When the wife's away
My wife is also an outstanding cook and has opened my eyes to the fact that there is more out there besides meat and fish. However I capitalize on my carnivore instincts when she is away. Some recent items are antelope heart, fried rabbit, venison backstrap cooked in an excessive amount of onions and butter, grouse fried in bacon grease, bear burgers with blue cheese, and of course fried fish. As far as vegetables go, I’m sure I consume some barley in the beer that washes it all down.
When my wife is away I usually run through my normal grilling paces. BBQ chicken, Smoked ribs, steaks, Venni and maybe grilled salmon are in play. It's all very good but when she gets back I am ready for her to broaden the horizons a little. I don't usually spend a lot of time and effort on side dishes so things can get a little boring. Canned spinach and baked beans are great but not for too many days in a row. Mrt.
Good thread. Wife is leaving for 10 days early July. I'l eat like a king also. Lots of grilling. Wife is a wonderful cook and I enjoy it too. Spend a bit on very good ingredients and away i/we go. When at cabin myself, still eat great. But she usually has a few frozen items at cabin I can thaw in morning and eat for supper. She is already saying she'll make dishes ahead of time while gone in July, but i asked only for two small sides.
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....
