Pinterest. Paint inside the outline with contrasting paint. When completely dry, carefully peel off tape. Use tweezers to remove the window tape blocks.  I had some leftover small bat wing logos. I lightly modpodged them onto the sky.

How to Spray-Paint a Leather Chair

Mr. B. wanted this chair from my Gramma sooooo bad. It's a plush, large leather chair she had as a pair in her entrance sitting area. She gave it to him like it was nothing. Hmph, what can I get so easily? Just kidding. She'd give you anything you asked for. I had no idea where this man wanted to put such a huge chair. With the Batcave project in planning stages, a spot was found for it. But how does a brown chair fit into a Batman/ batcave theme? Ah, old faithful spray-paint. Again, this chair was BROWN!  You must work with the paint as it is wet so the wet colors merge. Work in separate areas at one time if you're not quick enough. For instance, if you're too intimidated and find yourself working slow, work with the back first, then another section, and so forth.  I began by spraying the chair with the dominant color black.  While the black paint was still wet and at a distance, I sparingly sprayed the secondary color of the blue.

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na BATMAN!

Everyone has a childhood hero. At some point we've had an idol.  Do you ever grow out of either? Nope. Mr. B. is a perfect example of his childhood hero and grown-up idol..... Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Batman!

With the kids leaving, it now serves its purpose as "The Batcave".   It was a fun project, with much toil and sleepless, hungry nights. Nevertheless, I enjoyed seeing all the pieces come together. I worked from hand-drawn plans with minimal tweaks. This goes back to me always saying planning is important
