    Morning, boys.
    -32C/-26F

    Actually.... I think I really only needed to type the "F" in the preceding sentence.

    Looking good! What is reverse seared? Oven cooked to temperature and then seared on the grill?

    Nice!

    Good luck for next weekend.

    :hug:

    I know the feeling. I watched DD dance for 16 straight years. Constant back and forth to dance classes, rehearsals, competitions, recitals... Then it all stops and you wonder what the heck happened.

    Not bad... not bad.... :)

    That's the one mate. When the steaks are that thick just sticking 'em in a pan ruins 'em.

    Good luck to Declan in his last game and to you watching it.

    Nice job, looks great!
    Best of luck that Declan and the team bring his Dad more games to watch and memories to be made. Enjoy Darcy

    Afternoon Guys,

    Got to watch one more win this morning, 92-55. That gives them the third seed and they will get to stay in the city for next weekend. Declan picked up a couple of questionable fouls early so didn't see a lot of time given the game was never in doubt. He did get some time in the 3rd until picking up another foul. Played the 4th though and came away with 10 points. Next weekend's games are the provincial quarters and semis. The quarter-final match up is a good one for them, beat the team about a month ago fairly easily. Get through that one and they will have a tough match up. Hoping for the best and I will be cheering from the other side of the country.

    Great that you got to see another game. Totally did not connect that you would traveling for 18 days with the playoffs still going on. Best of luck to Declan and the team.

    Happy Sunday. Been a long day at work.

    Here's a close up.

    20190210_201453.jpg

    I wanted the shield. Oldest dd picked out the design.. it was fun to spend time with her as the teenage girl years have been rough.

    We made it 10 years for dance with oldest before moving on to swim. Youngest has tried them all. Dance was the worst. I love them, but watching some of their HS sports is rough.

    Reverse searing sounds good. I've never tried that. One Captain is fine. For example, it's Captain Jack Sparrow.

    When you come to live with me, you can officially forego the doffing of hats in lieu of making good steaks. ;)
    Sounds really good. I will need to try the reverse searing method...had never heard of that.

    I think new favorite niece might be more accurate since you're my new Disdad brother!

    Morning, gents.
    Not much to report from the North. Still cold.
    Just have another 30 minutes to go then I'm off for 3 (maybe). Plan on catching up on some house chores that've been neglected for a bit and... doing nothing.

    Wow! That's great news.

    It's tough for me too. I used to take the girls out of school when they were younger - the schools here don't really have all those metrics and strict attendance criteria. It's more of a personal choice here. Missing school when they were younger wasn't a big deal. As they got older it's harder to catch up when you miss a couple weeks of school work.
    That leaves me with the inferno of Florida summers. But oldest DD needs to get summer jobs to help pay for university (I am helping her out, but she needs to help herself out too). The problem with most summer jobs is you don't get vacation time, either you work the whole summer, or don't take the job. She lucked into one last year at the ice cream shop where they didn't mind. Without knowing what her work situation is, it's hard to plan. I will soon have to make the hard decision to leave her out of the planning. She's 19 in a few weeks. Perhaps it's about that time anyway.

    Looks like you guys are having a great time!

    Looks fantastic. I have heard of reverse searing but have never tried it.
    I always see the chefs on TV searing in the pan and then finish in the oven.

    Yes, you're in that F'd up zone where there isn't much difference between the Celsius and Fahrenheit numbers.
    It's not quite as cold here this morning, -9C but a wicked strong wind giving -23 windchill.

    Oldest DD didn't have anything that she did a lot. A little dance, a little piano.
    Youngest DD is heavy into dance, at least one class every day. It will be strange when that comes to an end.

    Glad that you got to see him play over the weekend, and good that you got to see them win.
    Best of luck to them.

    Nice that you got to spend some time with her. The teenage years are never that easy, some worse than others of course.
    My first DD wasn't too bad getting through it.
    I think the second one is going to be rough. She's only 11 but going on 16.

    Did get down to -40 the other day. That's where they meet.

    Heh. "wicked strong", eh?

    ::yes::

    I don't get to Popeye's much, but I seem to remember them having a decent meal for fast food.

    I don't think I've ever been to Bojangles. For fast food, I usually go with Chick Fil-A and then there's a steep dropoff to the other chains.

    Chick Fil-A over KFC is always the right call.

    More proof that you don't have to look far to find someone who has it worse.

    This.

    Hey, good choice! :thumbsup2

    Well done, sir. The cook, I mean, not the actual temperature of the steak.

    :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I'm sure that hurts a bit. Hope he does well.

    :scared1: Does this mean I'm out?

    Put on some coffee and stay indoors!
