Dad liked my pork loin!!!

<p />Here's my 91 year old dad who I take car of enjoying his pork dinner this past weekend! [p]Please note: the healthy glass of red .... beverage! Not bad for 91? He is blind so that is why the tape machine there. I hope the fact that he can not see what he is eating doesn't have an effect on what he enjoys out of my BGE!

    <p />Forgot to post what dinner looked like before serving, a half loin basted in a mix if EVOO, RW vin and some seasonings including a dollup of good Dijon mustard.

    I hope my kids take as good care of me in my golden years as you do for your Dad. Your Dad is probably very proud of you, I'm sure.

    Thanks for the photo. It touches my heart. My dad is 88 and he lives about 600 miles from me. I wish I had the opportunity to prepare him a meal on my egg. Keep up the good work. These are important moments for the both of you.

  • Hotfire, words cannot express what one's heart feels when knowing you are with your Dad during his golden years. Things to be learned by many! You haved earned your jewels while here on earth. Fine work...well done with much love.

    You're the best. We only get one Father. I'm visiting my 82 year old Dad this weekend to attend a graveside dedication to my Great Great Grandfather who's marker was destroyed by fire many years ago. That means no tools this weekend, but this a Hell of a lot more important. I see it more everyday. Man, are we preoccupied.[p]My best to you and your Dad.[p]Mike

    egret,[p]You can only talk about how good this thing is. I would have left it for him, but he honestly told me he would never use it. I knew he wouldn't. But he was glad I cooked for him on it.
