Yesterday after church we went to a graduation party for one of our friends kids (grad parties are a big thing in Minnesota). The cook, my buddy Rick, is a butcher at a local grocery store and really knows how to prepare a piece of meat.
He started with a slab of top sirloin, sliced it thinly, marinated it for two or three days, and grilled it on the barbie! Then he heated up a wonderful veggie mix in the crock pot (bell peppers, onions, etc) and topped it all off with blue cheese crumbles. Oh it was amazing and I had more meat than I've had in one sitting in a very long time!
And as if that wasn't enough, my wife and I dropped our daughter off at the Worldview Academy Camp for a week after which I surprised her by taking her out to a very nice dinner at Benihana's. I had steak, shrimp, and chicken, among other things, and it all left me feeling like I ate enough meat yesterday to cover a whole week!
I figured I would weigh in at 1-2 lbs heavier today but to my surprise I was only up 0.4 lb! Wow. I won't eat that way today, that's for sure, but I'm sure glad I didn't have to pay too high a price for my indulgence.
