Go!.

My dog the new Saveur issue is full of wonderful things to keep me busy for weeks.  I just might have to cook every damn thing in it.kkI'm already devising how to make my own neonata rosamarina.  A Calabrian fish and pepper sauce.  Gonna try to find soem locally or have some shipped first so I can dissect it then I'll make my own.  Fuck yes.  I'm inspired!

Going back to Arkansas next month and bringing back a bunch of decent beers I can't get in Okieland: Lagunitas, Avery, etc.

Made RAGER CARNE ASADA last night with sirloin on the grill, was phenom.  Had leftovers for lunch.

Finally ponied up and bought a digital meat thermometer and now my grilling is much more consistent.

You know, the first time I got one of these and stuck them in the food on the grill it made me be more aggressive in rotating front to back and side to side - I was surprised by how wildly different the temp on everything was. I am in love with mine...

traditional grilling wisdom says only flip a steak once. but they found it cooked mor quickly and more evenly if you flip it a buncha times...science!

if you poke a peice of meat multiple times with a meat thermometer..arent you kind of releasing the juices?

If you're lookin', it ain't cookin'.

Yeah, but not as much as cutting it open and looking to see how pink it is/ain't.  This system never worked for me either:

Yeah, I think you can flip things and move them around all you want, though opening the lid is taking a temp hit.  You can usually find a safe place to stick the probe in, through a vein of fat say, but yeah it does commence to leaking a bit.   I usually only take Chickens temp though - once you get the outside of the steak right it always coasts to done during the rest period.

Today's lunch was a sammich.  All-wheat bread with plain hummus as the spread, 3 thin slices of turkey, 1 piece of Sargento reduced-fat Colby Jack cheese, 2 thin slices of tomato, and 2 bread-and-butter kosher pickle slices.  Topped of with a side of cottage cheese with lots of pepper.

I have this like 4 times a week.  Doesn't get old, and keeps me looking so pretty.  :D

I time my steaks when I panfry 'em, if the steak isn't too thick: 2 minutes on each side in a very hot pan usually does the trick. I like my steak rare to medium rare.

IMO, steak on a bbq is more difficult and the chance of drying out is bigger.

I cooked a whole (10 pound) pork shoulder overnight (10 hours) at 250 degrees. I only do this about once a year, because that's how long it takes me to forget that a whole pork shoulder is way too much for me. By the time I've eaten the whole thing, I am sick of eating pork for 3 months. But I found out that it freezes well. I shredded it, and froze about 1/3.

The housemates will be moved out this weekend.  I'm ecstatic to have the entire kitchen to myself.  Got a lot of reorganizing to do and a bunch of my stuff to still unpack.  Gonna set up a couple more work/prep surfaces.  Couldn't really do this before because if there's a horizontal surface anywhere, they're prone to stacking shit on it which drives me nuts to have to constantly move other peoples shit.  I can't fucking wait.
