This post is “just for fun” . . . . . .

Last night, I opened my last bottle of an old (for me), very cheap, sparkling white wine.
I bought it around 1970 to impress the girls while I was in college.
I thought that it was “pretty good” champagne. . . . . which it wasn't.

It is the same “Lancers” brand as the cheap Lancer’s Rosé wine in the red ceramic bottle.
I don’t think it is available any more.

After trying it the first time, I bought a case, and always kept a bottle in the fridge.

End of an era . . . . ;-)

Poor presentation because it was late and I was hungry, but I made a first attempt at lamb the other night.

I picked up a pre-seasoned lamb steak from Walmart, figuring it would be a good intro to eating lamb. (Only tried it once before, in a curry, and it just tasted like curry)

Per instructions on the package, I seared it in a skillet, and oven roasted it to medium-rare. It’s different from what I’m accustomed to, but it was rather good. Really tender too, like a filet.

Looks great nice color inside and out

We visit a few Greek restaurants in our area and the have excellent lamb chops

But like seafood you can get a bad one (to me tastes very strong wild game taste) IMO

The color looked great to me too, and it was good. The seasoning that was on it covered a lot of the natural flavor, but it is definitely a strongly flavored meat, because I could still taste it over the seasoning.

I’ll probably make it again, but I’m not sure it’s going to be a favorite. I’ll stick to my beef prime rib.

Crust looks excellent.
I prefer a little more pink.

Thank you! I would probably prefer a little more pink as well, I just don’t know for sure yet. For a first attempt I think it worked pretty well, but I’m sure there is room for improvement. All I did on this one was follow the directions on the package to the letter, to see how it worked out. Next time I do when I probably will experiment a bit more.

Do you guys eat the fat on a steak or do you cut it away? Ever have steak with cartilage or other types of tissue etc.?

cooked this strip this morning, smothered in Italian dressing first before cooking View attachment 76585
I cook the steak with the fat on, and bone in, if there is one, but then usually trim it off before eating. I’ve never marinated a steak in Italian dressing, or anything else; I prefer just a bit of seasoned salt or occasionally Worcestershire sauce applied before cooking, and nothing on it before I eat it.

If you get a chance try the zesty Italian dressing out, it tastes great!

Depends on the texture if I eat the fat or not. There’s tough gristly spots sometimes in strips and porterhouses, and some of those bits aren’t really edible. There’s also little pockets of marbled fat on a lot of cuts from near the ribs, and that fat is arguably the best part of the meal.

I eat every ounce when I order prime rib, and it’s usually extremely fatty.
