Get Your Freak On

By Bob on February 4, 2013 3:03 AM

Since my father passed away, I've been steadily making my way through decades of historical artifacts. It's hard to imagine WHY people keep stuff, but Ima telling y'all I never know just WHAT I'll find next.

Sometimes, the stuff is downright weird. Like this story I found at the bottom of a 1920's newspaper article on my grandfather:

Freaks Sought-432.jpgI Googled Captain Salisbury and couldn't find any mention of him finding freaks in China or Africa. Hell, for all I know he gave up his cockeyed idea and was just content to have a steak named after him. 

Ol' Capt'n Sal didn't have to go all the way to China to find freaks. There are plenty of 'em everywhere if you just look at...  

...what I found in our Colleywood backyard. 

No, this isn't Captain Salisbury's cousin Captain Nemo, but he could pass for him with this fancy suit. This guy was sandblasting our pool and needed the getup to keep from blasting his own self.

Definitely not a freak. Just a smart guy. 

Alien Attack-462.jpgI'll let you know if I run into any men with tails while I continue by journey through family artifacts. Until then, we'll just have to make do with this photo and maybe a Salisbury Steak.

We like them piled HIGH with lean meat that's been slow cooked until it's so tender it practically shreds itself. Add a sweet-and-spicy sauce that lets the delicious beef flavor shine through and you've got the main ingredients for one of our go-to meals.

Adapted from an idea in a Fix It and Forget-It cookbook, this simply delicious recipe turns everyday chuck roast into a bbq lover's delight. It takes around 10 hours, start to finish, but most of that time (9 hours) is hands off while the crockpot works its magic.

St. Vincent

St. Vincent is one of the best movies of 2014 you probably overlooked. It's a great curmudgeon comedy/drama with a terrific cast and a not-so-preachy feel-good message. 

Bill Murray (America's film treasure) is Vincent, a Viet Nam vet whose life choices have left him without much of a life. That is, until Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and her son Oliver move in next door. Maggie's a single mom trying to make ends meet without unraveling the fragile ties that bind her and her family together.
