Rubbed the Wrong Way

Last week I was in Fort Lauderdale with my sister visiting my niece and her husband. We had a fantastic time. On Saturday we went shopping and we were in a Williams Sonoma store and I saw a variety pack of rubs. We have just this year starting using rubs on our grilled meats. I thought what a perfect idea for Chris. Sold.
Well tonight I took out two Steakhouse Cut Sirloin Steaks and applied the Smoke House Rub. Oh what an awful thing to do to two beautiful steaks. The first ingredient in the rub is Applewood-Smoked Sea Salt. Oh it was way too salty. And the meat was cooked so perfectly. So this was a live and learn lesson. If we use a rub we will be making our own.
Dinner was not a complete loss. We had Jake's corn, always delicious. I also made an Arugula Salad and some Eggplant Turnovers.

Oh and the wine was quite good...
But enough about food. Today I took Lucy to the vet for her yearly wellness visit. I walked in the office and saw a photo of Lucy and she was named Pet of the Day! So she got a free mani & pedi, saving me $25.00!

Dear Lucia, Good idea to make your own rub, this way you control the salt and use the seasonings you like.
The eggplant turnovers sound good.
Congrats to Lucy on pet of the day!
Blessings dear. Catherine xo
