Steakin’ Out the Competition

Standard

Okay, so there is no competition but for anyone out there looking for the ultimate in indulgence when it comes to steaks–look no further!

 

Mike went all out with this meal and you can bet we were rubbing our food babies satisfaction at the end of dinner.

 

The best part hands down was the bacon hollandaise smothered all over those perfectly cooked pieces of grade A Alberta beef!

 

Another awesome addition was the eggplant salad courtesy made by Theo’s Greek Kouzina booth from the downtown farmer’s market.

 

Stay classy,

Commercial Break Sandwich

Standard

I’ve been running Mike through a ton of photos lately–mainly because I’ve been slacking on the posting. His comment for this dish “It was just dinner, not something fancy you have to blog about.”

 

Well sir, I enjoy all the meals my man cooks and want to share his culinary prowess with the world! Plus, I know it makes some people say “yo baby! Why don’t you cook me all these fancy meals? hmmmm?” haha sorry significant others of the world. I’ve won the foodie lottery with Mike.

 

So from what I remember of this meal: We had homemade whole wheat bread with mozzarella and some herbs melted on top. Mike cooked up some pork with grainy dijon mustard and some garden fresh onions. The gravy is the pork juices cooked up with some flour. To top it off there are some frites added for crunch. There you have it! Hot meat sandwich. This dish was quick and easy to put together in half an hour tops.

 

Stay classy,

Got My Meat and Taters!

DSC_1089 DSC_1101┬áThank you Irvings Farm for making the Old English ‘Cumberland’ Sausage. With this great tasting sausage which contains NUTMEG! Mike put together a classic English dish known as Bangers and Mash. Pretty much you grab some potatoes, cook em’, mash em’ and thrown some butter and cream in there. Then cook up some all around awesome sausage bought from your local butcher. Rifle through your fridge for some veggies and once everything is cooked toss it on a plate and call it a day. Mike also added grainy dijon mustard and some parsley to the plate.

This is a great way to get rid of some leftover potatoes or vegetables.

Stay classy,
