Yep, Harry, I'm in agreement with you that the red-juices-coming-to-the-surface method works every time. The steak does speak to ya that way when it's ready, doesn't it?
Happy weekend, everyone.
it certainly does after two or three bloody mary's that's for sure!!you're right mate,works a treat,every time!!
glad you use the same method & find it works.can't be arsed with all that weird & wonderful"bend your middle finger over & prod the base of your thumb & if your steak feels the same it's medium rare etc etc"malarkey!!.i'm a cook not a bloody contortionist!!

How many times in November can you say "today is a perfect day". Hopefully many, the month is still young. Temps hovering near 50F/10 C, no wind, total sunlight no longer obscured by leaves in the trees. A guy could sunburn his bald spot if he stood still long enough.

I fired up the grill and made juicy burgers this afternoon. Two of them, one for dinner and one in case I get the munchies later. Sweet sweet baby sized thin sliced red onion, tomato, avocado slices and chipotle garlic mayo slathered on toasted buns. More of the same mayo w/ lemon zest for dipping in wok fired green beans finished on the grill. Finger food. I ate on the back step as I already put the picnic table away for the winter. I just wasn't ready to to go back indoors.

Sounds like our weather a week ago. I sure hope that weather appears here again.

Here was my dinner.

My husband is a photographer, and we have a 2 day show this weekend. On top of that, it started to snow this morning, and we have roughly 6 inches of snow on the ground and it's still snowing. We were both tired coming home, so tonight was a rotisserie chicken from the grocery with some baked macaroni and cheese with bacon. For dessert, I picked up a lovely homemade Saskatoon pie from the craft market that baked while supper was eaten. Fresh hot fruit pie is a lovely thing :)

Wow! Bunch of yummy looking/sounding steaks. It's rainy and 2 C (36 F), so no grilling here.

We ordered from Mr. Falafel. One mixed platter (beef and chicken) and one falafel platter. They were out of tabouli, so we had bean salad instead. It was really yummy, as usual.

I've got an almond cake in the oven.
