      This is “a good thing” ๐Ÿ™‚ Speaking of prayer, it is also going to be interesting to see what happens in Spain & Portugal this October on the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. The town of Fatima was named for a highly regarded woman who converted to Christianity from Islam, and that is where our Lady appeared in 1917. For those who don’t know, read up on the politics in the area at the time, and what hey did to the 3 little children who saw the apparitions. It is very interesting.

    Yesterday we got a new broiler for steaks. The same one used by Ruth’s Chris Steak House at the Amway Grand in G.R. Nice unit. Instead of our ancient 500-degree flame broiler, which I cleaned for three hours today before putting it in storage, we have this gas-infrared behemoth that runs at 1500 degrees. I thought our kitchen was hot before. Now we ALL need iced rags around our necks. The thing is nice, though. For $20 grand, it had better be. The whole line was rearranged yesterday. Chef, and everyone else on the line, have had their whole line rearranged. The whole mise en place and all that long-gained muscle memory for where to reach for stuff is gone, and changed. With no flames from below, there is no easy way to char a rare steak (black and blue, AKA, Pittsburgh-style), even though the unit is incredible to cook with.

    We have two catering jobs tomorrow, with lots of weird things that are not on our menu. I went in tonight, because my radar was going off, and helped these folks close the kitchen. Just to make their lives easier, and to help prep for tomorrow’s jobs. Omelet station: sliced mushrooms, grated white cheddar, diced red pepper, green pepper, onion, chopped bacon. Two flats of eggs, whipped. It’s all ready. Tomorrow I go in at 9, and deal with less stress than ads on this page which don’t exist visually, and cannot be found, even though they play loudly with audio, and pop my screen up to the top of the page when I am typing, making it so my scroll wheel doesn’t work at all, and get both jobs out the door, ready to serve, by 10 A.M.

    That last bit is also a daily occurrence, just like the restaurant insanity. I’m guessing, at this rate, in ten years we won’t be able to walk around town without ads being beamed into our optical nerves by invisible drones, with no way of X-ing out of them. And it’s only WordPress that does it, in my experience. No, you cannot scroll down. We want you to be at the top of the page! And you have no choice in the matter! It’s either WordPress or Brave, probably both. But the companies are probably Diverse. So it’s all good. Besides the product.

    Goodnight, Stellars!

      Ahhhhh yes, Ruth’s Chris…..we used to eat st the original on Briad Street in NOLA, used to be THE place for all local pols to conduct business. It’s been moved to whst some wags say is a more safer location, we just prefer to call it a more convenient location.
      Those huge hunks of prime beef sizzling on a red hot plate with a slab of butter dancing on top.

      One of the things I’ll have no regrets when they scrape ’em outta my arteries at the autopsy. Steaks to die for.

        Filet Mignon is the second-most expensive cut on our menu.

        The bone-in ribeye is $52, I believe. Chef makes a peppercorn sauce for it (au poivre) that is the absolute best sauce I’ve ever dipped anything into.

        We’re just having trouble with rearranging the line itself, and figuring out how to use this device to char a rare steak, while sweating our faces off.

          I learned recently that a T-Bone steak consists of both a filet mignon and a New York strip. The filet is on the litte side of the bone. Filet has almost no fat at all, and is the best beef I’ve ever eaten. You need no A-1โ„ข sauce with this cut.

                Found this for you. Until I found this recipe a couple of years ago, I refused to ever buy flank steak, saved my money for fewer occasions of eating steak, but better cuts. I love a rib eye.

                Anyhow, this is one of my favorite recipes, entire family loves it. Three tips. I marinate it at least a day in a freezer bag, frequently flipping it over. Take it out an hour at least before cooking. Second, only cook it on a hot grill, and only cook it to medium rare doneness, as stated in recipe. If you like well done, this steak isn’t for you. Third, cover it and let it sit ten minutes, again per recipe.

                I love to have leftovers to chop up, heat, and top my salads with.

                My dad used to make flank steak all of the time, and I love it. It shouldn’t be overcooked, benefits from a marinade, and cut thinly across the grain of the meat.

                  Yep, I forgot to say that part about the cutting, but I think it is in the recipe. I love that marinade. This steak is very flavorful, and after marinading and cooking right, is not tough.

                • Yes. Across the grain, into medallions. Like the shoulder tender, it’s a cheap cut that was once considered inedible unless in a stew (or fajitas). We use it all the time in catering, after sous vide-ing it in a marinade for a few hours, grill it, mark it, and slice into medallions, and it’s always a hit.

            If you cook a steak right, I can’t see burying it in A 1 sauce. I want to taste the beef. By the same token, I’ve changed totally the way I cook vegetables. Much simpler. I want to taste the vegetables, very little added to them.

