So what happens when Sweets decides what we’re makin’ for dinner? Magic. That’s what happens. Culinary, you’d think you’re at a fancy restaurant, magic.
You see I’m all into comfort food with a healthy twist or two… but for the most part my inventions are pretty simple and usually incorporate beans… if not in the actual dish… then it MUST pair well with beans as a side dish.
But when Sweets decides on dinner… the description generally sounds like something you might read on a menu in some fancy restaurant. And not just some cheapy lamented menu… we’re talking about those places whose menu actually has a cover and a binding and sometimes it’s even leather.
Recently I was telling a friend what we had for dinner the night before and I actually got winded naming the dish… and mind you… I was telling her through g-chat. I wasn’t even talking, I was typing. And I got winded.
Want to know what it was? Of course you do, that’s why you’re reading this blog.
Grilled New York Steak with a homemade Chimichurri sauce served with a Heirloom Tomato, Avocado and Arugula Salad with a Balsamic Reduction.
I know, that’s a lot of syllables for just one dinner… so let me rephrase it… we had Heaven for dinner.
And as fancy shmancy as this all sounds I have a little secret.
Come here, I’ll tell you, but shhhh.
Don’t tell anyone (cause I kind of enjoy looking so fancy) but…
It was super easy.
You too can eat like you’re at a fancy restaurant with a leather bound menu in the comforts of you’re very own home. And probably spend a bajillion times less money doing it too.
So let’s not waste anymore time and get to cooking.. and grilling.
