At home, I got the steaks out and let them come to room temperature, then salted and peppered them. Mark, my husband, got the grill going since I am terrified of propane. I hate the "whoosh" sound the grill makes when it first ignites. There is enough bleach in my hair that once it catches fire, I wouldn't have any left! Lord have mercy...lets not even go there.
Back to the steaks.
Once the grill was screaming hot, Mark threw them on for 4 mins on each side. He even got the grill marks all pretty.
Staying far away from the grill, I put the potatoes in the microwave, shredded some cheese and put the salad in bowls. I also set the table and got the butter and steak sauce out.
When everything was done, we sat down at the table and had a wonderful (and cheap) steak dinner. The freshly grated cheese on the potatoes with butter was awesome as well as the ginger dressing on my salad.
I think we all are trying to save as much money as we can nowadays and what better way than eating at home? We had a quality meal that would have costs us mega bucks at a restaurant AND we can eat in our PJ's if we want to. When I cook for my family and friends, it means that I care about them enough that I would risk burning my hair just to feed them. That is love right there! Just kidding, but sitting down at the table together for a wonderful meal is a great way to spend time with family and friends. So, save some money and catch up on life with those you love, eat at home.
