Broke down and did a couple of NY steaks on the Q last night. They were pretty darned good, but nothing compared to BC/Alta beef.

The beef out here is of the local variety in most places - either that or it is USDA Choice beef which is not nearly as good. The local beef is like range-fed beef from BC in that it is often leaner, it is sometimes smaller, and it is a bit chewier.

I sure miss the rib eyes and striploins that I used to get at the Thrifty stores on the Island. Their AAA Stirling beef was the best.

Safeway has rib eyes on sale for $6.99 a pound......sure are tasty!! The best deal I have seen is when they go on sale a couple of times a year for $4.99 a pound......only complaint I have is you do need to trim probably 10% fat........!

Problem is - there are no Safeway stores out here - and no Thrifty stores either.

Sobey's bought up Thrifty's a while ago and they haven't changed the beef program out west - but out east (at least on PEI) they are switching to strictly local beef, with the occasional bit of AAA Stirling now and again....

Sometimes (at work) we will get in some AAA beef from Alberta - that's when I make sure I get some of it for the freezer.

I sure do like my home vac-sealer machine - it has more than paid for itself over the years.

Salmon Arm
For dinner to night my wifey made me 2 of these wonderful salmon burgers. Ground salmon patties from our local grocery store dipped and breaded tenderly fried and on the bun she put a mix of sour cream and Dijon mustard on the bottom a slice havarti cheese with a leaf of lettuce and some sweet corn relish.

Looking mighty fine Bill :Oh Yeah!:



The store had bone-in hams on for $1.00 per pound. One of the shank-half pieces had a blown cryovac seal so it was going for 50% off the regular price..... I bought it for just over $5.00 :Heh, heh, heh:

Last night I had a few slices with a simple salad of roamine lettuce, feta cheese chunks, and cherry tomatoes. :Hungry:

I bought a Himalayan Salt Block to cook on so tried it out on a steak night


Did Lamb Shank Osso Bucco Style on lamb night


Added a stuffed Portabella Mushroom Capreses style then baked


Feeling a comfort food so pulled out some smoked turkey I did a while back and made Smoked Turkey Orzo Soup..... made lots of Smoked Turkey Stock to for later use

And for tonight’s dinner we are having German Beef Rouladin, dumplings and traditional German Red Cabbage
