I don't have pics of it but, my parents and I grilled 4 ribeyes and I made some American - or homestyle, whatever one wishes to call them- garlic and herb fries. Had 4 different spices combos to try and and they each received a different one.

1. Garlic and herb
2. Tucson garlic
3. 6 pepper
4. Rosemary and sage (I think)

Nossir, no diet here.
When I need to lose a couple I just work and work out longer
Yesterday the wife took the grand baby and one of the boyz to see Cinderella (he did not like it) the other boy went to a monster truck show and I was left to my own devices. I got in watching Nova science shows, then realized it was too late to brew or stew up anything. So I broke out a bog of those girly-girl air chips. Ate the whole bag and afterward I, 1. wondered what just happened, and 2. Was not filled up at all!

And what pray tell is this diet? I'll support the chicken part, but I shall have to pass on the green leafy items.

Omnitrition. She lost 45lbs in the first 45 days. I would much rather post up pics of the awesome food I normally make, but this is working for both of us, so in that sense I love it. This is my cauliflower crust pizza. No it doesn't taste like cauliflower, no it's not quite normal pizza, but yes it does taste awesome for what it is.

That's awesome, and congrats on you and your wife's success. I asked about Medifast because that's what I do (on and off)... I lost 40 lbs last year. Back up about 15, so need to buckle down again.

The "lean and green" dinners look really familiar  ;D

Will have to look into Omnitrition too. That pizza looks great though!! Mind sharing the recipe?

Well tonight is rehydrate and eat up night. I've been out n the bus for the last five days and I'm down on water and food.
So, a few pieces of fried chicken, a couple pounds of hot wings and some fries.
A gallon or two of water and then we'll see how I feel.

Been on the skidoo since 10:00 this morning, little to drink, none to eat, yeah should plan better, but we had all kinds of rain, and 50 ish degree weather yesterday, so it was just git 'er dun today.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Smoked/Grilled Corned Beef
The Glaze:
 2 TBS light brown sugar
 4 TBS Prepared yellow mustard
 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tsp diced onion
 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Soak two hours in warm water to remove some of the salt. Use the water to cook the vegies 
 Had to use a gas grill as that was what we had. wrapped wood chips in foil and set on burner shield. Indirect heat with pan of apple cider and water below the beef. This was after about 1/2 hour.

Know what, maybe this summer, if things in my life calm down by then, we and the other guys on here from Western Wa and others that wanted to attend could get together for a meet and greet PICNIC. Get a couple smokers and grills heated up and enjoy. Must be a nice park somewhere close to center of us that could handle a small group.

First stab at pizza dough. Got a new stand mixer. ( red of course) and a pizza stone.  I gave it a B.  Too much sauce and too many ingredients and I needed the oven a bit hotter.

Thanks.  It tasted fine just not that super crispy crust.  I had the oven on 450 and I needed to bump it to 550 (max) and let the stone come up to full temp after the kids pizza.  I'm ordering a pizza peel too since sliding pizza onto the stone is a challenge.  It was round before I tried to pull it off the board on to the stone.  More to come.  Also going to work on some bread recipes courtesy of my mom, who is a great bread maker.

so here are a few pics of the mouthwatering smoked chuck roast.  I started this at 0630 this morning, the smoke got shut off at 1030-1100, finished cooking in the pot until 1600 (mountain time).  good smoke ring and I finally learned about the coveted blue smoke!

1. the rolls that tracey did to make chuck roast sammies

2. the bacon wrapped potatos

3. the chuck roast after 3 hrs of smoke and going into the pot.

4. the chuck roast smoke ring

5. plated and ready to eat!

As good as everything looks, I would demolish that whole batch of rolls. just sit on the couch with a plate of butter and glass of milk and watch speed channel.

You boys can cook!

No pics but I made up a pot of spaghetti. used garlics, green peppers, shrooms, salt, peper, a few shots of red hot sauce, and some chipotle infused olive oil. Simmered it for about an hour, served over a bed of rice noodles with a slab of parmesan cheese topped Texas Toast.

Not in your guys league, but it got the job done!

Please tell me more.  Sounds like you are adhering to a low carb diet.  I am as well.  How did you make the crust out of califlower??

And you'd still be 745 miles away from Houston....rofl

I'm moving to el paso.

It's work. grated head of cauliflower into rice sized pieces, blended w/ mozzarella and parmesan, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. The grated cauliflower gets cooked off in the microwave and then used a tea towel to squeeze out the extra water. mixed in the above mentioned and added a couple eggs till I got a decent texture, and about a 1/4 cup of coconut flour. I'll get the whole recipe posted up when I get home from work, but you take that mix, form bread shaped pieces on parchment, bake it off at 425* for about 15 min until golden, cool, and then assemble and grill as you would with any grilled cheese.

I'm doing the Omnitrition program. went from 193-168.2 in 21days. I'm on the way more fun maintenance phase now, but still zero carbs or sugars or processed meats. my wife lost 61lbs since Christmas.

And you'd still be 745 miles away from Houston....rofl
