Title: What's For Dinner? And Other Random Musings.
Post by: Snaggletiger on February 17, 2018, 09:24:28 PM
Been on a pretty good roll lately in losing weight and amping up the workouts.  Orange Theory 3 days a week and skrate up weight training 3 days as well. Eating clean and the results are coming surely, but slowly.

When I get focused like that, I like to take one day and make it a cheat day eating-wise.  That was today.  Snags lite had a soccer game in Phenix City at Glenwood.  First trip there.  Wow!  They had a baseball double header going on against Jordan of Columbus, Ga.  My son's soccer game was going on at the football field right beside the baseball complex.  Folks, some schools know how to do it right.  Won't go into it all but trust me when I say, I was really impressed with what they have going on with athletics. Suffice it to say, they take their baseball seriously. 

But I digress.  We have a grill/wine shop/butcher shop here in Dothan called The Cellar.  After having a 3 pound "Gator Burger" (Glenwood Gators) at the game, I decided I wanted to grill a steak tonight, so we stopped on the way in.  Talk about one-stop shopping for dinner. 

Bacon wrapped filets
Potatoes stuffed with bacon, ham and cheese
Bacon wrapped asparagus bundles.  (See a theme here?)
Lobster tails

Seasoned the filets with Woster, Sid's Sure Shot and Rudy's Rub.  By the way, if you don't know about Rudy's Rub, you're missing out on one of life's great pleasures.  Go on line and order some now.  You will be forever indebted to the Supreme Snags from that point forward. 

Rolled the asparagus bundles in the same marinade the filets bathed in and put them on the grill as well.  The lobster tails:  Parboiled for 2 minutes.  Took them out and split the shell open with kitchen shears.  Poured a mixture of melted butter, lemon juice and garlic salt on them and put them on the grill for 3 minutes. 

Used the same butter mixture for dipping the lobster.  One of those meals where you stop and take a personal moment and realize there's a ton a flavors going on in your mouth.  Cheat Day....Success!

What's for dinner?

They take baseball very seriously. It is the home school of Tim Hudson. 


They don't beat the bigger/better boys in the area but they can hold their own against most schools.

Funny you should ask.  I got two filets for Snagette and Snags Lite and a well marbled ribeye for the big man.  Marinated them in my usual...Worstersherteshur, Sid's Sure Shot and my secret...Rudy's Rub.  The key, however; was that when I got them to 155 degrees, I slathered them in a mixture of melted butter and garlic salt.  Game Changer.  Still tasting that buttery goodness.

If you have to wrap a filet in bacon, it ain't being done right.

And I am not going to go in on having a good steak with anything other than a salt and pepper rub...

Blasphemer. 
Srsly though, I'll eat a steak doctored up with all kinds of spices or I'll be just as happy with it nekkid.  My preference is to get a lot of flavors going on with different marinades and rubs, whether it's cow, pig or whatever. 
On a different note, we finally have a couple of really good seafood markets here.  We can actually get fish that wasn't flash frozen 6 months ago.  Picked up a couple of black grouper filets the other night and cooked them with a pecan crust recipe.  Pan seared them a couple of minutes on both sides, then into the oven for about 12 minutes.  Not restaurant quality, but still damn fine for a first time pecan cruster.

I grilled some porterhouse for the hoe on Sunday and you may think WT is lying, but I’d stack it against most any. Didn’t have time to marinate. Got it the day of at the Publix.

Low and slow on a stone on my immigration egg. Let it sit a few in some dales. I’ve had plenty with just salt and peppers like WE!!! Said. But I’m telling you, I cut up
Some garlic and put it on. Med rare and I wanted to slap somebody’s granny.

That is all.

Oh Porterhouse, look at the wax build up on these shoes I want that wax stripped off there, then I want them creamed and buffed with a fine chamois, and I want them now. Chop chop.

Despite the fact that Alberto was dumping lots of water all over my house Monday, I got some serious baby backs done.  Wasn't that bad though because I go low and slow in the oven for 4 hours before finishing them on the grill. 

I rub my meat down real good.  Then I take the ribs out of the pack and put some rub on them too.  I wrap them in foil but douse them in teh Wosters to keep them moist during the cooking.  In the oven at 210 for 4 hours.  That puts them right at fallin' off the bone status.  Slather them up with the Secret Snags Sauce and put them on the grill for a few minutes each side to caramelize the sauce. 

Several years ago, I got to Joe's tailgate early just to watch him make his beans.  I can't recall all his ingredients but I do a variation of what he does.  I brown some hamburger meat, add diced onions, then the beans, yellow mustard and brown sugar.

