        If the weather in Detroit is moving your way,
  You won't be cookin' outside for a few days. It is colder than a
 Witch digger's brass monkey in the murder city. Windy, and snowin' too !!
     Good luck tonight, Geno !

I hear Ya Toad, but still ...
Marty and I decided to brave the elements, and go for that
char broiled steak over a real wood fire vibe of...

"Damn the torpedoes ... full speed ahead!

It's freezing cold, and snowing here at 'D'Street

and yes, we are cooking out in the snow!

I need a STEAK!

Stay tuned ... Film at 11:00"

~~~~~~
Ok.. is it 11:00pm yet?



*LoL*





Lovely weather for a cook out!



even though it's cold as hell out there, and snowing, the smell of that wood fire, the steaks, the bread and that garlic mixing in the cold air with the snowflakes is still sooo nice...

and now with frozen hands and toes completed while cooking over a wood fire in winter,
it's now back inside to warm up again and enjoy dinner,
finally...


Steak (round eye steaks marinaded in red wine, and garlic with a dash of Stubbs BBQ sauce), Bread (french country sourdough petite loaf, cut open into slices, sprinkled with garlic, virgin olive oil and pads of butter between each slice, wrapped in tin foil and heated/baked over open flame) mashed garlic Potatoes in butter, & Steamed Fresh Broccoli and Carrots. ... and a Corona!


Hominid Cave Man simple, but ohhh so good!

*LoL*

Geno,
 
While your at it, could you torpedo one of those steaks over to here?   I'm hungry!!!
 
(We're having crock-pot ribs Sunday night.  I'm not as brave a cook as you ... it's 26 degrees outside!)
 
Love that picture!!!

Hi Donna!

Well, I'd love to torpedo a few steaks out to ya, but not tonight...
JEEZ
the wind is literally howling out there and it's really cold...
here's a shot of the 'D'Street Laser Guided Temperature reader,,,
the temp right where the "red laser dot" is pointed
(i.e. inside the now cold grill...)
is a whopping...

13.8 F
...just a little too nippy tonight
to be standing out there
freezing in the howling wind
trying to cook... anything!
(except possibly ice cream on the frozen grill)
*LoL*

Well, I certainly don't blame you!  13.8 is a little too much for any creature - man or beast -  to be out in.  Stay warm, Cuz!

Geno... Deck cooking in the middle of winter!!!  LOL  You're going to have to come out here and thaw out.
 
I made steak tonight too... with buttery mushrooms and garlic and lemon pepper... baked potato and lightly cooked greens.
 
Tomorrow (or tonight I mean)... I'm cooking an uncured ham... no nitrates or nitrites. 
 
I'm not sure what to fix with it... we'll see.

Fridays I have a group of friends that go out and have dinner together.  I would be joining them tonight but since I finally have some free time on my hands, I need to really get going on these holiday CD's I am making, so I am thinking of ordering pizza.

         Mixey,
      A good side for your ham would be an acorn squash.
  Cut it in half, scoop out the seeds and goo, and add about 4 patties
 of butter in the cavity. They taste better if you nuke them in a mic,
 rather than baking them in a oven. No jive.
      I like to take leftover ham, and mix it in with some creamy scalloped
 potatoes. Pure comfort food.
      I got ten inches of snow over here at Cadavor Commons today.
  We are having a very white Christmas...for sure!
     
       Mickey,
       Your Pizza sounds good. I haven't had a pizza in a couple of months.
  My favorite toppings are: Cheese, bacon, green pepper, and Mushrooms.

MM...
I had a really good pizza with my son the other night... garlic chicken, mushrooms and spinich.
 
So funny Toad I almost had acorn squash.  I love it... tastes nutty.  Instead I had boiled potatoes, lathered in butter, pepper and mediterranean cheese yogurt.
 
"Cadavor Commons"........ LOLDeadLOL We need a nicer name for your place, Toad.

To add, my favorite pizza toppings are pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and green olives, sometimes I can eat it without pepperoni.  Oh and cheese, loads and loads of cheese.

        I am making some Vegetable/beef soup Monday for dinner.
  I went to the grocery store this afternoon and froze my ass off.
    I won't be trying that again, anytime soon.
 Looking forward to the soup !!

       I think I bought a ham about3 days before you did,Mixey.
  It was about the size of two cans of spam glued together.
 Boneless.... $4.50  The price worked for me.
    I ate Ham and eggs for two days, and froze the remainder.
  After hearing Geno begging you for a ham sandwich, I de-frosted
 some, and just finished MY ham sandwich. Sorry, Geno....
  I was thinking about you, all the time I was eatin' it.
       Mixey,
 What are you gonna do when 5 or so of us Eskimos show up
 at your back door?

Toad...
 
Every day we're banging away at the studio, I think about that very thing!  OMG how cool would it be to have everybody from Soulful Planet out here.  That would be awesome!!!
 
LooooL a 2 spam ham! 
Hamwiches with chinese hot mustard sounds good right now... but...
 
Right now I'm eating 2 pecan chocolate clusters with caramel... better than sex  and a hot toddy.
 
What's a hot toddy anyway????

OMG you're all making me HUNGRY and it's only 10:30 in the morning!!LOL  I could eat some of everything mentioned here.
 
Mixey, those chocolate pecan caramel clusters are one of my favorite candies.  They call them "turtles" around here. Better than sex??  YUP.Smile 
 
Hot toddy - haven't had one in many years (since I don't drink anymore), but I think they were traditionally made with sugar and lemon, some sort of whiskey or bourbon and heated.

Geno... I wanna break off one of those icicles!!!
 
Dream... TURTLES... Yes!  I forgot that name. 
 
Apparently Shocked ANTS love Turtles too.  I left an opened box in the food closet... and .......................................... here came the parade!!!!!
 
Thanks for the hot toddy description.  Toad's and Geno's description belongs in the Batcave I think.
 
Speaking of Bats...
 
Toad... I saw the guy Andrew Zimmern you were talking about on the Travel Channel... who travels around checking out bizarre foods.
 
Mom and I watched him a few hours ago, as he assisted in the murder and ingesting of  bats, worms, yellowfin tuna, wild pigs, a wild chicken, eels and a giant clam.  He even ate a still beating tuna heart and sucked a raw eyeball. 
 
Mom and I were appalled, but kept watching... sort of like the Godfather marathon on Thanksgiving.
 
Good God!

        Mixey,
    The guy to look for on the travel channel is: Anthony Bourdaine.
 His show is called/ "No Reservations."
     That Andrew Zimmer dude grosses me out !  I can't watch that
 show without getting ill.
      Bourdaine's show involves him eating food prepared by locals
 and street vendors in the many countries he visits. No 5 star hotel
 fare... just honest "Home" cooking that the locals eat...cooked inside or outside, usually over an open flame of some sort. "Native fare" if you will.
    He usually gets stuck drinking some form of rot-gut whiskey, or
 fermented brew the locals serve up for his meals..most of which he
 claims tastes like turpentine, or cleaning fluid.
    It's a great show, and the guy is funny as hell with his descriptions
  of his adventures.

LooooooooooL Toad!!  You mean we watched the Shocked WRONG GUY!!
 
I told Mom you watch that guy all of the time.  lol  She and I had a whole conversation about how hypocrytical we are, eating meat, but not wanting to acknowledge the Dead aspect of it.
 
All that torture... and it wasn't even the right show.  LOL
