No Thanks

A T-bone saved my life last night

Posted on March 07, 2016 by Teri Billon

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!
