Holiday Steak



So, one holiday is down.

One to go.

Now’s the time to start planning for an amazing holiday meal that will surpass all others.

Maybe this one will feature a beef tenderloin so unique they’ll be begging you to repeat it year after year. Like the Pistachio-Crusted Tenderloin With Cabernet Sauce pictured above.

Steak Retreat



It’s Thanksgiving Eve, and family is all around.

For hubby and me, that means we get a tiny little break and we escape for a night out. Alone. Without the children.

They won’t even miss us.

Before the turkey and gravy and stuffing and ham and casseroles and cranberry sauce, we go out for a night of steak and merriment.

A gorgeous strip steak is on the menu for him – a ribeye for me.

All is well and we have much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve to you, too!

Another Steak Convert



With Thanksgiving inching ever near, I always wonder about the poor souls who hate turkey. And I have found yet another personal narrative from a Thanksgiving steak eater that warms my soul.

In “Skip the Turkey, I’m Having Steak for Thanksgiving,” Russ shares his meals of Thanksgiving past – and lets us know that steak is on the menu this year.

I think this phenomenon is larger than we might have thought. And there may yet be secret turkey haters at even your family table.

They just haven’t summoned the courage to ruin the mystique of “Turkey Day.”

Read here to be regaled by Russ’s take on this traditional holiday meal – and the new traditions he’s started.

And what about you? Are YOU a steak convert?
