Yeah, this is what I had for dinner the other night, homemade french onion soup and steak and arugla sandwich.
Here's Stephanie enjoying the veggie version of the sandwich. The rest of us had thin slices of marinated flank steak, but steph doesn't eat cow, so we grilled her up a veggie burger and slapped it on there instead.
This sandwich was killer. Blue chesse dressing made with fresh cheese and sourcream, fresh spicy arugala, a nice tomato, what else could you want?
Kim was a champ in the kitchen that night. I kept dropping stuff and was afraid of the over, but she was the Iron Chef of 884 Saturday night.
Here you can see the beginnings of the sandwhich. I sliced a french baguette in half lengthwise (without cutting myself!) and then started layering!
Kim was the brainchild behind this fabulous pieces of puff pastry and spinach heaven! Look how good!
It was impossible to follow the recipe for this soup, they said not to stir, but who could resist? And it still tasted great.
Yummy, steaming up my camera.
We let Andy do the "manly" things, like grill (because I'm afraid of the barbecue) and then use the big knife to slice the steak.
And yes, I'm afriad of the broiler too (it's under the oven, never seen that before, and seems too damn close to the floor to be safe)so Kim took on the responsibility for me.
Yes, we saw most of this food prepared on a FoodTV show the day before and decided to quit whining about it and just go make it. I'm so glad we did. It's not like boiling two kilos of pasta for 13 people, but it was quite a thing.
