Another Steak:

- 14 ounce grass-fed Rib Eye, pan-broiled as previously described;
- Topped with a Beurre Rouge, which sounds fancy enough, but is really just a simple, but delicious, sauce made by deglazing the pan the steak was cooked in with shallots, red wine, butter, and parsley;
- Paired with a 2008 Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon in homage to Craig and Norma from their recent pizza-fanatics trip to to NYC  ;D

Those steaks look awesome Adam.

I like the 2008 Jadot Volnay as well. We had an absolutely over-the-top 2009 Burgundy barrel sample tasting Friday night. There are some fine wines in that vintage for sure too.

Can you buy beer on Sunday in PA?
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.

Trinity,

You can buy beer to take out on Sundays, but it has to be from a restaurant or pizzeria that sells food and you are only allowed to buy a certain amount at one time. No beer distributors or liquors store are open Sundays, at least around my area of Pa.  The liquor stores in Pa. are run by the state.  Supermarkets in our area are not allowed to sell beer or other liquors.  I am not sure how the laws pertain if you go to a winery or a place like the Renaissance Faire on a Sunday. I am not sure, but think around the Phila. area there are some places that are more lenient, or might be changing. These are the strange laws in Pa., called Blue laws, for selling liquor.

This is the Mount Hope Wine Shop at the Pa. Renaissance Faire on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mount-Hope-Wine-Shop/78520967507  I think they are allowed to sell wine on Sundays.

I can't keep up with all these laws in Pa.  :-D

Actually where I was in PA supermarkets could sell Wine and Beer but not liquor or mixed drinks. Many stores have beer and you can buy it on Sunday, but you can't buy wine or liquor on Sunday. Many of the stores put up these ropes on that side of the isle.

It seems to vary greatly depending on county, location, and so forth.

Yes.  A few years back distributors were given the option to purchase a 12:00 - 5:00 Sunday sales permit.  Just recently those hours have changed to 9:00 - 9:00.  Beer sales in supermarkets just started in the past year or so, but it's six and 12 packs only, and in a roped off section where food also has to be sold.

Love the liquor control board........ ::)

but you can't buy wine or liquor on Sunday.
You can, but only "premium" liquor stores are open 12:00 - 5:00 on Sunday.


Also.....JMHO, but a multi quote function is a wonderful thing.    :)

In Pittsburgh the state stores are closed on Sunday from what I recall. So no wine or liquor on Sunday at all.

Ok, the one on Smithfield street is the one I went by most of the time lol. That really doesn't make any sense then........why ban liquor sales by the grocery stores on Sunday, and then open state stores that are allowed to sell on Sunday? Monopoly?

In 1933, just four days before the sale of alcohol became legal in Pennsylvania, the Board was officially organized. Upon its creation, Governor Gifford Pinchot stated that the purpose of the Board was to "discourage the purchase of alcoholic beverages by making it as inconvenient and expensive as possible."


It wasn't until the last 4-5 years that they have loosened their grip.
The State of Pennsylvania the largest purchaser of wine and liquor in the nation.

I'm really liking the photos Trinity posted. Looks delicious.

I heard on the radio a while back that the USDA grading system is done by the look of the meat and that taste has been going down in quality. We've come along way in making the meat perfectly marbled but are losing taste at the same time.

A USDA quality grade is based on two factors: 1) degree of marbling of the ribeye cut between the 12th and 13th rib and 2)degree of maturity - or rather physiological maturity (the USDA does not generally know the actual age of the animal) as indicated by bone characteristics, ossification of the cartilage, and the color and texture of the ribeye muscle.
