    She'd take that as a compliment.

    Her most inventive concoctions are meat marinates, and could/would include just about any dribs and drabs she could find. Once saw her mix what was left in a couple different bottles of salad dressings, maybe a remaining tablespoon of Nestle syrup, some lime juice, and the last few sprinkles of spices left in three or four spice tins. She then added some inexpensive red wine, mixed it all in a blender at low speed, then marinated a pork loin in it for 24 hours before cooking it all in a crock pot. Incredibly tender with a taste reminiscent of Caribbean jerk with a hint of Thai with no gastric distress later.

    That is the kind of innovation which prompts for the creation of new vocabulary words like “chifty”.

    I used to think that beef jerky was just something to throw to dogs, and at one time that may have been true, when the mass-produced stuff tended to be cheap and awful. Like salty greasy cardboard.

    But nowadays there are lots of good brands, and the stuff is so versatile and long lasting. Store it in the freezer and it's good forever.

    Great Canadian Meat Company

    Also, ptarmigan vindaloo. Surprisingly terrific!
