Monday, Monday...



It was already hot and sticky when I left for work. This did not bode well…

I went to the Newburgh Grill and got a cup of beef vegetable soup and a mini Greek salad for lunch.

By the time I got home, it was hard to breathe. It wasn’t South Carolina hot, but it was definitely Michigan hot. But, I had work to do outside.

So, I dumped two gallons of water on all the roses out front. Then I got my crowbar and pried out the 4x4s, topped with a treated 2x4’s that line my front garden.  I completely sweated through my tee shirt and shorts. But, I got ‘er done!

Then I fired up some charcoal in my grill. I dumped the coals from the charcoal lighter can, scrubbed the grill with a wire brush and then oiled it. I added the sweet corn and tended to it.

Then it started to rain…

It wasn’t raining hard, more like sprinkling. But it was putting the charcoal out. So, I covered the grill with the lid of my warming station.

I got the sweet corn off (I make great roasted corn) and then put on the rib eye steak. Unfortunately, when I finally gave up and pulled the steak, it was definitely “rare.”

I personally prefer “medium rare.”

I ate most of the corn and choked down a few bites of the steak.

I watched a little TV and then went to bed.
