I agree with you there, roadfix. I don't buy pre-marinated meats, if I'm going to use a marinade, I'd rather make my own. Come to think of it, much as I love TJ's, I don't think I've ever bought any of their meats.

Nope, I don't buy their meat either. It may be "organic" and all, but that term doesn't impress me much for the price. I once bought an expensive "free range" chicken there, and I wasn't even impressed like I expected to be. If I could only find a free range chicken that was killed that day, I'd pay big bucks.

The omelets sound good Taxi. My new microwave does a remarkable job of defrosting meat. It just tickled me to pieces I could get my tri tip out of the freezer and be ready to go in no time. My old micro sure couldn't do that.

Mine might be able to do that, but I didn't want to risk it.

Looks good, Joey. By the way, I don't very often hear of anyone other than me that likes lima beans.

Rock, I could go for one of those pan pizzas...that looks great!

Here's a picture of my make shift smoker under the gas grill tri tip tonight. All three burners were on med. with the foil packet of soaked wood chips under the grate of the center burner. It took a total of 30 minutes with the lid closed.


The half on the right is cut correctly, although thinner would be better. The half on the left must also be cut across the grain.
