The New York steak makes US all good.

There is nothing more unreliable than the memories of writers. Remind them of what they wrote last year and they will vehemently deny it. Such is their hold on facts. No sooner have they put down their feeble thoughts and their mind’s shredder takes over and it all ends up into oblivion. Forgetfulness is their raison d’être for writing things down. Forget about vivid evocative pictures as absolute truth.

That’s why my posting the link to Dutch Professor’s Cees Hamelink’s ‘Apology to Putin’ ought to be taken in the same obscure vein. He might well fall in the category of being a nutcase. His writings as short-lived as a fly spinning around on the floor in a last frenzy. It is my own default position; Why not those of others?

Even so, I don’t think America was all that pleased with Mr Fidel Castro either, perched on their side of the world. I have some sympathy for Putin being chagrined about sharing a border with a Pro-West leaning country. Can you imagine the Golden arched Big M in front of the St Petersburg’s Winter Palace?

I am sure the US was miffed with the leftists governments in South America. I have seen enough Oliver Stone movies to consider that the victims of Pinochet, the uprisings of Nicaragua by the Sandinistas, many of the Latin Countries, opposed by the CIA and their induced bloody adventures, would far outweigh anything that has happened so far in the Ukraine. Don’t get me going on Colombia and their past pro US dictators. Garcia Marquez wrote all about that.

It is after all Father’s day.

As early as yesterday I was treated and feted as a good father. I chose New York Steak with peppery sauce. It was fabulous and America is the best country in the world. I haven’t had such a lovely meal for a long time. Sorry vegetarians, I admit to liking a meaty dinner but as a concession and feeble purgatory aim, I have also doubled my vegie and fish intake.

Before plunging in the details of New York Steak, I believe it is known as Porterhouse in England and in Australia. It is the short loin section at the back of the cow. I suppose ‘New York’ steak adds weight and ..above all prestige…Some of my best friends are American and I have always revered New York ,even considered visiting it many times.

An impression once caught sometimes lingers forever while others end into oblivion. I am sure that my New York steak with peppery sauce has now made me benevolent, even more determined to visit that lovely country. We might even go far South to partake in a piece of grilled, honey glazed honest Kansas Steak.
How about that?
It’s delight will last forever.

    Reading this may well tip me over the edge. I’ve had a meat-free week (not Irishman I hasten to add) and lived on nothing but lentils and veg(can you imagine the farting?) I could kill for a steak with pepper sauce now. Happy Father’s Day, Gerard😀

      There are recipes for vegetarian New York steaks and involves the delights of parsnips and lots carrots with probiotic advice concealed as pepper sauce.
      The subsequent farts can be caught in some device that will fire up the IPhone in an emergency.
      (hope this helps)

    I’m completely out of touch with the opera scene of today, and I know NOBODY performing. This dame is something else ! – where does she generate the volume from ? – the throw ? How can that little slim chest cavity DO that ? What a dish ! What a Norma ! I shall steal this, Gerard – with acknowledgement.🙂

    The idea of a non-meat steak is appalling. Where would the blood come from?

    Your default position is far more entertaining than Cees Hamelink’s who sounds as nutty as a string of vegetarian sausages. The steak looks good!

    When we think of the US there is so much to praise AND so much to condemn. As many countries, especially as big as this one, it is a complex one.

    The music is divine. Song by a Russian diva in Italian on German soil. Very much a mix as the US is too.

    Food is something else again. While enjoying the food there should be no talk of politics.
