Dinner

Thursday night is “steak night,” although our interpretation of “steak” varies greatly! Tonight was a rib eye, grilled outside to a perfect bluĂ© and served with the remainder of last night’s Strawberry Harvest salad, enhanced with an avocado, and buttery sweet potato.

Tonight’s sweet potato is a Japanese variety with a purple skin and white flesh inside. It’s also a little less sweet, which definitely suits our taste better.

  • The dry aged rib eye steak was $21.86, or $10.93 per serve
  • The salad kit is $2.99 but we get four serves, or 75c per serve.
  • The avocado was 4 for $2.99, or 38c per serve
  • The sweet potato was $1.97 or 99c per serve
  • Add 50c per serve for butter, garlic and seasonings.

While you can get cheaper steak, it’s hard to beat Prather Ranch’s meat for quality and the pricing is similar to aged beef at Whole Foods. Even at $13.55 per serve, this was a great meal for a good price.
