A steak with caramelized onions is the nectar of the gods.  It (almost) doesn’t get any better!

Even though I got home early today, Victor cooked – and a great meal, it was.  He seared the steak on the stovetop, and then into a 450° oven for about 10 minutes.

Remember that oven picture a few posts back where the where the turkey filling spilled all over the place?!?  Well… I hadn’t cleaned the self-cleaning oven, yet.  Do you know how much smoke is produced by a 450° oven with lots of fun spills in the bottom?  Do you know how cold a room can get when all the windows have to be opened to let out the smoke?  While hoping the neighbors don’t call the fire department?  Really cold, really fast.  And fortunately, no one called the fire department.

The steak was cooked to perfection, the onions were heaven on earth, smashed potatoes with a dollop of sour cream… frozen peas…

Another successful dinner…

(Mardi Gras is Tuesday… I’m gonna make a gumbo!)
