I can't believe it. On Thursday our little Boy Who Was Once the Bean will be three months old. It's amazing how time flies. And how incredibly precious it truly is when you feel like you have so little of it. I feel like time is slipping by me faster every day as our chunker grows and hits new milestones. All of this speeding around had me thinking that we needed a bit of time to do something special and slow down to appreciate all of the blessings we have in our lives. Obviously, that meant food.
E's Father's Day gift was a bunch of doodads for our new Weber and the glorious gift of meat. The grilling issue of Bon Appetit arrived a few weeks ago and I dog-eared just about every page. Many of the recipes are too time consuming for me to make right now, but these two were quick and decadent enough to make for a very special meal. I never buy steaks this pricey, but they were perfect and totally worth it. Thank you, Bon Appetit, for making our first Father's Day so deliciously memorable.
