Raoul’s Two Cents: January 21, 2022
Delicious, Decadent, Dish
WARNING: This might make you hungry
If you expected to read something cool and amazing today, sorry to disappoint. I was actually hoping to write something cool and amazing but I got sidetracked by a temptation from hell.
There I was — waiting for a new set of tires to be installed on my car. I loitered in Sam’s Club to kill the time. I wasn’t planning on buying anything but temptation was staring at me on aisle number 25 — a package of raw, juicy, glistening marbleized steak. “Buy me! Buy me!” it said.
Due to health concerns, I had not bought red meat in years. Sure I’ve bought hamburgers and eaten steak sporadically but not to buy raw beef — to cook in any unhealthy way I wanted. It was so long in fact, that I wasn’t sure how many minutes I needed to broil it.
I gave in. There! I said it! I lost the battle. I was like a thief arriving at home with the loot. My daughter also salivated and decided to cook her special mashed potato, heavy on the garlic. It was a bright afternoon and we were already thinking of dinner. How decrepit!
Bless me father for I have sinned! But the smell and taste of burned dripping fat was amazing. I must have had 3 bowls of that mashed potato and a pound of delicious, decadent steak.
So when I turned on my computer to type this email, my mind was already gone. Cool and amazing never came. But guilt and thoughts of another bite did. I’m getting sleepy and a battle inside my tummy has already begun.
TGIF people! Burp! I am signing off.
