I always let the steaks come to room temperature (or at least close) first. It makes it so much easier to get an accurate cooking time/temperature. Served with baked tates, sauteed broccoli and sugar snaps. And baguette, of course. Lots to do today. Finish holiday shopping, cleanups, and start making some limoncello (inspired by marth).
Speaking of homemade hooch, I made some peach liqueur that was finally done on saturday. I was told that it turned out really well. I gave it as a gift at wife's work party. Which, by the way, was full of delicious Indian food. Aneetha (amy's boss) is Sri Lankan, and her mother prepared all of the food for the night. It was amazing! Like a wonderful indian buffet inside of someones home. Chicken, salmon, lamb, cauliflower, samosas...all there, all tasty. be jealous, fools. peaces.
TJ Maxx. We pretty much did the bulk of our holiday shopping here. Lots of sweet gifts, nice gifts, for cheaper than you could get at target or wal mart. check it out. you sometimes have to do some searching but it's worth it.
