When the wife's away
My wife was to get home late last night. I was at the land all day putting in food plots so on the way home, very tired, I thought what the heck.
Picked up a big porterhouse and some fresh brussel sprouts. Wife does not like sprouts. Wrapped the sprouts in foil with salt, pepper, 3 ice cubes and a little olive oil. Onto the grill they went for about 20 minutes on low. The steak followed along with a few cold brews. Cut up some carrots and celery on the side with a little ranch dressing. There were no leftovers....
Now when I’m up north at the cabin by myself, I probably eat more like you normally do Reeldrag when the wife’s away. It cuts down on prep time and dishes and leaves more time for fishing and other outdoor activities. I’m not really into the canned soups and stews so I stop in at the Chinese buffet on my way through Rhinelander and heap up a big to-go box. That’s typically good for a couple of suppers and a lunch. Breakfast is usually microwaved Jimmy Dean sandwiches or a granola bar and a thermos of coffee in the boat.
