Meat On The Bone

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???

    But…. as far as I’m concerned if there is no money shot of you taking on that beef slathered bone it didn’t happen 😉
