Strip Steak and Mushrooms, Artichokes, and a nice bottle of Washington red.

Steve, that photo looks soooo yummy! Tonight I'm just having some yogurt and fresh fruit, had a huge salad for lunch and a nice breakfast, so I've had most of my calories for the day, just need a little something before going to bed.

Steve, you bought wine???

I grilled a couple of ribeyes and a NY strip for dinner tonight. We also had salad and corn on the cob so the steak wouldn't feel lonely.

Heck, no!

We hosted a "wine and a movie" party the week before last, and a lot of the guests brought wine as a host gift. When the dust cleared we found ourselves with almost 2 full cases of unopened wine. Some of them were very nice bottles.

I decided to cut up my portobella, mix it with some criminis and button mushrooms and make Mushrooms Gratin. I had some Swiss cheese and some great aged white cheddar (I won't say the name of it in case the Chief reads this - he gets very envious ).

I had a small Caesar salad with it, made with our own romaine - it tasted so good!

Wow, that picture is gorgeous as usual Steve.

We had big fabulous artichokes too. I nearly came unglued when I found them at the Dollar Store and cooked four of them tonight as we like them cold too. At a dollar each, I bought some for the neighbors too. We like them with a dipping sauce of mayo, lemon juice and garlic powder.

I also grilled two thick loin pork chops the ATK way, and they were succulent and wonderful if I do say so myself. That method is just perfect.
Here's the link for the chops if anyone missed it a few months ago.
Perfect grilled pork chops.

I was surprised to find them here for $1.50 each, looking as big and fresh as they did.

We've tried a few dipping sauces, but my favorite is equal parts sour cream and mayo with a dose of horseradish. My wife and I used to make the horseradish sauce for steaks, but it's positively delicious on artichokes, too. Yum!

I had a long day and a class tonight, so I didn't feel like cooking. I ordered pizza from our local New York-style pizza parlor. Delish!

Great looking dinner, Steve!

Y'all are getting some good deals on artichokes in your areas. They've been 2/$5 here for quite a while now. They are really big, though. Trader Joe's might have them for a little less, but I don't get down there often.

A friend brought me a bag of cherry tomatoes from her garden today, and I've been eating them like candy this evening. So that was dinner.
