Those of you working folk have been waiting for today all week; especially it it’s payday!
For myself, Friday is pretty much like every other day of the week; ‘ceptin’ Tuesday is when Remus publishes his Woodpile Report.
Do yourself a favor, and check out his fresh perspective of politics, science, and life every Tuesday.
It’s cloudy today here, keeping the temps a little lower; at least out of the hundreds anyway.
I am eagerly awaiting my shipment from Wal-Mart dot com. Since I did not renew my Sam’s membership, with which I had free shipping, I found out that Wal-Mart now does that for a minimum of $35 order. We’ll see.
They have already dropped the ball, as I ordered in time for next day delivery, but instead am getting it a day later. Whatever. They will hear about it.
I did receive my replacement stove control, and installed it this morning.This is the second control on the burner I have replaced in four years. Of course, this burner is the one we use the most. It just seems a poor design to deteriorate so quickly at $25 a pop. The tell-tale sign is that after the burner is kicked on, it can and will turn on inexplicably to high, and normally requires shutting off to kill the burner. That ain’t right, so another one today…good thing it’s easy to install.
I did trim and clean my ribeye roast yesterday. This one was a little different, but ended up with several nice slabs of steak, and the famous ribeye cap cut, which joins the other in the freezer.
With some of the leftover chunks and smaller steaks, I made ribeye guisada last night; a favorite of mine. It takes so long to cook, and requires flour tortillas to properly eat it, that I rarely do it any more.
I have gotten to the point where I only buy raw flour tortillas, and cook them as needed. The raw ones taste more like the ones abuelita used to make. I have not mastered the art of making flour tortillas from scratch; or corn for that matter, although I have a press to do to. A press is a gimmick; a real master of Mexican foods does not use a press, but rather a nice, heavy, cutting board to flatten the dough balls, then a rolling pin; maybe.
Anyway, the ribeye roast guisada was delicious with some homemade pintos, topped with cheese.
I used all my 8 1/2″ Food Saver bags to freeze the rest.
I must also put away the rest of my grocery haul today; bacon, chicken, and sausage will need to be stored.
OK, that’s done…now I wait for the grocery delivery.
Have a great weekend
