I cooked in my basement lair tonight because Mamma came here and I was to be needed close to my computer.

I fixed broiled sirloin steaks, gravy, steamed fresh peas and stuffing instead of potatoes.

It was very good! The steaks were very light pink in the middle of them. I put a rub of black pepper, minced garlic, rosemary, onion powder and sage over them and cut into the meats so I could rub this into them.

DA was very happy with this!

Mamma, I know you will be looking of my postings. DA said I did very well with this.

Your friend and love to Mamma,
~Cat

Still feeling under the weather, so we ordered out again. I ordered to pork souvlaki sticks and a large tzaziki. Stirling had the two giro pita platter. It was pretty good. No, I didn't eat all the tzaziki yet. Stirling brought me a bag of tortilla chips and I'll use it as dip.

I wish we had a Greek place to order from. I love souvlaki and tzatziki.

(Hope you feel better soon TL).

Long afternoon of meetings. We had redskin potatoes boiled with green beans, served with Gruyere, green onions, sour cream and butter.

Yum! Is there any better combination than potatoes, onion, cream and butter?

(Actually, thinking about it, and I think Pac may agree with me here, the only thing that would add to that wonderful dish - is some bacon!)

DH is doing the cooking again tonight. (he is off work with a strained back, it has improved enough to cook ;). ) apparently we are having beef sausages boiled redskin potatoes with onion gravy served with steamed cauliflower. I believe I will have a glass of wine, while waiting for the main course. :). Dinner is late because I worked late.

Interesting that several people have mentioned "redskin" potatoes.

I am a fan of "Desiree" potatoes (which are red-skinned). But obviously there are many variations of potato in existence.

When you guys say "redskin" is that a particular variety, or a general term?
