Ah, here it is…autumn cooking. Isn’t there something special about autumn? Apples, crock pot creations, baked sweet potatoes, spaghetti? The kitchen is in constant ‘good smell’ mode in autumn.
I love steak. I am not a meat and potatoes girl. I am a steak with yummy sauces girl. Although I will eat potatoes when Yes!Chef! makes them (and he loves potatoes), I can do without them for the most part. But pair up a great steak (and that includes ground up types of steak like hamburger) with a great sauce (not gravy) and some interesting veggies and I am a happy woman.
I don’t think I mentioned that Yes!Chef! got called to the East Coast to help out some of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Not with his cooking skill, but doing his day job as an insurance adjuster. He was gone three weeks and we were sad to miss him on Thanksgiving…especially his cooking.
Luckily, he was still at home for his birthday, so the kids and I decided to make him dinner. (It is so sad that it took at least 5 of us to do what he does with just one of him.) Oldest son’s girlfriend made a lovely German Chocolate cake, which is Yes!Chef!’s favorite.
