Update from this thread:
So I spent my days nicely. You probably saw the pics of AZRP's shrimp that I did on Sunday. Monday, we went out for dinner to celebrate something. Then last night, I cooked some thick butterflied pork chops. Not the best I've ever had, but the best I've ever cooked. The enjoyment of the cook and meal was furthered by Miles Davis' "Birth of the Cool" that I had just downloaded.
Then tonight, I had my sister's family over for fajitas. One of the great things about living in AZ is always having a carniceria relatively close. Grabbed a couple of pounds of ranchera preparado. Threw that on direct with 1 green and red bell, 1 jalepeno, on anaheim, and one onion. Added a ton of lime juice before, during, and after. Got raves. Sorry, everyone was too hungry to get pics.
