I remember when I used to invite my future wife over for Mushy’s Special steak and baked sweet potato by candle light! I think my cooking was part of what wooed her in the first place.

We tried to re-live one of those wonderful evenings the other night – wanting to make it just as special.

For her, it was a thick juicy filet and for me, a big juicy t-bone!

The weather was perfect for grilling, not too hot, and not too cool, with the smell of spring flowers blooming in the backyard, the birds were still singing, and the Black Dog Ale was cold.

In the oven, the huge sweet potato was baking for about an hour, while I prepared the butter and brown sugar!

All went well; the steaks came off the grill perfectly cooked, having resisted turning them more than once.

The meal was delicious, even if the fresh portabella mushrooms and sweet Vidalia onions were still safely hidden in the fridge! They would have been nice with the steak, like in the old days, but best I can remember…there was no room anyway!

How sweet....wooing your sweetie by cooking for her! You're a man after my own heart, Mush! My hubby has always taken over the cooking on the weekends.

I'm glad I found THIS blog of yours! There's some good stuff here!!
