Good Eats

So Dave wants to cook great gourmet meals but, well you know how it is... the pocket book is a little thin. We went to Costco and got a whole beef tenderloin and took an online course of butchering 101. Dave's opening line yesterday was, "Hey, so do you want to cut up some meat with me?" I have to admit that it was the least romantic. I told Dave, "So, the honeymoon stage is officially over. This is the least romantic thing that we have done together as a couple."

Actually Food Network's "Good Eats" which if you haven't seen before is very educational and entertaining. I laugh every time I watch it. So... if you can imagine us both watching it on the laptop, in front of us is a 2 1/2 foot slab of raw meat, Dave with knife in hand, and me having to pause and rewind every time Dave doesn't "get it." If you have 15-20 minutes take a peek at Part 1...

I love Good Eats! He has a great method/recipe for pancakes and waffles. His other show "Feasting on Asphalt" is awesome!

I just saw a good one about potatoes today and it really answered a lot of my questions and problems of why my potatoes don't turn out that good! :) I really learn a lot! Plus he cracks me up! - Jen
