Out of the Blue

After having my grilling plans crossed up last week, last night I finally fired off the BlueGrill for the first time this spring. Steak did end up winning the day, as we shared a nice Black Angus porterhouse, which, along with some hot Italian sausage and grilled asparagus made for a fine spread.

LOL. This is timely. I'm playing Mirror's Edge now! I'm stuck on the boat with the hockey-masked, asshole Assassin. I don't know how to "kill" him.

10. Autism and Chernobyl Apr 26, 2010, 20:39 jdreyer
 
It's interesting that the increase in Autism began in 1987. Today is anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident, which happened in 1986. Recent studies show that the amount of radiation released was many times greater than initially thought and many, many times greater than that released from the bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Thyroid cancer rates world wide have gone way up since Chernobyl, I wonder if somehow it's related, although there's not a known direct mechanism the way there is with the thyroid as far as I know.

American Beauty. Good movie. Can't believe it came out 11 years ago.

That movie changed my life in so many ways. It was like a slap in the face. It really is never too late to get your life back!

When I saw Blue mention asparagus I immediately thought of the scene I quoted.

Carolyn Burnham: How dare you speak to me that way in front of her. And I marvel that you can be so contemptuous of me, on the same day that you LOSE your job.
Lester Burnham: Lose it? I didn't lose it. It's not like, "Whoops! Where'd my job go?" I QUIT. Someone pass me the asparagus.

Yay valve for forcing a steam UI change that takes more clicks to do everything I normally want to do, has much uglier and harder to read text, and takes up much more resources.

Anything wrapped in prosciutto is immediately 100 times better.

Salt, pepper, and olive oil -- simple as can be.

Drizzle it with some balasamic to relly make it pop. The vinegar caremalizes and adds a sweet/sour component that'll knock your socks off.

Personally I prefer grilling belgian endive and raddichio, sliced in half with oil/balsamic/S&P. The endive in partiuclar is just beyond nummy done that way.

"grilled asparagus", eh? Hmmm, might have to try that.

A neat (but expensive) twist is to wrap the asparagus in prosciutto, which turns into crispy uber-bacon on the grill.
