Times are a little tight in The Desert Mansion. But, my birthday produced a new barbeque, and some gift money got diverted to buy propane and a marinated tri-tip from Costco. Initially high heat, progressively turned down as the cooking continues, sears in the juices and produces a nice char on the outside, and leaves the steak nice and rare inside. The Wife and I agreed that it was one of the best steaks ever.
We went to a dinner party tonight at a friend’s house with lots of dogs; we took our critters along to socialize them. After a little initial trouble getting acquainted, things worked out pretty good.
Aside from that, I’ve been frustrated with an underperforming fantasy football team. I really need the St. Louis Rams to start coming alive and living up to their potential.
Next week promises to be even more stressful than last. But there’s nothing to it but to do it.
