2 Quick Questions---need Quick Answers

sorry for the short notice, guys--i only have two hours for this:

#1. what is a petit sirloin steak? besides being small.

#2. i'm running out of blueberry jam. the brand i like only has blueberry mint jam. i can't imagine how these two flavors would taste together. does it sound like a good combination to you?

thanks!

Your Petite Sirloin steak is just that. Usually a sirloin tip or top..Just a small portion.

Can't help you with the jam thingy.....

#2 Try a blueberry "just fruit spread" type. I make bleberry raspberry jam. That's a good combo. I'd toss a jar to you, but my pitching arm is rusty.

#1 Be careful not to over cook it because it's smaller. It should be a thick cut though

just one more question?

i just now heard about a new peanut brittle---OMG-Bacon Peanut Brittle-OMG!!

that's just Perfect for the PIGGY in Me! now, i need a recipe so i can make some piggy peanut brittle for valentine's day. yeah, i know, it's a rather strange substitute for artisan blueberry jam. incredible idea for bacon lovers though--i'm thinking sweet, salty, smokey, crunchy (yum)....

If you make it, consider using bacon fat in place of butter in the recipe to boost the bacon flavor.
