Ribeye Steak

The two older kids shared sliced watermelon and a Totinos
"cardboard" pizza before soccer practice (and yes, we did save the
boxtop) while mom and dad enjoyed ribeye steak, soft potatoes,
watermelon and California vegis after the kids and the baby went to

Soft Potatoes
Wash two medium red potatoes. Boil until soft (approximately 35
minutes) and drain. In a food processor, blend 2 T of margaine, a dash
of salt, a dash of pepper, potatoes (with the skins,) until well
mixed. Blend in 1/4-3/4 c of milk until potatoes are the consistency
of runny baby food.

Ribeye Steak
Bring steaks to room temperature. Rinse and pat dry. Cover liberally
with Spade L Ranch beef seasoning. Cook on extra hot BBQ just until
the outsides are blackened (less than 4 minutes per side.) The inside
should be red. The easiest way to ruin a fantastic steak is to
overcook it. If you prefer your steak to be well done- buy chuck
steak. You'll save money and won't be able to tell the difference.

This dinner only took 5 minutes prep at the beginning and five minutes
before serving. It is the best meal I've had in a long time. Rates a
10 for taste and a 9 for ease of preparation but only gets a 5 for
cost (and that's even with the steaks being on sale!)
