Steaky Cyber Monday


So, I took advantage of some Black Friday sales and, like I told you, I stocked up on steak last Friday for the approaching holidays.

Well, now today is something they call “Cyber Monday.” Big online sales abound today and I wouldn’t care if they called it “Rodeo Clown Thursday,” if I can save on stuff I was already going to buy, sign me up!

Turns out, I forgot to order a couple of things last Friday so I’m going back out to to get a few more things. I’m really glad it’s Cyber Monday because they’ve got $6.99 shipping and a few other one-day specials.

My family, my stomach and my wallet thanks whoever came up with Cyber Monday.

Happy shopping to you all!

Stockin’ Up on Steak


. . . and other things, too!


I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I sure did.

We ate ourselves silly on all the traditional Thanksgiving players:  turkey (smoked this year in the trusty SmokinTex), mashed taters, green bean casserole, two kinds of cranberry sauce — the real kind and the kind that comes out shaped like the can, pumpkin pie and so many other amazing things.

Now, it’s Black Friday and it’s time to stock up for the next holiday. It’s only just about 4 weeks away!

Where has my life gone? My youth and my sanity are slipping away. But, dangit, I’m going to eat well while it’s happening.

We’ll have lots of company again for the holidays so I’m taking advantage of the sale they’re having now at the Kansas City Steak Company. When you spend $49.95 or more you get 8 free steakburgers sent to you. I need those. My people are hungry.


I’ve got to keep a whole bunch of things on hand because when our family is here it feels like you just finished cleaning up one meal and it’s time to start the next. Ayyyy!

I’m ordering some filets, a roast and some hot dogs. With the steakburgers I’ll get, that should get us through. But ya never know.

After that, they’ll have to call the pizza joint down the street. I’ll be tired . . . but I can’t wait!

The holiday season has officially begun and my freezer is about to be well-stocked!

Sadly, I did not fare well. Let’s just say I would have to take this class over in summer school. I was too busy passing “check yes or no” notes to my husband and I missed a few questions.

No matter, I can still enjoy a great steak with the best of them!
