Dinner with Matt and Dana

Our son Matthew, called on Thursday to say that he and his girl friend Dana would come up Saturday night for a visit. I love when he comes home just to hang.

Dinner needed to be something easy since I was working Saturday.

I presalted a couple of nice thick Prime Rib steaks Friday night. They were
left to air dry in the fridge all day yesterday. Rubbed with lots of garlic and coarse black pepper and grilled. Served with fresh green beans, roasted potatoes, cauliflower and cherry tomatoes sauted with garlic and tossed with fresh basil. Thankfully they both like their meat rare.

Dessert was also easy. I still had some of last years blackberries in the freezer so I baked a Blackberry cobbler before leaving for work.
