Beef...It's What's for Dinner!

Boy, were these GOOD! Tender! I think Hubby finally has the hang of it! I swooped in for a shot of them and got a snoot full of smoke for my efforts!Hahaaa.....
And This was a present from my sweet sister, Ruth Ann! Isn't it cute? It's an apple pie plate with it's own stand! Love the color! She and I played Beauty Parlor this morning and took turns cutting off our TOO long, locks! She first, then it was My turn. Took off about 5 inches! Feels a Lot better...
Well, as you can tell, it's a good...DO Nothing day here at the house. Feels good! Got fans running, blowing a delightful breeze on me while I type. Got my electric bill yesterday...$166.00!! Wonderful! This is pretty much, an all electric house...except for the stove top and fireplace, and the gas bill was only $11.00. Love those low bills!
Also, just a Reminder....Don't forget to go back and check out Brenda Photo Challenge late entries!!! There were several.
Well, guess I'll go check out the new photography book I bought it's Gonna Help Meh!!!Hahaaaa....Happy night everyone!

Yummy! I love me some good beef on the BBQ. I think I will have to do one of my own here soon.

SquirrelQueen said...

I can almost smell those steaks. I need to leave now and fire up the grill. My electric was $89, fortunately hubs works for the power company and gets an employee discount and the weather has been warmer.

Janice said...

Yum! The steak looks wonderful. Growing up raising beef-that was all we ever had for dinner!

I noticed you were tagged to share the picasa album. I didn't know I had a picasa album til tonight. Apparantly all of the photos we load to blogger are included in it. Hmmmm...who knew? I had 455+ pictures in the album. I found a link to picasa on my dashboard.

antigoni said...

I can almost taste it! LOL:)
I love your Black & White post. Especially Crystal's photo. So beautiful lady!!!

Sandy Trefger said...

Oh yummy! That does look good!! And you cut each other's hair?? Oh so brave are you! LOL

Donna said...

I don't think we ever got over $200 at our former country cottage. Our new place ought to have MUCH lower bills because it is 40% smaller and the units will be more energy efficient. And we can't grill yet, darn it all! We don't have a grill! LOL, that's going to be ordered right after we move in. DH has been drooling and moaning over a honking big Weber model. I told him - honey, you can have any cooking appliance you want to use! Hahahaha!!!

Unknown said...

Oh man these look so good! It's dinner time here in Ohio right now!! My grill won't lite and I'm not sure what's wrong with it! But I love to grill!!
