Grilled Ribeye with Tomato & Poblano Chile Sauce, Shrimp Mashed Potatoes

Leave a comment

Hubb’s birthday was yesterday and I didn’t do anything for him. Nothing. Nada. I didn’t even get a store-bought cookie cake.

This is NOT typical. Normally, I throw him a party of some sort, whether it be just a small cookout or a big surprise, I always do something for him. This year, we just have so much going on, I couldn’t pull it together. It makes me feel terrible. I love to celebrate my family.

So, in some sort I effort to make up for my lameness, I wanted to make him a nice dinner. The evening didn’t go as I had hoped, because once again, work got in the way. I manage to have dinner done by 7:30pm. A good two hours after our normally dinner time. Please, make me feel worse about this…

Well, at least the meal turned out well.

Giada de Laurentiis Grilled Ribeye with Tomato and Poblano Chile Sauce

The only adjustment I made to this recipe was the I only ended up using one chile… It was the perfect heat so that the kids would still eat it.

Also, I don’t think I would put steaks in freezer as she calls for… It was a bit to rare in the middle. I think 30mins in frig would have been fine.

Seriously, why hadn’t I tried this before. My two favorite foods, shrimp and potatoes, together?!?!? Loved it!!
