mmmm, I love limp bacon! Nice job LS.

Action shot of the corn grilling. I blackened the poblano on the grill, too, then put it in a bag to steam.

Steak (striploin), roasted potatoes, zucchini, peppers, onion and peapods sautéed in my new wok! And we are recovering right now before we have dessert. My french exchange student is making us crepes. OMG...so good. I'll take a picture of that.

I like medium bacon that bends. I hate bacon that shatters when you touch it.

When you grill your corn you just soak it for awhile and grill it silks and all right?

Crumbly bacon is for salads

I just tear off the tuft of silk and have at it. No soaking, though I used to soak it when I threw it right in the coals when camping. I don't find soaking is necessary when grilling on a grate. And the silk comes off practically on it's own when shucking after it has cooked.

We went out for my early birthday dinner tonight. Longhorn Steakhouse. I had NY strip steak, 1/8 of a small baked potato (with butter and sour cream, my girl got the rest of the tater since she opted for salad and steamed broccoli with her meal), asparagus (with butter and grated parmesan cheese), tossed salad with blue cheese dressing, 1 slice bread (with butter) and unsweetened ice tea with a bit of pomegranate syrup and lemon. I took 1/2 the steak and asparagus home. My blood sugar was 111 when I tested 2 hours later.

Big ol' bacon cheese burgers, french fries, and a lovely caprese salad, with cherry tomatoes and ciliegine (little mozzarella balls.) Really hit the spot!

in that light, i never got up to cook today, so the pork will have to wait until chewsday.
