Not for the Faint of Heart

Last night was date-night… at home. I picked up an awesome rib-eye steak from What’s Your Beef in Waxhaw. Spent some time pondering what to make for side dishes. I had a fridge full of corn and those awesome Kennebec potatoes. I went ALL OUT. Talk about a heart attack on a plate! I made the most decadent potato gratin I’ve ever had, and it was worth every cream-laden bite! I also used up the last of the corn in the Barefoot Contessa’s corn pudding. Yes, you saw the recipe correctly… it started with a stick of butter.

To make up for all that richness, we’re having Sushi tonight…. and no, I’m not making it!
