DS Cooks Grilled T-Bone Steaks

My son is 11 and I'm very happy that he has enjoyed his FACS class at school. FACS (Family and Consumer Science) is modern vernacular for what I used to know as Home Economics. Anyway, in his class he has been learning about food and nutrition and they were assigned to make dinner for their families and report back about it. Well, I'm delighted to see that DS is picking up some of my love for grilling. We planned out a meal consisting of grilled T-bone steak (medium rare), grilled sweet potato, grilled potato wedges, grilled onions and grilled asparagus. He made a terrific meal (with only a little bit of help).

He learned the wonderful joys of cutting onions!

In addition to the grilled foods mentioned above DS wanted to make a special appetizer. I think it was quite creative, myself.

The veggies came out GREAT.

And the steaks! Yummy.

I think I'll let him cook more often.

I love the picture of your son cutting onions!! Our school system got rid of Home Economics a long time ago. I just think it is aweful. The dinner looks incredible. Great job and thanks for sharing.

Hope this reaches you. I loved your dinner you made: Shabu Shabu - I found it first on Garden Web Food Forum that I belong to. I would really love to have your recipe for the goma (sesame sauce) that you featured as that is my most difficult recipe to tackle and maybe your ponzu recipe, too. I tried your aol link but got a msg. saying it's no good - broken link I guess. You can email me at: arlinekal@xxxhotmail.xxxcom, removing the x's. Thanks so much.
