yup, biggest little improvement i've found in technique is just making sure to take strained cooked pasta on the side, make sauce in a separate pot then do the high heat 30-45 seconds in a pan together with a bit more olive oil. makes it a lot richer and just seems restaurant quality.

Football steak soft tacos.

Started by seasoning a flap steak with Chef Merito’s then marinading it in beer, sliced onion, sliced orange, and sliced limes for a few hours.

i removed the sliced onion and the juice into a skillet to sauté them down. Later, i added a tomato to the onion sauté.

i reseasoned and seared the steak on the kettle using Kingsford Mesquite.

Served simply with cheese, guacamole, taco sauce, the steak and onion/tomato mixture.

Cheers!

I don’t quite get what you mean, are you saying you have the losing taste and smell symptom of covid? If so, sorry to hear.

no, my days are just very repetitive. im home with kids to watch every day since theyve been out of school for about 9 months out of the last year with a short break when they were in school.

restaurants are pretty crap around here and mostly closed anyway. gyms are closed, so my metabolism is really slowing down.

just tired of eating a lot to kill time and little reason to go outside/exercise.

no politics, but this lockdown has seriously f##ked with single parents. i know some of them relied on school for their kids in the daytime so they could work. im fine, but it is tearing some people's lives apart.

Had a nice Saturday supper. Oysters on the half shell with cilantro chutney and cucumber mignonette for an appetizer with a sazerac. A pesto and caramelized onion pizza with broiled oysters and garlic butter. Each time we were down to the crust of each slice that hunk of crust was smashed into the garlic butter and oyster liquor that overflowed into the pan. Delicious
