Specials good 6/13-6/16/2012

Hello Everyone!

We have some Father's Day Specials going on this week. Since Father's are usually

the ones that like to sit by the grill and throw some great meat on it, we have some great things that they'd enjoy at a reasonable price...Bone-in Ribeye, Walleye Fillets, or even Hot Italian Sausage for a great appetizer or with some sautéed onions and green peppers. This week I'm going to talk about the California Tri Tip. When I cook one of these on the grill, I usually put a "boat" of aluminum foil down under it, and lay it fat-side up. Grill it indirectly for about 45 minutes with your favorite steak seasoning...I like to marinate mine for a couple minutes before with our Robust Ribeye Marinade! Then, after 45 minutes, you can take it off and let it rest a minute or two and slice it against the grain, and eat it like you would a steak. It's great eating and really popular in California, that's why it's called a California Tri Tip.

A couple of updates...for those of you who know my dad, he had heart-valve replacement surgery last Monday and is doing really well!! Thanks for all of your prayers and concern.

Also, thanks for your encouragement with the remodel project...it went very successfully and we're still getting ideas to fill the case by the meat counter up. If you have any suggestions of things you'd like to see, I'm certainly open to them (within reason, of course :)) Also, I should probably get some updated pictures for those of you who live out of town and just get this because you like the jokes, or like to read :).

There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and
was a real "miser" when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife..."When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."
And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he
died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.

Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting
there - dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When
they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a moment!"
She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put
it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled
it away. So her friend said, "Girl, I know you were not fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm a Christian; I cannot go back on my
word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket
with him."
You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?"
"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my
account, and wrote him a check...If he can cash it, then he can spend it."
