And then one day, in this beautiful world, this cow became my steak.
Fast forward to present, I sit here in Fort Worth’s Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House with the most divine prime ribeye sitting before me. A meal for two. Across the array sits my charmed dining companion. The decision was to share many plates, allowing us to expand our palates and taste what the renown establishment has to offer.
We began with the gulf oysters on the half shell. With a beautiful dash of lemon, these sea creatures were pearls in the mouth with a salty taste to finish. Following, an intermission of wine and laughter. The meal resumed with the main course: the 16oz Prime Ribeye. My dinner companion relayed what it took to prepare this beautiful cut. Because Del Frisco’s is a double eagle awarded establishment, the meat is superb, aged for something over 30 days. I was too distracted by the smokey scents to catch the exact number. Immediately after the main course was plated, the attentive staff served our chosen sides. The dinner companion and I decided on the Creamed Spinach and the Chateau Potatoes. The spinach was creamy and piping hot, as the potatoes were just that but with an added bonus: bacon. Excellent choices if I do say so myself.
Now we sit here ready to enjoy, savor, and relish the company, food, and wine. But before we do, we toast to a beautiful evening and the many, many, many joys life brings our way.
This girl is grateful. The End.
