The Hubs team, UNC tarheels, lost to their rival, Duke, last night by one point at the last second. It’s a dark day in this house. The Hubs said he woke up at 4:30 in the morning thinking about that buzzer beating shot. Yikes.
Oh men! They’re so easy to please, yet so frustrating to deal with sometimes. Things that upset Hubs:
2. electronics breaking/malfunctioning/not being able to “hack” them
3. other computer stuff/electronics stuff that I do not, and will never, understand
4. car trouble
Things that make Hubs happy:
1. meat, preferably steak, or buffalo wings
Well, that pretty much sums up my husband in 8 bullet points. Here you go honey. Sorry about your basketball team.
NY Strip with Brussels Sprout Hash recipe from Sunset
- 1 pound small thin-skinned potatoes, cut into chunks
- 8 ounces brussels sprouts, quartered
- 2 New York strip steaks (about 12 oz. each)
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
- 1 1/4 teaspoons pepper, divided
- 2 cups slivered red onion
- 1/4 cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary leaves
- Simmer potatoes in a large saucepan of water until tender when pierced, 8 to 10 minutes; in last minute, add brussels sprouts, cooking just until they turn bright green. Drain.
- Preheat broiler. Rub steaks with vinegar, 1 tbsp. oil, and 1 tsp. each salt and pepper. Put steaks on a broiler pan; broil 6 in. from heat, turning once, 8 minutes for medium-rare.
- Heat remaining 3 tbsp. oil in a 12-in. frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring as little as possible, until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add potatoes and brussels sprouts and cook until browned slightly, about 4 minutes. Add wine, scraping up any caramelized bits from bottom of pan.
