I got a whole fillet of chinook salmon out of the freezer just now and will smoke cook it on the Weber this afternoon. It’s the last whole fillet from my trip to Port Alice in 2019. It looks like my trips to Alice are over. Sandy is selling his trailer and after this season will no longer be going there to fish for awhile. with covid and Canada’s travel rules who knows when I’ll get to go back.

At the wine dinner a couple weeks ago, a friend and I bought a bottle of $90 wine. So last night I made dinner for 4 of us to have with the special bottle. Since it was a Cabernet franc, it needed red meat.

We started with my firecracker shrimp with a bang bang style dipping sauce, paired with Prosecco. No pics, but 4 of us devoured 1 1/2 pounds of the shrimp as just an appetizer. It was addictive.

Dinner was Steak Diane to go with the wine. Filet mignons cooked sous vide to 128F, then seared. Mushroom cognac sauce over the top.
Puréed carrots, griddled asparagus were the vegs. I baked potatoes in the combi-steam oven until they were done inside, then basted in duck fat and cranked it up to crisp the skins. Sour cream and chives of course.
Dessert was peanut butter pie.

the whole meal was a bit much, but the wine deserved it.

Got the smoker going and did two rack of St. Louis ribs and ABT's. Grilled zucchini and summer squash, and storebought cole slaw.

Oh, I also briefly smoked a chunk of salt pork, after removing the skin. Looks good! Will make some Boston baked beans with it this week.

I had meatballs in gravy, yellow rice and asparagus for lunch (no pics).
Turns out we're not going to Michigan.
Jules got off work 4 hrs before me, so her Mother went with her.
I'm just having a fish, lettuce and tartar sauce on toasted bread.
And I'm exhausted.
