The Reluctant Cook: Don’t send me to the store

My husband, a chef and BBQ fanatic, does most of the grocery shopping, especially anything related to meat. When he sends me to the store with a list there’s usually one item that I don’t know anything about. I seriously get a little nervous as I search the aisles for that one conspicuous item.

Let’s take a quick look at the meat section.meat

You have chuck, cube, filet mignon, flank, New York strip, porterhouse, rib eye, round, sirloin, skirt, t-bone, tri-tip, Salisbury, chateaubriand, flat iron, hanger, and rump.

Last night, I was directed to bring home a flank steak, and after scouring through all the varietals, I sent a text to my husband.

While I was waiting for him to text back, I found the butcher who located the flank, and once in my cart, not confident this is what he wanted, I sent him the picture of a much rounder steak than his description of “flat looking.”

He immediately called and told me to put the $11 (ridiculously overpriced, I found out) steak back. He said something about having a tri-tip in the freezer at home that he’ll take out. Oh, and on my way to the check out to please grab some beer.

I was retelling this story today to a colleague and she has similar fears when she’s been sent to Home Depot to “pick up a couple items.” We laughed because she also takes photos of screws and bolts; and she shivered when I mentioned the herb section. I wonder if there’s an app, that’s like a grown up picture book, for gals like us to use on our culinary adventures to the grocery stores and farmer’s markets…

p.s. Here’s what horseradish looks like.

You took the time to stop by and cruise around my site and for that I am very grateful. I'm looking forward to letting the creativity run wild.

p.s. I write, not to be read, but for the pleasure of writing.
