Had a nice, relaxing breakfast on the patio at Katy’s Place in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA.

Eggs benedict with smoked salmon and caviar

Eggs benedict: 3 poached eggs, smoked salmon, Hollandaise & caviar on top of an English muffin. Country potatoes. Fresh coffee.

Done.

  • chris: I just paid $26 for eggs
  • brian: Knowing you, it probably came with a side of fish from outer space. “Can you make sure the fish was orbiting a moon of Jupiter?”

Rib-eye steak: Butter is better

  1. All-natural rib-eye. Sauteed with lightly crushed garlic & whole rosemary sprigs. Basted with butter.
  2. Organic baby carrots. Roasted. Caramelized with butter and maple syrup.
  3. Organic potatoes. Minced garlic, rosemary, olive oil & butter.

After eating a lot of vegetarian dishes the past few weeks, I thought I’d reintroduce some steak into my life.

It’s the first time I ever “finished” off a steak with butter in the pan. It definitely brings out some extra flavor from the meat. I suggest you give it a try, if you feel like you’re not getting enough fat in your diet. Just throw some butter into the pan during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Then continuously spoon the melted butter on top of the steak to baste it.
