Believe me, it won't happen again when Steve has a talk with the Von's butcher tomorrow.
How I wish we had an old fashioned meat market like my Dad's where the butcher showed you both sides. Those were the days. Sigh.

We went out to dinner with friends and then to see "A Christmas Carol." I was bummed that the restaurant was out of their chicken tortilla soup but the play was fun and the company was great

Speaking of underhanded meat tricks...

I thawed a pkg. that was labeled T-Bone. Turned out to be short ribs. I braised them with onion, carrot, celery, garlic and lots of red wine and had over garlic and leek smashed potatoes. Corn and a green salad on the side. Wondering who got my T-bones....

We've had problems with this butcher before. Years ago I defrosted a pkg. of steak and someone had cut out the eye and wrapped the fat around so it felt like a steak. grrrrr. This time it wasn't our choice, we split a beef with someone. Besides mis-labeling, we were shorted. Only received 3 out of 4 boxes. He did replace the missing cube steaks and short ribs (which turned out to be labeled t-bone, so I have lots), but we never got our rolled and tied Christmas roast. And the guy hung up on me when I asked him why this would not be considered theft. grrrrrr...

I had frozen flank steak strips marinated in soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper, sugar and some powdered ginger. I cut up a bell pepper and onion and celery and stir fried them and added the marinated flank steak strips to the frying veggies. French bread slices on the side. Not bad at all. Stir fried bell peppers and onions are a winning combo.

Leftovers. I finished the other half of last night's prime rib, and the Brussels sprouts from a couple of days ago. Even the wine was leftover.
