Yeah, I got lucky and married into a whole family of 'em

Not that I can't cook, I know a few things about the art. But I look at cooking as a chore... like cleaning... some people love it; some don't - I'm one of those...
I see why you keep Flash around.

Left over barbequed chicken cooked on the rotisserie last night. It was cooked with a rub Mrs. B picked up in Playa in March. Fan-freakin'-tastic! Accompanied by a fresh-off-the-barbeque vegetable dish, made with asparagus, yellow & green sweet peppers, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, parsnips and carrots. After they're cooked to just the right degree of crunchiness, they get tossed with a dressing made of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Incredibly tasty and altogether too healthy. Probably pull the cork on a particularly chewy Australian Cabernet/Shiraz blend we're enjoying these days. Picked up 2 1/2 cases of it at the liquor store on a clearance of discontinued items. A gen-you-wine treasure at $6.99 CDN a bottle. Life don't get no better!
Damn Bump. :p

The life and times of a bachelor.

I generally never eat during the day until dinner time.

Yummy !!!!!!
The veggie dish sounds wonderful. Hmmmmmm maybe you woud be kind enough to share how you made it ?????? I need healthy good recipes.......

My wonderful (he is wonderful today at least) hubby (who is also a great cook) had a very scary brush with death this weekend ....I wont go into all the gory hospital emergency room details......but he has to be on a bland healthy diet and cant drink till his doc gives him the ok !!! Trying telling a Louisiana man he cant drink or eat his spiced up foods and you will see a sad sad face.
We leave for Mexico in two weeks....so as he is pretty depressed (no drinking or eating spicey Mexican food)...told him we will make the best of it...so we are going to be eating very healthy in my house for a while...which means I will have to cook if it is going to be healthy.
So any good recipes that dont have peppery type spices will be appreciated.......

Now I am trying to figure this out...since he cant drink when we go to Mexico does this mean.....
1. I should not drink to show my support
2. Drink enough for the both of us ??????????

I prefer them over a lot of other cuts of meat. We have these weird restaurants here where you can go and get just a huge cut of meat (like 20 ounces or so) and you cook them yourself on a huge grill in the middle of the restaurant, people love it? I guess cooking it yourself kinda defeats the purpose of going out to eat...but oh well. Anyway, they have awesome ribeyes.

That's right buddy, we eat here in this state, I've lived all along the East Coast and have traveled the whole United States and the meat in Iowa is by far the best I have ever had. I just wish they knew how to cook it, that is where all you southern b-quer's come in!!! Gotta go, softball night!

I once had a lady tell me she was a vegetarian, not because she didn't like meat, but because she hated vegetables. BA-DUM-BUM!
