Kinda tired this evening,
So another vote for the cheese burger and fries meal.
At least I have some horseradish cheese and garden ripe tomatoes to perk the burgers up a bit. Not quite sure how to jazz the fries up a bit though.
Any suggestions?

Would you mind sharing your marinade recipe and grilling method, Marion? We have a LOT of lovely venison in the freezer, and it's almost hunting season again.

We are also having venison tonight. I got a bag of Italian Venison out of the freezer.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Most absolute dear, I will share.

I made no specific measure of ingredients. But, I do feel confident, if one were to follow these approximate scales, satisfaction would be obtained. And please do understand, our meal preparation, at times, is merely "off-da-cuff" and very relaxed. This specific recipe was a mere conglomoration from the cabinets.

One venison roast, sliced to 1/2" thick steaks.


1/2 c Olive Oil
1/2 c Cider Vinegar
Good measure of worcestrshire sauce
Touch of Taragon
3 tblsp mollasses
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
Good splashing of dried basil
Fair "squirt" of ketchup
Small hill, in palm of hand, of sea-salt
Several good cranks of black pepper

Wisk well, pouring over steaks. Allow to marinade several hours. Pour off marinade and boil the marinade for a bit. Grill steaks on hot coals, basting with marinade. Careful not to over-cook. Med-rare, at most. Place steaks in remaining marinade until all other preparation is made. Serve. Enjoy with a robust red.

Sorry for being so "off-da-cuff", but a significant portion of our "during-da-week" meals are prepared this way.

ooooooooh yum, Marion!!!

Sephora - that's the location I shopped at most - we've had D-land passes for years. I've finally let them expire, but fortunately there is another one that recently opened nearby.

And, I am now craving fritos too. Lots and lots.

We are in a hotel for the next few days, so looking forward to some good restaurant meals!
It's going to be a rainy day here in our Nation's capitol, so I'm making an easy tomato sauce I do a lot with a twist:
1 can tomatoes (whole preferably)
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic (I like garlic)
2 tablespoons EEOL
1 tbs oregano
1 1/2 tbs black pepper
Seasoned or regular salt to taste

Tonight I added black olives. Yum.

Leftover Chinese order in.

You've never heard of Frito Pie? I shocked, shocked I say . Well, I was until I noticed you are from the UK.

I've never "eaten" lamb either. I had a small bite once, same with duck, and salmon.

LMAO ~ he stuck his head in the box that the kitty litter comes in and got stuck. I heard this loud thumping from the room he was in and found him with the container on his head. I whiped out my trusty utility knife and cut the bottom off. He looked so "what the heck did I do" I just had to take a picture. It took about 20 minutes, my toe nail clippers, my wire cutters, and the utility knife to get the container off his head but he was unharmed. I use the picture because in the end, it really was hysterical when it happened. If I had a video camera I could have sent it in to a funniest video show. He's my curious Charlie always getting into trouble. But I love him.
