I stole it from someone else so your crime is minor.

 

Today is a good day. I did KBs before work, two full rounds with the 20lb bell and the halos of the 3rd round. That's the first time I've attempted reps on the third round of the workout. It felt good. Work was good, we had a retirement lunch for our priest colleague today. Before I proceed further, it's important you know I've known this man for seven years and worked with him for a good chunk of that. Today after lunch we stood up together and he looked at me and said, "I never knew you were so much taller than me."

 

Dinner was BBQ, we got brisket and ribs with creamed corn and potato salad. We were in heaven.

Good gods, I couch surfed with a family in Inverness who served me 'chaggis' - haggis stuffed in seasoned chicken breast.

 

It was life-alteringly delicious and my mouth just started watering purely out of recall.  🤤

Do you have a setup where you can slow-smoke the meat? I'm not trying to be snobby, but real Texas BBQ can't be reproduced by other means. In fact, people who are snobby about Texas Brisket will insist you can't use BBQ sauce, it's all about the dry rub and the smoke.

That sounds amazing.

 

Today is a good day. I had a good time with the baby, due in no small part to us both taking a good long nap in the morning. After lunch I did the NF Prime Mobility workout of the day. 

 

Here is my customary warning the first time I describe cooking on a thread. Don't come here hungry. Have a snack at hand.

 

Dinner was made in the instant pot, and I used the pressure cooking part this time because I started in the afternoon. I sprayed cooking spray in the cauldron of the pressure cooker. Then I took three red potatoes and cut them in half and then thin sliced them. I put those on the bottom of the cauldron, then added a chopped red bell pepper. Next I chopped about 8 chicken thighs and dusted them generously with smoked paprika and stirred them before putting that on top of the vegetables. Next was a drained can of corn, then a mixture of a can of cream of chicken soup, 1/4 c heavy cream, 1/4 c chicken broth, 1.25 tbsp soy sauce and .25 tbsp lemon juice. I put that in and set the timer for 24 minutes, then quick released the steam. Once I had the lid off I mixed in about 2 c shredded cheddar and let that melt in. It was amazing, the chicken was cooked to perfection and the flavors were of course heavenly.
