Spent all day on the podcast...sometimes the 45-minute podcast takes an hour or so...sometimes it takes a full 8-hour day. Today was of the full 8-hour variety. It is what it is, and I love the podcast (as you know). So I finished the podcast, walked the hound and started planning dinner.
Monday is Margarita Monday, as you guys know (as created by my Sweetie). Tonight I wanted to try something different...while I was at the Hippie Dippy Super Market in Boulder last weekend (a.k.a. Whole Foods), I found a sack of Meyers lemons...Meyers are very mild lemons with a hint of a orangey tang, so I bought a sack. The recipe I concocted was 1 1/2 ounces of Meyers lemon juice, 1 1/4 ounces of Corazon Reposada tequila and 1 ounce of Patron Citronge liqueur. I also add a tiny amount of agave sweetener (no more than 1/2 teaspoon), to taste. This makes a mild, wonderfully tasteful margarita. Enjoy it in good health!
On the salmon, I did a 3 chili (ancho, negro, New Mexico red)/honey/lemon juice rub. Coat the salmon on the non-skin side with the rub. If you cook the salmon on the stovetop, which was necessary since it was snowing sideways at the Secret Hidden Bunker, go with 4 minutes on the skin side, flip it over and do 2 minutes on the rub side. I use a cast iron skillet (as usual) heated to very hot. Cooking fish requires a light touch no matter where you cook it, and it takes practice.
This podcast talks about selecting the 7.62 MBR. Surprised, I'm going to come down on the FAL as my personal choice...I believe the PTR series is the best for preppers who don't already own a 7.62, specifically because of the inexpensive magazines. If you don;\'t own a semiauto, I'm gonna say go with the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle as the first 7.62, followed by a MBR. In my own case, I believe the Colt LE901 is going to be the MBR of my dreams, as soon as I add a great trigger, a different muzzle brake/comp and maybe juggle the stock...add a high-zoot optic...
