Well I went to Sams-Club today to pay off Christmas. There was a line, which I am now convinced that it was staged, so I decided to wander around to get free food. Don’t judge me! As I was pacing the monument of American excess I found… fingerling potatoes, with different colours. The wannabe chef in me started howling, screaming and begging to use such a seldom found ingredient. So off to the meat counter, “What goes with potatoes?” I asked myself. “You moron,” I answered as several customer started to glance my way, “Beef, its what for dinner.” A package of round steaks hit my cart with a thump. Then I asked my self WWABD, What Would Alton Brown Do? I’m not sure what he would have done, but I went with Blue Cheese. That right Jody I’m back baby.
This was a very simple recipe I used a fajitas skillet over medium-high heat to sear the meat that I had seasoned with olive oil and salt and pepper. I mixed some butter and cheese and after I flipped the meat I put the mixture on top and through the whole mess in a 425° oven until it was done. OK it was a little over done it was medium not med-rare like it should have been.
PS After all was said and done going in to pay my bill cost me $80.00. I bought other stuff too, Don’t Judge Me.

he he he about going in to just pay your bill! The meal looks absolutely delicious!!!!! When are we coming over? just kidding. Although, it has been way too long since we have made it down there…..we’ll have to see what we can do about that.
PS I got a camera too!!!! It should be here in a day or two!
Ryan- who among us hasn’t fallen to the wiles of “free samples” and been led down a long and winding road? My judgements are reserved for a more pressing problem. I am starting to wonder if there’s some nutritional deficiency that creates bleu cheese cravings – or maybe, as I’ve come to suspect, it’s just a mental problem. I refuse to believe that it’s me.
Good to have you back bud.
