Meaty 12-12-12!

By

Okay, it’s 12-12-12 and you know how we celebrate everything in my house, right?

Steak!

But, let’s come up with some creative ways to do this every-100-years thing right! Invite some people over, then try these festive ideas:

1. Serve 12 different cuts of steak – come on, you can do it!

2. Combine 12 cool spices and create an awesome rub for your roast.

3. Easy. Just invite 12 friends to eat steak. Boom.

4. Everyone gets a 12-ounce ribeye.

5. Serve whatever steak you want, but then go around the table and collectively come up with 12 things you’re thankful for.

6. Ask a 12-year-old to recite the “12 Days of Christmas” while you eat your steak.

And if you’re celebrating Hanukkah on this spectacular day, you’ve totally got this celebration thing under control.

Okay, now you come up with the next 6 to make 12 cool things to do on this awesome day. I need a 12-minute breather.

It’s amazing how something that had nothing to do with steak turns into a steak-related holiday in my mind.

Really, aren’t all special days steak-related in some way?

Happy 12-12-12, everyone!

Beefy 12 Month Plan

By

I’m thinking this might be for me. It might take all the guesswork out of meal planning and ensure that I have something tasty on hand at all times.

It’s a 12 Month Plan with pretty awesome choices like Beef Wellington, T-bones, Prime Rib Roast, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon…

But…I am going to send them to myself. It’s a gift to myself that will keep on giving.

Seems like a smart way to make sure I’m ready to go with some amazing menu items. I’m all about making life easier for myself this year and this seems like a great option.

Pre-planning. What a concept! I wish I had fully embraced it before. I might have saved myself a whole lot of heartache – and scrambling. Check it out here if you want to try it, too.

Here’s to a less-harried 2012!!!

Holiday Beef Tenderloin

By

Oh, how I love the holidays!

But if you’re like me, you stress about family and friends coming to your house and making a big meal (or mess – whatever the case may be).

I think two turkey holidays in a row may be a bit much. That’s why this time around a beef tenderloin roast is in order.

It’s elegant. It’s tender. And it makes the whole house smell divine.

THAT says “holiday meal” to me.

Here’s a fantastic recipe with a full menu suggestion, including sides and dessert. You can’t go wrong with this meal.

And here is where I get my beef tenderloin roasts so I don’t have to worry that the beef might not be up to par. I KNOW it is.

There are all sorts of roasts to choose from – from Chateaubriand to prerubbed beauties. Choose what you like! It’ll all be good.

And let me know how your holiday meal turns out – minus the scene Aunt Edna made in the living room.

Holiday Beef Roast

By

When I see this photo and think of this meal we had in celebration of the 4th of July, I can’t help but want to sing that song, “You are so beautiful . . . to me!”

Is it not?

Fork tender beef roast with mashed potatoes, salad, dinner rolls and gorgeous cupcakes for dessert.

Those were for the kids. The kids, I tell ya.

But let’s go back to that roast. I’m wondering if there is any left in the fridge. Thinking about a great open-faced sandwich on one of those dinner rolls. . .

Hope you had a great holiday too!

Steak Chili: You Need This

By

You know how your mom always told you to clean your plate?

I don’t think it’s gonna be a problem with this one.

This steak chili has a distinct stick-to-your-ribs quality that is extra appealing at this time of year. I know I’m always trying to find ways to stay warm.

The smoked paprika and chili powder give it the kick we all want, plus a little something more.

Make a huge batch of this to share and to freeze for later. I always like it when I have yumminess on hand on those days when I just don’t have enough time to make something spectacular. And with two busy kids, well, let’s just say that happens a lot.

Click here for this hearty steak chili recipe – it’s mom approved!
