Steak Stories: Savoring Summer

Seriously, how did it get to be . . . August????

What happened to all the projects and things I was going to check off my list this summer?

Organize home office?


Clean out guest bedroom closet that is filled with clothes that haven’t seen the light of day THIS DECADE?

Uh, no.

I guess I’m just living in the moment. Sure, that’s what we’ll call it. And I’m enjoying these summer days with my kids — when they aren’t drilling holes in the side of my skull with incessant Star Wars noises and samurai sword sounds.

But one thing we have done this summer is get outside and enjoy really good food. We haven’t let the sunny days go to waste. And I’m feeling a sense of urgency to milk all I can out of what’s left.


I know I’ll blink and it’ll be November!

So here’s to the home stretch of summer. May your days be filled with the rich smells of a grilling steak and those soft, sizzling sounds that accompany it.

The bags of old clothes and unrecycled catalogs can wait. We’ve got some cooking to do!!!
