Did you ever see the customers in health - food stores? They are pale, skinny people who look half - dead. In a steak house, you see robust, ruddy people. They're dying, of course, but they look terrific.... Bill CosbyYesterday was a 'looking terrific' day. I have made a distinct effort to cut back on red meat and have been moderately successful, but when inch and a half thick rib steaks are on sale it's still hard to say 'no.' A hot charcoal grill, a thick, fat strewn steak, lots of smoke, neighbors coming outside to sniff the air - it was a good evening. And with steak there is almost always red wine. The one in the glass is a 2006 Phoenix Ranch Napa Valley Syrah. It was as good as it was the last time with a steak.
