The price of steak has gone through the roof and launched toward the moon. Actually the price of everything has too. Safeway is our local grocery store and has weekly ad specials. They advertised U.S.D.A. Choice N.Y. strip bone-in steaks at 6.97/pd. This was a deal I could not pass up. I did have to jump through some hoops to get it. The selection was very limited. It was incorrectly priced. If you are a club member you get one price and if you are Joe Schmoe a higher price. Both of these prices were incorrect. To add insult to injury the clerk told me I was getting the correct discount until I showed her the newspaper add. We had to call a manager to referee. When all was said and done, the steaks were actually very good. I have a feeling this will never happen again at this price.
MAD MEAT GENIUS

We have traveled to Lincoln California to judge a KCBS one meat contest. Twenty two teams did battle cooking ribs. This was a fun event for the whole family. It had all the right moves. I even found bacon wrapped Oreo cookies. It does not get any better than this.

It has been an unusual weather year here in California. This summer has been very mild and the winter was severe. Our produce has been in turmoil. It seems like the crops are confused. When they do decide to produce it is a miracle of life. These are some of the best tomatos ever.

We knew we were at the right place when I found the booth selling chocolate covered bacon and white chocolate covered cheesecake with strawberry topping. We left our judges badges at home and had a great time. I never did get any shots of the cars because I was too busy eating. Sorry!
