Black Angus Beef with Blue Cheese Sauce.

Hello everybody.

Been waiting for a day when everyone is home for lunch to do these steaks that our dear cousin brought us cause they must be grilled and eaten right away,so this snowy day is perfect.

The steaks are” black angus beef bone in striploin bone calvetti ” was afreaid they won’t be done cause they’re very thick and I can’t do them outside on the grill but they turned out alright, well done from inside.

I used some BBQ seasoning and salt only and pinched them all over then grilled then on top of a very hot grilling pan, kept turning them with a lid on till done. Side dishes were roasted potatoes and sauteed veggies and sauces were gravy mushroom ( ready mix ) and blue cheese sauce ( only for me cause nobody else like it)

This morning I recycled some old goodies, processed some old rock cookies, all bran and mashed dates all together and made them balls, great as breakfast right? and I have two old oranges used them for a fresh orange cake and used the remaining of the Nutella cinnamon icing on top of it after adding some lemon juice to give it a tangy flavor.

Last night I made this new recipe I found,wanted a change from usual hariseh or semolina cake so after searching decided to do this ,turned out nice but as my hubby said it’s not hariseh something totally different guess because it has almonds in it and eggs are separated so it’s a more a cake.


Ingredients and method:

* 4 eggs separated.

*1 cup sugar ( i think 1/2 or 3/4 are enough)

* 3/4 cup melted butter.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 2 tsp baking powder.

* 1 tsp lemon zest.

*1 1/2 cups semolina.

* 1 cup ground almonds.

*pinch of salt.

* sugar syrup ( 3 cups sugar,1 1/2 water and 1 tsp lemon juice)


* Separate egg yolks from whites.

* beat butter,sugar,lemon zest and vanilla till creamy.

* add eggs and beat well then add baking powder, semolina and almonds.

* beat egg whites till frothy and stiff.

* fold in whites into mixture slowly with a wooden spoon.

* grease a medium sized pan and pour mixture in.

* bake in a medium heated oven for 30-40 minutes toll golden.

*Note: you can decorate it with almonds or coconut on top as you wish.

* when done add the cold syrup on top.
