Steak and Potatoes

I'm getting boring in my old age. Here's the proof along with a dull post. A nice piece of pastured rib eye (Millgate Farm), alongside some goat cheese (Mackenzie Creamery) creme fraiche and roasted shallot fortified mashed potatoes, and an oyster mushroom (Killbuck Valley) pancetta and sweet onion mixture. There was a pan sauce too, and it was pretty good--shallot, white wine, butter, and a touch of the creme fraiche. It went well with everything.

And an heirloom lettuce salad, organic from the yard, complete with all its insect damage. Coated lightly with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper, it was lovely in its imperfection.

screw you for calling this boring. I haven't had a good piece of meat in weeks. The closest I've come recently is corn schnitzel (actually pretty good, though).

Who told you to marry a non-meat eating Scandinavian pastry chef? But I'm glad to hear the corn schnitzel tasted good. Sadly, it sounds gross. And it's not all that close.

Thanks MP. You seem to be doing quite well there in parent land.
