    Espresso Machine

    We got this yesterday but haven’t used it yet, hopefully tomorrow. In running our errands today we went to Dillanos Coffee Roasters and got a bag of their medium/dark coffee that is popular with coffee shops in the area. I grabbed a bag off the shelf but the owner said to put it back and had the...

    Bistro 29

    Nampa, Idaho. We ate here last night. It is on the to floor of the old Masonic Temple and considered the best restaurant in Nampa. I had a Caesar salad big enough for two and we did share it. Nancy had the Idaho trout, I had a ribeye, and they were both excellent. Dessert was a deconstructed...

    Grub Steak

    was fantastic again. I had the prime rib and Nancy had fillet mignon. I’m not even sure what my dessert was called but it was a frozen chocolate thing with thick Oreo type cookie on the bottom. I never eat all the prime rib and sure Matt will finish it off when he gets home tomorrow. Once a year...

    Gluten Free Bread

    This is a gluten free bread using millet and tapioca flour my wife made today. It kind of fell but still was fluffy and good.

    Pulled Pork

    Today I’m making pulled pork using fresh picnic ham instead of shoulder. It was half the price of pork shoulder so thought I’d give it a try. I used a keto rub I found on the net. The only sweet it will have is apple juice when I foil wrap to finish. I used cherry wood from our tree for smoke.

    Day trip

    to Mount St. Helens yesterday. About 1300 we decided to go for a drive and I suggested St. Helens. I’d been there when I taught high school special education back in 2000. Then the visitors center was open and you could see the cauldron a lot better. Since there has been so much volcanic...

    Dungeness Crab

    Chocolate Pie

    Yesterday my wife made this chocolate pie for Father’s Day dessert. The crust she made from walnuts and I don’t know what else. The filling was dairy free and the main ingredient was avacodos which were, of course, blended. It tasted fantastic. The cool whip was not on our diet but we didn’t care.
