I try to keep my meals affordable and easy to feed the family in a hurry.  It doesn't always happen.

Steaks tonight with asparagus, sauteed mushrooms, baked potatoes and bread.

Fillets 9.98 per/lb
asparagus 3.98 per/lb
portabellas 2.99
baked potatoes ??
texas toast.
It is okay to splurge occasionally and with steak do.
This is a very simple meal with little preparation involved.  You do have to plan ahead though,  good steak and time is required (we will talk about cheaper cuts later).  How many days you keep your steak in the fridge before you cook is preference and debatable.  So here is a simple breakdown on dinner.
salt and pepper to taste, let age longer than you think and grill/cook rarer than you think.
NO sauce or marinade needed.
* Be sure to let your steak rest at room temp at least 30 min. before grilling to prevent sticking.*
brush with olive oil,  sprinkle sea salt and bake @ 350 to desired tenderness.
1\4 cup butter
1 tbsp minced garlic
1\2 cup red wine
grated Parmesan
Cook mushrooms in butter and garlic till soft,  add wine reduce and cover, sprinkle with grated Parmesan before serving.
bake add extras
always welcome

Simple and easy but not cheap tonight.  I hope to make descriptions and directions easier to follow as this develops.
