Lui Family Diet – Too much pork, not enough tomatoes

Eating and cooking are my passions, so you’ll find that I will be blogging about that frequently…

We had a bunch of pulled pork leftovers and have been eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the past week. Suffice it to say that we were starting to gag at the thought of having to eat another pulled pork sandwich. So, me being the innovative wife thought…surely others have encountered this problem and may have a solution for us, so I started surfing the net for ideas and that was when I came across the idea of pulled pork ice cream. The author assured his audience that he was not kidding and that it (pulled pork ice cream) was truly a delicious treat. I’ve tried some interesting recipes in my lifetime, but none so radical as this. I mean I had to do a double take to make sure I was reading this correctly…and that was when I realized…no, we are not that desperate yet…what’s another pulled pork sandwich?

On a completely different note..let’s talk about tomatoes. I’ve got 3 healthy, robust (at least I think they are) heirloom tomato plants in my garden and have been anticipating a good harvest. The plants have many blossoms on them, however, much to my shagrin, the blossoms aren’t turning into fruit. Does anyone out there have any idea why this is happening and what I need to do to correct this problem? Can tomatoes be grown in Georgetown, Texas?

There is no evidence of insect infestation, since I was told that I would see holes on my leaves were that the case. I don’t have squirrels in my yard since I don’t have any trees and there aren’t very many birds nearby either. For all I know, there could be tomato aliens visiting in the evenings and snapping off my blossoms so that they don’t have a chance to fruit. If I ever meet these tomato aliens, they better be scared. Have you had any success growing tomatoes in this area? What are some tips you can offer?

Editor’s Note: Balancing the proper supply of pork and tomatoes in a family’s diet can be tricky business, but not as tricky as understanding supply and demand in real estate. If you need a competent real estate agent who can help you through the in’s and out’s of the Georgetown Texas Real Estate market, make sure you call your favorite HOMEboy. If you’re lucky, I might even make you a pulled pork sandwich.
