For the steak, M just seasoned them with salt, pepper, & garlic salt. We are simplists here, no fancy marinade for us. (Or that could be because M refused to buy any seasoning at the grocery store because he thinks the prices are outrageous.)
The potatoes were so simple and so yummy!
I forgot to take step by step pictures. Sorry!
I used red potatoes and sliced up about 5 or 6 depending on the size of them. Then I threw them in a bowl and used about all of the seasonings in my cupboard.
Pour a teeny tiny bit of EVOliveOil.
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
Dash of garlic salt
Dash of crushed red peppers
Dash of basil
and because I was feeling spicy..
Dash of cajun seasoning
Shake the bowl. A lot.
For the baked asparagus..
Rinse in cold water and break of the ends. They will be somewhat brownish-red and oddly enough it will pretty much break at the perfect place every time!
Toss those babies in a ziploc bag and put in about 1 tsp of EVOliveOil.
Shake bag like crazy! I'm sensing a shaking theme for this dinner!
Don't these look delish?!?
And of course pour yourself some riesling to enjoy with your stay at home anniversary dinner! (The riesling that you send the hubby to get at the last minute when you realize all you have is water, milk, and chocolate wine that certainly won't taste good with steak & salt!)
Indulge in some chocolate lovers ice cream afterwards! And I'd call that a success!
