    An overall shitty day

    I was off yesterday and had a list of things to do.
    Went to Home Depot to get nuts and bolts to make a grate extension. Left there, was on my way to the cigar shop and SLAM I rear end a minivan with a mother and two young children. So I feel like a real jerk and continuously ask if her children are okay. She couldn't have been nicer. So we exchanged info and we were on our way, truck was still drivable and police were not involved, which made things simpler.

    The plan was to go to the cigar shop afterwards, then to the Pet Shop and was gonna surprise my daughter with a guinea pig. I made it to the cigar shop and then went home to cut the grass and drink.
    Get the grass cut, then put together my grate extension. Get it together and couldn't be happier. Text a pic so to a friend and he said 'take it off your grill'. The idiot I am, bought zinc coated nuts, bolts and washers...so this is another part of my f'd up day. I'll go back to HD today to get stainless, I knew better, but I'm blonde. It fit and worked perfect but is toxic due to the zinc coating. This made me switch from beer to Beam. What else could go wrong?

    So I continue on cooking without my extension as I'm internally ragggggggggggggggging. New potatoes marinated in Italian Dressing and red onion.

    Added bratwurst and bell peppers.

    Then my wife's Friday steak, ugh and asparagus.



    This is where things simply hit rock bottom. I go inside to eat, ask my wife for the saurkraut and buns for the brats. SHE FORGOT BOTH. At this point in my day, I just say phuck it, just par for the course of the day and put it all in a pile and eat it and act like I'm enjoying it. A brat to me is not a brat without kraut and spicy mustard and chopped fresh onion.

    Look on the bright side, you made it to the cigar store.

    We all have those days. Hope you can pick up the pieces, shake off yesterday and have a great day today.

      So sorry about the accident, but if that is the meal you prepared afterwards it is awesome! Whenever you post your foodie pics I always want to be some relative of yours who drops by just as the noms are coming off the grill. You rock as a cook!

            oh hell, is that what that was! I though I was getting some kind of killer peepee bug, but no, it was the asparagas.
            well the grill extentension is neet, and I think I am going to do something like that, and now I know not to use zink coated nuts, so its not at total loss because I doubt most of use know some nuts and bolts are poison if heated.
            the truck binger, that just sucks. nice truck, by the way, I love my ole truckytruck.
            I wanna come to your house for dinner though, damn you made me hungry.

                That sucks, but luckily the accident wasn't much worse.

                The food looks great as always though. Seriously, you could have your own grilling show.

                  Hi Larry,
                  Sorry about the accident.
                  Gotta tell you...we made the Orange Sriracha chicken last night. It is zippy and delicious. Thanks.

                  All the best,
                  GJ & NL

                    Thank you all! Honestly you're making me feel better.

                    On a good note, I got in contact with a local welder and he came out lickity split and re-welded the glide n go seat. I'll take pic's later if anyone is interested. $50, NOT bad for a house call on a Saturday, so I gave him $60! I was extremely appreciative of his response!!!

                      Your grilled food always make me envious. We grill a lot, but it never looks so pretty.
                      I like kraut and mustard too.
                      Thankfully no one was hurt.
                      Are you still getting the guinea pig?
                      We had one for years named "Vinny Guinea that was a sweetie.

                        Yep, we got 'Pumpkin' yesterday. We had gotten 'Apple' last week for my daughter to my dismay. I said no, 1000 times. But finally gave in, she's my baby and will get what she wants when she deserves it, she's a SUPER KID!

                        Here is 'Apple' on the chair, next to my leg. 'Otis' doesn't seem to know what to think about it.


                        And here is 'Pumpkin', the Guinea Pig, not my wife!


                        They look the same, but Pumpkin is bigger. They're much cooler animals than I thought. Make some strange noises too! After my wife put Pumpkin down, she held Apple in the exact same spot and she went nuts squealing. I guess she smelt the Pumpkin.

                          Our piggie Vinny would squeak and sit up and beg when the refrigerator opened. He loved carrot sticks.
                          We kept him in one of those under the bed storage bins lined with newspapers and litter (without the lid or under the bed of course) in the dining room and he never tried to escape. He liked putting his paws on the edge and watching.
                          He had a shoe box house to hide in.
                          I think they are nice pets for kids.

                              yumm! Cuy!
                              brings back memories of my trip to Peru many years ago.
                              actually, I can't say that guinea pig is particularly delicious. But I had to try it once.
