How about if I take pictures of the drawings...?  Taking pix either way.

Just finished my final deployment with the British Army reserves after being at Her Majesty's service for 20 years. It's going to take me until after Christmas to dry out.

It's also one of those strange moments in life where a previously open door, closes behind you forever. The upside being that my weekends going forward are now much more open, which means I'll finally be able to pick up my brushes and start going through those unopened Kickstarters from years back

Theme should be pretty obvious....::D:

So, obviously, Star Wars.

Star Wars has always been a big part of my life. I grew up right about in the perfect time for the original trilogy.  Some of my favorite toys (which are probably still in the attic at home....I should get those) were Star Wars.

And, despite opinions on the latest trilogy, right now is a pretty sweet time to be a Star Wars fan.  The Mandalorian is an actual live action Star Wars show, something we never thought would happen as kids.

Beyond that I just finished watching 7 seasons of The Clone Wars cartoon, and I'm now on season 2 of Rebels. (I'm told Disney+ has non Star Wars shows, but haven't bothered looking :poke:

There are currently THREE active Star Wars miniatures games from FFG (Armada, X-Wing and Legion) depending on which scale you want to play. I play Legion and spent yesterday finishing up General Veers and an Imperial Commander. Working on an 800 point army in Tabletop Admiral today, for my game on Tuesday.  8 activations is pretty light. Hmmm.

And I'm currently working on a Legion scale 3-D print of a "terrain" piece, that some might be able to figure out from the two pieces printed so far.....

Theme: COOK SOMETHING NEW!

 

Specifically, picnic pork shoulder, in the oven, with crackling skin.

 

The pork shoulder in question (~4,5kg or almost 10lbs):

The basic spice rub (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder).1311331759_Picnicpork_03.thumb.jpg.4c657976a4ec82ade540a8ae13d38967.jpg

 

Rinsed and dried:

Let us not forget some quartered onions on the bottom of the pan (support grill is visible):

Spice rub on bottom side:

Spice rub on top (skin) side:

989281226_Picnicpork_07.jpg.690db3e583684bc311678c0236541e25.jpg

 

Bit of leftover wine and water to cover the bottom onions.

 

Popped in the oven (set at 250F):

11 hours later! Seriously, this took far longer than expected. After 9 hours, I raised the temperature to 275F as the internal temperature just seem to stall. Added a bit of water too.

1818691963_Picnicpork_09.jpg.0cc10c8caf05c620666e8a26e64311a5.jpg

 

After setting aside for a few minutes, back in the oven at broil/500F for the skin crackling.

Huzzah!

 

It may have been near midnight, but I got very satisfying results. Solid crust, crunchy and salty like evil bacon. Pork itself was quite tender and not dry. Onions were darkened and nicely caramelized.

 

After letting it cool, popped it in the fridge and went to bed.
