Don't Do This

If you decide to make steak for your husband's birthday, that is a good idea.  If you also decide to make a baked potato with it and absolutely no other green vegetables because he really isn't a fan of vegetables and only eats them out of necessity, that is a good idea. If you decide to make him two steaks because he often jokes that he just wants a second steak for dessert, that is a good idea. If you pick out the best steaks you can find, research the best way to cook them and slather them in butter, that is a good idea.  If you then cut a hole in each one of those steaks and put in birthday candles so you can claim you made him birthday steaks which you think is a hilarious pun cause get it, it rhymes with birthday cake? Don't do that. That's not going to turn out the way you thought.

You see, it turns out that steak that you just got out of a 425 degree oven is hot actually.  So unless you are wanting to give your husband a steak that will have a blue wax speckled center, don't do this.

  1. Oh will you do this for my husband's birthday? Red meat is his love language. And I suspect a wee bit of wax did not deter Mr. Brown from a lovely meal....
