A Simple Meal

It’s just a simple meal at home … steak, potatoes, and asparagus.

Just a simple meat at home.

But the steak is a filet, one-and-a-half inches thick, seared with a rosemary-infused butter, then roasted perfectly rare, just as they do in the finest New York City steakhouses.

The Grand Market Hall in Budapest.

The potatoes are oven-roasted fingerlings,  dusted with real Hungarian paprika purchased at Budapest’s “Nagyvásárcsarnok” — the Grand Market Hall. The asparagus, bought at a supermarket, is tossed in olive oil sourced locally with cracked sea salt before roasting. 

Admittedly, we do love our wine.

It’s all accompanied by a 2016 Legrein red wine from Italy’s Venetto region; the bottle part of a case purchase from a nearby wine importer specializing in small-lot foreign vintners.

It’s just a simple meal at home, but Judy and I marveled at how we continually bring our travels to our table, re-living the tastes and memories of places we’ve been both near and far. It’s just a simple meal at home, but prepared and served in the manner we’ve chosen to live … always striving to upgrade and reflective of the wanderers we are.

There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored. Bring the simple joy of your adventures home and savor them every day!
