Beeman Kodiak X2 Air Rifle

I’ve had my eye on a .22 caliber air rifle for quite some time now. I’ve seen this type a few years ago in a Cheaper Than Dirt catalog and they were running about $150-$200 which I just couldn’t justify spending on an air rifle when I could very well just pick up an actual .22 rifle for the same price. While I was at Wal-Mart the other day, I seen one of these beauties marked for $99.99 and had to grab it. This kit comes with a break action barrel, reciever/stock, 2 interchangeable barrels (one .117 caliber and one .22 caliber) and a scope.

Breaded Pork Chops

I haven’t had a good breaded pork chop for quite some time. When I seen a good special on pork chops at the store I had to grab some to cook up for a stick to your ribs dinner. Here’s an easy recipe you can use to whip up some great breaded pork chops. You can use Italian breadcrumbs and serve with a side of pesto linguini for a filler upper that’s easy to cook and easy on the wallet.

Fry up until it's a nice golden brown, no need to overcook them since their going in the oven to finish.

Bought a Boss DS-1

I just picked up one of the most famous distortion boxes ever made, the classic orange Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal, on eBay for $25 with an adaptor and original box/info. I’ve been looking on picking up a new distortion pedal for the last few month and this one was a good deal for a great, easy to modify pedal with tons of kits out there. I’ve played around with this pedal at guitar center and really do like it as it is. it has a good amount of range from a nice breaky grit to a metal lead sound, and playing with the tone knob and your pickups can really give you a ton of tones.

Cucumber Dill Dip

Since the store had a “2 for a buck” special on cucumbers, I bought a few bucks worth and made up this dip. This goes great with sliced cucumbers, carrots and Rosemary Triscuts. It’s Depending on how you like it, you can just finely dice the cucumbers for a thicker dip or, I used a food processor and added the cucumber and ranch and it made it more consistent in texture. It will stay good for about 3 days in the fridge.
