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.

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!
Now we're posting still life photos of our dinners?

I LIKE IT!!!

And looks like a good bit of eatin'...

Last night's showcase item: Stuffed Grilled Habanero Pork Chops. I shot totally from the hip on this one. Stuffing was made up of some pickled habaneros, red onion, tomatoes and peach. Coated with olive oil, they were sprinkled with ground habanero then glazed with a sauce made up of Jack Daniels, KC Masterpiece and a couple good dollops of home-made habanero jelly. There were tears and sweat aplenty.

For Dinner last night I started with a cold cut sandwich, then went to cold pizza (it wasn't DiGiorno). & ended wth some cold seedless grapes.

Whataburger #5, no onion, with a giant sweet tea. Sure went down easy... Worth a drive to Texas if you've never enjoyed one.

Helman's mayonnaise, Coleman's English mustard, tomato, Muenster cheese, and smokehouse ham on German rye bread, with a pimento-stuffed olive topped toothpick through each half. I'm also eating the rest of the tomato and a green salad with Italian dressing and washing it down with a Duvel Belgian golden ale. Mmm, mmm, good.
