I am ready for a feed of that soon myslef

Now I'm hankering for a bowl of French Onion Soup topped with lava-hot cheese!

I always used provolone but a shredded mixture of that and Gruyere would be even better!

We went to Outback and my steak was overcooked... again.

I love when you say "4 seconds a side" and the wait staff says "so you want it rare?"

No.. Rare is a particular time on the grill... I want it 4 *bleeepin* seconds a side.

So, why do you go? I've been once. Totally underwhelmed and pricey. The one nearby closed after about 2 or 3 years.

The steak is decent enough. Usually we go to a different Outback. My name and instructions on how to cook my steak are next to the grill at that one. This one is close to Kathleen's work.

As an aside.. I got steak.

Kathleen went to a steak place and got pasta. I enjoyed mine.

We finished up unbreaded pork tenderloin sammies left over from lunch. I'm gonna steam some asparagus and top with Bearnaise sauce (Knorr, thanks PF!) for parte deux. Too cold to go out! I think my blood has thinned from the mild winter.
