Ultimate Dad Meal

Sometimes being a Dad is hard. But we Dad's love to figure out how to make our jobs easier. Being a Dad is just a series of life hacks. What new problem can I solve today?

Enter today's problem, "cooking dinner" for your kids. 

When you are spoiled with a wife who cooks/buys/drive-thrus 99% of what goes into your kids stomachs, it can be hard to suddenly be the nutrient provider. 

Enter 1907 Meat Company.

Step 1: Walk into the store and buy steaks of your choice. 

Step 2: While you're there buy pre-made sides like the cheesy potatoes casserole.

Step 3: Dessert is also available. Like homemade cheese cake and gelato from Bluce Spruce. You made need this as a negotiation/bribery tool later. 

Step 4:  Pay with your phone. Apple Pay. Android Pay/Wallet or whatever Google keeps changing it's name to. It's pretty futuristic but not perfect. 

Step 5: Google search reverse sear steak methods. Oh and use a good meat thermometer. 1907 has them for $10. At the same you can bake the cheesy potatoes. 

Step 6: An hour later eat. Don't forget desert or your kids will remember it right before bed time which means bed time just got thrown out the door. 

Step 7: Sit back and drink a beer or two between the cook times. Mission accomplished. Life hacked.

The only seasoning I applied was sea salt.  

George picked a shell steak. AKA a bone-in strip steak. He made the right choice.

Cheesy potatoes took a little bit longer than the steaks to cook. But just a few minutes.  

350 for about 45 minutes. Easy.

Warning the blueberries could be a mistake. Especially if your kids are still in the messy for no damn reason stage.

Why did I write this? Duh. To prove to my wife I actually take care of the kids when she's gone.
