Fat, out of shape, and batching it with meat, booze, and pies (pics)

ChubbsChubbs Posts: 4,775

SWMBO and the son are out of town so I surveyed the forum for some meal ideas. All pointed to the same thing... meat and booze. Guess it was a rhetorical question.

First up was steak frites... I picked out what I thought was a porterhouse, but when I unwrapped it I believe it is just a t-bone. Big boy was tossed on the mini for a sear on both sides and finished at a slower roast. Cooked to 140IT. Pretty good meal and the steak hit the spot.

Tonight, I decided on pizza when I had a dough ball staring me in the face. Went with a three cheese pasta sauce for the base. Cheese was my smoked mild cheddar and some fontina I needed to finish. Topped with my favorite--- pepperoni, banana peppers, and basil from the garden. Sorry the last pic is so blurry, but this crust was pretty good.

    I believe a porterhouse is just a couple vertebrae down from the t-bones, kinda one-in-the-same.  140 though?!?!   X(
    Homemade dough, or premade?  And you didn't specify the booze!  
    :D

    Booze with the steak was Jameson and water. Been putting down peroni tonight with the pizza. Dough was homemade a few days ago and forgotten about.

    I don't usually do it either but this was exciting. I bought two and didn't get the right size. Worst part is I'm in the steel business

    Nice work Chubbs!  I hope to see a bacon weave tomorrow ;)


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Hahahaha. I am not really against it. Was joking. I am just waiting on ARs to get back in stock at CGS and I am good on accessories for now. Then a table.
