Last week Chris had a mini-reunion night out with some high school friends, so I decided to be my carnivorous self and fix a nice ribeye for dinner. I got a great bone-in ribeye for $7.99 at Price Chopper - it had gorgeous marbling and was just the right size to go with my baked russet potato and steamed rock lobster tails ($9.99 for two!). Yes, I was being gluttonous, but that's okay...now and then. I seasoned the ribeye with my usual: kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, a light sprinkling of garlic powder, and a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce. While I let the steak marinate for a bit, I wrapped the potato in foil and put it in the toaster oven on 450 for an hour. Then I "grilled" my steak stove-top in our ridged Calphalon pan over high heat so I would get a nice char but it would still be medium-rare. Meanwhile, I steamed the lobster tails and melted some butter. It was a feast and I washed it down with a Trader Joe's (reserver!) Cabernet Sauvignon, enjoying every bite...including those last few nibbles off the bone. That will teach Chris to leave me home alone...(anytime!!!).
Suddenly my sesame noodles don't sound so good...
Nothing wrong with treating yourself to a great meal. Everyone deserves it from time to time! This is very fancy. Love the $2 Chuck top off. Yum.
