Here in the place where I live, we are preparing for the Independence Day holiday and the lawbreaking neighbors are busily shooting off their illegal fireworks. They do this every year and even though shooting off privately-owned fireworks is illegal here, they do it anyway. I am sure I will soon be seeing all the notices in the newspaper about all the kids that lost an eye or a finger from this activity. The parents do not seem to care. They defend their lawlessness in the name of “Their Rights” as Americans.
I learned something about cooking today. I learned how to take the toughest possible cut of beef and make it as tender as if it were a chef-prepared filet mignon.
The process begins by excessively tenderizing the beef cut (Best that the cut is one inch or more in thickness) with a Jaccard meat tenderizer and then grilling the meat (Steak or London Broil or thick slices of top round roast) at a temperature of 450 to 500-degrees for 4 or 5 minutes per side. If you don’t know what a Jaccard meat tenderizer is you can google “Jaccard Tenderizer” and find a picture and a description.
If you can learn this technique, you will enjoy some very tender and flavorful steaks at much less cost than if you purchased the more expensive steak cuts.
Since I am trying to lose a few pounds of bodyweight, I discovered today that ham is probably one of the least fattening meats you can buy. It is also good for protein. So for the next few days it is going to be ham and eggs for breakfast for me.
I went to the VA today for my six month routine checkup and got a clean bill of health.
That is about all that happened to me today so now it is time for bed and we will see what tomorrow brings if, in deed, tomorrow comes.
