Shrimp Kabobs and Ribeye

Due to the fact that I wasn’t planning to create a blog post with this meal, the images I shot leave a lot to be desired. The result on the canvas of my tongue, albeit, was a masterful portrait, if I do say so myself.  A flame flavored palate party for two.

Anyway… You may ask if we really like our rib-eyes charred as seen here on the grill.  Well, one of us does anyway. Which is why I only bobbed the shrimp and veggies rather than overcook the shrimp in the process of reaching my wife’s choice of cook temp on her steak. I prefer mine M.R. (medium rare),  whereas she insist on having hers M.I. (mildly incinerated).

This was one 12 ounce rib-eye cut into two pieces by the way. I could have just bought one T-Bone and have been perfectly satisfied with the large “Short -Loin” cut portion, as she will only eat the small cut of the bone (tenderloin), but, I just can’t bring myself to grill a filet-Mignon to the M.C. (morbidly cremated) cooking temp she requires.               So…  moving right along…

I’d only planned on serving steak, kabob, and roasted carrot-n-spuds I had sizzling in the convection inside. But, as a pound of shrimp goes a long way between two people, my egg-sized brain hatched a half-baked idea of  wooing my wife when she came home from work with some eye appealing appetizers. So…  I started looking for a tray that might offer a presentable backdrop stage setting for shrimp cocktail.

And of course, the only one I could find on such a short birthed brain storm required 8 little deviled egg halves to fill in the molded indentations. Oh well, back in the kitchen I go-  but, hey,  I had to boil the shrimp for 3 minutes anyway, so, what’s another pan of water boiling 4 eggs @ 8 minutes putting me out of ? (She more than deserves it).

Once again I apologize for the sad picture presentation, but, to be honest, my wife was the one who suggested I take pictures and resume my all but abandoned blog page. Fortunately, I took her first recommendation, and the photos. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until we had already eaten from, and destroyed the image she had in mind for me to shoot. This of course brought another subtle bit of reconsidered advice from her sweet lips, which, sadly, I did not heed to- “don’t take the picture now stupid”!!!                            I’m joking…

She only “Inferred” the stupid part.                            Happy Father’s Day



  1. Okay, help me out here! I don’t know which to say first: Great to have you back — or — Where the heck have you been — or — Shame on you for deserting your new friends when we have just begun to know you — or — Darn, now you’ve gone and made me hungry — or — I agree with your wife: well-done is the only way to go.

    (In all honesty, I was getting worried about you, just dropping out of site that way. I even went over to your Facebook page — which you said you almost never use — and sent a message just to see if you were still alive. Couldn’t tell.)

  3. Hi Paul, we miss you too and pray you will be able to have the time to share with us again because part of Maturing is learning and when we have asked for God’s wisdom, Jesus our only Teacher leads us into all understanding and He uses those vessels that are fit for His good work. You have a wonderful gift Paul that needs to be shared and we will look forward to you sharing those messages that come from God’s heart of Love for His Children.

    2 Timothy 2:20-22 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
