It's what's for dinner

Tonight's Menu
  • grilled NY strip steaks w/sauteed onions and mushrooms
  • baked potatoes w/fixin's
  • steamed broccoli
Yes, I am STILL GRILLING. And it's NOVEMBER! But I'm grilling in the dark, which makes it not seem so wrong somehow. It's like camping! But I get to sleep in a comfy bed with no bugs! And a real toilet!

So yeah, I bought some nice thick NY strip steaks this week. Now that the kids like meat (or the boy does, at least) I've been buying the family packs for cheap. I brought these to room temperature, rubbed them with crushed garlic cloves, sprinkled with kosher salt & cracked pepper, then cooked them on an insanely hot gas grill for 4 minutes per side. After resting they were medium rare, tender and perfect.

The mushrooms and onions were sauteed in EVOO and seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. Baked potatoes were loaded with all the bad dairy products and whatnot. Broccoli was steamed in the microwave.

OH! And also I made an apple crumb pie for dessert! From scratch! Well, except for the crust. Those Pillsbury refrigerated crusts are just too damn easy.

So yeah, tonight's dinner was WAY yummy. Especially with a little pinot.
