Sorry to hear that, Chev, I've been trying to avoid it.

Ted, careful saying something like that, someone might actually come knocking on your door. Don't you live out in the middle of nowhere now? I'd imagine you could just go to the area and knock on every door in a couple of hours.

I had pizza last night, and might end up getting pizza delivered to the office tonight while I try to finish up this code. I normally work in the library on school projects, but there is nobody in the IT offices on the weekend and it's really much nicer.

I don't mind the extra people. It's an old Irish saying that there's always room for one more. Before the move we always had extra people eating with us. Now it almost doesn't seem worth it to cook such good meals when there's just two to feed, however it makes for great leftovers for the following day's lunch. We're not hard to find in this small town. Everyone knows who we are because everyone in our town has at least 3 relatives that are our students.

Tonight:

Baked cod & tartar sauce,
salad & vinegar&oil,
applesauce,
cheesy potato coins,
wheat bread & butter,
water,
and we finished that bottle of 3 buck chuck chardonnay that we opened the other day, although we only got about a half-glass each.

Hamburgers that put Gordon's to shame ... home made salt and vinegar potato chips ... salad.

Anyone know if it is possible to score non frozen lobster tails in a land locked state?

I was just in Toronto, and the markets there had them ... the markets in the ghetto in which I happen to reside do not.

I used to get stuff like that rather easily when I lived in Ohio (land locked other than Lake Erie, but in South Dakota, I don't think people even know what lobster is other than the two big cities where there might be a Red Lobster restaurant.

My god, I did nearly all of that. Left out the bread crumbs though ... was afraid it would make the burger too dry. I take it that the crumbs do not have that effect?

^ No! If you add a nce big "free range" brown egg to Progresso Italian Breands Crumbs and the Worchestshire to the mix, then they will not be dry at all! I don't use a lot either! Also, I don't over handle the meat!

basic soft tacos -

90%/10% lean ground beef cooked with
generic for McCormick taco seasoning,
lettuce,
crushed nacho chips,
hot sauce/taco sauce blend,
Cajun seasoning,
all wrapped in soft dried tomato tortillas,
water.

a couple swanson's pot pies, beef/chicken and a chicken fried steak dinner that couldn't have been more than 1oz including the corn and taters, because the pot pies were the smallish ones and not the good ones that are about half the size of a regular pie.

@ Widdy - i dunno what it is, i've been addicted to the good stuff mustard wise, ever since i opened a can of stone ground stuff we had forever that was scaring me (but hey, when you're outta mustard... )

Pardon me, but do you have any grey poupon?

good stuff

Tonight:

Kitchen clean-up burgers
just take a bunch of stuff out of your spice cabinet and fridge, and put it in the ground beef before making the burger patties.

I think tonights had chopped onion, chili peppers, bacon, cheese, too many random spices to list, and hot sauce/Worcester sauce mix.

It was fried with a couple splashes of Guinness on the pan and served with cheddar on a butter-grilled bun with deep fried chopped up potatoes on the side.

@ TDM - I like those frozen pot pie mixes with the pastries that you can quickly bake up and fill. I also like the Stouffer's ones that are already made ready to toss in the oven. You gave me a craving for those.

a few lays kettle cooked potato chips (delicious, but not as amazing as boulder canyon kettle cooked chips that i mentioned somewhere else earlier but had forgotten the brand name of. [if you just so happen to be inspired to look into boulder canyon chips DO NOT get "canyon cut" as these are not the kettle cooked sort, and are in fact just a plain jane rip off of ruffles.]) and a bowl of what i like to refer to as cheeppy puffs. (one of those in a bag rip offs of the middle shelf brands.)

be sure to get the plain variety of either the lays or boulder canyon. all the other flavors are, i feel, rather foul. with the exception of lay's maui onion.

^that sounds like it's worth trying.

We celebrated Renee's birthday yesterday (it's actually a different day).

Before dinner I had:
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale from the Sierra Nevada Brewing company in Chico, California, and
Powder Hound Winter Ale from the Big Sky Brewing Company in Missoula, Montana

Renee had Smirnoff Ice (poor gal never got a taste for beer)

For dinner,

9 oz. prime rib steaks cooked with fresh cut vegetables,
twice baked potatoes,
green beans,
salad,
water,
chocolate cake & French silk pie for dessert.

AND, we were lucky to open one of these:

A neighbor in Akron who I used to fish with got me an entire CASE (12 bottles) of it for our wedding. He has a whole cellar full of really good shit, and because of his health, he almost never drinks it. We're hoping to keep the other bottles in good shape and drink them on big anniversaries.

Holy shit. Be sure to send your neighbor a big thank you note!

That bottle you took a picture of looks to be in very good condition. If you noticed, the wine liquid level is much lower than in a bottle that you would see on a store shelf. This is very normal with wines of that age. You should continue to see the liquid level in the bottles go down over the years. So, I guess if you see that happening, don't get worried.

As long as you keep the bottles laid down and the capsules remain in tact, then you should not have to worry about mold growing on the cork coming from the outside environment. However, this does not mean that the cork may not be sterile and mold won't grow from within the cork and kill the wine. Just remember to keep them somewhat cool, exact temperature does not really matter so long as it remains constant throughout the year. Extremes are obviously bad as well as rapid spikes with heat being the worst. All the rest is up to the three moirae that are living within each of the bottles.

Can ya tell I like wine???

Oh if this friend ever wants to sell off anything ... let me know!

It's hard to admit that there was any liquid at all in that bottle - it was very very dry in taste - but that's something I really like, so not a bad thing at all. It is a 'table wine' so not quite top shelf but it handled the 41 years of aging quite well.

The cork came out without crumbling, but the top end of it looked like it would turn to dust if I were to so much as set it down the wrong way, and the bottom end was a little rubbery.

Overall, it was a great compliment to the cow that gave it's life for a place beside our potatoes. One of the best wine-to-food matches I have ever tasted.

No family this year for Easter. We all have tight schedules in addition to well over a thousand miles separating us. So...

Hot chili that I had made a while back and froze,
Crackers,
Milk
And, for desert, more chili.

3 1/2 lbs. 90/10 ground chuck
3 cans kidney beans
3 cans chili beans
1 large can tomato juice
1/2 large onion
1 green bell pepper
1 large tomato
10 jalapeno peppers
15-20 squirts tobasco sauce
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cyan pepper
2 packets of hot chili seasoning

This recipe fills about 2/3 or 3/4 of a 10 qt. stock pot.

Sounds pretty good. Personally, I'd probably cut the ketchup and mustard down a tiny bit to thicken it up a little. I know... that's why they're called 'sloppy' joes. I don't like mustard, but as long as it doesn't stand out, I can eat it.

For dinner tonight, I had a big bowl of spaghetti that my dad made. It was teh good.

I add finely chopped bell pepper to my sloppy joes but what you had sounded fine.

I ate Native American taco/pizza. It has a thick pizza crust, hamburger meat with some taco seasoning, a salsa-like toping, shreaded cheese, and I don't remember what else. It was good.
