My cooking tragedies
Tried to cook a goose on the Weber. The drip pan was too small. Grease caught fire and flames rose 10 feet abouve the grill. Ordered chinese carryout for the guests.

Miso-Glazed Skirt Steak
Had it last night. We found Minute Miso in Roger's Supermarket in St. Joe. We went to Falatic's meat market and they didn't have skirt steak, suggested flank steak. We followed the recipe and we all thought it was great. It is tender when it is cooked at least to medium. Rarer, as Chef John said, is tough. Surley wondered why her's/his was tough and it was because they cooked it rare. I'm going to make it for company.

Peanut Noodles
We liked it very much. Next time I will get sesame oil. I used 1 T of Olive and 1 T of roasted sesame seeds. I wanted to keep the czarbs down so instead of Noodles I used Quinoa and mixed it with the sauce. Used Splenda instead of sugar.
