Feel better soon, PF! I fried up a flat iron steak earlier, Beagle and I had a bit of that. Then I remembered the enchilada a friend made for me yesterday, so some of that later.

Hope you feel better PF!!


I've been using the SousVide on beautiful little 2.25 lb choice rib roast. Looks like a thick Rib Eye to me. What's in a name anyway? I'll finish it on my "Wilma Flintstone Yabba Dabba Doo" searing burner on the side of the grill. Fun, Fun!!
Baked spuds and seamed brocollini will finish the plates.

Actually, you are having chicken tacos. Chicken fajitas don't technically exist. Yeah, I'm being a bit of a PITA, but the truth is, fajitas are beef... literally.

Okay, now that I have cleared that up, I am grilling chicken thighs tonight. If I had tortillas, I could make chicken tacos... but not fajitas!

I haven't started cooking yet, but I've stirred the pot.

That's gonna' be good. That is my favorite way to cook steak. Well, I use my Searsall for the final char, but the result is the same. Good job, Wilma!

Four times that storm circled back and each time, the thunder was louder and each boomer would last longer. I turned the lights off for a minute or so. The next bolt of lightning that came, lit up the whole room. That storm was directly over this building. I can live without storms of that nature.

I had a very small piece of my Mother's Day pork chop. I also got my meal from Meals on Wheels. It was Mexican food. Not one of my favorites.

I did get them to give me 100% milk instead if the 1%. My skinny bones need all the calcium they can get.

No longer true. According to Wikipedia: "A fajita in Tex-Mex cuisine is any grilled meat that is served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish. Popular meats today also include chicken, pork, shrimp, lamb, salmon, other types of fish, and other cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fajita

So if we are to be exact in our language, how do you train a chicken to fry your steak?

1% milk actually has 29 more mg of calcium than whole milk (which is 3.25% fat).

I'm still not sure why the chicken crossed the road.

As for fajitas, I'm old and stubborn, so if it ain't steak, it ain't fajitas. Grumble, grumble, scoff.

Oh, and for the record, it's Pork Roll, not Taylor Ham, BT.
