Since this Covid 19 thing started, things have certainly quieted down across the board. The grocery stores around here get picked clean and it becomes interesting trying to decide what to make for dinner. The other day, I opened my front door and there was a white styrofoam cooler on my stoop. I checked it and it was Omaha Steak from my dad. What a nice surprise.
I opened it up and found hamburgers, hot dogs, fettucini Alfredo, Mac and cheese and a couple different filets. Im very excited to have a steak with some bleu cheese melted on it.
My son and I had a burger the other night. VERY tasty.

I gotta get busy and build that bat house my dad wants.

Ive never had it before. So far, the burgers were very tasty. The steaks look nice.

That's seriously nice, especially right now! Does your dad need an adopted son???

I've been helping my mother out (I have a vastly larger grocery selection in this area than she has), and brought some things. I recall hand soap (she needs hypoallergenic), the dishwasher stuff she uses, cleaning vinegar...after she lamented not being able to find ground beef more than 80% lean, I brought 3lbs each of 93% and 85% lean. (Walmart's prepackaged tubes, which she isn't a an of...but they had it.)

Hot dogs are a vice for me. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I like my steaks pan fried. If you toss a little bacon grease in to lubricate the pan you'll think you died and went to heaven.

That was very thoughtful and wonderful.

I hope you enjoy it.

NOthing like a local butcher shop though.

When there is NO killer Virus going around.

Just curious did you look to see if the Filet Mignon's were grass or grain fed, they sell both but are famous for their grain fed steaks.

I've had them several times, very good as long as you don't over cook them.
