Just A Perfect Day!

I am not a fan of the Facebook feature, Today's Memory, or whatever it is called. But this morning I woke up I checked my email and Facebook before getting out of bed and the memory Facebook was sharing was our first Smithereens concert. It was a video of the song Only A Memory. At that moment I knew today was going to be great day.

I was firming up this weeks menu. Archie has to put his two cents in. Yes, we will have chicken.
Off to Bishops for veggies. Heading to Stop and Shop for the rest of the list and I noticed a Grand Opening sign. Ferraro's Market was open!! I was not sure of what the store would be like. I heard that you had to order online and then you picked up your order at this location. Well, they sell every cut of meat there. I was so freakin' happy it was as if I walked into Macy's and they were having a 75% off sale on Birkenstocks. I picked up a Delmonico Steak Boneless Rib Eye Family Pack for $14.00. That was 3 steaks, I was thinking ahead to Sunday morning breakfast. Steak and Eggs anyone?
The steak was the best steak I have ever had. It was like butter. Melted in your mouth.

For a side dish I made a Shaved Zucchini Salad from Bon Appetit. I used Patty Pan Squash and Zucchini. I used Feta in place of the Parmesan.

And this afternoon I made a jam with blueberries, blackberries, vanilla and sugar. That's it. Just those 4 ingredients. More on that in tomorrows post.

Well, if you make jam you have to make English Muffins too. Right? 

This was a perfect Saturday that started with the Smithereens and ended with Marky Ramone's blitzkrieg & Andre W.K. Live in Rome!! This is what I bake to on a Saturday night. Rock on!
