      That rooster photo makes me happy, too! I knew it was a photo opportunity as soon as I saw it, haha. That glazed twist…. oh man. I daydream about it.

  2. Very nice.

    Those roosters can also be seen all over the US. There is one in Chinatown in LA, fittingly over a poultry shop (that smells). There are a couple of them also in that hipster food court in Anaheim, the Packing District. I took a photo with one of those roosters at some roadside farm in Arroyo Vista last summer (posts still have to be written, I lag, I know).

    Like those lumberjack/muffler men statues, the giant chickens are a neat roadside attraction or something cool to spot in random towns.

    Here is a cool link:

      Hi CC – Oh man, I didn’t know the roosters were a “thing” all over the country! That’s so cool! I’ve heard/seen the lumberjack and muffler men but not the giant chickens (or at least, I never noticed them before). Thanks for the link, we’ll have to be on the lookout for more!

  3. ooh i still need to try making polenta! also, this makes me think that you had donuts early for national donut day haha. (though i only found out about donuts the day of)

    and uh for the junkyard… one man’s trash is another man’s treasure… ‘poop’ just might be one of those treasures!

      Polenta is really easy to make and it’s easy to flavor up – I really like it with cheese, herbs, and a little butter. 🙂 I forgot about National Donut Day until the week of, haha. I just like trying donuts! The swap meet/junkyard was a very interesting place. I bet there are some gems hidden in there somewhere. The “poop” just made me laugh!
