Normally, Fantasy Football is a point of contention between Johnnycakes and I because of all the time Johnnycakes spends watching football, researching players and stats and just generally talking football with his friends. Tonight, I actually found a reason to like Fantasy Football! Since tonight was "draft" night for Johnnycake's Fantasy League, he was anxious to eat before the fun began. I was running a little late from work, and when I got home Johnnycakes had dinner all prepared. All I did was fix a plate!
Dinner was a classic "meat and potatoes" dish which always aims to please. He seasoned the sirloin steaks in "Rudy's Rub", a Texas blend of barbecue spices, garlic pepper and salt before grilling them out back. An overly generous portion of sour cream topped the mini baked potato. All that topping was probably overkill but it tasted good! A healthy dose of steamed broccoli helped to round out the meal.
I'll tell you, I hope the rest of football season goes this well. I'll have to repay the favor by fixing him some "tailgate" treats once Ravens football and the season gets underway.