Actually just kept it simple at my place. Dogs and burgers with baked beans and chips. Wasn't planning anything too crazy with the weather being so nuts.

But what about dcp ?

You know Alberto too? The gay Mexican roofer?
I know him too. But he just did my roof. Didn’t dump all over my house.
I don’t know him in that way.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that

And other musings....

I don't eat very many sweets.  I might have a slice of pie or cake 2-3 times a year, if that.  Not that I don't like sweets. Love em'.  But I try to eat healthy most of the time and that's just one thing that I've conditioned myself to forego.  Would rather splurge on pizza or other people's fries....or wine. 

Coming back from the ATL today driving through Eufaula, there's a place called Donut King.  Hole in the wall donut joint.  Snagette has raved about them for years.  She made me stop.  We picked up a dozen donut holes, more like donut wads.  They had just gotten them out of the fryer and bagged em' up.  We got to the car and I thought, WTH.  Give me one.

Peeps, when you bite into something and involuntarily blurt out, "Oh shoot", you know you've stumbled on something special. When Snagette stopped laughing and saying I told you so, I said, "I now know what heroin is like."

Do yourself a favor if you ever happen to be going through Eufaula, Alabama on the way somewhere.  Hit up the Donut King and get something glazed and hot.

One thing I've learned. Esp about the beachez. There is not more than 1-2 places that people will have a consensus on that is good to eat. If one person loves it, another 2 hate it. And vice versa. 

Capt Andersons and Margaritaville are those two places.

Appetizer. This is the 4th time I've made this in the last year and it has been cleaned out every time, including tonight.

Garlicky Shrimp Dip.

Sautee 3 minced garlic cloves, 1 pound of peeled shrimp in 2 TBSP of EVOO.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Cook for maybe 3 minutes until the shrimp is pink and firm. 

Heat the oven to 350 and mix together 1 cup of shredded Mozzarella, 1 cup of shredded Parmesan, 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup mayo and a dash of lemon juice.  Of course, I added a good portion of Frank's Hot Sauce. 

Chop up the shrimp into small chunks and add the shrimp/garlic mixture.  Get it stirred up good and pour into a baking dish.  25 minutes at 350 then add a little cheese to the top and broil for 2-3 minutes to get some char on the top. 

Put it out with some Town House crackers.  Sit back and wait for highest of praise for your culinary sklillz.

You're over cooking your shrimp.  Marinate them with oil and garlic (a little white wine might be nice), but don't cook them before you bake.  25 mins in the oven is pleeeeeennnnnnty.

Yeah, I thought the recipe called for a little overkill on the shrimp too, but fortunately it's always turned out good.

Dothan has about 300 restaurants. Probably 280 of those are some sort of franchise.  Bottom line, it's hard to find a real chef in this town.  There are; however, 2-3 go-to places where you can guarantee yourself a serious culinary experience.  This weekend, Snagette and I hit one of them and I ordered something I've only tried one other time in my life, Redfish.  Surprising as much as I love seafood, but I guess it's just not a common menu item, especially not around here.  But this place had blackened Redfish so I ordered that with smashed garlic potatoes and sautéed spinach.  GAWT.....DAMN!!!  Jizz-worthy to say the least.

I don't recall much about the first time I tried it but that piece of Redfish was good enough for Jehovah. A little drier, flakier fish.  Anyone had much of teh Redfishes?

Sounds mighty fine.  I've just never come across it on a menu and as many times as I've been salt water fishing, I've never caught a red.  Only went once where we targeted reds but only filled the cooler with Sheepshead.

It's tough to find because (in FL at least) it's a true line-caught fish with a very strict min/max size.

Was first made famous in NO by Paul K and his blackened redfish promptly became the gold standard.

It's delish, you just got really lucky finding it in a restaurant these days. 

If you wanna come catch 'em yo-own-damn-self I have a buddy down toward your fave stretch of the beach that will (in an wholly unlicensed and wink-wink-nudge-nudge charter) run your ass all around the bay chasing 'em.  He's also very likely to get you knee-walking drunk on scotch in the process.  If that's your thing.

My favorite pub and eats place here on Pensacola Beach serves it when grouper is gone. They do all the regular cooking. My favorite is the red fish bites. Lightly breaded and fried with a basket of tater tots covered in cheese, bacon bits and jalepenos. Washes down great with fine burbunz. Minus the dcp.

I read your post slowly, getting lathered up with each successive culinary description.  I was worked up to the edge of mind blowing food orgasm....then your last 3 words translated into, "I'm on my period."

Damn your teasing ways.