            I’ve pretty much needed no A-1 with my husband’s home grilled masterpieces for the past 25 years! He is truly a Backyard Grill King…so our family is spoiled & virtually never buys a steak at a restaurant as they’re as good or better at home (of course $50 steaks are out of range…but I’d love to try one once for comparison)

          I bought two glorious ribeyes for our anniversary. Our butcher cut them two inches thick, no bone, great marbling. Just ain’t no good steak houses within 40 miles so we’re gonna sit on the patio and grill ’em…in case of rain there’s the sear-in-cast-iron and broil, not as good but better than pan frying…a sin in this case.
          Don’t sweat how it will work, practice and eat the casualties. I agree about the peppercorn sauce…you using the black peppercorns or the multicolored?

      based upon a lot of research…I have learned to broil steaks when they are frozen solid, by searing the outside on a very hot skillet or broiler….then to cook slowly in the oven at a low temperature….and the inside stays pink and moist, outside is broiled dark with grill marks, and it has never failed to make a better steak than when I take a perfectly cut, never frozen steak and cook it on a grill on high heat. Never imagined such a thing.

    Please forgive the length of this post, but I’ve been wondering: Was the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally timed to be a catalyst toward Civil War II? I have a theory that has me scratching my head because it’s, well, a puzzle. Of course, I could be wrong, but I am intrigued.

    Thousands of people are going to be overrunning a lot of southern towns with Civil War sites and monuments; the path of totality cuts across a whole lot of what was the Confederacy. For example, Dover, TN, just below Land Between the Lakes in NW TN is expecting 200 THOUSAND people this weekend. (I have close friends there and have visited often.) The population is about 1500 people in/around the town that covers 4 sq miles. Critical during the Civil War for control of the Cumberland River, Ft. Donelson National Park is accessed here and there off Ft. Donalson Parkway (TN SR 461). It is an important, and large, Civil War site. https://www.nps.gov/fodo/index.htm

    James Kessler held his rally less than a full week after finally winning his suit to get a permit for the rally. He took no time to advertise, no time for potential attendees to make arrangements to be there. He had to know it would be a powder keg; everyone else certainly did. It has come to my attention that Kessler was also a player in the OWS rallies and was an Obama acolyte. We also know that Soros money is often freely available for any rally that will stir up foment and hatred between the left and right. We also know that Soros is antisemitic. Soros’ agents could easily put together actors both on the left and on the right ensuring some degree of rioting and bloodshed in Charlottesville, getting both sides of the field fired up. For more on the Charlottesville memorial timeline, follow the link. This didn’t come up overnight, nor was there any urgency to protest the removal last weekend. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/charlottesville-rally-protest-statue.html

    Here’s the thing. I’m wondering if the speed with which Kessler organized his rally was timed to occur the week before the solar eclipse, giving the bad actors on the left a week to get worked up into warp drive. That way, they could take advantage of the proximity of those monuments this, the following weekend. Huge crowds, unmanageable for law enforcement would mean that a lot of vandalism could take place and still be a low priority for local LEOs. With the controversy, I have no doubt that many southerners will be willing to protect their sites and/or restrain the vandals, particularly if there is a family heritage connection to the sites. Think of the South strewn with powder kegs…

    I’m certainly not hoping this is true, it’s just a gut feeling. If I were going to design a major critical incident in the political sphere, I can’t think of a better way to do it. Identify an enemy, foment hatred on both sides, attack a beloved symbol and the game’s afoot. Or in other words, in this case, CWII gets much closer very quickly.

    I’ll be actively praying I’m completely wrong, but what do you guys think? Is my tinfoil tight?

    And apologies to you, Stella, if this is the kind of conspiracy stuff you disdain; I rather see it as a potentiality to be sorted out. Seeing these kinds of patterns is how I picked my nickname; it’s sometimes a curse but it’s always interesting…

    Don’t know how the Barcelona attacks are being reported in your respective areas but around here they’re being blended, condensed, factoids winnowed out and concatenated with the Charlottesville killings to seemingly minimize the Islamic aspect.
    On Wednesday night in Alcanar police responded to a small blast at a house and, while investigating, were met by a second and larger blast. Senior police officials later connect the blast to the Barcelona attack, saying the ocupants were trying to make a bomb to use in the van.

    Thursday afternoon we have the Barcelona attack with our local news showing a far lower death toll thsn the European papers with the comparisons to Chsrlotresville inevitably starting.
    Thursday evening a car plows through a checkpoint in the outskirts of Barcelona, running over two police officers, car is later found with driver stabbed to death.

