Grilled sirloin, baked potatoes, mushrooms (in a shiraz reduction) and baked red onions.

I love it when I get stuck with the cooking...

Chicken Pot Pie Soup. An Old Jaques family recipe that consists of bringing a large stock pot of lightly salted water to a full, rolling boil and violently hurling in four to five still frozen chicken pot pies while alternately cackling and muttering obscenities.

I think of it as soul food.

I like that the pot pies are violently hurled. I don't think this meal would be as good if they were just put in.

Fish and chips. Homemade Guinness batter with cod and some walleye that really should've been taken out of the freezer ages ago.

(And the absolute first time I've managed to get a deep-fry batter to work. And there was much rejoicing...)

BBQ Beef Baked Potato, loaded with enough butter, cheese, and sour cream to make any dairy farmer happy. Then I split it with my bride in a vain effort to spread the caloric guilt.

To make you understand just how awesome my dinner was tonight, I have to tell the story of the whole experience and show you a picture. I started with a really good cut of strip steak, poured Arcadia Ales' Scottish Ale on it, and rubbed it with fresh cracked sea salt and pepper and just a bit of McCormick's steak seasoning. I then let it fall to room temperature, and put on my new charcoal grill (a graduation gift from my girlfriend's dad). I smoked a bowl of Prince Albert in a Yello-Bole while I prepared and cooked the steak to a wonderful medium-rare (closer to rare), and then as I let the juices work in the finished product, I steamed some potatoes, carrots, and broccoli. When the vegetables were done, I melted real butter over them and cracked some sea salt and pepper. I then drank Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale with the meal. After I'd finished, I smoked a bowl of With Pipe and Book (an English) while I polished off the rest of the ale.

Image

I must have just been lucky with this steak because I'm no expert on beef, and I've only had one steak in my life that even compared to this one. Seriously, this was one of the top five mealsof my life.

Praise to our God, whose unknowable creative power made food taste this great!

Tonight, I made beer batter from scratch and fried some tilapia, fried some homemade fries, steamed some vegetables, and washed it down with Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter.

Man Colton, that steak meal sounds just about perfect. Made me very hungry.

For dinner tonight I had pork steaks on the grill, steamed veggies, corn bread, and pineapple.

Looks like a great meal - but a totally crappy steak knife. I know what to get you for a wedding present.

Thanks for the picture and story. I had planned on having steak tomorrow night and this gets me ready all the more.

Sweet, I'll put that on my list of things not to buy before I tie the knot. :D
