thursday night steaks

For some reason, I usually want to cook a big meal on Thursday nights. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s super close to the weekend. Last Thursday, I decided to pick up a couple of dry aged steaks from our neighborhood HEB. When I got home, I soaked them in a marinade made with a few cups of a nice Cabernet Sauvignon, a few dashes or Worchester sauce, a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, salt, fresh cracked black pepper and a tiny bit of garlic salt. This is my own version of my Dad’s steak recipe. His steaks are my favorite! Then I grilled them on my favorite grill pan until they were medium rare. I added the rest of the red wine marinade into a small sauce pan and boiled it down to a thicker sauce then spooned it across the steak.

I decided to boil some corn on the cob and top with salt, pepper and a tiny bit of olive oil. We don’t have corn on the cob very much, but I was feeling nostalgic and the corn on the cob reminded me of childhood weekends in the hill country.

Along with the steak and corn, I decided to make a little medley of vegetables. I added a little bit of olive oil to a sauté pan and then added some snap peas, kale and shaved brussels sprouts. I sprinkled in some of my favorite garlic vinaigrette for a tangy flavor, added some crushed black pepper and topped with a few shavings of some salty pecorino cheese. Yummy!

Fabric

My love for fabric is endless. Whether it’s clothing, curtains, pillow cases or table linens, I love it. They are such a fun thing to collect and it’s always exciting to find new ones. I change pillow cases constantly and it always brightens my day. My obsession right now is with table linens. I love mix and matching them together for a little dinner party or get together. I have many that I’ve collected over the years with floral patterns, metallic hues and monograms. My favorite place to order monogram linens from is Mark and Graham. Their products are consistently beautiful, fun and high quality.
