    Default The weather was . . . . .

    .. . . . so perfect, Spouse and I just had to charcoal grill some
    chicken breasts Scored a buy at $1.09/lb for the chicken breasts
    (with bones & skins). The sun is bright and the skies are clear even
    though the temperature is deceivingly warm (currently at 45F), it's
    great to get outside and not need a winter coat Definitely seems a
    lot warmer than the gauge indicates. More chicken salad soon to come!

    Weather is beautiful here, too.... close to 70 degrees. I think we have
    seen the last frost of the season so I got the ferns and other plants
    out of the garage and gave them a good watering and feeding. Cleaned a
    bunch of pine needles off the roof and started cleaning up some
    flower/vegetable beds in the back yard. Then we pruned back some palms
    that had a lot of damage this winter when the temps hit record lows.
    I'm hoping they recover but I am not optimistic.

    In a bit... I have two rib-eye steaks for the grill and we'll have
    seasoned baked potato wedges and and a salad with that. The boneless
    steaks were on sale for $3.99 a pound and I got some about 2 inches
    thick and about 16 ounces for me (rare), and some 1 inch thick and
    about 8 ounces for her (med-well). I hope they taste as good as they look!

    Wasn't the weather today fantastic!! Such a nice day to encourage the
    upcoming Spring season (for the Northern Hemisphere). Alas, I didn't
    take any photos to share, not to mention the grilling is already done
    :/ The chicken breasts were straight out of the package onto the grill,
    bottom side down, then the raw top side was sprinkled with my favorite
    rub - a flour shaker works rather well for this task, especially when
    some of the holes are drilled to a larger size/aperture. Oh oh! I
    forgot to mention Spouse made hamburgers patties to grill, too! The
    finished products weren't anything special to write about or photograph,
    other than to say the weather was grand enough to cook outside

    The temperature outdoors in the bright sun definitely felt a lot warmer
    than the 45F reported by a local online site. Sure beats the wicked
    winter that's been around for much too long!

    Don't be sure and tempt Fate!!! There's usually always a late-winter
    storm someplace ( Hopefully that won't happen, eh!

    Ohhhh, your ribeye steaks sound divine, especially the rare one <VBG>.
    Very good idea to use the thicker steak to cook rare and the
    not-so-thick steak to medium-well. I bet they both get done just-right
    with about the same cooking time that way ???

    I remember those days when I lived in Michigan. It didn't matter if
    there was two feet of snow on the ground, if the sun was out and it
    was "mild" - I was out walking around in my bermuda shorts soaking up
    the rays.

    You folks are making me envious. I am heading to NM in about a week,
    and will be bringing my charcoal grill back with me. Wish I had it
    now, cause Andronicos has some lovely looking salmon on sale this week
    and I bet it would be great on the grill.

    Still...I am getting spring fever, so it might be salmon and asparagus
    for me this weekend. And tomorrow, I am heading to one of the
    glorious farmers markets around here, to see what other spring produce
    I can find to round things out.

    This was definitely that sort of late-winter day It seemed and felt
    a lot warmer than it truly was - such a grand day, too!

    And I'm envious, too! No farmers' markets in my neck of the woods until
    Mother's Day weekend at the earliest, if even that! The salmon & 'green
    stuff' (cough cough - giggle) sounds really good! Especially the latter
    (not!) since it's in season now, eh?! I understand truly fresh
    asparagus is really good stuff :P~~~ At least I usually know how to cook
    it!!!! ;D

    Sky, what green stuff????

    Have look at Central Queensland Au
    rivers are peaking 17 metres above normal in a flood ( that's over 50ft)

    looks like the drought might be over for a few months though

    Yah! Pretty much the same in Texas. I just pulled up a bunch of wild
    spring onions as they are fixin' to bloom and will lose their flavor.
    They are much larger than normal this year due to all the lovely winter
    rain!

    Spring is just around the corner. I really want to grill. Sad fact
    is that the last month or so I haven't really been able to eat solid
    food without a lot of pain. My braces (wires) have shifted and one
    side sticks in my cheek, and the other side sticks in my tongue.
    I've used wax but food disolves it and the wires poke through. I go
    back to ortho on Monday so tonight I've pulled out the top wires
    completely.

    Good part is that living on just soup has resulted in a drop of 10
    pounds.

    Congrats on losing 10 pounds, but if this happens again, I would call
    the office and ask them to make an adjustment. You should not have to
    suffer like this. :-( Talk to them about it when you have your
    appointment Monday. Best of luck to you.

    No here in WA. Perth has had no rain for over 100 days.

    Nice weather today though, 31C.
