The Good, the Bad and the Ugly


Okay, we’ll start with the bad news and get it overwith. My Boys in Blue lost to the Giants in a heartbreaking game on Sunday. Are we SURE Jessica Simpson wasn’t there?

Anyway, the good news is my family and I drowned our sorrows in some incredible steaks after our crushing defeat. The filets, strips and ribeyes were exactly what the doctor ordered. (I lost my mind and thought my order included T-bones – no matter, the ribeyes were awesome. I think I like them better than T-bones now.)

We turned on the grill with 7 minutes to go in the 4th quarter when there was still a ray of hope that Romo and the boys would pull it out. But by the time the steaks were done so were the Cowboys.

It’s always nice to end the evening on a positive note so we concentrated on how tender and flavorful our steaks were. My parents joined us and we all had our steaks cooked to order. No seasoning for Dad – KC strip, medium well. No pink, please. We butterflied a filet for Mom and added the Steak and Prime Rib Seasoning that comes with all the KC Steaks orders. Yum!

All in all, a wonderful evening. There was really no “ugly” unless you count the shouting at the TV. And we’ll just pretend that never happened . . .
