We accomplished today what we meant to do yesterday, which is to say we cruised over to The Big(ger) City™ where we got The Green Hornet a bath, then rode on over to Cannon Airplane Patch where we picked up this month's meds, hit the Class VI Store for the customary and reasonable beer re-stockage, and topped it all off with a major commissary run. We were back home around noonish, put the groceries away (how pleasant that was, and I kid thee NOT: storage, and lots of it!), retrieved a shipment of cigars from the mailbox and promptly adjourned to the verandah for to partake of a Partagas Black and a 1554. Rewards, yanno?
So... that's done and we're in the midst of preparing tomorrow's dinner today. We'll feast on the Pennington variation of a London Broil tomorrow evening after letting the flank steak marinate over night. Here's what the main course looks like before going into the marinade:
Note the 1.65 pound flank steak is lightly scored on both sides and will soon be immersed in marinade, consisting primarily of three-fourths of a bottle o' red New Mexico table wine, about a quarter cup o' Spanish olive oil, three cloves o' crushed garlic, a sprinkling of parsley, basil, thyme, pepper, and a couple o' bay leaves. If this were Former Happy Days we'd be using fresh herbs from our herb garden but it ain't, so we won't.
Now we have to figger out what's dinner this evening and prepare for more hockey goodness later on. Tonight it's the Wings against the Canucks, at The Joe. It would be good if the Beloved Wings remain perfect on this young season, but Vancouver is coming off of a tough loss to the Flyers last evening and will be motivated. We shall see...
