Pickup line of the moment

December 12, 2010

You are beautiful and even if you are a liar and fart like a Clydesdale, I’d love to meet up sometime.

Via a Clearwater, Fl Craigslist Missed Connection ad and reddit.

The next time you and I are together, and you fart like a Clydesdale, you best own up …

Father/Dogger Keeping Warm on a Cold, Snowy Afternoon

Here’s a shot of Talulah bear and I hugging in the kitchen. Tina just happened to  have the hipstamatic ready.

If I could find this ginormous jar of Nutella (below), I would be Tina’s best friend for the rest of her life. Actually, I think regular-reader Xina has a sweet spot for Nutella.

She claims there’s a place near her house that sells Nutella milkshakes.

“Claims” is the key word.

Here’s a couple more shots of Lou Dog. She seems to have the same face in most photos, but here are a couple that are a little different. They aren’t the sharpest images, but they’re damn cute, if I do say so myself.

Weekend Menu: Aged ribeye, Asparagus and Gnocchi, Cauliflower and Gorgonzola Gratin

December 12, 2010

Tina’s birthday is next Sunday, and she expressed that she wanted to go out to eat. So Friday I said, “Because I’d like to cook you something special, choose anything and I’ll make it for you.”

I was in the mood to cook. Of course Tina had her stomach set on a steak and asparagus. She asked specifically for dry-aged steak that we buy at our local Whole Foods. I chose ribeye because that’s our favorite dry-aged variety.

It’ll run you $20 to $25 a pound, but for special occasions, this is definitely splurge worthy.

I refused to oven cook a dry-aged steak, so I braved the weather and grilled. If you’ve never tried a dry-aged steak, give it a whirl. Your stomach, and the stomachs around you will thank you.

I’ll throw the next recipe under the fold. It’s “Gnocchi, Cauliflower and Gorgonzola Gratin.” It’s from the cookbook America’s Test Kitchen 30-minute Suppers “Winter Comfort” edition. This is a must make. The book is a must buy. I’m not kidding. This recipe is so warm and comforting, you’re a failure every second you don’t make this dinner. Here’s the photo:

Who are the most persecuted?

I will direct you here in the event you might want a reminder.

This video makes me think of the “Last Believer in Zeus.” All his friends busting his balls all the time over his Zeus worship. Hilarious.
