Feast of the Beast

Yesterday (Saturday, that is), it was such a beautiful day outside. Lately I've been suffering from the one-two punch of molds and ragweed, but I figured the best way to treat it would be to inhale smoke , drink copious amounts of hard cider (apples are good for you, right?), and eat vast quantities of red meat.

First up on the grill, bratwurst.

It's important for the grillmaster to keep from getting thirsty while working over a hot open flame. By the way, this Fall Cider is the shite.

Next , some mixed vegetables...carrots, zucchini, and potatoes, for those of you keeping score at home. The basket pictured here has a design flaw- there are gaps on the sides where pieces of veg can (and did) fall out when the basket is shaken/flipped. Sharp-eyed viewers will spot pieces of veg scattered on the grill in subsequent pics. Guess I'll cut the pieces bigger next time.

Next on the menu, bison burgers.

Last, but definately not least, a couple of baco-wrapped filets and a NY strip steak.

Insert 'hot buns' joke here.

Places are set...

...but beware of predators out to poach your meal...

...especially big Yeti-dogs. Hope you all had a great weekend. See ya!

Chicken and spuds sounds good!
You know that you and Lana are always welcome to come visit!


The Fall cider is great- it's got nutmeg, cinnamon, and other stuff in addition to the apple-booze goodness that is Woodchuck. The veggie cage is pretty cool...I've had it for years and finally used it!

I LOVE me some hard apple cider. I used to go out in the woods for the whole night of Oct.'s full moon. Hard apple cider was often my companion then. I need to do that again someday...

Yup, I loves me some hard cider,too. I just wish they made that Fall stuff all year 'round.
