Salt block Tuna

We made salt block grilled tuna today. 
First we had to season it, which meant slowly heating to 500 degrees. 

Then the tuna went on, just a quick seer on the outside. Cooked very rare. 
Thanks Sarit & Gilad.

Audrey back home from CCL Surgery

Audrey is now back home, on light activity.  She had a complete tear of her Cranial Cruciate Ligament.  This is equivalent to a human ACL. She will be home sleeping and not doing much else for the next two weeks.  After that we start Doggie Physical Therapy.
