It just wasn't very good, look at the stacks of Sysco boxes when you park in the back and walk past the'kitchen'.

That was my 1st thought, but in truth when I was young I ate a lot of Vienna sausage, potted meat, dried shrimp, Slim Jims and other assorted trash meats.
On a dare we used to drop a Slim Jim in a bottle of Coke, let it dissolve, then drink that gr...

I just looked through the 'classic' replays for the next week on the Alab...SEC Network. If you didn't know that the Tiger were the winningest SEC in the last decade, you would think they are on the level of Vanderbilt or Kentucky. None of the replays featuring LSU are LSU wins.

Forgetting politics, the man is extremely annoying. He looks like Gollum, he doesn't speak, he screeches. He is that kid on the block that you didn't let in your tree house because he would rat you out if someone hid a Playboy there.

Common sense say the thicker the steak the closer it should be to room temp, but that is a function of the surface temp of the grill too. I use the poke method, and when blood bubbles form get them off the grill fast, they are medium rare.

We got lazy, neglected to deflower the basil, so I pulled it up last weekend, about 5 large plants. Sat on the patio and harvested all the leaves and filled a 6 quart container. After all the EVOO, parmesan, garlic and pignolis I ended up with about quart or more of pesto, some I froze.
