I wish I could have steak every day. If I could afford it I would, but we all know how that goes and I wind up with a refrigerator full of ground meat, chicken thighs, and pork chops. Which isn’t a bad thing at all, and I’ll just keep telling myself I’d be sick of steak if I had it more than once or twice a month. Sure I’d be. Anyway, when I do wind up buying steak I want to make sure I don’t royally [email protected]# it up because that would be really, really sad and traumatic for the cheap-a** in me. So, I try to keep it pretty simple. With good (enough) meat, the simple stuff usually works well.
This week has been chaotic with back-to-school nerves, papers flooding the house and lots of other stuff that I can’t even pinpoint but is making me crazy somehow. Did you ever feel so busy but when someone asks you what you need to do you realize you’re not even sure what it is? Or that it’s 50 different small things that are each so little and disjointed they each take up twice the time you’d think? Like for example, today I spent a good 2 hours attempting to locate “slippers” with a “hard rubber sole” that my daughter’s teacher wants “before the weekend,” along with gallon ziplock bags, bottled water, bananas, baby wipes and seriously only half of that was accomplished before my son and I needed to leave to go pick up my kindergartener who has half days for the next week. Sorry for the run on, but that’s how this week is going. Busy with busy work is not the way I like to spend time. It’s like getting a masters degree and then being asked to construct a shoe box at your internship, but that’s really just a whole ‘nother story.
How often do you eat steak? Do you have a favorite marinade recipe? Do you ever cook steak stove-top? Are you a fan of goat cheese?
