A lot of meat and an”exercise high”

This is why we don't eat steak at fancy restaurants
Cowboy cut ribeyes and baked potatoes

We broke down and got a Kamado Grill, and the family is really loving it so far.  We got the Vision Pro S. I have already used it to put together some really good meals.

I had to deal with some minor medical crap at the end of the week. Luckiy it was a quick fix and I bounced back really fast.

Lindsey wrote a great post this morning about our Saturday movie night. Spoiler alert…the movies were bad.

Quick Hits

I did a teaser on Nashville hot chicken this week. I have more on that on the way soon.

If the Wife is Doing it…

I have not written on this page in a long time. I think if Lindsey can get her blog on … then I can definitely get back in the saddle. She is doing a great job. Posting about my severe toe injury and the odyssey of the file cabinet. I am writing this tonight as I slowly sip a

Oleo Saccharum – Fancy way of saying lemon peel and sugar

I have upped the game in my cocktail making lately. I have made a ton of infused simple syrups. I also tried my hand at Oleo Saccharum. The verdict is out…but I am pretty sure I will make it again.

Here are a few drinks I want to throw together: Bourbon Bramble
Homemade Zima
Blackberry Pimms Cup

Vision S Series
Vision Grill…Not a Big Green Egg.

We made the plunge and got a kamado grill. Hopefully it will be here this week. I can’t wait to break out some pork shoulder, and all the other fun things you can do with a cooker and a smoker. I have heard great things about the Visions.  I am pretty sure I will be happy with it in the long run. I just could not justify the price of a Big Green Egg.  I am pretty excited about cooking on it.
