This story starts out on the morning of a crisp wintery day…..
A2242B31-5659-4823-AEFA-C871AA61F4A8.jpeg

Two chucks sat on the counter peering out at the sun and snow, just mentally preparing for the trek before them…..

After what appeared to be years (in reality only a few minutes) they quickly got dressed (Kinders and CS’ Asian Rub) and prepared for the carriage ride that was waiting for them…..

They knew at one point their journey would have two paths to choose, so each prepared their gear to build on their strengths…..one chose rich and bold and the other exotic and cultured….

As soon as they were packed they loaded up in the awaiting carriage to start their determined quest…..

Once seated the carriage pulled out and went down the road……

After almost a 1/2 days journey they paused the ride to just enjoy the view and clear their minds of any worry…..

Refreshed from the view, both did a quick progress check and they put on a heat shield to get their minds back in task….

After they rode quietly in the carriage for most of the afternoon neither said a word because they knew they would have to soon separate because their individual paths were near…… and then without a word one of then stepped off the carriage to go down a different path…..

As he watched the carriage go out of site he settled down with his gear to await for night fall to hide his tracks……

As he stowed his gear he spread out to and warmed up some tea……

After his tea was ready, he bundled up because the air was colder than the bright sun…. He knew he would journey in darkness for at least a day before he would come out of the shadows……

The remaining chuck was anxious for his path to start and kept a close eye to the road a head……to make sure he didn’t miss it…..at last his path came in view…….

The chuck stepped off the carriage and knew his time was very close, so he took a moment to reflect on the day……

His thoughts quickly came back to the present because it was getting colder and night would soon be here….
D413427F-38CD-49C2-BE80-A683CBDA8108.jpeg


He quickly spread out and started preparing for his purpose…..

He started prepping his side to make sure they would be ready for the battle…..
7C4A8B23-EB7C-4E92-8776-227052C7F8D9.jpeg

Once cleaned and loaded they were set a side to wait for the right moment…..
4F1F610B-897D-41B5-A2E4-E1A34162B7DE.jpeg

The moment for action finally arrived and his sides went into action……
263A1687-211F-4846-B3B5-05F729A74F3F.jpeg

The action was searing hot and required a keen eye to avoid disaster of the ice cold darkness

The sides had to move quick and focused as they had planned the whole day for….

The sides were true and held off the cold and were victorious in first battle……

The backup sides were called on to help fight off the initial wave……
2C8C1B55-834D-43C2-A831-6CDFD53A8009.jpeg

They knew just what to do and held off the wave with ease…….

However, as they cheered they realized that what they held off were only the scouts of the main attacking body…….

This was the moment the chuck had been preparing for….. with his rich and bold company he came out in full force to fulfill his destiny!!!!!

As the chuck and his company fell he knew he had won cause his foe became one with him…..

Absolutely amazing!! I don't know what I liked better, the food or the story. That was a first-class thread and one of the most enjoyable I've ever read here. Extremely well done and congrats on a truly stellar meal.

Now that's the way to cook and tell the tale of the travel from the beginning of the journey to the end...

Chapter 2: The Sunrise of the Twin Suns…..

In the dark of night some local underground sides realized that the Chuck still had more to give and they huddled together to make an offering to the foe to satisfy his hunger to consume…..

The first order of business was to build a strong base to carry the load….
84296A6F-0ED3-42F9-86D2-D44A27B11397.jpeg

Next the chuck was armed with some slivered silver swords and they took their place on the offering foundation…..
A563139F-CCED-4D09-B453-1EADEC5E8E93.jpeg

Then the offering was clad with ivory armor to conceal the armed chuck below…..
2C368FAF-0E84-4CAC-843B-657CDD697B9B.jpeg

Now with all the underground sides all stacked up they were placed out in the open to be revealed as the twin suns rise to shine on the display……
16871A45-10C0-40FA-B283-BD57F45FBCD4.jpeg

As the sunlight broke on the horizon the foe was intrigued and engaged with satisfaction that he found himself content and his desire to consumed satisfied…..

For now it seems like there was going to be peace in the land………..

Chapter 3: The Strike of the Second Chuck…..

As the morning sunlight passed and it became mid day it seemed the moment of the second chuck was almost at hand….. while the second chuck was slumbering he was crafting a web of pure flavor to entangle the foe in an exotic cultural experience…….
571A9665-E833-499C-80EF-620C386B9D30.jpeg


The second chucks instinct and web of flavor was the final blow the foe could handle…… he fell into a comatose trance of satisfaction with the desire to consume fulfilled…….
AD506A59-5AD5-45B8-BA19-42078AEA8237.jpeg

As the sun goes down the tale of the Two Chucks will live on and all in the land has made a pact to celebrate and re-live the experience on a regular interval!!!! The end……

Thank you all for indulging my wondering mind……
