Ribeye cap steak in the sous vide at 128 for about 2 hours. Thunderstorms kept me inside so I gave it the cast iron treatment. Whipped up a little rub w/ some random ingredients: SPOG, oregano, thyme and a little smoked paprika. EVOO and butter in the very hot pan. When the steaks were off to rest, I put some zucchini and broccolini in the pan to sautée. And of course, the obligatory tots. Paired up with the best $8 wine out there: CC Grand Estates Cabernet.

They were sealed in a box, then sealed in a metallic bag of sorts for extra protection. When opened every single shell was broken into multiple pieces....

So we had basically tostada's and broken ones at that.

When we go the cheap taco route, we don't even try the shells. We buy a big bag of nachos and do it that way.

Moving day is in about two weeks for my parents. So the fam is getting together over there tonight for 'The Last Supper'. I made up some fresh salsa and guac to bring.

Was expecting it to be a rain-out today but nothing so far. Actually feels like summer for a change. A line of storms is about an hour away, so my choice of making a sauce/ragù from my garden tomatoes was probably a good call. I follow (pretty closely for me) a recipe from Gary Ibsen's The Great Tomato book, page 106 (if you have the book) from Joan Nielson. First image shows sweating the veges, second is adding the beef (yes, not ground fowl) and eventually red wine (added some Cab Sauv), last one was adding back in the fresh tomato sauce. Will have to cook down for a few more hours, so plan on drinking a few beverages and watching the extra moisture evaporate. Will serve with a salad, grilled green tomatoes and some home made garlic bread. Maybe even a few yellow waxed beans if I venture into the yard before the storms hit.

Edit: Yikes, watch what you wish for...tornado on the ground about 35 miles north of me. Intense line of storms will hit us within the hour. Guess I'll stay in the safety of my basement with a small cooler of beer
