Steak house dinner

Happy Father’s Day!

Caprese salad with heirloom tomato
Ribeye to share
Sauteed Mushrooms
Creamed spinach
2004 Sinskey Marcien (yum!)

After a lovely day of doing nothing (except for Daddy and E going to costco), we had a delicious steakhouse feast.

Notes: heirloom tomato was not all it was cracked up to be. Dry and somewhat tasteless despite its weirdo shape.

Mushrooms
2 containers sliced baby bellas
1/4 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
thyme
s&p

Sautee onion in butter and olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and mushrooms and toss them to distribute fat. If using thyme, add it now. I left them cooking until they gave off their juices and then took them back. Stirring occasionally until they built a nice fond in the pan. Deglace with a splash of whatever you’re drinking. Salt and pepper.

Creamed Spinach
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1.5-2 C milk or half and half
nutmeg
parmesan
1 package Cascadian Farms organic spinach (thawed and squeezed)

Make roux. Add milk off heat and wisk in. Add salt and pepper and dash nutmeg. Remove some sauce from pot. Add parmesan, stir. Add spinach and stir. Add milk or more sauce to get desired consistency.
