Thanks for all the great comments on my first post! The good news is that my website should be up and running sooner than later, granted some major changes on it will happen over the next month or two. The anticipation is killing me!
This next recipe is one of the few that I can say is truly my own recipe. Normally I’ll get inspiration from a cookbook or magazine and then make a few tweaks to have it suit my tastebuds, but not this time. I first made this dish when we were in Mexico this winter. We had FINALLY moved into our little casa (see our blog www.casadeclack.com for more info on that gig) after three years of building. After spending the last few years holed up in a tiny RV kitchenette, I really wanted to make a special dinner to celebrate the first real meal in our new house. Keep in mind, our place is in the middle of nowhere basically with just the equivalent of a 7-11 to buy basic groceries like eggs, milk and cereal. So when we had to run into the big city, La Paz, for a trip to Home Depot, I stocked up on groceries there and found some good looking ribeyes. Without internet, I had to come up with my own recipe for what I had been craving: steak with a creamy mushroom sauce. Honestly, I probably would have been happy with anything that didn’t contain rice or beans though. : )