    Early on Friday morning in Cambrils a car plows into pedestrians in a second attack with one woman killed and seven others injured. Police shoot what are taken to be five terrorists, wearing suicide vests, one of whom had been confirmed to be Moussa Oukabir, a suspect wanted in connection with the Barcelona attack.
    Spanish officials are now confirming that the Alcanar blast was an attempt by the Barcelona attackers to mount an even more deadly attack but when their bomb attack blew up in their faces they went for plowing into the crowds instead.
    And while we are seeing ‘terrorist’ being thrown around freely we’re also seeing commentators doing yoga-like contortions to avoid using the words ‘Islam’ or ‘Islamic’.

      I unplugged from cable and went to streaming tv so I was glad to have Sky News to watch the events in Spain. The first thing I thought of when I heard about the single blast with a second following was a different terrorism MO. When I worked for emergency management we were taught that it’s possible that any first attack could be followed by a second attack on whatever first responders were on scene. Glad that wasn’t the case.

      I don’t get the conflation of Charlottesville with the terrorist attack by vehicle, except to water down the terrorist aspect. Do we even know if the guy in Charlottesville did it out of malice or was just scared out of his wits?

      Thanks for the heads up; I hadn’t heard about the Cambrils attack.

    I first ran into secondary blasts to hit first responders in zvirtnam, it’s an oldie basic tactic but has to be continually retaught. Problem is you can’t just sit there when you have casualties, you have to go in.
    The Spanish officials have only officially said the attacks are all connected within the last few hours, let’s see when/how the MSM reports it.

      I wish we could ship La Raza (or undosUS, as they call themselves now, like all commie organizations tend to rename themselves when their former name gets a tarnish…) over to Spain, in fact. The great American SW didn’t create Mestizos. Spain did. We just happen to be right next door, and from Europe, albeit to the North-East of it, on some big islands.

      But they can’t go to Spain, whose language they speak, because they were conquered by the Spanish-speaking people, and take over. They haven’t invented boats. So they come here, because we’re right across the street!

      And we pay them to reproduce, while disincentivizing our people from having any children at all. The outcome of this tactic should be fun for all. Not.

  7. Hi Stellarites…I’m still playing catch up on my reading but wanted to drop in Today with a prayer request. My husband’s Christian Rock Band, The Lively Pelts, is playing another gig today in Metro Detroit. The venue is a closed school that was taken over by a local ministry. 4 or 5 bands are coming together to basically play from lunch until dinner, with the Pelts wrapping up the show. Their last show, nearly 2 weeks ago, was accompanied by a number of “attacks” as the Enemy apparently doesn’t like people proclaiming Jesus as Lord & taking back territory from him for our Creator. Please pray for protection, encouragement, equipment & vehicle functionality, and most especially that hearts & minds will be drawn toward the Lord.

    God Bless You ALL…& thanks for the wonderful work you do, the love & care consistently on display here, your steadfast determination to stand for Truth, your examples of integrity & tenacity, & your unflinching faithful witness for our Lord &/or biblically-based principles. You Guys Rock!

      would love to see statistics about the actual people who are at the protests, both sides of the violence.
      Percentage with college degrees
      Percentage that dropped out of HS without graduating
      Work Skill sets by most represented down to non at all
      Percentage that are currently employed in full time jobs and have been there over a year
      Percentage that are still attending some school
      List of the schools that are represented by participants
      Tally of total number of body tattoos on all participants
      Number of protestors still living in parent or family dwelling

    Hello All ๐Ÿ™‚ Recently got back from doc appointment in Boston suburb. Left early wondering about traffic from protesters at Boston free speech event. As of 8 miles north of Boston no back-up on highway going south. We did see 2 Vermont small cars in tandem whipping in and out of traffic, going far above the rest of the speeders. On the way back to NH we were caught directly behind a shiny new Volvo with Bernie, UNH, and Resist stickers.(gag) The young man was driving dangerously slow in the middle lane. We watched him reach across the front seat fidgeting about, finally pulling an Ipad from a knapsack. When we were able to pass him he was typing into the Ipad. But justice would soon be served as a NH state trooper vehicle pulled out and started to pull up near him. Texting while driving is illegal in NH. Dear hubby said “Yeah -he’ll probably be posting to fakebook complaining about being pulled over – all while driving!
    But what gets me is: Here he is in an expensive car, going to college in a nice, low crime state with low unemployment, and he’s complaining “resist”! Resist what !?! How good his life is? auugghhh! Of course he is too much of a coward to do this in Venezuela.
    So here is my caturday response:

    Have great one everybody ๐Ÿ™‚

    Photo caption: It’s interesting to remember that when the Feibleman’s (Sears) store was built in 1923, Civil War veterans were still alive. Here you see the storefront decorated for a Confederate Veterans event.

    lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
