Bloody Thursday

Last night we caught up on some episodes of The Walking Dead.  It seemed appropriate to indulge in a rare hunk of meat.

(and good steaks were on sale for the first time in weeks -- which coincides with the length of time Kevin's been begging for steak)

Black 'nd Red Steak Dinner

Blackened rib steaks cooked rare
with chimichurri sauce and/or gorgonzola.

Hassleback Yukon golds.

Green salad with balsamic & oil.

Quartered radishes.

Homebrewed Mexican lager (Kev)
Red wine (me).

Split plain yogurt cake with (sad, barely berrylike) sugared strawberry slices and Cool Whip.

Procurement/prep notes:
- Rib steaks dredged with Sara Moulton's homemade Creole Seasoning.  Next time I'll sub out a third of the hot paprika for sweet - really got the nose running!
- 2 1/2 minutes each side on a screaming-hot cast-iron skillet was perfect for the steak.
- More on chimichurri:  Kind of a vinegary pesto with parsley/cilantro, not basil.  We first had it (over and over again, it was so good!) in Puerto Rico.  Popular in Argentina as well, but some differences there.   Mine is similar to this one, but I use equal parts parsley and cilantro, no oregano, and no jalapeno.  It rocks.
- On strawberries in March:  when will I learn that this is not California.
