Ahh... an excellent dinner, with beloved family.

It don't get much better than that.

Uncle Alex and Aunt Gail's 20th wedding anniversary was earlier this month. Tonight, Lisa and I visited them, returned the compression tool I borrowed for AFLPITA, and took the anniversary dinner we didn't have time to do on their anniversary.

Last night, I took eight 4-oz Top Sirloins we got from Omaha Steak Company, and put them in a marinade consisting of about 2 cups of K.C. Masterpiece Garlic & Herb marinade, about 1/2 cup each of A-1 steak sauce and Lea&Perrins Worstorshire Sauce, about a teaspoon of chopped garlic, a few shakes each of garlic powder and onion flakes, a tablespoon or two of Cholula Hot Sauce, a healthy dose each of coarse black pepper and Mrs. Dash, and about 3/4 of a beer.

Marinated the steaks for about 18 hours, and they turned out GREAT! Served with stuffed baked potatos, grilled Texas Toast, and salad - along with my first batch of homemade beer.

Beer was a tad flat - something with the carbonation didn't work quite right - but tasted GOOD. Even my non-beer-drinking cousin Austin, and Gail, who isn't much of a beer drinker either, thought the taste was pretty good.

All in all, even though it was late, Alex and Gail appreciated their 20th anniversary dinner. Success!

And Granddaddy gets some of the leftovers for lunch tomorrow - he'd already eaten KFC for dinner, or we'd have had him over too... Ahh well. I hope he enjoys it as much as we did.

And of course, the evening full of visiting with family is something NOT to be missed. Got to visit a little with Granddaddy, Aunts Susan and Liz, and Cousin Crystal as well - altogether, a VERY NICE evening :)

Can ya tell I love getting together with my extended family?
