We'll laugh in a year or two.

Yesterday was hubby and I's 6th wedding anniversary. Instead of our traditional dinner out at a steak house, we decided to cook our own steak at home.

Let me just say, its much cheaper to go out.

We wound up eating Subway for dinner, and we now need to replace our stove hood. And we will never try to flambe something in our kitchen ever again.

Keith should have pictures of the aftermath up at the family site soon.

edited to add: It was Steak au Poivre, from Alton Brown. The steaks were fine, it was the brandy that we had issues with!

Keith's comments here, and pictures here.

It's not just steak, it's French steak.

So...when it's done you have to surrender to it and let it eat you or something?

I didn't think the French ate steak. Steak comes from big mean cows. Some of them have horns. Cows don't understand the concept of surrender.

The French eat snails and frogs and mouldy dairy products.

It's a testament to the disgusting things that a good wine can disguise and wash down.

Subway! Oh my dear God! Your anniversary meal was equal to a quick grab & go lunch on the job? I'm so sorry. Congrats on 6 years!
