Dinner on the Grill tonight!
So tonight I will be firing up the grill. This is not what was on the menu planned two days ago. Remember, the menu is a guideline for me - things happen and changes sometimes need to be made. In this case, Big Guy went to the grocery store yesterday (dangerous sometimes!). He came home with 4 BEAUTIFUL steaks. So lovely, they did not need to find a home in our freezer. So we did a little menu shuffle in the kitchen - fun little dance! Tonight, we will be having Ribeyes, roasted Red Potatoes toasted with Kosher Salt and Olive Oil, and salads. A Red Blooded American Man kind of meal!
Ribeyes are not my favorite steaks. Big Guy has me spoiled, I'll admit it. My favorite steak is a tenderloin. Period. Not too marbled with fat but full of flavor. We typically will buy a whole tenderloin when they are on Special at the grocery store and cut them into steaks at home, freezing individually. Price per steak, this is the most economical for us for this cut of meat.
Don't know how to cut your own steaks? Check out Karen's advice at the Art of Doing Stuff.
So what's on your menu for tonight?
