Finally got the cream siphon to do it's job - brought one up that I found at VV's for $3.99 - neglected to notice it was missing a gasket.

 Good morning. It is 14°C in beautiful downtown Little Current and my main goal for the rest of the day is to find a way to stay warm. IMG_0216.thumb.JPG.07f6c2f6f71d2962d5617204b7de6d93.JPG

 

 My dinner last evening. After the rain put the kibosh on any idea of lighting the little green egg, I reheated some yorkies, some gravy and had that along with some leftover steak and some of Kerry's bacon jam. 

 

 This morning, knowing there was a gain some white bread in the house, I wanted nothing more than a poached egg on toast.  I was so cold even that I managed to make a mess of, however, it tastes just fine. 

 

Strangely, the "sourdough" made rather miserable toast even in the CSO. Barely coloured and dried almost all the way through, it was extremely disappointing.

 I have a couple of loads of laundry to do this morning and I feel the urge to bring some order to the kitchen.   Other than that I have no clear plans for the day.

 

I see the sky is beginning to brighten so perhaps it will warm up a bit soon.

Sorry about your disappointing weather, I do wish I could send you about 25ºF of mine.

It will be in the mid 90s today, too much for me, the faint of heart.

Well, it's 16°C and overcast here at the moment but it should warm up to 29°C once the sun comes out.  I hope you get a little warming as well.

It's the same 14 degrees here, and raining with a forecast high of 16.  We are under a heavy rain warning.  Where is summer?

 You know how @Tri2Cook's  signature says something about when the gorilla gets tired. Today the gorilla won.  I ran out of steam considerably sooner than I ran out of ambition.   Got the laundry done. Got the kitchen kind of organized. Made a frittata from bits I found to use up:

 But I think that is as far as I will go today.  Happy to give the gorilla bragging rights this time.

We're getting fits and starts of monsoonal rain but it is suppoed to get up to 34C this afternoon. Not my first choice in weather.

 

Frittata looks very tasty.

Well it has made it to 22°C much to my astonishment!

Hoping the rug rat will enjoy the frittata. I made it with a view to either feeding Kerry who was trapped at the hospital or feeding the rug rat tonight.  Like all kids she's always hungry when she gets home.

I swear every winter (because I do not deal well with cold weather) that I will not complain when it gets hot.

 

This is about the time every year I break that resolution into small, small pieces. Only 91F right now, but that's about 8-10 degrees cooler than yesterday, when it was, as an old friend was wont to say, "hotter than two rats f***ing in a wool sock."

We decided to repeat the Little Italy tonight with the Northern Harvest - curious to see the difference with the smoother than Rittenhouse - enjoyed the smoothness!

Max's top blade steak - sous vide 24 hours then on the BGE - you could cut it with a fork.

Thanks for having the courage to post it.

 My first experience with this particular cut. I hope it won't be my last!
