    I will be eating French Toast with sausages and baked potatoes in about an hour while watching Greece - Korea.

    My 2 homecured coppas are only 2% weightloss away from being done. It's been 2.5 months since I stuffed them and hung them to dry. Can't wait to slice them up

    I TiVo In Wine Country and there is a piece on Cyrus in the latest edition. Ah, good memories.

    Did they describe how to make the deeply flawed wagyu shortribs that are no good now that Kyle has left? [​IMG]

    I saw that whilst still working there. Nice little piece!

    That went on the menu like 2 days before I quit. What is the flaw? Just hoisin-overkill?

    My mother, who was with us the last time we ate there, described the short ribs as flaccid, a good description. The hoisin was also overkill. Did they change the cooking as well?

    Not that I know of. 48 hours at... 59.9? Or something. You'd probably have a better guess as to temp, with your research into the subject.

    My house has a couple blueberry plants out front. I saw that some are more or less ripe now. Tastes great, nice and slightly warm from the afternoon sun. Wow, can't wait until they are completely ripe.

    The new North/Clybourn Whole Foods in Chicago. It's not really new, since they rebuilt and opened a while back, but I had never been to it before. Christ, that place is huge. It's like the size of a Costco. Parking garage connected for only WF customers. And it is cavernous inside. Huge selection, great stuff too. The produce was looking really good. And their prepared foods section is bigger and way nicer than it was before. It is probably the biggest Whole Foods in the country.

    The Chicagoland mothership. My local WF had phenomenal white peaches. And absolutely fabulous, perfectly fresh and pristine bluefish. I am also enjoying some bison grass vodka on the rocks right now.

    Yep. It's a great store too.


    Making me happy: We have this huge Taste of Randolph festival. The last three days, I've cleaned almost 900 pounds of skirt steak. I thought tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday that I was going to be grilling AND assembling and running the stand alone. Turns out, all I'm doing is grilling. Three days outside, grilling skirt steak, and staring at all the hotties that partake in Taste of Randolph. NICE!

    Anyone who lives in the Chicago area should come out to Taste of Randolph this weekend and eat some of my delicious foods. Oh, and make sure to say hi. I'll be the fat guy in the white sox hat running the grill.

    Bought a rack of lamb, several pounds of veal, and a few steaks. Had to stock up before the stupid g20 summit makes access to the market a pain in the ass.

    Gonna have to figure out what to do with the lamb. I've never actually cooked a rack before.

    Besides a few prepositions and filler words, I did not understand a word of this post. Do we have to live in the same village as you to know what it is you're talking about here? [​IMG]

    LOL, reminds me of when you see someone from West Virginia interviewed on national TV and there's subtitles for what they're saying.
