Did you spot it? Yes, there was some beef in that menu that I would have run straight for. You know, had I been invited and all.

Come to think of it, why wasn’t I invited?

Oh, well, I was busy today anyway. Congrats, Duke and Duchess!

Eye Candy – Steak Style

By

Gorgeous, right?

I like pretty, shiny, colorful things.

Mix them with a good steak and I’m in my happy place.

Aren’t these acrylic steak knives beautiful? They’re from France. Somehow, that makes them even more beautiful. I don’t know why.

They’re Claude Dozorme steak knives from the Laguiole region of France.

Fancy schmancy.

Click here if you must have these for yourself. And bon appetit!

“Who goes there?”

The Emperor Palpatine and Commander Thire Guarding Two Kansas City Strip Steaks

If you have boys under the age of 10, this might be a familiar sight in your home.

In my house, everything revolves around playtime, imaginations and some sort of pretend shooting of weapons. So this photo just about sums it all up.

Nothing is sacred.

I’m trying to decide if these guys (that’s Emperor Palpatine and Commander Thire) are just decoration or are protecting these Kansas City strips from intruders.

We wouldn’t want them to get into the wrong hands.

May the force be with you, gentlemen.
