"Double double animal style, no pickles, well done fries. And a coke."
I don’t know if it’s selling out or not, but for a half-pound of vanilla beans, I’m not beyond selling myself out a bit. Jaden (who I won saffron from) is now hosting a contest to win a half-pound of vanilla beans. My favorite recipe suggestion? Definitely Alton Brown’s Creme Brulee. Although, I really want […]
Saffron has arrived
As promised, Jaden ordered me a year’s supply of Saffron. USPS dropped it in my mailbox today. I’m surprised by just how much Saffron a year’s supply is. I really think this’ll last us more than a year. Thanks, Jaden!
Neat! I won a year’s supply of saffron from Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen! Thanks, Jaden! Guess I’ll need to blog and post photos of what we make with it.
Vegetarians, avert your eyes!
Fired up the Big Green Egg again this weekend to cook fajitas for a close group of friends. By cook fajitas, I mean cook lots of fajitas. We picked up a whopping ten pounds of flank steak from Amazon Fresh and cooked it all. If that wasn’t enough, we also cooked up some chicken fajitas; […]
Amazon Fresh: Delivery #2 (and iFatigue)
We tried Amazon Fresh again today. We’re throwing a fajita party this weekend, and I noticed that Amazon Fresh had really awesome prices on flank steak. I scheduled the order this time for Thursday night between 8:00 and 9:00pm, as opposed to the Saturday morning delivery we had last time. Groceries looked great again. Produce […]
Amazon Fresh: a test run
A few weeks back, we were out and about around town, and I noticed a truck and storefront for Amazon Fresh. I knew the coming-out date had to be close for my neighborhood, so I headed over their webpage to request an account. A few weeks later, I got an email saying that delivery was […]
5:24am and I’m awake
This could be my earliest blog post ever. Already been awake for an hour today. And, no, this is definitely not normal for me. However, the [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) is at a happy 220°F, and a 9.5lb brisket has been going for 25 minutes. On at 5:00am, plan to take it off at 6:30pm. Flip […]
New Grill! I’m an “egg”head!
After reading several reviews on the web, and getting inspired by a [co-worker](http://www.seanalexander.com/2006/09/05/LaborDayBBQMeetsTechWizardry.aspx), I decided to buy a new grill. And I’ve eschewed the propane tank forever. I bought a [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) from [Thompson’s Hearth & Home](http://www.thompsonshearth.com/bbq.htm) in Issaquah. This thing is a beast! Tips the scales at over 140 pounds, and I can’t […]
A long day
Today started out fairly normal and as planned, but it went downhill. As I sit here, my arms are bruised. My jaw is fairly numb. I have 4 teeth less than I had this morning. I’m on pain medication. It sounds drastic, but, yeah, I got my wisdom teeth removed this morning. First time ever […]
