    I was craving beets and had some, so I made a mock beet risotto last night. Mock because it is not the right rice, and there's no cheese in there. I added fried pork sausage at the end, as well as some sour cream. It hit the spot. I love cooking with beets, the color alone makes me happy.
    Uhmm I’ve never had beets this way looks very enticing! I usually just eat beets cold in salad just oil & lemon salt pepper

    Looks delish!

    I know beets are good for me. And twice a year I go for the most cliched beet dish.......roasted beets with salad, goat cheese, walnuts and dried cranberries.

    been doing noodles lately.  Feed me all week on the cheap.  Sautéed onions garlic. Red peps. Broc. Some mad crispy bacon. Butter. Yum.

    Took Client out in Vegas on Monday night.
    Look at these frigging prices. -- I did not order the $265 steak, but I did laugh at it.
    (I did enjoy a very good steak, just not that one.)

    I will not pay those prices in the US.  But $400 Teppanyaki on the top floor of a hotel in Japan. Hell yes.

    I don't mind paying big money for a splurge meal
    ...just haven't seen a single steak cost that

    It is a Japan thing. We are talking A5 wagyu.  And it is a set meal, not just the steak. Amuse, salad, appetizer, garlic rice, dessert etc.
    Edit: the biggest scam in the US is Australian or US Wagyu. It is not even close to the real deal.

    I love them pickled too! And sometimes I make a salad, with raw diced beets, an apple, horseradish, sour cream, some olive oil, salt and pepper. Your fajitas looked amazing too!

    Damn yeah a bit above my pay scale 😂 would I splurge yeah probably just me & wife we would but still I’d have to walk out of there with the feeling that I just had the best steak ever!

    It's 44 OZ, so not intended for one person. (though I know a couple of folks who might be able to put it away). But still crazy expensive. This is not your grandfather's (or Wobbie's) Vegas of the $1.99 prime rib buffet anymore.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    Saw several people getting it and for themselves.  We are a very large society.  :lol::lol:
    Agree that is huge.

    I’m not sure. I cut up the beef, my wife coated it in something, it sat in the fridge all day and then I “put it together.” :lol:

    We used to get the $2 midnight to 4:00 am steak dinner at the Horseshoe. Steak, baked potato, salad and bread for two bucks. 50 cent beers at the bar.

    I haven't, but you could easily stuff them with cabbage and mushrooms and add some soy, mirin, chives, etc.
