    Default Dinner tonight

    For two:

    Two one-pound rib-eye steaks, grilled medium rare, baked potatoes,
    wedge salads and my very favorite BRUSSELS SPROUTS. Dessert was a Jim
    Beam neat for me and orange sherbet for him. Fabulous!

    Flame on!

    Nice.

    Fairly analogous to what we had: lamb rib chops broiled rare;
    mashed potatos (with a fraction of yam); and sauteed bok-choy
    flowerettes. (This is the flower-ends of bok choy which had bolted,
    and so looks more like rapini than it does like cabbage.)

    Meat, spuds, and crucifers in other words. (Brussel sprouts have
    gone out of season here, they're my first choice of crucifer,
    but these bok choy thingies were very good, and a new one for me.)

    Wow I've never seen or heard of those bok choy flowerettes. Sounds
    interesting!

    Bok Choy is one of my favorite veggies, wonderful cooked or raw; in
    soups, salads, and of course stir frys... has great texture. The
    reason I prepared that almost-chow mein is because last trip to
    Walmart I found beautiful large heads of bok choy only 79/lb. Mine
    was really more a Subgum Chow Mein. Anyway it was delicious, and I
    filled a 4 qt pot so I have lots of LOs for today... I love cold
    congealed ch--ks. What... chicks! LOL

    Toppings on baked potatoes? The usual suspects; sour cream and
    butter?
    Steaks grilled over wood, charcoal or gas? Probably gas. It's not a
    bad option, but charcoal/wood imparts a better flavour IMO.
    When I grill a lean cut such as rib eye, I like to top the steak at
    serving with some kind of butter. i.e. garlic, white wine and/or
    lemon juice, green stuff(aka parsley, green onions minced fine) etc.
    mixed in with softened butter.

    You made a gallon of that **** you posted here the other day? I
    suppose you threw in all those crispy chow mein noodles right before
    you stored the leftovers, too.

    We had rib-eyes last night too along with twice baked spuds and a
    salad. I made gravy with baby portabellos and it was a great dinner.
    We can't afford steak very often so it was a real treat.

    They were. Similar to, but not the same as, rapini or
    brocollini. Very good sauteed in OO with some salt and lemon.

    How'd you do the brussels sprouts? I have a big bag from Costco in my
    fridge. You menu sounds wonderful.

    Ahh, that makes sense. Nobody makes wedge salad at home. Not since
    the 70's, at least.

    I thought it was strange that she cooked. I should have kept thinking
    longer.

    As Dan pointed out - It sounds like a restaurant menu meal.

    I don't have a problem with that -- cheaper than a restaurant if it's
    done at home. <shrug>

    Yeah, what's wrong with cooking restaurant-like meals at home?

    With the frozen.... I'm working on that.

    With fresh.... trim, halve or quarter the biggies, Stir fry, in a bit
    of peanut oil. Then a shake of salt, and as many sprinklings of sugar
    for eventual taste. As you go along, you will see fluid, being induced
    by the sugar, causing sprouts to tenderize, where upon and eventually
    as moisture reduces, the sprouts should begin to caramelize.

    Occasional covering may be needed. You may also find that the sprouts
    may absorb the oil, like there was no tomorrow... so...extra splashes
    as well.

    Note: A cook is just a script reader, a chef improvises

    I do. I've been thinking that it's about time. I haven't done it in a
    couple of years.

    Take an egg and hard boil it. After it's cooled some, shell it and chop
    coarsely. Finely mince a couple of tablespoons of onion. Put the egg
    and onion in a small bowl and glop in mayo and catsup, 3 to 1. Mix well
    and leave on the table for an hour to meld the flavors. Cut some wedges
    of iceberg lettuce. Let each person apply their own dressing to taste.

    Would I have the option of brining my own dressing? And blue cheese?
    And Bacon? And tomato bits? because that's what I thought a wedge
    salad is/was.
