Well, at the urging of my son-in-law, Claire and my fav niece who has the same condition as Clint Trickett, I made the Italian Sausage stuffed Steak (Brachiola or Involtini if you will) as an addendum for Christmas Dinner. The wife did her usual rubber turkey surprise as the showcase entree. Even the normally moist dark meat was lethal if launched as a projectile, an needed a band saw to break down into chewable pieces. The steak was as tender as I meant it to be, with the sausage keeping it moist from the inside out, and the tomato gravy seeping in from the exterior. Sad to say folks ended up sousing their turkey parts with the steak gravy, instead of the white, pasty looking concoction wifey makes. I could tell from my end of the table, this bode I'll for yers mostly truly. Not a word was said of course, but after story time for the Gkids was done, I found my bedroom ingress blocked.
Looks like Bandy the Seminole Cat and Uncle Nash are headed for a fist-fight with the winner commandeering the lion's share of the couch. I almost hate holidays sometimes.
Bad Nashy. Showed up your wife on Christmas (smh). No down votes becuz sleeping on a couch is punishment enuf.
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
Cooking is way too important to be left to a woman.
Ancient Greek proverb. Holds true today.
Can't even take GF out to dinner because the food doesn't have "the same flavorful pop" as mine.
Couch is comfy.
Nash, I'm impressed that you can still find ways to end up on the couch even while remaining sober. Bravo. The wifey got so drunk on Christmas Eve that I ended up finding her around 4am on the couch. I woke her with 'what the f$&k are you doing, come to bed'. Aren't holidays grand.
ATGreek, there really is no coming back from good food. When JVille was pretty much the only place I'd ever lived, my desires (food-wise) were pretty modest. Now, I have crazy rules like - I only eat steak in Chicago - I only drink beer in Munich - I only eat Italian in Europe, fried squid in Barcelona, fried chicken in The South, etc, etc. Of course, I always make exceptions if I'm in a pinch, but given options I tend to stick with things that are great locally or average everywhere (I can find a good burger joint in most towns).
Makes me wonder what I'm going to do when I retire and stop traveling. I guess I'll need to become a proper cook like you guys, or give up steak, beer, Italian, fried squid, etc. I'm guessing choice A will be the answer.

Also, I hit everyone with upvotes, as this thread is about 2 things that largely define my life: good food and staying in trouble.
Here's to 2013, more good food than you can eat, and hopefully less nights on the couch.
The couch is way under rated.
Secret is getting them to join you on couch.
Jay, cooking is easy, you just have to get started and not care if you f up.
Number one tip is that it's very much like computers. Garbage in, garbage out. You're not making a good fillet out of a tortoise shell. Shop right.
When I started cooking I got the best advice ever: buy a good steak, cube it into 20 pieces, cook each one in butter and a different spice. You learn real quick about spices and what they bring to the table.
That's a really cool idea, I'll give it a shot. Thanks.
I got an FSU Grill set. The spatula has a FS icon scribed out of it, so you can press it into the burger, and create a logo-burgie! It's just the right size to spank the wife with too. Perfect in fact.
Couch trip. About 2 am., the wife comes to me and says come to bed. I started to stay in place, as me 'n Bandy had worked out positioning so we both had warm tummies. Apparently she realized I was not trying to show her up, I'm just a better overall cook than she is - on some things. She agreed to let Uncle Nash cook the Turkey next time we do one. I told her she can be in charge of carrots.
That reminds me, ever boiled carrots with a full jar of jalapenos and juice? Mmmmmmm.....
