I love the story and every time I though about this TD I came back The Happy Enchilada

They still turned out pretty good but I had to resort to the indoor appliances Oh Well you win some you lose some.

Thanks so much for posting this, Ric. I've never heard of John Prine or the Happy Enchilada song. Some of the most moving music is just a person singing and playing guitar and I loved listening to and watching the video. Enchiladas look good, too, thanks for playing even though Mother Nature sent you to your room. At least you went to the kitchen....

I love this picture. Simple and beautiful steak. Did that Rev eat so much steak he turned into a steer?

Great story, Paul. I would have been star-struck, too, and how cool that Cliff's mother was there in conservative mode. After reading your entry I took a quick google peek and found out Cliff's first music love was classical and first instrument was the piano. Makes the picture you painted of his mother in that heavy metal room even funnier. The chicken looks marvelous, wow, I have a tripod campfire contraption I'm going to try doing something like that with this summer.

This is farkin' hilarious! I love it! Delicious, creative and effective. Your song inspiration is a breath of fresh air after that last snowstorm. I so love Ella's voice and Louis' intro was beautiful -- one of those times when the sum of music exceeds the individuals. Thanks for sharing, Gore, and I so agree with you about the brussels sprouts. I call them martian brains.

Seriously, those low-budget rolls look like a million bucks and I'd love to set in to some. Loved all the music, Slow Ride is perfect for BBQ and I haven't heard that Kinks song in ages, thank you.

Can any of you fine folks pm me with info on how to embed video in a post? Trying to put together my entry, simply cannot get it to work, and it'll be a total loss without the proper musical accompaniments...

If the video is on YouTube all you have to do is copy the URL then paste it in your post and the site will automatically embed it for you.

Thanks; as usual, I was apparently overcomplicating things...

First off, Kathy...THANK YOU for this concept. Music is a passion of mine (listening mainly, as I have no talent other than a voice that just barely doesn't make people run out of the room screaming), and there are many artists whose work has touched my life. Because of this, this TD has a special meaning to me. Busy work week, but I had my cook all planned for lunch on Saturday before working in the evening...but a few unforeseen events threw a monkey wrench in things. Mainly, I wasn't able to get many pictures and wasn't able to complete my plate the way I would have liked. So, instead I will focus on the backstory in a vain attempt to make up for a less than stellar process. Also, as mentioned earlier, I'm having problems figuring out how to embed video from Youtube. Tried for the last 2 hours but can't get it to work, so I'm giving up. All you get are links.

For my entry, I chose to focus on Aaron Lewis, the front man for Staind and newly converted country artist. Aaron's music...indeed, his life...has always been extremely familiar to me. Like him, I grew up suffering from depression and low self-esteem. He has often said that he used to "feel very alone" when he was younger, which is something I can relate to. My parents weren't abusive, but were very strict, and my dad (like many) was very distant. My dad is a retired police sergeant, and as a counselor once told me, "It seems like your home is run very much like a police academy." Please understand, I'm not complaining; I love my dad and I feel like he did as decent a job as anyone could have. I just provide this as explanation for my connection with Aaron's music:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbfsFR0s-_A

The more I listened to Staind's music, the stronger a connection I felt with Aaron Lewis and his lyrics. Through the music of Staind, I finally found the words to describe who I was and how I felt inside:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bobskjQwWI
The music of Staind became highly therapeutic for me, and as Mr. Lewis seemed to figure out his feelings of self-doubt and lack of confidence, I too began to better understand who I was:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBFDFEiQrx4
As I said, I've always felt a connection to Aaron's music, and that hasn't stopped now that he's gone solo as a country artist. I love the outdoors, am (for the most part) pretty conservative in my political views, I'm deeply appreciative and supportive of our country's men and women in uniform, and I've never been afraid to speak my mind (even when it gets me in trouble). SO ultimately, my direct inspiration for this cook came from Aaron's single, "Country Boy:"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KmUm66juvE
I'm not really the "star-struck" type, but I've always said that Aaron Lewis is a guy I'd love to hang out and have a few beers or maybe go fishing with. So, I went into this cook with that thought in mind.

I pulled a couple of venison steaks out of the freezer...


Made a simple marinade:


Bagged it all up and tossed it in the fridge overnight:


To go with them, I took some asparagus, drizzled it with soy sauce and added a bit of garlic and just a touch of ginger:


Now, here's where my pics get a bit sketchy. See, I've been shopping for a good used truck, and I'm fairly picky, which means I've been looking for just over 3 months. Saturday morning, in the middle of my prep and cook, I found one and spent an hour talking and negotiating prices over the phone. In fact, I ended up having to leave for work just as the steaks were finishing up; my wife actually pulled them off the grill and photographed. So, here is my money shot; while I didn't get to enjoy them fresh, I did have this waiting for me when I got home from work, and the steaks did turn out very nicely at a near perfect medium rare.



My apologies for the lack of pics and the technical difficulties; not my best entry, but as I said, this was a theme that meant a lot to me and I wanted to make sure I got an entry in, even if I wasn't able to put my best foot forward. Thanks for looking!

This is a down right battle of the bands quality TD here. It is A+ entry after A+ entry ... and Gore.

Great job to everyone, and the stories were awesome too.

Whoo Hoo! Farked up again. Now where is Guerry with that little inspiration of his?

Of course I do wonder about a Bell curve with all A+ and one Fark-up. Seems more like a bimodal distribution composed of two delta functions to me.
