Lance, that is a pic of Steve Kroll's pork chop, with his homemade ghost pepper relish.

Steve, thank you for sharing the recipe for your cucumber salad. Sounds wonderful - copied and saved!

Mmmm....fabulous looking dinner, CG!

We took 95 pounds off of DH a coupla years back by eating "clean" I guess is the word for the diet that we used. Lean meats, veg, a little good carb, very little fruit, no sugar, no oil, no soft drinks, no alcohol and lots of water.
I think for him it's all textural when it comes to food. The mouth-feel. If he even sees big hunks of fat on a piece of meat, there's no way in the world I'm going to get him to eat it. I even tried cutting up the steak and at the same time cutting away as much visible fat as possible.
I have noticed though, over the years Rib Eyes are much fatter. And with the price sky rocketing, when pay for something that won't be eaten.

Since I'm a tightwad frugal person, I don't usually buy high-priced ingredient. However, since I do cook most of the time, this has become my new mantra. Our new Discover bill just hit. One restaurant stop in the entire billing period while out having fun for the day...buying new kitchen toys.
