I got lots of them. Work, travel, broken stove (?), other commitments, high school sports, surgery for a broken finger, bad pictures (stay tuned), you name it. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking…
First there was brisket in the snow.
The ends were burnt (on purpose, look up burnt ends elsewhere here and you’ll see why), and served up with smoker beans and slaw.
Did I mention bad pictures earlier? Anyway, on with the show. Pork tenderloin was on the grill at some point during December.
If memory serves me correct, the glaze was made with apricot pepper jelly. Trashbag taters were also on the menu that night.
Speaking of apricot pepper jelly, it found its way onto a batch of two of MOINK.
I seem to remember something about bad pictures. But the MOINK was good, in spite of poor lighting and camera skills.
Post-finger-surgery, the Red-haired Boy (not so little anymore based on the pre-surgery measurements) decided he would play on my sympathies and order up one of his favorite meals. Teriyaki strips made it to the grill tonight.
That’s right, he had surgery on Christmas Eve. Nothing like a few pins in the finger to whet an appetite.
Ok, that more or less catches us up just in time for Christmas. Originally I wasn’t going to cook on Christmas Day (yup, even I get a day off once in awhile), but things happen and plans change.
Guess that ham my sister sent us will come in real handy tomorrow…
