Hymn #365

A Southern Baptist Minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said,

"If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

Sermon complete, he then sat down. The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, Shall We Gather at the River."

Lounging at the movies: The Missing, School Of Rock

The Missing
We always have a place in our hearts for cowboys and Indians, or in this case Indians and Indians, or Indians and Indian wantabees, doesn't matter. Basically the women of the open range are being kidnapped for open trade, the slave trade, white slavery, a white sale, if you will.

Tommy Lee Jones, who had left his family when they were young to wander among Indians and was named 'Shit For Luck' by his Indian friends. Anyway, he returns to a not so friendly reception but soon becomes a useful resource to find his Granddaughter who is now missing. His Indian training is a handy tool against the structured but fumbling white dudes in to the Calvary, who are attempting to help as well.

There is cruel death, fighting, a little Indian witch craft, and some humor. We liked it.

School Of Rock
Jack Black, Mike White, Joan Cusack and a bunch of others.

Dewey Finn (Jack) is a little down on his luck. His band fires him and he owes a little back rent to his buddy. As a die hard rocker and really funny individual, Dewey takes a job in a prep school under the assumed identity of his room mate. He teaches the class of uptight kids the rules of ROCK. This movie, created by the same guy who gave us the incredible waste of time named "Chuck and Buck", is redeeming. Mike White gave us the premise and Jack Black pulls it off. We could not remember the last time we laughed so hard at a guy and a his dream. If you are looking for something meaningful or you are a film snob, don't waste your time. If you like to laugh and have some time to kill we highly recommend School Of Rock and a six pack.

B. K. Lounge Eats: Pressed Cubans

Cuban sandwiches are the king of the hill for grilled sandwiched. American grilled cheese does not hold a candle to this double grilled, pressed and created with love, sandwich. We were very excited about this Dagwoodesque grilled cheese sandwich and have learned that once you understand the concept of gooey cheese, meat and crunchy pickles you can create this sandwich in any variety you wish.

Although the procedure is time consuming you will find it tolerable through the use of the Mojito, recipe above.

2 pound pork tenderloin cut in half or two 1 pound tenderloins, whatever you want.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small onion, minced
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 limes zested
1 large orange zested
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon course black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano

Sandwich Rolls
4 teaspoons sugar

2 Large Dill Pickles sliced thin end to end
1 pound shaved honey baked ham
1 pound shaved swiss cheese
Onion sliced thin
4 Tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cover the tenderloin with extra virgin olive oil.

Combine the onion, garlic, lime zest, orange zest, salt, pepper and oregano in a pile on the cutting board. Rub and pack the mixture on the tenderloin evenly using all of it. Heat a large skillet with a little extra virgin olive oil and sear the tenderloin on all sides until it is light brown and wonderful. Placed the seared tenderloin in a roasting pan and roast for 25 minutes.

While waiting enjoy your Mojito and brush the sandwich rolls with warm water and sprinkle with sugar. Place rolls on a baking sheet and toss them in the oven with the tenderloin, but only for about 5 minutes.

When tenderloin is done, remove from oven and let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing thin.

Preheat a large iron skillet or griddle to medium high.

Assemble sandwiches as follows; bottom of sandwich roll, cheese, relish, shaved honey baked ham, pickles, sliced tenderloin, onion more relish and more cheese. Put the top on and get a Cuban to press it down, just kidding. On the hot skillet with the butter, place the sandwich on the grill and put something heavy on it to press it down. In 2 minutes or so the sandwich roll becomes toasty, brown and grilled with cheese oozing out around the edges. Flip the sandwich over as to grill the other side, pressed as well. Serve warm.

Phobia Of The Month:
Xylophobia: Fear of the forest.

Can you be Xylophobic if you can't see the forest because of the trees, Or would you just be another Dendrophic (afraid of trees).
