Lawry’s ♥

So Uncle R is in town again this cold and rainy night. We need something to keep us warm, something piping hot, something nourishing, something like… Prime Rib! (Sorry, we are so not soup persons.)


But first, we order some salad in an attempt to live a healthier lifestyle. See, mom, dad, I do eat my veggies even when you’re not watching.

A blend of crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce, shredded beets, chopped eggs, cherry tomatoes and croutons, tossed with Lawry’s vintage dressing in a salad bowl spun on a bed of ice.

Now for the prime rib, I usually have the petite cut (yeah yeah), but we are here for warmth tonight so I choose a bigger piece. Just for tonight, promise! 

IMG_6655Come on, chef, bring it on!

I have the English Cut - three thin slices, deftly carved to heighten the beef flavor. And these are three huge thin slices! How I manage to finish everything, I blame it on the rain.

Uncle R likes his prime rib extra thick, and he likes only half of it. He packs the other half and insists I take it home. Hello there, tomorrow’s lunch!

The food at Lawry’s is ok good, but definitely not the greatest. It will not make you do cartwheels and back flips, but it is consistently good, and always reliable.

In the end, a good meal is all about the company.


IMG_6646Thank you, Uncle R, for being great company!
