I made Harry's Spicy Pork Ball Rendang. It was really delicious, as expected. I served it with brown basmati rice.



Dessert was a cold, berry, gelatin soufflé, which would have looked much prettier with some whipped cream piped on top. It was yummy:

That photo is making me salivate. Been a while since I had a ribeye, or any good cut of steak. Sigh, soon as the hubby has a job...

Thanks Somebunny. Yes, one large serving of the rendang with rice in the freezer and about half the dessert in the fridge. It wouldn't take long to nuke the leftover rendang.

PAG, when I was a young mom like you I yearned to be able to afford a Filet Mignon. Now I would never trade one for a flavorful ribeye. To me, they're the best steak on the market, bar none.

Just a normal day for us. Tonight we had chicken fricassee with sage and onion stuffed acorn squash.

My simmered short ribs of beef in barbecue sauce worked out fine. 180F for 6 hours. It wasn't fantastic but kept me going until breakfast.

Bone in ribeye cooked to medium rare has been my favorite from the first time I tried the cut. I've had Filet Mignon also and while it's good, it's no ribeye.

It is and I love blue and white. I use the set and mix and match with my cobalt blue Fiesta-ware. I have dinner plates and bowls for 12. It is the smaller pieces I am working on now like the bread and butter plates, fruit bowls, and so on. My Mom and Gram has them as long as I can remember so at least 50 years I guess.

Those type of sales are allowed deviations from the grocery list. LOL

NICE grill marks on that steak! It was getting to dark out to use the grill for mine so I did the CI skillet sear and oven finish method.
