I was trying to get my sisters together to go grill some burgers and brats at my mom & dads, but my mom called me before i could even float the idea and told me she just wants gardening time and that we should stay home.  So there goes that idea. But if that's what she wants, it IS mother's day and I'm actually around this year since Fishing Opener is next weekend.

I will probably end up cooking Mrs. ThunderLund something.  Just don't know yet.  Maybe my two boys and I will make her a nice breakfast.

I'm probably going to go out there and see if there's any mushrooms left during the day tomorrow, anyway.  But then she knows that she doesn't have to clean the house or anything - that's her big thing, if the whole group were coming out she'd just stress about it and think that she'd have to clean the whole house top-to-bottom.  Just the kinda person she is.  Even though it's just her, my Dad and two cats.  I have a 5 and 8 year old; her house at its messiest is 100% better than my house at its cleanest.

We are going to head up to Two Harbors for lunch. The BIL & SIL  are cooking up things on the grill for my MIL and all of this way all the sisters can chat with their Mom.

Since we moved here 10 years ago we have gone up to Sportsman's for the Mother's Day Champagne brunch.  It is a fun tradition now.  We always look in the paper for other options buy none beat Sportsman's.  Lot's of food.  They also have all of the champagne and Bloody Marys you can have.  I have a bloody Mary and the wife has a Mamosa.  Then after all of the food and booze that early in the day it is nap time when we get home.  Will be a fun lazy day and will do some stuff in the yard.  Maybe start the garden.  Will do ribs later on and of course my first batch of potato salad of the year.

I did a 70 hr., 133F cook on a Brisket, Sous Vide after a 2 hr cold smoke with Mesquite. Best Brisket Sammies I've ever had. Made an Au Jus with Beef Stock, Onions, Roasted Garlic and the Juices from the Bag when I cracked it open. Dipped the Bun in the Au Jus, Couple slabs of Beef, a few Onions, a little Horseradish, and a light drizzle of Blackberry Blaze BBQ Sauce. Cowboy Beans and Cole Slaw on the side.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
