Ooh, good looking suppers Joey and Beth. Did you notice much difference in flavour, since it was bison, not beef?

It's still, hot, humid, and soupy out. We didn't feel like going out. Stirling grilled some hot dogs.

Buffalo is the best, period. The prices went sky high here in MT. I'd like to harvest another one in the near future.

Those are some mighty fine looking eats beth and s&p!

Hot and humid here, too, so I sent Himself out to grill. Actually, pork tenderloin doesn't take long at all. I seasoned the meat with herbs de provence and granulated garlic. He also grilled asparagus while he was out there. I steamed up broccoli too, and we had spinach salads to start.

Later, as a joke, he said "make me something". Little did he know I figured I'd already planned to toss a big, fudgy cookie into the bottom of a small dish, topping with vanilla ice cream, and drizzling Hershey's syrup on top, finishing with a half of a strawberry. When I took it into he living room he said "I was only kidding!"...but still took the bowl. Sometimes a sweet treat is nice.

That looks tasty. I love the snowfall of Parmesan on the asparagus.

Not really. Although I remember what beef tastes like, it is a species I have had very little of in my life.

Thanks, ladies! It's actually Pecorino Romano, fluffed up nicely with my Microplane coarse grater. I had to do something to hide the "nice" char on the asparagus.
