Steak Heaven


That’s where we were on Sunday as we celebrated Mother’s Day with ribeyes and strips. 


Some were thick cut, some were thin and some were in between. 

Some had spicy marinades and some just had salt and pepper.

We aim to please and, believe me, everyone was pleased.

 We put the steaks on the grill while everyone settled in and the sun was still shining . . .


Do you see those strips? They’re to die for. They’re marinaded in spicy Tabasco Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and a new mixture of seasonings my mother-in-law gave us.

Even I don’t know what’s in it. But that’s half the fun.

Now, check out this mouth-watering ribeye . . .  


Couldn’t you just eat it up?

Well, I did. Sorry.

I like ’em thinly cut and this one was absolutely perfect.

Just like Mother’s Day.

I marinaded mine in regular Worcestershire sauce, the mystery seasoning mix and salt and pepper. I can’t take it quite as spicy as my husband can.

Then, when it was on my plate I used the ever-present Teriyaki sauce to bring out every last juicy drop of goodness.

I think there was a point during the meal where no one spoke to me.

I was having some kind of Zen moment. You know, just me and the steak. As one.

Hope your day was just as wonderful!
