On a farm , there is always some to do , or needs to be done . Yesterday I mowed the road sides , I try and keep them looking like our yard , it looks so good , short cut road sides right up tp the corn or beans - Damn people always throwing beer bottles out in them along with everything else - Hit a tire one time - Killed the motor on the tractor before I could get the bush hog raised up ! So when I see a car coming I stop and let it go by before mowing again - I have seen stuff fly out from the bush hog 50 feet or more , out into the field or shooting it across the road . |
I seen this car coming and stopped - They were driving slow - So I could see them pretty well - they were 2 younger gals - really , they looked like SD's JD Gal - !! I stopped mowing again ! and they slowed down and stopped in front of the tractor - I thought - What now ? they got out of there car and I shut off the mow and tractor - I figured they must be lost and needed directions - I was wrong - LOL They said they were tried of sitting around there house and decided to take a drive - They work at a Fitness gym as instructors and have not been to work for ever because of the c-19 . They wanted to know how I stayed so fit ? They were amazed at my straight up and down build - perfect tan to boot - then they asked my age . I told them and they both said at the same time -- NO WAY ! and said I was kidding them ! I said sadly enough - that was my age . No way was there reply again ! I asked what made them think I would be kidding them ? They said that they have many at the gym half my age that is not even close to my looks and build ! Asked if I had any fitness advise for them to pass along to there students at class ? Told them I just get up early , work hard and the key was lots of curls ! 12 oz. curls to be exact , LMAO
Damn virus ! They asked if they could get a few pictures with me up real close and I had to tell them that was not a good idea that I practice the social distance guild lines ! They said when this is over that they would be back for them pictures ! I told them I would be looking forward to that day
So TN and 6-7 -- that's my entry for your BS contest ! : grin2:

The family tree is really confusing here.

Do you want me to escort him to the WS?

I marinate my brisket with lime juice.
And that is all the secret ingredients you are going to get out of me!

I think $16 an hour was fair.

Good Evening Peeps! |
Are you all going to miss me when I have to clear this room and unplug my puter?
Mister suggested that I want the ceiling re-done too.
Well? Since he suggested it. He really said, "So, I suppose you want the ceiling done too?"
The previous owners did a shoddy job on the ceiling in the office.

Yep TN! |
Damn good looking brisket!

You only had one good laugh at one good post?? I'm crestfallen. |
Sprinkler guy came and did his repair work--looks like I might have a greener lawn soon. Finally. We cooked Pork more-or-less Vindaloo while he was here; he came in to get some water and said he had been smelling it outside (windows open in the summer) and getting hungrier and hungrier. It wasn't too bad; we usually use chicken, so had to change the recipe a bit to account for a different meat. And my son changes things every time he cooks. Marinated it in lime juice, added tamarind instead of vinegar which is usually used with pork (cause I just like tamarind better), some charnuska, a little asafoetida and of course fenugreek (which appears to be a go-to spice for him) while it cooked, to the recipe's list of typical vindaloo spices...it was pretty good.
Probably not as good as your brisket--actually, I'm sure it wasn't. Does Mocha hang around the smoker the whole time it is in use??
|07-02-2020 07:14 PM|
By popular demand! Ok, maybe it was just one, single demand, but hey, who's counting, right? |
I did go back a few pages, even had a good laugh at one post, but no way am I going back a month's worth.
Anyhoo, today I smoked the third brisket of my illustrious smoking career, and I have to say, my prayers were answered and it actually came out edible and most importantly, it received the Mrs. TN seal of approval, which is pretty much all that matters.
Here ya go, Ken.
The brisket, ready to go in the smoker...for a rub I went (mostly) Texas style today; coarse Kosher salt, coarse black pepper, some celery seeds (saw that in a video), and a hint of garlic powder
Said smoker, ready for action. I even cleaned the glass door last time I used it...not sure why, because first smoke, it gets dirty again.
Mocha, of course, was outside helping me...or, was she out there in the hope I'd drop the brisket on the patio so she could abscond with it?
Well he didn't drop the meat, I may as well go up in the shade and watch him from there
Here's the brisket at 160 degrees internal temp, when it was ready to be wrapped in pink butcher paper, then returned to the smoker till it hit 200 - then it gets put into a cooler for at least an hour to rest.
8 pounds of goodness right there...I used a pellet smoker tube this time and it made a difference, there was a nice, smoky flavor all throughout the meat. I was so worried it would end up dry like the last time, not sure if it was the butcher paper or what but it came out nice and juicy.
And that's all there is. Maybe I'll do another post Labor Day with some ribs, who knows?
Oh, and I did want to mention that a local chef dropped by after smelling the smoke from my brisket.
The chef took my cell number, in case he has a difficult smoking or grilling job, or maybe a BBQ contest.
He's been a chef 25 years and has never seen a brisket cooked like this to perfection, from a self trained individual, using an electric smoker
He was in awe of my culinary prowess!
You guys didn't believe that for a second, did you?
I crack me up.

Looks like just about any other kid on "bring your kid to work" day--bored. |
I don't think I'd seen the full extent of your office (just the window you gawk at the lawn guys through)--that's quite the office for just you! Or is that somewhere else in the building?

Here are a few more PICís of my boy at work |
|07-02-2020 03:00 PM|
Way to go SP you are really gonna refinish those walls just like you said.....way to go !!! |
Hoss came to work with me this afternoon.....he easily found the new cookie drawer!!!
|07-02-2020 02:32 PM|
The strippers left. |
They weren't even cute enough to salivate over.
Two walls down, one to go!

Yup, with a stripper in the house Mister will probably never notice any green things in the food you cook. |
That was really a good pick up AJ!!! Tip of the hat to you!

Daisy on the other hand swims like a otter , in fact when a thunderstorm is happening and she is trapped outside her safe place is swimming circles in the pool till we notice.|

Bug, I had the same experience with a little Staffybull. We were all swimming at Donner Pass, taking a break and my dog just refused to come in the water with us. All dogs can swim I had heard. Not true. We playfully tossed him in the water with us. He immediately sunk, as you say, like a stone. We were all looking where he had gone under waiting for him to emerge. Ended up swimming down |
to retrieve him. He was on the bottom waiting. Just unbelievable. He did not forgive us the rest of the way home. Like, I will never trust you again. I really learned a lesson there.
Good morning everyone. And, btw, things have not gotten any better here, but worse. It's a dark cloud that has settled above our house and it won't leave.

I stopped pushing anyone in the water after that--I pushed you in before I pushed poor Colt in--but you got out of the water faster that anyone I'd every seen. A hidden talent no doubt.
