When you’re craving steak, only a steak will satisfy. And that’s what happened last night. I had so much turkey and all the Thanksgiving stuff from last week that I just needed a good ol steak.

In preparation for Beer, Bourbon and BBQ fest this afternoon, I figured I ought to start the day with a well-balanced breakfast.
