Happy Hump Day Guys and Dolls:
Do you know what day it is today? “KITCHEN KLUTZES OF AMERICA DAY” that great category in which I am a member. I can clean kitchens, wipe counter tops, open soup cans, make my own salads and sandwiches for work, boil water and use the microwave and toaster oven when needed. I do make a mean hard boiled egg and have been known to make a nice scrambled egg. As far as preparing meals from scratch I’m the klutz and thanks for honoring me with this holiday along with my fellow Guys and Dolls.
June is “NATIONAL BEEF STEAK MONTH.” I guess most of us love a good steak. When I was a kid I never ate a filet mignon or a T-bone steak, you ate a burger that was steak to you. My mother made cube steak once in a while that was my rib eye. Later as one got older you graduated to chopped sirloin, nothing but a hamburger but larger, covered in onions and mushrooms and you could play a big shot and order a baked potato with the works. Finally I turned 18 and soon after left for the service where I had my first real steak at the chow hall some sort of beef tough as nails and I dreamed on my chopped steak once more. Later life got better and the real steaks appeared for me to try and pick out a favorite. If you ever cruise and they offer an alternative restaurant on board do pay the extra twenty or thirty dollars and enjoy the fine dining whether it is a seafood choice or steak. The best filets I ever ate were on the cruises in those dining venues. Royal Caribbean has the alternative dining and I’m sure most of the cruise lines offer the same. Give it a try it is first class all the way.
Whatever you do enjoy a steak this month. Have a great day.
