With Mrs. Chicken and I being empty-nesters for a couple of weeks, last Thursday I decided to make dinner a little nicer than usual by grilling a couple of rib steaks.

I remember that years ago many restaurants used little wooden paddles that indicated a steak's doneness and sometimes they were used to pin onion rings to the meat, but since I don't have any of those paddles I had to use wooden skewers instead. On the plus side they were very handy for some mushrooms as well!

The only paddles I'd need would be the "Rare" ones! :lol:

We definitely eat better when the kids aren't around! :wink:

Brad, I'm not sure if there's such a thing as "just a steak", but those look fabulous. I remember those wooden paddles as well, though the places I ate at switched to plastic after a while. The skewers look more fun anyway. :cheers:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Thanks, Tim! Occasionally I get pretty close to "black and blue", especially if I don't take the steaks out of the fridge until the moment the grill's ready.
