Petrified mushrooms...as opposed to slimy mushrooms, can be brought back to life by soaking in warm water. Then just squeeze the water out, but they soften up nicely. I usually just rough chop and add to soup pr stew.

I had leftover Christmas dinner, Tamales, Spanish Rice and Refries. The Spanish rice has picked up some totally radical kick after a couple of days in the fridge! Woohoo!

Gorgeous picture, TL!
Glad you enjoyed the garlic bread Z. Try it sometime with fresh chopped garlic.

You guys remember that tough tri tip from a couple nights ago? I did get my money back for it, and didn't even have to roll any heads at Von's.
Tonight I cut it up into tiny pieces and cooked it into submission for a Smoked Tri Tip black bean Chili. It was finally fit for eating.
Cooked up some white onion, and chopped garlic, added the meat and 2 cans of well rinsed black beans, 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes, and a packet of taco seasonings. Topped the bowls with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Dang fine eating..........finally.
Thank you Kayelle!!

I posted a garlic butter for garlic bread and as a garlic bread crust pizza awhile ago. Here is the link if anyone is interested.

Grilled cheese on pumpernickel with extra sharp cheddar and sliced tomatoes, and a green salad.

I tried smoking cabbage once, but it never dried out enough to roll it right, and it was too big for the cigarette papers. Then I remembered that I don't smoke!

andy, petrified? what were your mushrooms afraid of?

nice job, mofet, on both the roast and garic bread. yummm.

we got take out from a local steak joint tonight. it's an interesting place. it used to be a pizza place, but the chef who owns it tore out the pizza ovens and put in a big grill and kitchen prep area. in front there's just a few tables but no wait staff so you pick up from the counter, no booze, just great steaks, chops, and other grilled goodies.

dw had the grilled chicken over greek salad, my boy had bbq chicken, and i had the protein salad (slices of grilled steak, pork loin, chicken breast, and swiss cheese over lettuce, tomato, and kalamata olive salad). and we all shared a side of rice and beans.
