Father’s Day Steak and Grill


This Father’s Day I will be doing the grilling…I’ll let him take the day off…HAPPY FATHER”S DAY!!


  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grill
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 pounds hanger steak
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 pound cherry tomatoes on the vine, or plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 sweet bell pepper (any color), cut into sixths, seeds and stem removed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey


  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a small ovenproof pot, combine oil, rosemary, and garlic and place on grill. Cook until oil begins to bubble, 2 minutes. Remove herb oil from heat and set aside 3 tablespoons in a small bowl.
  2. Brush steak with herb oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes per side for medium-rare (move steak to a cooler part of grill if it begins to overbrown). Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
  3. In batches, brush vegetables with herb oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill, turning occasionally, until tomato skins are split and vegetables are tender, 3 to 5 minutes total. Transfer to a serving platter, along with sliced steak. Add vinegar and honey to reserved oil and whisk together. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then drizzle dressing over steak and vegetables.

Diamonds Are A Girls’ Best Friend

Did you know that jewelry-auction sales at Christies’ reached an all-time high in 2010?
2008 = $384 million 2009 = $273 million 2010 =$426 million.

Seems collectors driving record sales await the possible auction of Elizabeth Taylors’ 33 carat Krupp Diamond ring, that was given to her by Richard Burton in 1968.  The word is the price will go through the stratosphere.

It is estimated to sell at as much as $20 million.  I just can’t wrapped by mind around it.  How crazy is  that?  Just because Elizabeth Taylor  owned and wore the ring may up its value by maybe 13.5 million – but no one really knows.

This is what I want to know… do I get on the mailing list?
