We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin
and Ground Beef Acorn Squash
recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Am I sick? Do I need help?
On the holiday Monday we only expected one grandson and son-in-law. I kept it simple and did a tri-tip roast style. Came out great and we sent them home with lots of food. I got a couple hundred pint and quart containers like you get in Chinese restaurants (without wires) because since it’s just the two of us we always have more than we can eat. Yesterday I decided to dispose of a 10 pound cured ham the wife got on sale I-don’t-know-when that has been taking space in the freezer. Wife did a honey-mustard glaze and in 4 hours plus it came out great. We could only eat so much so daughter came over today for most of what was left. Today it was off to Wally-World for some lump. Across the road at Costco was beer, wine and low and behold: quarter pound hot dogs. We have leftover chili the wife hade made. So tonight it was chili cheese dogs. I took a loooong time bringing it up to temp. Three beers worth for two humble dogs. Got the grate hot and pulled said grate off to toss in some apple chips to smoke as I put on the dogs. I don’t know if they did anything for the flavor but I like watching the smoke more than I liked watching the topless dancers on San Francisco’s Broadway 40 years ago. John 21:9 ESV has Jesus cooking fish on the beach over charcoal. That was a couple thousand years ago. I am totally convinced that when I cross the river He’ll be there with a Big Green Egg fired up and waiting for me. Am I crazy?
My actuary says I'm dead.
