Mr. Sir Loin

First Bacon, and now Steak. I am a whole new woman this week. Seriously, what is happening in my kitchen? Good things I tell you…no…GREAT things!
I haven’t had a steak in gawd knows when and it was about damn time! 
Plus, a couple of years back they closed down my favorite steak place…not a happy camper when you erase one of my childhood memories of a thick, juicy, mouth-watering steak with the family.
No, you didn’t.
Anyway, today I have a man’s meal for you…no, a woman’s meal…hey, it’s both, cah-peesh?
Steak…
gawd…I feel so cave-woman-ish right now.

Now, some roasted veggies…
that’s more like it.

  1. Mmmm….. Steaaaak :). Beef is one of those things I used to avoid when trying to lose weight, but it’s SO yummy and SO filling. Now I’ll routinely grill a GREAT BIG ONE, and eat it all week… salads, wraps, you name it.

    Protein, baby! Bring it on!
