Couple Appreciation Month: Dinner for Two?

Two Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

April is Couple Appreciation Month. I take this to mean we should all appreciate couples and if you’re one half of a couple, appreciate your other half.

The way we do that in my house? Food! Good food.

Namely steaks.

Now appreciating your partner might look like filet mignons to you, Porterhouse steaks to your neighbor or ribeyes to your mother-in-law.

However you see it, steaks are the way to go.

Dinner for two with exceptionally grilled steaks and maybe some candles flickering is basically the international language of appreciation and love.

Am I right?

Don’t let this month pass without some couple appreciation in your life. You – and your other half – will be thankful!

What is the Best Steak?

Dinner for Two Club

That question is like saying, “Who is your favorite child?”

How can you possibly answer?

There’s no question the QUALITY of a steak is a good measure. And grade – like USDA Prime steaks or even Wagyu Kobe beef – makes a difference.

But what is the best cut? Depends on what you’re after.

Want something tender and juicy? Filet mignons. Hands down.

Hearty and meaty? Ribeye, T-bone steaks and Porterhouse steaks.

Flavorful? Kansas City strip steaks. Definitely.

So… what is the best steak TO YOU?

That answer will probably be different for everyone. And that’s one thing I love about steak!

Time To Try a Seafood Bake

Seafood Bake

I simply adore a full meal cooked all at once!

The many flavors blend together for such a delicious final product.

A Seafood Bake mixes Maine lobster tails, shrimp, mussels, scallops, corn on the cob and baby potatoes with a rich, herbed lemon butter sauce.

Sound delicious? It is!

At my house, we add steak on the barbie for the ultimate surf and turf.

Sheer heaven.

I prefer ribeye steaks but my husband is partial to Kansas City strip steaks. But any steak cut makes sense with a Seafood Bake. It all works!

Itching to try it? All you need to do is bake for just under an hour. That’s it! Add a little Chardonnay and you’re all set.

It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Less time working and more time enjoying!
