It was a foggy evening. Fog is no stranger to the East Bay, but I can’t remember when I’ve seen such thick fog meandering around from bay to hills. When Steve walked Berry, they had a good time with it because Berry enjoys anything that involves colder weather.
Check out the photos I took outside the house. Although you lose something in the translation with a photograph, they at least give you an idea of how fog looks in these parts. When you’re in it, it’s a little like pea soup, and sometimes it moves past you in moist clouds.
This was, however, a perfect evening for congee, aka jook, so it was handy that I decarcassed my freezer in the morning to make way for Thanksgiving leftovers. I have a congee recipe here, so I will only remind you again to freeze all your poultry bones — raw and cooked — and when you have enough saved up you can make this delicious, warming rice porridge. I wish I had a photo of Berry in the fog; he looks like such a criminal when it wafts around him.
