    Cooked filets for the GF and me today. Couldn't get the grill hot enuf for a char, so the steak cooked to a medium. I prefer med. rare, it was windy and cold. I should have turned on the other 2 burners. The main reason I'm posting this is because I won't be posting in this forum for the next, 6 to 8 weeks. I'm going Tues to get all 27 teeth I have left pulled and getting me some temps. So it will be that long before I can eat even close to normal. I had pizza yesterday and this today. What killed me here is my GF likes her's well done. So I wrapped hers in foil then put it in the oven I cooked the rolls in then cut it off. When I made her togo plate to carry to work at 5:00, I unwrapped the steak and it was sitting in a puddle of this great looking juice. What did I have to do? Pour it down the sink, cause she can't stand any kind of meat juice. This should be against the law as it almost killed me. I thought about putting it on the potato, but then she would't have eat'n that. She thinks the juice is blood. The horror, the horror.

    Yaiks. Not sure what procedure requires you to pull all your teeth out, but I wish you a good luck. You know, it's funny you mention this whole thing about the steak doneness 'cause the first thought that came to mind after seeing the picture was, "what? Mr. jimfet, a well done steak?" even before reading the text. Can't remember how many times I've told my wife and daughters that a good steak cooked beyond medium ruins it.

    Breakfast this late morning: bacon, eggs and potato pancakes from scratch (fried in the bacon grease) topped with sour cream, all washed down with a cup o' joe.
    Did something a little different today. Added a T of dried chives to the potato mix. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Note that I like pepper,.........................a lot.
    :idea: I think this is my first post in this thread with an actual dinner.
    Usually I'm just drooling over someone else's.

    Hey Jim
    Good luck with dental work. I'm sure you'll be back in no time at all.
    I had to go on a liquid diet a while back. You'd be surprised how good cream of chicken soup tastes. Run it though a blender.
    Refried beans was a go to dish as well.
    Any who take care and stay in touch.Eric

    Yesterday I feasted on collards seasoned with ham hocks and cornbread. If you're not from the south y'all probably don't know much about collards. Here they're almost a delicacy and most "meat and three" restaurants feature them as the greens of choice. When southerners finish off their collards they make sure to have some cornbread left over. The next step is to crumble the cornbread into the pot likker left in the bowl. Pot likker is the juice from the greens and yes they're real words. Some folks like to add a bit of pepper vinegar to their collards but I like'em plain.

    Refried beans have already crossed my mind. Already loaded up the fridge with pudding. Gonna get some stuff for milk shakes too. Thanks for the concern. I think my check book is going to hurt worse than my mouth.

    Good luck with the work.

    (You should have sopped up that juice with a piece of bread and chowed down!) :)

    May the Holy One, blessed be He, do what only He can do in Jim's situation. Even now the need for such work can be removed. We ask that the Holy one intervene, if it be within His Divine Will. There is nothing that is even difficult for Him. In any case, may the Holy One maximize the wisdom, knowledge and skill of each member of the medical staff. May the Holy One minimize any consequent pain and suffering. May the Holy One make His presence, love and care tangible during this very frightening time. And may the Holy One bring Jim back to us as soon as possible, that we may continue our friendship and mutual inspiration.

    For folks who have not been exposed to southern cooking here's your chance. Cracker Barrels are now located in 44 states and here's what I'd recommend for that "taste of the south in your mouth"
    Greens and beans with a slice of onion for the pinto's and chow chow for the greens. Corn muffins on the side and wash it all down with sweetea ( that's one word down here ) and you'll be whistling Dixie.
