    Chuck eye steak

    Have a taste for steak tonight so I went to the local store. Wanted to either get tenderloin or rib eyes. Butcher talked me into the chuck eye which were less than half the price of the others. He said I would not regret it. Anybody ever tried one?

    The challenge with chuck is that it is tough---albeit well marbled with fat.

    The fix is to first cook it using a sous vide and then sear it just prior to serving---it will be as tender as any thing you have ever had.

    Well I've gotten sidelined tonight a small tornado came through the neighborhood this afternoon and I'm without power. So we'll see how it goes at least I didn't suffer any damage.

    Thanks Ben I don't think we had any injuries around my house and neighborhood althoughthree people will were killed in the state. Mostly around me is lots of power poles snapped trees blown down and a few roofs off here and there. It lasted about 10 minutes and was gone. The closest the actual funnel was probably half mile from me. Like I said it was a small tornado I'm thinking a 0 or a 1

    Well I just got power back. I love my local power Co-op. Not for profit and hometown service. That said the steaks will have to wait until tomorrow. I like Dave's idea so I think that is where I will go since I have never tried it. Will let you guys know.

    Not that anyone would care since it's mostly terribly unimportant it seems It's been determined that a tornado did not actually touchdown instead there were some devastating straight line winds that caused all of this Havoc. Either way it goes It's Over Now

    I don't see any difference between being wiped out by a tornado and being wiped out by straight line winds. Either way sucks! Glad you are okay.

    Coincidentally, my bedtime reading is still on Morison's WWII Naval Operations history (I'm on Vol. XIII), and last night I was reading of the typhoon that Adm. Halsey's fleet weathered 13/18/1944...Meteorology in the Pacific was not what it is today, and none of them even knew a typhoon was present until they were in it...The heaviest ships were the battleships (Halsey's flag flew on the New Jersey BB-62) which were tossed around but all stayed upright...The fleet carriers (CV) suffered damage from aircraft breaking loose from their moorings on the hangar deck and sliding into other equipment and aircraft, starting fires and damaging the ship...146 aircraft were lost overboard, but the worst were those in the air flying recon and CAP duties which suddenly had no place to land...

    The light carriers (CVL) took damage but the escort carriers (CVE), through luck, sailor's skills and the Grace of God, did better...The carriers were not all heavy ships, although the fleet carriers such as the Yorktown class, displaced over 32,000 tons, but the flight decks on all the carriers acted like a sheet thrown to the wind...The worst experience was suffered by the destroyers (DD), most of which were very low on fuel and lightly ballasted...They were also mostly commanded and crewed by younger reservists with little training foe such weather...Three destroyers were lost, one if which had only six survivors to report the story after rescue...After all was said and done, Adm. Halsey faced court martial, but the court of inquiry cleared him and those in his command of responsibility, a decision which still sparks arguments even today...

    Sorry for the hijack, back to talk of steak dinners on the mess deck now......Ben

    Just had to bring up mess deck, hey

    In 1963, I was awarded an all expense paid cruise across the Pacific.
    The only thing required of me for said award was to pull KP every other day for the entire cruise. The cruise line provided me a berth on the USS General W A Mann.

    Between San Francisco and Pearl Harbor we lost a boiler---but like any fine line---the cruise went on--albeit now extended to 28 days. But, surrounded by 5000 fellow tourists, how could such a trifle detail be bad.

    But bad it got, about 5 days out of Yokohama Japan we encountered a typhoon. Unable to out run or out maneuver the devil our strategy was to hold on! I might have been the only one on board that did not get sea sick

    We spent three days trying to keep the bow into the wind and preventing our stomachs from turning inside out. On the second and worst day I was on KP---possibly the best place I could be---no dishes to wash and not a lot of folks sharing the contents of their stomach.

    Overall, that cruise still ranks as number one in the assault on my dignity.

Halsey's fleet...The typhoon in December 1944 was very small in its center, but packed winds estimated at 110-130 knots...They all used glass barometers which would not read below 27.00...Estimates of true barometric pressure was as low as 26.60...Unlike Atlantic and Caribbean hurricanes with which we're familiar, This one had a center so small that when a ship broke through the inner wall, it had only a minute before hitting the opposite wall and reverse wind directions...This meant that the lighter ships which had time to ballast the windward side of the ship with seawater were suddenly blown the other way with the weight on the wrong side...

    The highest recorded list angle of any of the ships was 76°...One group commander lost his footing after the bridge windows had been smashed, and managed to grab a stanchion of the bridge railing...A witness said he hung on like a trapeze artist with his body straight out toward the sea, but managed to survive...Oddly although the destroyers took the worst beatings, the even lighter and smaller destroyer escorts (DE) had little damage...Some of this was attributed to their commanders being more experienced knowing that going dead in the water under certain circumstances, and using all power to transfer ballast as necessary could have better results than fighting a useless battle against the sea...

    It was said that from some of the ships the seas were breaking so high they looked like skyscrapers...The ships were tossed around to the point where some of the carrier decks were scooping green water from the sea and tossing it against the ship's island, drenching the bridge...My Uncle Vernon in his 103 foot wooden ship dodged that one, but was later trapped in the one that struck next April at time of the Okinawa invasion...Given the choice, I think I'll avoid any ocean voyages in the future......Ben
