the monthly cooking segment: a little bit of everything...

announcer: hello, boys and girls. welcome to this month's edition of 'food you wish holly had cooked for you but instead ate all by her lonesome.' today, our lovely contestants are mr. steak and mr. salmon. say hi, everybody.

audience: *applause*

announcer: let's get to know our contestants. mr. steak, tell us: what do you bring to the table?

steak: i bring a lovely grilled charm, a smoky cajun flavor, and am warm and pink on the inside.

audience: oooh!

announcer: and salmon, my good fellow, what can you tell us about yourself?

salmon: well, i'm pretty in pink, good for the heart, and just a little flaky. *grins sheepishly*

audience: ahhh!

announcer: how will holly choose between these two excellent choices?

audience: *troubled murmurs*

announcer: what's that? she doesn't have to? well, folks, this is a new one on me! i have never seen the lady take both of them home! *laughing* well, i guess there's a first time for everything. tune in next month for another exciting installment.

audience: *applause* *joyful dancing*


i don't mess around, people. i am serious about my food.

bam: steak. grilled. some salt, pepper, chili powder, and some cajun sauce. yup.
wham: salmon. grilled in a dab of olive oil. a little pepper, a pinch of garlic salt, and some mushrooms to top it off.

and if you thought my grilled potatoes were good before (and i know some of you do because that was the only thing you ever really asked me to make when we lived together), i took them to a whole new level:

kapow! i added asparagus. that's right: red potatoes, sweet onion, mushrooms, asparagus, salt, pepper, olive oil, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and some garlic salt.

go ahead and be jealous. they were awesome. here's what they looked like, cooking away:

and here's the final product on the plate:
