crazy snacks & BBQ Grill
A Bar in NYC the night before Prohibition began!
(Third attempt at posting tonight, three different entries also.)
Tonight I noticed we had Celery and one Carrot about to give up waiting to be eaten. I cleaned the bad off the celery and cut it into small cross cuts. Then I cross sliced the carrot. I added a ½ cup of beef broth and a table spoon of brown sugar. And microwaved the conglomeration until the carrots were tender.
I ate the broth with crackers after eating the carrot and celery.
That was about the craziest snack I can remember making, Sherry even ate some and smiled. Night before last I made Apple sauce. I removed only the seeds, peeling stayed on.
I spent most of the day working on a BBQ grill that was headed for the recycler. I have it about ready. I had to manufacture some parts, but I think it is going to work well. I fixed both snap lighters, sanded and painted some bad parts with hi-temp paint.
I was in Lowes to get some white marble or lava rock scraps to line the walls here at the back of the house. I looked at a grill like this one and the price tag was about $900. I was shocked, folks pay that for a BBQ grill? I must live under a rock, I thought $100 would be high. I am used to buying the $12 ones that use regular Charcoal. Of course the cheapo has no bells and whistles. LOL
WE do not cook out much. BEEF, hamburgers and hot dogs fit the grill better than chicken, and we eat mostly chicken and veggies. I do LOVE the smell as well as the beef on a grill though!
