then, outta nowhere ... somebody comes and hits you with an "ooh-la-la-la, ooh-la-la-la, ooooh!"

Even people who think all the best music is from the 60's and 70's will still dig this one

Barbequed Bone-In Turkey Breast is one of my favorite things to make ...

Something like this ... though I can't afford this top-shelf of product, just including this cause it's a good pic of what I'm talking about.

It's so easy, so good.

Unpackage, rinse, put in a deep aluminum pan, and use some balled foil to hold it upright. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs (I love Thyme and/or Rosemary), or shove some sprigs under the skin.

What I do is put it on the Weber Kettle, indirect method with each basket about 2/3 full, plop the bird in the middle, and cook to 160F internal. Takes about 1.25-1.75 hours. I have a temp gauge that transmits to my phone and rings me when it hits 160F. That ... is an awesome tool, btw.

Oh, also, toss some wood chips in the baskets right before you close the top. Apple, Oak, and Mesquite all work great, and give the bird distinctive flavors (I guarantee you I could tell you if a bird was cooked with any of those 3 woods, and which one was used )

Then remove when it hits the temp, put foil over, and a towel, and let it sit for about 10 mins.

It comes out freaking awesome and you have delicious, lean turkey breast for sandwiches (WAAAAY better than lunch meat style turkey breast!), or to put on salads ... for about 5-6 servings. It's also STELLAR for making turkey soup. Can also make some gravy from the drippings but not a lot, it doesn't put out that much drippings in general.

Pic of one I made ...

van morrison - into the mystic - take 11 (studio-1970) slightly different take from the one you know

from the deluxe reissue of Moondance, and it's pretty damn cool I have to say.

It's taken since Saturday afternoon, but little Jean Luc has emerged from under the bed!

I mean, he's been out a few times when I was awake ... who knows what he was up to when I was asleep ... but overall, it took about 3 days for the baby to decide that it's safe to come out and explore in daylight hours.

He is absolutely stunning-looking, an utter love-bug, and soft as can be!

And perhaps most auspicious, he's down with hanging out on the 15" subwoofer while music is on (not LOUD or anything, but it was playing!)

Well if this ain't the cutest darn thing ... even the Kitteh likes her!

I have a bit of an odd affinity for Leo Sayer, I gotta say ...

Dude was a very good songwriter, had vocal talent, and was all around just a crack-up ...



And I honestly love this performance ... probably thought 3 Dog Night wrote this song, eh?



Or maybe you thought Roger Daltrey wrote this one?

So ... my dear Auntie didn't make it, and now it's time to divide up her 6 kittehs ...

I'm thinking of taking on 8 y.o. Jean Luc (my aunt was a huge Francophile and went there pretty much yearly in her retirement ... hence the cat name!).

He's a purebred Burmese ... and I lost my Siamese Snowshoe boy at 17.5 yo January 2021 ... I know this is limited evidence, but ... do you think I oughta have my cousin bring him over to stay with ol' Mr L?
