If I Strip for You Will You Strip for Me?

Published on: 05-10-2017

Now there’s a way to get you to read my blog, right? Well before you get your shorts all in a bunch, stay with me for a minute. I’m on a bit of an 80s nostalgia kick. No reason in particular.

No, that’s a lie. There are lots of reasons, actually. First of all, my eldest daughter just got back from the trip of a lifetime to Israel – the same trip I went on when I was 15 in 198…never mind. And now she’s graduating from middle school in a week so that means she’s going to high school. No more elementary school. No more noodle art. No more pajama day. No more swim team (we actually never did that but it fits with the theme of my post so don’t judge). No more things you do when your kids are little that you can’t wait to never have to do again but now you really won’t have to do them again so you’re sad that you’ll never get to do them again.

So yah, I’m thinking about the 80s. A time when I made mixed tapes with songs from Adam Ant and Squeeze and John Cougar Mellencamp (he wasn’t just John Cougar then) and a splash of George Winston. Tapes that I find in old boxes and my kids ask “What is that?” that look like this:

I actually have no idea what’s on here and no cassette player to ever find out.

So, I’m left with my nostalgia and that “Wow, life really does go by in a blink” feeling. Which it does. Really. Crazily. How does that even happen when Mondays just seem to drag on?


I rarely eat steak. I almost never cook it. Mostly because I don’t know how. Or didn’t know how, I should say. But in honor of my daughter’s return to the USA and my very strong nostalgia from the 80s I decided it was a perfect thing to make. So I learned how. And man, it was good. No grill involved. Just one SIZZLING. HOT. PAN. And some Adam Ant on the Sonos.

We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you will you strip for me?

My god, what were we thinking with this guy?


2 New York Strip steaks (fat trimmed)
Appx 1 Tbsp of each: Kosher Salt, Pepper, Coriander, Garlic Flakes, Paprika, Dill Weed, Thyme
2-3 splashes Worcestershire sauce
1 splash olive oil
few pats butter or margarine


Preheat oven to 400. Prepare your spices in a jar.
Wash and pat dry steaks.
Splash each steak with some Worcestershire sauce and then sprinkle with appx. 1 TBSP each of spice mixture. Do this on both sides of steak and then leave out for appx. 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, take a cast iron pan or pan that can go both on stove and in oven (not a non-stick pan!) and heat on stove on medium high. When pan is super hot drizzle olive oil on one side of steaks and sear in pan. **Turn on FAN and open windows so fire alarm doesn't go off 3 TIMES!! Also, don't turn steaks. Sear just one side on medium high for about 3-4 minutes.
After 4 minutes, flip steak and turn heat on stove OFF! Then, add a few pats of butter or margarine to the other side of the steaks.
Take the hot pan and immediately put into the oven which should be at 400 by now. Leave in the oven for approximately 5-6 minutes for medium steaks. Leave for 2-3 minutes if you want rare steaks. Remove from oven and let steaks sit a few minutes before cutting.
Serve with mashed potatoes and always a glass of Merlot. Now you understand why I wrote this?

I love Sour Patch Kids. I'd eat Ranch dressing on my shoe. My kids think I like my computer more than I like them. I have road rage.

    Ha ha!!! You are hilarious. Can you please share what’s on your mixed tape so we can laugh more at my house? We have two very small children who wouldn’t know what Adam Ant was unless it was a Disney Cartoon!! Love your blog.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It seems like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Aw, this was a really nice post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to produce a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to
    get nearly anything done.

  7. These are truly enormous ideas in about blogging. You have touched some fastidious points here.
    Any way keep up wrinting.

  8. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  9. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  10. Hello there, I found your site by way of Google while looking for a related matter, your website got here up, it seems to be good.
    I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
    Hello there, just was aware of your weblog via Google,
    and found that it’s really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.

    I’ll be grateful if you happen to continue this in future.
    Many people will be benefited out of your writing.

  11. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. Hi there excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this take a great
    deal of work? I have absolutely no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any
    suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask.

    You could definitely see your expertise within the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart. “A simple fact that is hard to learn is that the time to save money is when you have some.” by Joe Moore.
