Hitching Post Products – BBQ2YOU

I’m getting ready to either change the name of Hooked On Golf Blog to Hooked On Food Blog, or start a whole new blog dedicated to food. Since introducing the “lifestyle” section here, I’ve been swamped with some incredible culinary products. Wait a minute… forget all of that. I should start up Hooked On Hot Babes Blog… I digress.

Bachelor alert

Are you a bachelor or just a crappy cook who thinks macaroni and cheese is gourmet? Is Top Ramen considered the 7th food group? Read on.

Hitching Post Products has a very cool product/service. They make complete high quality meals or individual food dishes which they ship to you. All you have to do in order to prepare them is boil water. I realize boiling water may be difficult, but if I figured it out so can you. The meat items are open flame BBQ’d over a red oak fire pit and seasoned. Woa.

Last night I was in full on bachelor mode. I looked at the case of Top Ramen I bought at Costco and thought…nope. I thought of making a PB&J, but that wasn’t’ going to go with the merlot I was enjoying. Frosted Flakes don’t go well with merlots either…. Then I remembered I had a steak dinner in my freezer. This was my chance to test out the stuff the Hitching Post sent me.

New York steak & garlic bread, preparation in 15-20 minutes

Not much golf blogging today for me.  I’m recovering from the intense game last night where my Utah Utes beat TCU 13-10 in the last seconds of the game.  What an incredible victory to improve to 10-0 and on track to another BCS busting season.

Last night’s game was a “black out” which meant all the fans were to wear black:

Excellent news from Madrid. Seve Ballesteros’ condition has improved since his 3rd brain tumor surgery. Seve is now able to breathe on his own. He is conscious and has been able to speak to his relatives.

This is good. Keep it up Seve. We’re all pulling for you man.


Daly update

John Daly has some quotes about his night in jail after passing out in North Carolina in or near a Hooters (he says it wasn’t IN the Hooters where he passed out):

“Nothing is going right in my life right now. I’m going through a hell of a divorce. I haven’t seen my son. It was an unfortunate incident, but it’s a joke what people are saying. I take full responsibility for what happened, but it wasn’t that big of a deal.”

“The thing I want people to know is when I called my girlfriend at 11:30 p.m., I was going back to the bus to go sleep. I’m not going to say I wasn’t drunk. I did have a few drinks.”

What amazing quotes. JD is going through a divorce of his 3rd wife (or is it 4th I’ve lost count) and he’s already got some other woman he’s calling his girlfriend?  JD shouldn’t call his current squeeze his girlfriend, rather his “next ex.”

And how does one get some sort of extra negativity out of people reporting that he was passed out in (or near) a Hooters drunk?   I’m sorry, but if I’m found passed out in a Hooters just put me out of my misery right then and there.
