Tuesday 4th September

Last night we tried a Shrimp Curry...it was okay, but a bit on the bland side

Whilst in Va Beach, we happened upon Walkerswood brand jerk seasoning. I have read that it is very good.....we shall see. Got the fire pit all ready to light. Jerk Chicken, rice and peas, mebbe some fried plantains too. I was gonna get some Red Stripe but forgot it. A few Coronitas is all I got here for beverages. Oh well, can't have ever'thing, I reckon.

Hoot, Walkerswood is excellent jerk seasoning. I mix it with Lowery's (sp?) bottled jerk marinade to add some serious jerk heat and stretch it out. Maybe one heaping spoon to 1 cup of the marinade. Excellent on grilled wings. I'm glad to read it's available here. I got my bottle from Jamaica... mon...

Steak dinner for me tonight. Steak, broccoli, potatoes, garlic bread. That will "make up" for the salad I had last night for dinner

I am supposed to get lots of rest and thanks to the medications I got I don't have a lot of choice. DH fended for himself both on the main meal (his favourite polish dogs with cheese and my homemade tomato sauce and some pizza herbs and salad) and his sandwiches so I am on my own.

I will probably just throw together a salad.

Finished up the doggie-boxes we brought back from vacation. I made some rice to go with the pistachio chicken.

Lightened the load in the freezer tonight and heated up an order of meatballs in tomato sauce for spaghetti.

Mrs Hoot's sister and her husband run a small diner in Norfolk. I accompanied him to the restaurant supply store. We found Walkerswood Original, Hot, and Mild. I tried the Mild tonight on account of Mrs Hoot ain't keen on the heat. It was decently spicy and delicious. Even Mrs Hoot found it quite good. I will be stocking up on this stuff. Looking forward to trying the Original and the Hot. That Restaurant Depot is an amazing store!
'Course, now I need to see if I can find this Lowery's jerk marinade you speak of.
