Cooking is an activity that is great fun. Lots of time pouring over recipes and deciding what to make and what is in the pantry . Usually the desire to cook come post shopping hence the pantry routine and all the goggling. Just hate to have to go out again. Since last week was a run to San Antonio and Central market (SA's answer to Whole Foods) had sent a flier that cowboy steaks were $7.99lb the shopping preceded the cooking. just look at this yummy steak Chris and I have a routine with steaks that involves digital thermometers and resting once temp is reached. This was perfect.
YES The steak is the size of a small roast. We managed 4 meals from this. The night before our neighbor Gary gave us a bottle of Sebastian cab sav. from the Alexander valley, a favorite wine region. What a perfect meal. To top it off was a homemade rhubarb and blackberry pie from pastry made earlier in the week.
It was a rustic pie but the juice just ran everywhere. Taste unmarred.
