Steaks on the Grill

A couple of days ago it was snowing and I was making soup. Today it’s sunshine and blue skies – and I’m grilling steaks. Gotta love Spring in the Mid-Atlantic States.

Today really was perfect weather. Sunny and 70°F – give or take. Warm in the sun and cool in the shade. Great for a bit of yard work. I didn’t do any, but if I had, it would have been the perfect weather to do it. As it was, it was pretty much the perfect weather not to do anything – something I’m very good at.

Dinner was a rough one… I hit the steaks with salt and pepper and put them on the grill. When they were perfectly rare, I pulled them off and drizzled olive oil on them – just like they did with the Bistecca alla Fiorentina we had in Florence a few years ago.


Our waiter was a cutie and after dinner for 7 people with drinks and desserts all around, I think we tipped him something like €75. He was shocked, said, no, it was too much… It was our last night in Italy – we didn’t care. It was a great dinner and he was a lot of fun.

Speaking of a lot of fun… we really do need to get back over there.

Next year, for sure!

In the meantime, we’ll keep cooking up memories and keep making plans for more…
