It’s birthday week!
A bit of tradition has been created for my birthday over the last few years and that would be a large, perfectly aged, prime rib steak on the bone. My husband takes charge of all the preparations, picks up the steak from the butcher, seasons the steak, barbecues it until it’s a perfectly cooked “rare” steak. Yumm….
Then, in my opinion, comes the best part.
My guilty pleasure is the bone. I eat a little bit of the steak and then it’s time to picking up the bone with my bare hands and nibble at the gorgeous, succulent, juicy meat remaining! Sure it’s a bit messy but who cares! That’s what napkins are for!
What about accompaniments you might ask? My absolute favourite is a crisp salad dressed with blue cheese dressing. What the heck is it about beef and blue cheese? I think it’s a match made you know where!
And it wouldn’t be a special dinner without an excellent bottle of red wine from Joe’s little stash.
Bring on the presents???
