I'm pleased to announce that yesterday was my 6th wedding anniversary. It rather sneaked up on me, as I'm sure most busy, working parents of young children can appreciate. I hadn't made any special plans, I was just hoping to get the kids to bed by 7:30 so that I could have a moment to breathe. In a happy coincidence, I brought home a gorgeous, extra large 500 gr US Grain Finished T-Bone Steak on Friday night (a big thanks goes out to the Office Whiz Kid, Redmond!)
It had been in the fridge to thaw, so I pulled it out, put it on a plate to and let it come to room temperature on the kitchen counter while we herded the cats--I mean the kids-- through pyjamas, teeth brushing, bed time stories and good night kisses.
The 6th wedding anniversary is considered the "Iron Anniversary," and look at me, I had a "Lovers Steak" to fry up in an orange Le Creuset Heavy Iron griddle pan that we received as a wedding gift, and the kids did seem to be sound asleep in their beds. Sometimes the stars smile on me.
The Meat Me At Home crew had just finished a 3 day photo shoot, and I vaguely remembered Chef Rebekah setting up a beautiful image of the T-Bone steak, and that it might just be within my abilities to try to recreate it. I endeavoured to give it a go.
Much to the surprise and delight of my darling husband, in the space of about 15 minutes, I made a dramatic entrance from the kitchen carrying a tray filled lovingly with a T-bone steak cooked to perfection--his side medium well, my side bloody as hell!
