Jean came home with two amazing looking slabs of Kobe beef after her normal Sunday grocery shopping trip. Having never made Kobe at home before, I took the opportunity to ogle the meat and snap a few pics while Jean made dinner Monday night.
She also made a redwine reduction sauce with a 1/2 cup of Orin Swift’s “The Prisoner”, one of our favourites and the bottle I chose to pair with the steaks.
You’ll see from the pics below how gorgeously marbled the Kobe steaks were, and how we like them a bit on the rare side Amazing is the best word I can come up with to describe this confluence of gastronomic superstars. The steaks were absolutely worth every penny. mmmm
Last weekend was awesome, but I just can’t be arsed to put up a proper blog post. I could do a whole restaurant review, bar review, weekend recap, but I just have no motivation at all…
Suffice to say that I reconnected with a good friend from ages past. Last time I saw her was around 1992/1993. I actually knew here from Jr.High back in 1987/88 and had the benefit of calling her my girlfriend at the time. Too cute
Friday, we met up for dinner in downtown Portland where Jean and I were able to meet her husband of 11 years, and really connect with them both over food and wine and life in general. VERY good times. I can guarantee we will be doing it again as soon as we get out to Boise, or when they come back to PDX!
Sadly, I have yet to locate which box my scanner is in, so you will all need to continue to wait before you can read the magazine article in which I was quoted.
So in lieu of that post, I will regale you with tales of our weekend last.
July 13th is our wedding anniversary, as many of you no doubt read in Jean’s journal. Since we both had to work on Friday, we opted to really celebrate on Saturday. This, however, doesn’t mean we can’t go out at all, so dinner it was. Pictures and weekend excitement follow herein…
