No cooking for me today. We're going to Busch Gardens for their Hall-O-Scream event that our son participates in. He plays a zombie (pretty much his natural state anyway so he was definitely type-cast!) so we will eat at the park. We'll have sandwiches for lunch before we go.

I'm thawing out the other half pork sirloin roast. It will be easier to store the individual serving packs than the roast. It was taking up too much room in my crowded freezer.

I was disappointed last time with the apple juice braising liquid. It had all the meat juices in it, but didn't taste like I could use it for broth or gravy.

This time I'll make up the liquid so I can use the broth in other things.

I've also got carrot coins that I cooked in chicken broth with dill and some grated ginger. I'll glaze them for dinner with butter and brown sugar.

Speaking from experience, turning 40 and 50 make your stomach go the other way

Stew sounds good. I think I'll head into the store and pick up a chuck roast and make some stew.

I was almost going to make beer can chicken myself, but didn't feel like driving to the "good" store to pick up a chicken.
And it's a nice fall day here, too. I just spent a couple hours out back plinking with one of my new 22's.

Oh dear So in 9 years it's gonna get worse

Stew was good, wish I didn't eat so much though, I feel like a stuffed turkey!
I also used chuck, I normally go for shin but this was good too
