  1. 4 generation This is my Moms side of the family. I have 2 aunts still living, they are both pictured in the middle so I’m 2nd generation , 26 first cousins, although one passed away last year in a plane crash just prior to Thanksgiving
  2. Another big family thanksgiving. Happy to be hanging with my family on this recent TG . Always a good time
  3. Another big family Thanksgiving coming up. Same place, same crowd, average head count 100. I was given the job of making hummus again and on the clean up crew.

    Fish and Seafood

    Living on the beach currently. And a grouper sandwich is my go to when out for lunch or dinner. Think I had 3 over the last couple of weeks
  5. I like the Season brand well enough but have had other brands that have larger filets. I’m partial to sardines that are with bones and skin. Figured the bones are adding some calcium to my diet

    Dinner 2023

    while I didn’t have that much chicken parts in the freezer, I did have a lot of chicken bones which was turned into stock before exiting our home. Being on the beach takes the sting out of the move

    Dinner 2023

    Dinner tonight was oven roasted brisket with my wife, son, his GF and my BIL attending. Sides were a big salad and oven roasted root vegetables. The latter being one of my favorite things to eat.

    Dinner 2023

    I have my chosen knives, maybe more than I need, and a couple of pots and pans picked out to take on this journey. The rest are heading to a storage unit. And chicken thighs are excellent on a smoker. The extra moisture in thighs plays well in that application. As for the move, the beach takes the sting out of leaving my big house on an acre lot. That much land is a rarity where I live in Florida. A somewhat unique neighborhood

    Dinner 2023

    Smoked a few boneless chicken thighs the other day. Have two more to smoke. My smoker was acting like its on its last leg which it is. House is on the market with a contract. Will be temporarily living in a one bedroom condo on Sand Key Florida. This should be interesting
  10. I have some Serrano peppers that need to get used. Was thinking of smoking them for something different
  11. Seeing that the fish has been frozen for some time, I’d suggest you thaw it, portion it and use it in a couple applications over the next few days. I typically like to buy whole sides, but will cut it asap, portion it, hold some out for the next day or two and vac pack the rest for individual meals and freeze. This would be for larger fish like grouper, steelhead etc
  12. You could use a vegetable peeler not to peel but to scrape out the seeds. Some how I acquired an ~ 1/4 “ diam copper tube with half of it cut to use to core vegetables. Probably came from Mexico. I have family there
  13. pickling has always been our GoTo method. My Dad who spent his youth in Mexico City always needed some pickled jalapeños in the fridge to add to what ever he was eating

    Dinner 2023

    Went out for dinner to a little water side restaurant and seafood market not far from the house. 6 oz grouper sandwich with chips and a nice local porter to wash it down with. The food, drink and water views (sunset) were excellent

    Preserved Lemons

    Had some more preserved lemon with tuna salad today. Still doing well. Not even a hiccup
