Happy midweek to all!

It's a beautiful day!

I wanted to share my vicious & delicious ROSE jag (blush is SWEET pink wine & ROSE is Dry pink wine and that is the way to keep pink drinks simple as far as what you need to know really) and I hate sweet and love dry!

Anyway, roe-zay (sorry, my phone doesn't have the accent marks for ROSE unless I switch it to French and then send mispelled garble to people all day afterward) but the wine is wonderful and I have been finding some Trader Joe's ones that are great and affordable and which pair well with much!

Posted here are some recent simple meals of mine - from silverbrite salmon to grilled bison steak and black rice and grilled octopus, SMOKED cuttlefish & late night drunken chick pea salad (which is sooooooooooo fu#*^^#^*%ing good) and some cedar paper wrapped striper steak (caught locally) and grilled lobsters with enough red pepper flakes to slay a tiger- but not a lion!!! Smiles. And grilled romaine Ceasar salad & miscellaneous menus.

I hope you all are eating well and that you make your food and drink and smoked treasures on the Lang or little gas machine (like mine) just out of this world!

And share them here!!! Cheers and happy everything! - Leah

And this from my boys (dogs) Voss, and Tabouli:

A day in the life of Leah's dogs...

Wake up in the early morning; to mommy singing ridiculous baby talk songs to us that she makes up as she goes along, in tandem with her giving us our morning massages.

"Mommy make out session" is next; where we head butt/buck her, and kiss and jump on her and snort like baby piglets.

Breakfast of champions! Our dog chow – which is dry dog kibble (with no corn no soy and no wheat); is made of trout, peas, and avocado.

With our dog chow for breakfast, we have fruit & yogurt. Today we had some fresh pineapple, and some plain goat yogurt.

Take a car ride, read theocal steak house's daily marquis. Today's read: CLASSIC COCKTAILS.

As a midday snack, we each had one sprig of arugula, one chick pea, and some avocado.

Today we got our anal glands cleaned out! [emoji]128169[/emoji][emoji]10084[/emoji]️[emoji]128155[/emoji] So fun!

Tuesday's are when we get our baths. Thank God today is Wednesday & we can be like normal dogs!

For lunch we had our plain dog chow but then had 1/2 of an organic fig & some Norwegian pan seared salmon steak flesh once our Mommy ate.

As an after lunch snack, we each had an almond - organic, raw, unsalted.

We will have some dog chow in reward for getting our teeth brushed later this afternoon with a natural, peanut flavored dog toothpaste, and we will also have little bits of our dog chow for the remainder of the day and night, every time we go out and come back in, or every time we do something "good."

Life is precious! And so many people want to come back as one of us. But we? Well we just want to be DINOSAURS!!!!!!!

Nice looking food!! Thanks for the tip on TJ's and the dry Rosé. My wife loves the stuff but all we've been seeing is the sickly sweet kind lately. Heading to TJ's later in the week for charcoal and I'll look for it. Have a great week!

Thank you Andrew!

And I commend your wife's taste!

They have a Bordeaux Rose for $7.99 that is dry and fabulous and beautiful in color!

Enjoy!!! Cheers!!!! - Leah (And lucky you, having access to accent punctuation, as my phone is not cooperating but I am working on it).

Thank you Mummel! And thanks tons Bear! Funny, you'll appreciate this: I have been a New York Strip fan for ages, as far as my favorite cut of steak. Well, yesterday, when using espresso grinds as a dry rub for the bison ribeye, (and then simply drizzling avocado oil and sea salt - once grilled, rested, sliced, and alas plated), I loved how the juices were held in so well, and the crispy coffee-esque edges were so good, and I am now claiming RIBEYE as my favorite cut!

Granted, I cooked it a little longer as to cook the marble parts that aren't throughout the New York usually. Still, even cooked more than my norm, this espresso dusted bison ribeye was the best steak I have eaten this year!

My oh my how we change right? But that makes life fun! Thought you'd enjoy such news! Smiles. Meanwhile, Happy Tuesday to you!!! Cheers! - Leah

Here's a pair I just did on Sunday after the Eagle's game. They were only Select, but were just as good as "Choice".

I know mine is done a little more than you like, but just right for the two of us.

Happy Thursday to all!

I know that I eat the same damn things over & over but there are a couple things - Norwegian salmon, game meat steak, (and my new love of ribeye - especially dusted in coffee) and succulent whole spatchcocked chicken too; and so today it was a salmon day - covered in black pepper and fabulous gray sea salt with herbs de Provence and it was just wonderful!

And too, I adore Bordeaux - particularly Pomerol or French "Merlot" and today am enjoying a blended Bordeaux that is 60% Merlot & it matched the meal really well and I extend a CHEERS to all! Make today delicious! - Leah

Hello group, I just found this group, and after about a 2 year absence with medical problems, I am getting back into smoking.  I love smoking, and wine and other spirits.  I am happy to see this group here.  I have been lurking for the past 2-3 months getting back into the swing and I must say that I am impressed with all that I have seen here.  Leah, especially with your impressed with your amazing posts!!!!  I look forward to all the knowledge displayed from all members.  Soon I hope to be able to post some threads with my smoking ventures.  Steve

Steve! Welcome to the bar! We have a ball here, in this wonderful vino group, and the food and wine and fun stories which people share here are just truly terrific!

Please feel free to post, to share photos, to rant about food or smoking pairings - nobody is graded on what they drink and nobody is snotty or affected and we all learn from each other and it's just a lovely place to share whatever one has savored lately - from libation to plates of simple grilled or smoked fare too!

Thank you for such nice remarks, and here's to healthful new things for you and for all! I look forward to your posts! Happy weekend!!! Cheers! - Leah (Off to a pal's today to spatchcock a chicken)!! Yay!!!!!
