Alec and carrot

In crunch we trust

Oh, damn, did that turn out well.. ^_^

I began with two pork loin chops, which I left to sit in some ketjap manis for a few minutes, turning them a couple times. Once imbued with that sweet savoriness, I rubbed a good coating of wasabi around both of them, covering them in a thin film of that wondrous spiciness, and popped them under the grill for about twelve minutes, turning midway through.

Meanwhile, I sliced up several leaves of Savoy cabbage and put those on to boil, along with two quartered artichoke hearts, and six protruberances of asparagus. Once those were just done, I laid the cabbage and artichokes out as a bed for the pork, needing nothing more.

By way of a supplemental sauce, some butter beans in a thick mix of instant vegetable chowder soup, with some sweet smoked paprika and Malaysian hot sauce, plus four chopped sweet pickled thin peppers.

Finally, a little browned French butter, for the asparagus.

Such tender, tangy pork, backed up by the mild piquance of the beans and their sauce.. the cabbage provided a contrast of simplicity, crowned by the sublime, delicate richness of the merest hint of buttery opulence, dancing with the fresh taste of its slender companion.

Happy bunny. ^_^

Parse nip

I'm only vaguely aware of Perl, sad to say, though I'm finally getting around to picking up bits and pieces. So, this script has me a little puzzled. Any Perl guru feel like offering a smidgen of assistance?
