Monday, Monday

Lois was extra hungry this weekend-- I think it was the pre-maturely spring-ish weather, but she was bird crazy and batting at the screen of the bedroom window early in the morning.

I think she wanted some quesadillas, which have been very popular recently around our house.I've been keeping little snack bags full of shredded jack and cheddar cheese in the fridge along with tortilla wrappers. The two go together in a flash, along with almost anything else you have on hand. These were made with some black beans that I cooked down with some green pepper, onion, garlic, scallions, fresh parsley, some cumin and some grape tomatoes.

I just received a box of goodies from HawgeyesBBQ who are my favorite purveyors of all things any bbq cooker needs. I used Mary's Cherry BBQ Rub on some pork chops, and HomeBBQ's Garlic Steak Rub on some skirt steaks that I served with garlicky spinach, and some roasted potatoes. I rubbed the steaks with the HomeBBQ Butcher Block Garlic Steak Rub as mentioned earlier. I let them sit from Saturday morning until Sunday evening for the Soprano's premier. I grilled them up on the cast iron grill pan.

Sounds like you were eating pretty well for a sick man!

I just hope your Mary's cherry rub didn't come out of the goods the Hawgeyes BBQ donated to be part of the goody bags for NYC's first sanctioned BBQ contest, Grillin on the Bay.

My allergies are killing me, and for some (not so fun reason) I've been getting dizzy spells. Been off my blood pressure med for a week, so maybe that's it...? NOT fun.
