Since everyone else apparently gets a journal, maybe I should claim some space too... 

I'm just another schmo that has a lot to say about things that most nobody cares about.

I don't know about any of that... but there WILL be dinner... 

So what do we have here? 

Sunday Cooking: Tequila and Lime strip steak with peppers and onions and a homemade pineapple and mango salsa. (Marinate was tequila, lime, soy sauce, cumin, brown sugar, garlic, and cilantro) (No filter... marinate allowed it to get a nice char around the outside)

But what to drink? Hm... Blueberry lemonade mixed with a splash of Jose Cuervo, Coconut Rum and Absolut Citron.  It packs a punch but only a small splash to keep the lemonade the main taste.

how you cook it?

I cut into threes... 

GF does not like a lot of garlic or cilantro so I went a little bit light.  This was for 1 3/4 lbs of strip steak 

  • 2 Cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1 tsp of cumin 
  • 1/4 Soy
  • 4 TBSP of Brown Sugar 
  • 3/4 cup of Tequila 
  • 3/4 cup if lime juice
  • clump of minced cilantro 

Take the above and mix the bejeesus out of it until the brown sugar is dissolved in the mix. 

Get a ziplock bag and toss in your raw steaks with the mix for a nice hour... hour and a half... (All I had time for as I got a late start - normally I would have done that for a few hours so the mixture could REALLY soak in and break down some of the fibers in the meat.)  Get the grill to a nice smoky heat.  I grilled on high and lowered to a medium high on all three burners. Baste every now and then with extra marinate leftover from the bag.  You are only flipping the steak once.  Cook each side to desired taste.  Here is the important thing... let your steak stand when it comes off the grill for a good 5-10 minutes and with a little pat of butter smeared on it.  (That's a trick I picked up from the steakhouses.)

Salsa?

  • Three mangos diced
  • 1/3 a pineapple diced. 
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 Plum tomato diced
  • salt 
  • 1/3 red onion diced
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper diced
  • 3 pieces of cilantro diced.

Mix well and let it sit. 

Peppers and Onions? 

  • 1/2 a sweet white onion 
  • Mix of green, yellow, red and orange bell peppers
  • TBSP of sugar
  • olive oil 

Heat your pan, olive oil in, get that nice and hot... perfect.  Add in your mix of peppers and onions.  Let it start to cook. Add in sugar to help caramelize the mixture.  Eventually it will break down and get a nice browning to them.

Serve... amazing...

I have been selling comics and toys and things like that for about twenty years since high school.  I realized real quick that I could sell comics and stuff I no longer wanted and get more money selling it than trading it in to the comic store.  I was selling on the Prodigy message boards in 1995 and was on eBay by 1998.   In fact if anyone on the boards bought any copies of Shi #1 autographed by Billy Tucci from a guy on Long Island in the 90's over the Prodigy Message Board... that was me.  Yes, they were really signed... The store owner bought too many after a signing in his store... I bought each book in mass quantity on what turned out to be about $5 each I think... I sold each copy for $25.  Yay capitalism. 

Do I have a Passport? Yes...   although I have not used it as much as I wish I have.  

Fun Fact... Last time I left the country I was detained on the way back in.  

Fun Fact II... US Customs officials go berserk as you take pictures of them as they are yelling at you.

Why were you detained?

They don't tell you.  I was told that I was detained for a random search.

I believe that I might have been flagged for an earlier incident in 2005.  I hitchhiked out of Hurricane Katrina.  My family and friends arranged for me to pick up a one way ticket back to New York flying out of Memphis.  Think of the time period and that did not go over too well once I arrived at the airport.   

My brother, who at the time shared the same legal address as me, had also been detained.  He decided to play poker in Montreal and took too much cash with him over the border.  He was searched. 

So there are a couple of reasons leading up to me being flagged crossing back into the United States in 2011 from Canada.   Since 2011 I have not been out of the country.  I have had too much going on to really go on vacation and leave the country.

So I've alluded to the ongoing war against the wasps... and I believe the war is over.  

I did many a shovel strike into the earth pouring chemicals and bleach into it. 

Today I yanked out the rotted stump and roots of something long buried and the remains of a now gelatinous mass around it.  There were two strays that flew at me and I hit one with the broom (reflex - trust me, no skill) and as it was stunned to the ground I stomped it and slid my foot. As that happened his wingman stung my ankle and I smacked it dead.  I think that is about 6-7 stings over the course of the week.  War over and the flies are feasting on the remains of the hive on the lawn.

So because I yanked out part of the cement rockwall... I had to start digging to replace it with a new wall I will build. Then I found this... 

It's cool.  It's a spoil of war. I want to keep it.  So how do I clean it up?  I can make out a 1966 Matchbox stamp on it and miraculously the stickers are in tact.  According to the online guide and based on the wheel type, it was produced from 1966-1969.  I am also putting this in plastic crack and tagging a couple of guys here that might know what to do.

Kind of cool that this was buried in the ground for at least 35+ years... most likely 40-45 years...
