One of the (many) benefits of working from home

travel is over for the year, phones and emails are slowing to a crawl. Im essentially playing goalie for a few hot emails and putting out a small fire here and there if/when they pop up. Leaves time for a long lunch (even though I never left the house). 

Parking lot wagyu flap that I butchered from whole muscle (that was kind of fun). Homemade jalapeño refried black beans, homemade salsa verde on (store-bought but fresh) flour tortilla. 

Also tried out a new rub that mail-Santa brought early. It was pretty good but not extraordinary. Made for good carne asada tacos though. 

on top of all that I brined some farmers-market yard-bird, seared on the bge before the steak went on and dropped in the Sous Vide to have around for the week. Looking forward to making a mess in the kitchen and on the deck these next few weeks. Glad you fine folks are along for the ride with me.

    that is one of the few things I still have not done. Not a huge fan of smoky cheese in most cases but I like it on some things.

    Amen to that! Last few years before I retired, I worked at home most days. No downside!

    Nice cook. I gotta work on my taco game!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
