The Football playoffs were on the television and once again the Bay Area was not represented. I just cannot get too excited about football when two teams are battling that I have no particular interest in. What I am interested in is the dinner that awaits us tonight. We are expecting corn-fed bliss tonight. We make no apologies for not embracing the grass fed beef passing fancy. We eat what we love. We love 3.25/pd dry aged USDA Choice Porterhouse cut beef from Willowside Market in Santa Rosa. It is the perfect time to break out my Christmas present; "Original Kettle Premium Limited Edition Weber. It is time for kick-off.
This hunk of beautiful hunk of protein brings joy to my heart. It is so perfect. The Porterhouse has a New York strip steak for me and a tender filet for Ms. Goofy. We actually share both sides of this steak but truth be told Ms. Goofy has a healthy piece of the fillet and I ravish the rest. You can even see me knawing on the bone. Our 75 pound lap dog Lucy gives me a dirty doggy look when knawing activities occur. The new Weber makes quick work of this beautiful steak. A combination of direct and indirect cooking brings this steak to a perfect medium rare. One feature of our new Weber is this thermometer. I did have a very hot fire and the thermometer attests to that. I wonder of the accuracy and will do some further testing later.
Ms. Goofy made dessert of a chocolaty sprinkle topped cake. It does not get any better than this. We have two weeks to prepare for the Super Bowl. I do not care at all who wins. (That is not entirely true. Everybody wants to see the Patriots lose.) What I do care is what we prepare for the Super Bowl Party. I can guarantee it will be tasty.
