Well Happy Thursday Great Smoking Cookies and Here's To Today!
So many of us can weep when weather turns foul.
And/or get down when something exciting isn't yet happening in business, love, food meals or whatever it is.
YET, if we have something to eat, and something to drink, we indeed are so lucky!
Yesterday it was "just me" (husband on the road) and so I seared a simple ostrich steak (my favorite food on earth, and maybe cobia fish is next), and fanned it - nice and rare in the middle like ahi tuna - over salad and drank a wonderful wine!
When the washing machine repair man came by and fixed our appliances, I then insisted that he try some ostrich steak and he enjoyed it!
We ended up having this spectacular conversation about a myriad of fish!
Then I ate a bison steak at night (sloppy quickie plating, as I was not planning on even doing it really) but it was delicious!
And then today I grilled bluefish that was superb!
And paired with Whitehall Lane's "Tre Leoni" red (which I love) and some grilled okra salad!
And I did realize, that if you have food, and wine, and something to smoke, grill, sauté, and eat - and then someone to share all that with - EVEN if it's forcing it on the repair man and/or sharing it on a smoker site too (smiles) but life is a happy thing. Food is a happy thing. And wine is a happy thing.
Here is to that!
If I have made even a tiny "better" bit into your day, how lucky am I!
Cheers! - Leah
