    Today was quite warm!

    Was out in a sweater but the soups here are starting to turn my soup craving. Some good stuff.

    It always changes a little bit, but this time I did:

    -Olive Oil
    -Worchestshire
    -Beef broth
    -7up (I use this in almost all of my marinades)
    -Cherry juice from maraschino cherry jar.
    -Before pouring on I first salt both sides of the meat, then sprinkle it with fajita rub (just taken from google)

    This time it was only marinating for 6 hours maybe 8. Normally I do overnight.

    When you take it out pat dry it with paper towels. And I rarely let fajitas rest. I just dive in.

    *Something I have been doing recently when doing fajitas is using a fork and just poking the meat (I guess tenderizing it really), flip over and do the other side as well. Seems to have been one thing I believe has improved my fajitas. Although I'm still searching for a specific taste that I can't pinpoint.

    I agree with AzIt, that's a perfectly coated chop!
    Should be on a box of Shake & Bake or something! :)

    Yes please share! Do I spy a nice scoop or two of smashed (skin on) potatoes behind it?

    Friend gave us some of their surplus Anaheim peppers in exchange for our surplus cucuzza. So, remembering the above post, I roasted them on the gasser with a medium sized onion, head of garlic. Didn't have maters, so had to use a few stewed tomatoes from a can. Added S&P, cumin, cilantro. Blitz.

    And, since we had no chips, we enjoyed them on Ritz crackers. If that's good enough for @BrettC and his caviar, it should be good enough for our salsa!

    I've been craving something Smokey so stopped at a new BBQ spot today. Overall wasn't too bad. Pork could've used a bit more smoke but it was nice and tender. Spicy dill potato salad was tasty. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I usually throw in some Andouille sausage, but I screwed up today and grabbed some Mexican Chorizo by accident. Once I had sliced through the wrapper (label down) I decided, what the heck, throw it in! I also had some leftover grilled chicken and shrimp on hand, so they went in too. Actually came out pretty good. Spicier than usual but acceptable.

    I love fried oysters, but they don't love me. In college, there was a bar near campus that did a good fried oyster po boy. With Tabasco and an ice cold pitcher of beer, excellent.

    Last night. Filet mignon. Choice from Costco. Nice and thick. Served it with a little side salad with Meyer lemon vinaigrette.

    Tonight is shrimp scampi. Key West pinks. It's garlicky, I'll give it that much.
