    Very silly indeed, ann! Even I, who love rare steak (and especially rare prime rib), would blanch at a plate swimming with blood before I'd even cut into the meat.
     
    Tonight I did leftover steak stir-fry. I cannot be bothered with cooking when there is football on!

      I didn't just start visiting restaurants yesterday, and I've seen prime rib laying in  a pool of red, bloody something that looks unattractive in the extreme.  That's not au jus!  I don't mind if people want to eat raw meat -- I'll have mine well done, thanks.

        I agree, but I know Mar.  She doesn't want the cow mooing at her when she cuts into it. lol  I believe hers was at least medium... nowhere near rare.
         
        I had mine medium well and it was tender and delicious.

          Well, from all the descriptions I would sure give the Lawry's version a try -- and request a piece off the end.

            Lunch yesterday was at the Vernon County(WI) Fair in the county seat of Viroqua.  That's the next county south of La Crosse, and is extremely rural, total county population 29 thousand something, and its only stoplights are in the county seat.  Big Amish population, clippety-clacking down the country roads, and some award winning small cheesemakers and butcher shops. And lefse! 
             
            It was like stepping back in time; pretty good size carnival with the usual good stuff for kids, some interesting antique exhibits, and watch out for the cow flop outside the cow barn! 
             
            It was great to see all the farm kids enjoying themselves.  You can always tell the farm kids by their work boots and attire, and also their capable and confident manner.  Farm kids learn hands-on about animals and tools from their toddler days.  This was the next generation, and it made us feel good to see them.
             
            We watched a dog obedience judging with a bunch of kids showing off their pooches.  There wasn't so much obedience, but there was plenty of affection, and the kids were bashful and proud and self-conscious all at once.
             
            Lunch was midwestern style sloppy joes at the 4-H tent, served up the kids, and dished up by the dads in the back.  We kind of went there for these, as you can't hardly find them on a menu, but they are always to be found at these events.  This was a real good, mom-type, version.  For some reason people up here call them barbecues, which of course they are not.  You have to ask, or maybe get surprised.

              Know what this is?
               
              Clippety-clop,  clippety clop, clippety-clop, clippety-clop, BANG!, clippety-clop, clippety-clop, clippety-clop........

                  For dinner last night lleechef did stuffed eggplant with a filling of tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil, flat leaf parsley and ground lamb, all topped with mozzarella cheese and baked. Oh, and she made a caprese salad, too. (Gotta keep eating those till the good tomatoes run out.) Marvelous meal.

                    Tonight it's going to be one of his favorites: braised short ribs, mashed potatoes, sauteed zucchini.  AND I just bought a Panini Press!  Should be here in 2 days.

                        Forget about the panini press and focus on the SHORT RIBS!

                          Usually I make this with asparagus or green pepper so it's not so overwhelmingly sunshine colours, but I didn't have any. So be it.

                            It wasnt blood, my friends! Lawrys serves excellent au jus-it wasnt blood.Their prime rib is awesome, and bloodless, as most good prime rib is served.

                              I got to cook for just me, so all restrictions were off! Totally forgot to take the bacon out of the freezer, but whatever. Accompanied by a glass of cranberry juice mixed with a bit of 7-Up. The eggs are made with sour cream, chives and cheddar, and the pancakes are from scratch.

                                I had 2 pickled eggs but the night is early.

                                  I would argue that statement!  I have NEVER seen prime rib that was cooked bloodless unless it was totally scorched to death!

                                    Wrong, Greg.
                                     
                                    The prime rib was perfectly plated in to a pool of au jus.
                                     
                                    I wouldn't have eaten it if it were blood.

                                        Dinner for us the last two nights has been not so good - Sunday night we decided we were tired of grilled meat and salad so we made Jambalaya - green onion sausage, chicken and shrimp -  it was soso - I'm not a big fan of it anyway but this was less than a little bit exciting. 
                                         
                                        Last night we finally got the rain we've been waiting for and rather than fire up the grill we fixed double stuffed tacos.  They were okay but there was just something lacking there - perhaps I'm too critical because I can usually scarf down ANY kind of taco - but not last night. 
                                         
                                        Tonight I decided to simplify things - a real oven baked potato with butter, sour cream and a small bit of bacon and sharp Cheddar cheese and a Caesar Salad.  And of course a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
                                         
                                        I'm - along with the spouse and the faithful puppy of almost 6 years now -  ready for bed.

                                          My hunger continued so I just prepared a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.  I ate half of it.
                                           
                                          Baileysoriginal...  sorry about your meals.
                                           
                                          Felix...  I kind of figured you cheated. LOL

                                            Thanks Mar - we're back on track now - tonight is Sante Fe grilled Pork chops, slow fried potatoes and a salad.  Tomorrow night is beef kabobs.

                                              We went to Dinah's in Culver City for dinner.
                                               
                                              I had fried cod, creamed spinach and canned corn.

                                                NY steaks on the bbq, baked acorn squash, Caesar salad and a bowl of grape nuts w/ frozen blueberries for dessert!

                                                  Last night was a recipe from one of my Weber cookbooks: grilled pork t-bones with a garlic & herb marinade.  Since I was cooking for myself I didn't bother with any side dishes.

                                                    Yesterday morning I found out a long-time friend died in his sleep. So dinner was comfort food at it's finest, followed by entirely too much alcohol. You'll have that. Shrimp and crab au gratin, steamed frozen peas on the side.

                                                      My condolences on the loss of your friend, Felix.  Was this one of his favorite meals?
