  • Lunch

    "Double double animal style, no pickles, well done fries.  And a coke."

  • Selling out?

    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!

  • Saffron

    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 […]
