Just for Moe

I was out for lunch with a friend and just wasn’t hungry tonight. So I grilled Moe a New York Strip and baked him a potato. I think that he would be happy if I made him a baked potato every day.

Breakfast for Two

Steak and Eggs Scrambled Eggs with Sautéed Mushrooms and Fried Potatoes Have I mentioned before that Moe loves breakfast? Decided to spoil him with one of his favourites. Steak and Eggs. Beef tenderloin pan fried and served with sauteed mushrooms and fried potatoes. He had his eggs sunnyside up. I skipped the steak and just…

Dinner with Matt and Dana
