Cooking Meat With Fire

There is something extremely manly about cooking meat with fire and on Sunday I had that chance with my new grill.

My wife and I had a deal, I bought her a house, she bought me a grill. But since we bought our home in November it was always too cold to BBQ. So when I did get to fire up my new cooking utensil I started grilling everything in sight. Steak. Chicken. Tomatoes. Onion. Zuccini.
Everything tasted awesome. I told Carrie that I want to grill every Sunday. One bite of my steak and I had her convinced.
I think one of my favorite cooking ingredients, especially when using steak, is olive oil. It's the secret to a juicy steak. Guess the secret is out now.
I used a recipe for the marinades. Next time, I'm making my own.
Have I mentioned I love my new cooking utensil?

Catching Up: Working The Holidays

The newscast doesn't take vacation. I'm grateful for my job and I love what I do but I sure don't get a lot of holidays off.

Check out how I spent Christmas Eve.

Catching Up: Man Adventure Videos

In case you didn't read the original post about our "Man Adventure" then I'll sum up. Living in SD, got a job in Utah. Drove across the country with my dad, my son and my cat.

We stopped by Mt Rushmore (or Mountain Rushmore as Tyler called it)

It was such a chore to get Tyler to sleep. Eventually he tells me, "Something is making my eyes close Dada".
