The sun has finally made an appearance in Philly after a relatively chilly and wet weekend starting on Friday afternoon.

Going to take a ride around town later then grill some lamb loin chops marinated in herbs de Provence, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice.

Fitbit tells me my mtb ride was 1:23:30, avg 112 bpm. I'm not sure what to call this new larger workout loop I've been doing lately, but it's 3 hills, 2 long and drawn out, and the last one shorter but devilishly (Diabliciously?) steep. Downhills in between of course.

Then back at home my 17yo high school varsity bball player asks me if I want to go to the park and play at lunchtime. Sigh, who could say no? I tell him "OK, but I'll be tired and slow" he says "how will that be different?"

Made a double batch of my mom's potato salad (more sour cream than mayo, lots of eggs), and we'll be grillin burgers for dinner.

I know it's Memorial Day, not Veterans Day, but thanks to all you Vets who served (and survived, so we can celebrate you instead of memorializing you!)

I was busy doing a bike build and missed the awards banquet for The Indianapolis 500 this evening. It is always the best part of the race because the drivers are there with the families and crews and are relaxed. The best part is the comradery that the show to each other and the respect the have for each other. If you ever get the chance to watch the awards it is in my opinion the best part of Indy 500. I hope to be there in person next year and see old friends like Lone Star JR and others from the glory years of the 70's. And of course some of the newer drivers. These kids are awesome in the skill set. Heck I doubt If I could even navigate the steering wheel of the new cars. I trust all has have had a great week-end and were able to give thanks to those who gave their all for us. Smiles, MH

Broke out the grill and the smoker and did seasonal clean up and prep of both. On Sunday and Monday I cooked Jamaican "jerk" chicken on the grill and the smoker (takes longer on smoker, but more smoke flavor). Did Tofu on the grill and smoker. (all of that used a product called "Island Spice" jerk spice, as a rub.) Also cooked veggies on the grill; zukes and onions. Did pesto pizza on the smoker.

We have leftovers for the next two days.

Oh yeah, had a beer or three... Also went to the outdoor opening of a local new pub. Lot's of open yard space to walk around... beer needs work... but heck, they're new.

This is worth trying out

Apparently that turned into a meme because he says 'rub your meat real good', but I came by that honestly, saw his cooking show on BBC when I lived in UK. You don't have to make thyme-infused vinegar -- or use fresh thyme for that matter, I just used dried (or maybe I'm missing out on amazing thyme flavor, but this is amazing every time I make it)

If cooked into the dish some herbs are fine dry like thyme, others should be fresh.
The main way to tell is if the herb grows in a hot dry climate with robust leaves it will retain flavors when dried vs. those from a cooler more humid place with delicate leaves that have water based flavors that will dry away.

Man, I need to start paying attention. That was posted this morning in a place where I saw it. The description sure sounded like a holiday weekend. I did a less well known peak.
