In my 20s I would eat a ton of canned tuna and herring...plain, nothing on them.
Now I don't think I could get through one can without quitting. lol

I am in my senior years and still can't get enough of sardines. I like 'em in sandwiches with swiss and sprouts on toasted cracked wheat sourdough, with cherry tomatoes and olives.. I think I'm hungry!

Buried under this mess was iceberg lettuce, a cut up carrot, about a quarter cup of smoked ham chunks, merinated chicken breast chunks, some radish, some fake crab meat and some spinach.

To the side, garlic toast with a bit of extra sharp cheddar topping.

To drink was spring water in a ceramic cup.

They grow on a long stalk. They look alike but not really tiny cabbages. Anything that smells that bad (like boiling dirty socks) while cooking has to be good for ya

Very nice chance!

Sorry no pictures, but yesterday we visited the campsite of our future in-laws annual camping trip. My son said, just bring a box of "Bubba Burgers". I made up a container of pickled red onion, and we were on our way.

We had a nice day of pleasant conversation, some swimming and hiking. Since I wasn't driving, I spent the day in conversation, and wine partaking :)

Life is good! :)

Happy Labor Day! :)

Today Shop Rite had Top Round Beef for London Broil on sale with a coupon for $2.99 a pound in a two piece family pack. So I got about 4.5 pounds of beef. They were fairly thick, I'm sure that a LOT of people like them that way. But not me, so I filleted them, and cut them in half.

I cooked one up tonight on a grilling pan on top of the stove because we are in the middle of a 1.5 inch rainstorm. The rest I put into about 6 separate zip lock freezer baggies. Even at that, it was more than my daughter and I wanted, so the dog had a beefy meal. :) Happy camper he is!

I seasoned it with a coating of olive oil, and some Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning. I cooked it to 145F and let it rest for 10 minutes. It was a little dry, but not bad, I think next time, I'll try 135F.

Yeah Gary, it was a little overdone, even for me. I use a digital thermometer, and rarely cook steak, so I guess I'll go with a lower temp in the future.

Burgers and hot dogs for Labor Day this year. Mrs. Fixers burger said "moo" and her hot dog was barely scorched. She loved it.
My burger could have been used as a small manhole cover and hot dog looked like a segment of bicycle inner tube. Perfect.

Served on toasted white bread with rrrrrufles potato chips. Sweet tea for her, cran-grape juice for me.
