Another tire issue and food

July 18th, 2017 at 07:05 am

So as if the patched tire wasn't stress enough, I started my 8 hour drive to Boston on Saturday morning - 2 am to be exact. About an hour into the drive, the low tire pressure light came on. I sent my location to my brother, got him on the phone, and stopped at a gas station to check it. Turns out, there was a nail in a completely different tire!! What rotten luck...this one was even closer to the sidewall and not even all the way in which is why it was leaking air. I think we're going to have to bite the bullet and get them both replaced. Even though the first one was patched, I think the tread wear would be different enough that we should probably just do both, but we'll see what our family friend says. I need to mail my friend's gift up to her.

I made a sausage stew-type thing yesterday and used up half a red onion and half a green, yellow, and orange bell pepper, corn, broccoli, and mushrooms. It turned out pretty yummy. I have those leftovers over rice today and tomorrow. Tonight, I pick up 40 lbs. of ground beef from Zaycon Fresh. I'm excited to try it as we don't really cook with ground beef since it's so expensive. I think this was right around $2.50/lb. for the 93% lean beef. I'll probably cook a big batch in the electric skillet and freeze the rest in 1 lb. batches.

I need to pick up cokes, deli meat, and salad mix tonight. We don't normally keep sodas on hand, but my little brother drinks them. I also have a recipe for a Coke tenderloin in the crockpot that I want to try with the defrosted tenderloin sitting in my fridge.

    Not wishing to sound argumentative, I hesitate to suggest you reconsider your plan to cook your beef 'tenderloin' using a method typical to tenderize the toughest cuts from front quarter like 'chuck.' Tenderloin is very expensive, very tender and benefits from roasting by weight with an important wait to allow juices to recirculate within for moist, juicy results

    Snafu, mine is a pork tenderloin and was only $3. I'm not very good at distinguishing all the different cuts of meat. I just sift through what's on sale/looks like it would be easy to cook and then google until I find something interesting to try with it. I'm always open to recipes though, so never hesitate to suggest something different!

    That's unfortunate with the tires. Yuck on having to replace them.
