I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Two Flamin’ Beauties!!

… a pair of thick cut rib steaks, one for yours truly, one for Tiff! Seasoned with Barberian’s, grilled over hardwood lump charcoal at a very high heat … a few minutes is all it takes … be sure to have your fork and steak knife ready, it’s that quick!

Recipe for Disaster

Watched the show last night – 1st time ever – certainly not willingly, but with no necessary arm-twisting. Know very little about it to be honest with you. But I do know that yesterday’s televised winner was to have his or her product available in stores this morning – in ALL Loblaws stores … and let me tell you folks – that’s a shitload of stores!! And I didn’t go shopping this morning, I went this afternoon and as you can see from the picture below, the set aside area and ready to go bunker was empty. The store manager took time to investigate and respond to my query. He was very kind, polite and understanding of my frustration (unlike the many indifferent employees of this company – pretty sure I blogged about their clock in – clock out & pick-up a paycheque lackadaisical work ethic before), hell … I could tell he was none too happy as well. And I was one step ahead of him when he mentioned that if their shipment hadn’t arrived, chances are all stores were in the same (sinking) boat. Poor Galen – you must feel like you’ve been kicked in the gonads with this public relations gaffe!! Oh, and since I have your ear … your decision to discontinue PC Memories of Lyon still has me scratching my head … you pissed off MANY 4 peppercorn sauce loving customers. I’m sure it was one of the top selling Memories brand items you’ve ever sold?! Take some advice from a guy who knows a thing or two about more than just one or two things … and bring it back pronto – no questions asked … don’t let Dave Nichol have the last laugh, ’cause trust me I know he’s rolling in the (your empty) aisles and howling now!! 😆

can’t say I didn’t try Tiffany K

gone but not forgotten – you’re in steak heaven now ole friend … RIP

labour daze and ribeyez

Ribeye steaks … although at a smidgen over 3 inches thick, perhaps roasts would be appropriate. Haven’t been grilling as much as I’d like too, as much as I should … nothing like a 3 day holiday week-end and a last kick at the summer-can to remedy that. Picked up these 2 Sterling Silver® (premium meat – top 12% of grain fed cattle) beauties at my not so local Sobeys. A few pics (and the omission of beer is purely accidental, rest assured its presence was prominent, lol) … enjoy!!

Pepper rubbed – patiently waiting …

The first kiss of the grill (look how thick they are) …

So far, so good …

Getting their char on – LOVE that …

… I think we’re done folks …

1 steak (perfect medium rare, don’t ya think?) sliced ‘n braided plated

Grill toasted and garlic buttered French Loaf …

And my plate (served with my grilled baby portabello, sweet onion, poblano medley) …
