Last Christmas, a vendor gave me and three other co-workers a big
cooler of stuff from Omaha Steaks. Everyone thought it was funny
since I don’t eat steak. I gave some to Jamie and kept some in my
freezer for Jason. There were a couple of things in the cooler that
weren’t steaks. One of which was crab stuffed sole. I decided that
after six months in my freezer, it was time to cook these up. They
weren’t too caloric but they did have HFCS in them. We made baked
them and had them with baked butternut squash and canned green beans.
Truthfully, the squash was the only part of the meal that I enjoyed.
The fish tasted very seafoody. I love seafood so it’s strange that I
thought a strong taste was bad. And the beans, well, they’re from a
My long weekend was filled with little to no home cooked meals. Jason
and I went to the Brickstore for dinner on Friday. I had the Veggie
Gyro (without the yogurt sauce) and a salad. I strong armed Jason
into getting a Turkey Burger. I also had two Hefeweisins. The rest
of the weekend was filled with various other restaurant food and drink
but nothing to write home about.
We did, on Memorial Day, attempt to grill out. Neither Jason nor I
know the first thing about grilling. There is a grill by my pool and
someone had left charoal by it so we just used that and grilled some
steak (for Jason), smart dogs (for me), and some portabello mushrooms.
They all tasted rather charred and not so good. Perhaps the grill
was dirty (dirty with Lord knows what on it.) But the best part was
that there were these random ears of corn that had been on the grill
for a long time. I don’t know who’s they were, but we ate them.
Gross! But delicious.
