When your life is insane, and you need to make dinner…

At the risk of sounding grandiose, I want to talk a little about inspiration.

I am not talking about inspiration from On High, or that feeling you get after watching a good underdog movie.

I am talking about inspired dinner ideas.

It seems almost every night of the week there is something going on: school board meetings, gymnastics coaching, baseball practice, church activities, etc.

Sometimes it’s easy to grab a frozen pizza and just throw it in the oven. But other times, we crave real food. Sometimes, we want something easy, nutritious, and delicious.

In order to fill this need, we have a freezer full of beef! Assuming we thought ahead in the morning and remembered to thaw the meat, it is so simple to prepare a quick, easy, delicious meal.

We recently pulled out a few New York strip steaks.

New York Strip -- Raw
I need to point out the marbling! This is from an older, grass-fed cow. That is a beautiful steak.

I’m a simple man, and I enjoy a simple steak seasoned with salt and pepper, so that’s what I did here. We do not have a grill, so our steaks are pan-fried in a cast iron skillet, about 3-4 minutes per side over medium high heat.

After removing the steaks from the heat and letting them rest for several minutes, we cut them open to reveal a beautiful medium rare steak.

And BOOM! Simple, delicious, quick, and easy. Truly inspired.

I assume many of your family is similar to our family. You are always busy, but you also want to feed your family something healthy and delicious.

I highly recommend getting a freezer full of beef. And I also happen to know a source for excellent grass-fed beef. If you are interested in purchasing a quarter, half, or full beef, let me know! We would love to help inspire and enliven your family meal.
