Amanda, AKA @the_rocking_of _socks, was looking for a folding table for her bakesale for the "No Child Goes Hungry" campaign. I offered to loan her a couple, so we were playing message tag on FB as to when she'd like to pick it up, and were getting nowhere fast, so I told her if they would come by around 5 I'd throw some steaks on the grill and we'll have dinner ready.
She said that sounded great to her!
You can check out her No Child Goes Hungry FB page here.
She came over around 4:30, and she brought dessert.
Pineapple upside down cupcakes!
I had a nice 1 and a quarter inch thick flat-iron steak, so I sliced it into 4 pieces cause I thought her hubby David was coming too, but he had a prior engagement.
Brushed both sides with garlic infused olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and grilled 5 minutes per side. Slightly more rare than medium rare, and delicious!
Thinly sliced french bread, brushed with the infused oil, and grilled.
Karen sauteed the crab cakes while I was watching the steaks, then drizzled 'em with, what else, Sweet Baby Ray's dipping sauce.
She also nuked the taters, cause we didn't want to light the oven.
And of course, there was shrimpz!
Garden salad tossed with homemade (by Buddly) basalmic-red wine-dijon-garlic vinegarette, and topped with crispy, lightly salted jalapeno slices.
I think Amanda was sending a pic to David, just to rub it in a little! hahaha
But not to worry, we sent him a huge plate home as a midnight snack.
I got your back, man!
Oh yeah, Karen made iced tea, with lemon. I can't drink it without lemon!
Now, that is two satisfied women!
Ahhh, the prowess of Buddly!
Bon appetite, all y'all!
