Even when I'm eating alone, it's nice to make something good. Tonight's fare was a New York steak, marinated for an hour in a garlic, sea salt, peppercorn, and red wine marinade and grilled to medium-rare. I added some four-cheese mashed potatoes and fresh steamed asparagus. Tonight's wine was an organic red Zinfandel from Frey Wineries. Everything was cooked to perfection (okay, I might be a little bit biased) and made for a pleasant sunset evening on the patio in our new yard.
I think it's good for a guy to know how to cook. Not only does it impress women, it comes in handy when you want a steak dinner but don't want to shell out $35 bucks for something you can cook at home for $8.
