As life would have it, I was in the hospital for a few hours for a medical procedure. Suffice it to say that I had not eaten in 36 hours. I’m in the room awaiting my turn and there’s a TV on the wall. What show was on for 1 hour but Rachael Ray. You ALL know who she is!
The theme of the program was FOODBALLS, on the pending Super Bowl game, and food to make and eat. The main food that she was cooking a Beef Brutus Sandwich (Sliced steak and Caesar Dressing subs). You can watch the Video here and see her recipe (copy and paste into your browser) :
The nurses and staff were busy so I guess that they didn’t pay attention to this…
As it turned out I had to be there and extra hour due to the patient ahead of me having problems. My stomach growled and I had to look at a close up of this juicy beef sub, spread with Caesar dressing, topped with Romaine lettuce, with Parmigiano-Reggiano shaved cheese curls….
Yes, and that was 36 hours without food and longer by the time I was out and to home and to EAT MY VERY OWN FOOD. I am reminded about the place where we all go for blood work and we have to fast from the night before. At one time, people were bringing fast-food, drinks, etc. and finally a sign went up. The smell of the food must have generated a lot of complaints.
So now I have a good recipe and just need the flank steaks, long rolls, and away we go.
