Cooking: Tzaziki Sauce & Sweet Onions

My daughter Theresa, dubbed the Polish Princess by her grandma,  has an emerging flare for cooking and entertaining. She whipped up this simple sauce this weekend and I can tell you a couple ways to use it for Summer time fare…well anytime fare:

First the Tzaziki Sauce:

8 ounces of Plain Yogurt

Pinch of minced, mild green onion; touch of dill.

One half tablespoon sugar, then salt & garlic to taste, touch of black pepper.

Now slice and add to this sauce cucumbers or sweet onions. Leave the onions in rings. This is sloppy good for gyros, with lamb, with steaks, with pork, at the gathering. Chill before serving and let the sauce meld with the onions or cuc’s. Excellent & refreshing.

Cooking: Fried Steak

When I was a kid there was not a BBQ in our family. Steaks were cheap cuts and maybe cooked in oven under the broiler, spattering and bursting all over. More often they were fried on the stove top. Seems odd these days when many have gas grills on the back deck or charcoal BBQ’s. Of course, the ‘old’ way is still an option (outside of restaurants):


PAN FRIED STEAK

BROILER PAN STEAK

This may take you back a bit, the smells of fried food in the house? Eventually, my dad acquired the charcoal BBQ and steaks were no longer cheaper cuts, but T-Bones (our tradition) or other good cuts suitable for family celebrations. For most of my young life, cuts of beef were a treat. Even Round Steak was a treat.

Life = Pilliing (Livin’ It?)

Life = “…pilling is the formation of small, fuzzy balls on the surface of a fabric. It detracts from the appearance of the fabric, making it look old and worn, and it is often difficult to restore a garment with fabric pilling to its original condition. Certain types of fibers and weaves are more prone to fabric pilling than others, but it is often a normal part of wear and tear.”

Pilling Along The Way (SwittersB)

Live your life. Pills are a normal part of life. If you haven’t got any, what the hell are you waiting for? If you do, embrace them your sorry son of a bitch!  Ok, I just watched “We Were Soldiers” A bit over inspired, perhaps.

No, I recently ran into an old acquaintance from another life of say 25 years ago. A life boxed and compartmentalized for  sanity’s sake. He remarked about some ol’ timers he had run into from the old, hard days and how those men all were stuck back in negativity and the past. We shook our heads knowing it was wasteful, but looking over our shoulder to be careful negativity was not looming. I raised my glass to that old friend and saluted where we had been, and more importantly, where we were now. In the present! To the past (if you can remember it) and to the present and future. Rough up that fabric. Oh, psycho babble aside, if the lid on the box is ajar; close it.

Fly Tying: PETA & Your Ethical Decisions

Ok, you ugly, insensitive bastards. You have a decision or two to make. Craft store, synthetic doll’s hair or Temple Dog. Elk hair or….. Partridge feathers or….. Grizzly hackle or……. Well, there are options like Ice Dub and …… Geeze, we may be fishing egg patterns after all. Of course, the fly tying issue has not crossed PETA Pathetic’s minds yet. But they are more than honed in on your hurting the fish. And, please don’t don’t send me the supporting documentation of studies re fish pain levels etc.

There’s nothing funny about being electrocuted, drowned, strangled, gassed, beaten to death, or caught in a steel-jaw leghold trap just so that some greedy, heartless person can wear your skin because they think that it makes them look rich or glamorous. In reality, it just shows everyone how ugly they are.”  (or tie flies! you heartless, uncaring , oblivious person)

The Pubis Fly cannot be far behind. Well actually I think that has been tried.

What’s Wrong With Catch-and-Release Fishing?

Fish who are released after being caught can suffer from loss of their protective scale coating that makes them vunerable to disease, a dangerous build-up of lactic acid in their muscles, oxygen depletion, and damage to their delicate fins and mouths. According to one fishery expert, catch-and-release victims “could be vulnerable to predators, unable to swim away, or if nesting, not capable of fending off nest raiders. Some guarding males could in fact abandon the nest.” Researchers at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation found that as many as 43 percent of fish released after being caught died within six days.  (ah, meaningful research. Don’t throw them back in you morons!)
