UPC’s Fig-Paste Slathered 8-Hour Ribs 3

UPC’s Fig-Paste Slathered 8-Hour Ribs I didn’t sleep well last night, and I don’t really know why. I’m not usually concerned with my sleep for two reasons: 1. I always sleep well. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always sleep long enough! But when I sleep, it’s always good, quality, […]


What’s For Dinner? Maduro Beef Picadillo 9

UPC’s Maduro Beef Picadillo This has been a LONG week for me! It has nothing to do with the holiday this weekend, and waiting for the weekend to come. It’s actually been so long partly because of social engagements, and partly because of the race last weekend. I’ve been recovering […]

What’s For Dinner? Clove Steak with Caramelized Mushrooms and Onions

UPC’s Clove Steak My wife asked me recently: “How do you avoid repeating yourself?” I hate to admit it, but the truth is that I really, honestly, don’t know if I do manage to avoid repeating myself! That said, I eat somewhere between 18 and 25 meals each week, most […]

What’s For Dinner? Steak & Sweet Potato Steak Fries 9

UPC’s Steak Fries Have you ever wondered what “Steak Fries” actually means? A quick internet search will bring up all sorts of different baked potato-fry recipes. You’ll see the skinny-cut that restaurants most often serve all the way through the thick-cut home-fry style steak fries. My question, every time I […]


What’s For Dinner? Beef Picadillo, Sweet Potato, Roasted Yellow Squash

UPC’s Beef Picadillo This week has been an “Off Week” in my workout schedule. I guess I shouldn’t quite call it a “schedule,” since I don’t actually schedule any of my workouts. More appropriately, I should say that my body has called for a low-week this week, and I’ve obliged. […]

Sometimes, a simple meal is the best meal you could ask for! My wife and I had a long day yesterday. She had several hard issues that she had to deal with at work, and my day was filled with meetings, so my work-pace was frantic in between them. It […]
