Many years ago, back in the early 60's in Alaska, there was a much beloved gentleman who worked "for" me. It was Chief Master Sargent LaVerne (Buck) Braun. There are several memorable quotations that I attribute to him. One was, "Only GI's and millionaires can live like this." That one came as we floated down the Yukon River in a John boat, fishing for rainbows. Another was, "My idea of a great diet is, for supper, a rare steak, a salad, and a martini (or two)". It has always been a good choice, although the the other meals sometimes get in the way. Below is a picture of the first steak on the Treager since we have been back.
Our normal procedure is to get a single steak, usually a rib eye, that weighs about a pound or so. That is enough for the two of us. The Treager is not a super hot grill. It is more attuned to slow smoking, but it can get hot enough to sear a good steak. So, with no potato and just a salad, we had a very nice supper. The martinis were a part of the picture. Thanks, Buck.
Although we walked around the block tonight, our lifestyle is becoming much less adventuresome.
Baxter appears glad to be home.
