Two days ago I had a pretty awesome idea for a recipe and wanted to share it with you. I know this isn’t a cooking blog, but hey, it’s a part of my life. I remember going to this friends house about 5 years ago and hearing how he cooked this flank steak by burying it with coals under the sand overnight. Anyways, it was awesome so I decided to try my own variation. After searching all of the internet for recipes and not finding anything I realized I would have to improvise.
- I bought a $30 piece of beef brisket. This may not seem like a lot to you but I almost never buy meat and $30 is a lot for me. It was almost 7 lbs and came with a fancy steak rub that can be seen on the right hand side.
2. I marinated it for about 6 hours in fresh squeezed lime juice (4 limes) and 10 cloves of garlic. Flip every hour.
People just don’t have the respect that they used to.
This is from some facebook junkmail forward thing and I decided to live a little and fill one out. It’s probably the last one that I’ll ever do.
1. I have never filled out one of these forward things and to date have prided myself in doing so
2. I have been skydiving and thought it was boring.
3. My life seems perfectly normal while I’m living it but when I step back and consider that I have 4 kids before the age of 27 and am considering a 5th it seems like I live in some comedy that I would never consider renting at blockbuster.
4. I have a container of my and the kids fingernails that I’ve been accumulating for the last 2 years. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet.
5. I floss 3 times a day and have the worse teeth of anyone that I know.
6. If we were living in medieval or caveman times I would be dead. I have had cavities in every tooth, had surgery for a disabling hernia, have had laser correction surgery done twice because I am legally blind, have had surgery on both of my shoulders because they would dislocate (at times) almost every day all before the age of 25. My only shot would be to become some sort of powerful manipulative leader. I guess I would have been ok.
7. I spent almost 5 years obsessing about climbing Everest but I think I’m 99% over it now. Continue reading
This was taken at Eric and Julia’s house during our 3 week stay in KY.

I read this letter and could associate on so many levels. It’s pretty funny. I love whole foods. In our neck of the woods its (un)lovingly referred to as “whole paycheck” because of the impact upon your pocketbook. Today, a buddy and I were sitting there, having coffee and bread and he was telling me how Costco bought a building for one of their stores and actually ripped out the ceiling so that it felt more like a warehouse, to fit their image. I said (half) jokingly that I’ll bet Whole Foods ripped out the entire infrastructure so that they could replace it with “green” and recycled building materials. Anyways, you can read this letter and many more like it at McSweeneys.net.
AN OPEN LETTER TO WHOLE FOODS SUPERMARKETS.
August 13, 2004
Dearest Whole Foods supermarkets,
In retrospect, I feel like I knew how this would end before I even met you. I mean, seriously, your very name distinctly implies that other foods are somehow incomplete and inferior by comparison. I should have realized then how spoiled you were. Even before you started taking me on as your sugar daddy, you were already more spoiled than week-old pesticide-free arugula. Continue reading
