In a World

In a world where a guy was making good money from dis-assembling ‘failed’ batteries and re-assembling the good parts into good batteries, where is the person killing it on this?

Denton Blues Fest

You can’t see them in the picture but there are a bunch of folks here. They are just hiding in the shade where it’s 94. I’d toast up pretty good if I was out in the sun.

Cleaning the Dryer Vent

Cleaned out the dryer vent tonight. The house is 20 years old and safe to say this hasn’t been cleaned since the house was built. Yes. That brown stuff is straw from a birds nest that was built in here at some point.

Grilling Bacon an Experiment

We don’t like frying bacon in the RV, it seems we can never get the smell out. We bought some bacon for collared greens and had a lot left over. We decided to try grilling it. Everything is better grilled and it seems like bacon is no exception. 

It flared up quite a lot but we noticed that really didn’t hurt anything. The fat burned off and left us with very smokey tasting bacon. The fire was a bit too hot and some of the strips did curl up but most of them came out great. Next time I’d use fewer coals. 

I’m having another BLT today and just heated the bacon in the microwave for a few seconds and its perfect. This might be our way to have bacon on the road.

Cocktail Day You Say?

Not that it changed my behavior but I hear it’s cocktail day today so I’m doing my part. Out to see a show and celebrate making it through another week.

I’m Not a Geek or Anything

So we don’t buy traditional tourist collectables when we travel, it’s a sticker for the laptop or something specific to the country. These are what we picked up for Costa Rica. We want to do more international cooking and all of the recipes are in metric, this will help bridge the gap for us.

I feel ignorant in that I only speak a very broken Spanish, so we’re also going to label everything in the kitchen in French and Spanish. It might be a tough year but I’m hoping to be able to speak reasonably when we go to Spain.

Wrapping up the beach stop

We’ve spent 6 days in Jaco Costa Rica and we’re just waiting on transportation transportation back to San Jose. We’ll be spending the last few days of the vacation in the Capitol unless we see an interesting tour.

The stay here in Jaco has been very relaxing. Other than the realization that this Beach town is just as expensive as most in the States and that the food is uniformly better prepared it’s been uneventful.
