This will be kind of like when you look up a kebab recipe online - you don’t get to see the list of ingredients right away. No, first you have to suffer through the family’s history, how they came here from the old country and made their way in through Canada, how wonderful grandma’s cooking was and how the aroma just brought you back to when you were a kid. Then there’s a history of lamb and where to buy it - you can settle for purchasing it at Sam’s but it’s sooo much more authentic if you buy it at a halal market. By the time you get to the actual recipe you’re too tired to cook and up ordering out. Sound familiar?
So the adventure started yesterday - a ten hour drive from Texas with a three and a half hour diversion to Stillwater, OK to visit my wife’s friend. Mexican at Mona’s Cafe. As usual I had plate envy - my dish gets three out of five, but my wife’s gets five out of five. Still, I think our version of Chorizo hash is better. Then a stop at Tractor Supply to purchase snacks for the remainder of the trip. Originally was proud of myself for not bringing any, but it’s a long ride…
Good music a must. Wife’s play list available upon request. Anyone ever notice that almost anything by Aerosmith can be used as a strip club anthem?
Stop in Lincoln by early evening for food. Fresh brussels sprouts, rib eyes, shrimp…
Arrive at cabin. I invited another member on this site and his wife for Saturday, but sadly he could not make it.
Three bed rooms - s shame to let them go to waste.
Platte River in the background:
Dinner went well. Wife prepares vegetables -
And then I grill onions, brussels sprouts, rib eyes and shrimp:
We’ll need energy for all the walking we plan to do at the show.
Planned activities for the weekend include but are not limited to the show, a visit to the Union Station Museum, the Dyson Castle, and the Montz Motorcycle Museum.
More to follow.
