Peter eats vegetables



Vegicide at home. And there's a mushroom under the round of goat's cheese... I do this sort of thing occasionally.

I couldn't manage a steak big enough for 55 candles.......

Tara said...

Happy Birthday, Peter! I love the candles in the steak - brilliant.

In an Amarillo Texas restaurant (the Big Tex, I believe) they sell a 72 oz steak - if you eat the whole thing in a certain amount of time (including a potato and side salad) you get the meal for free. One of my med school professors spent a bit of time in lecture proving that it couldn't be done. But I imagine you could fit 55 candles on it. Happy birthday, Peter!

Happy birthday Peter. Veggies and steak, a winning combination.

Anne said...

Happy Birthday. Candles in the steak - good idea.

The Big Texan is real. I've seen them try but I've never seen one succeed.

Looks like we've got the same birthday and the same age, Peter... Happy Birthday!

Blasphemy! on the veggies; happy birthday on the rest.

It counts if the asparagus was being eaten by the steak. Clearly, you removed the steak's little hooves before cooking. Ergo, I believe that your reputation is still untarnished.

Congratulations Peter! May you live another 55!

Happy Birthday! The steak looks fantastic (as does the asparagus, one of my favorite vegetables!)

Anna said...

HB! You certainly know how to celebrate life.

Hi Emily,

your professor was wrong.

The Lewis and Clarke expedition members ate up to 9 pounds of meat per day when available. This is equivalent to TWO Big Tex steaks. According to William Clark: "It requires 4 deer, or an elk and a deer, or one buffalo to supply us for 24 hours."

I saw a documentary in which three Aborigines ate an entire kangaroo (over 10kg of meat) for dinner.

One of my friends ate 12 sausages, 8 large lamb chops, 28 slices of bread and drank six cans of beer in about 45 minutes at a university barbecue.

Dr Karl Kruscelnicki an Australian medical doctor and science journalist once described eating 3kg of meat at a barbecue. It was apparently quite easy. However Dr Karl is about 195cm tall and well over 100kg.

If you can't eat vegetables on your birthday when can you eh?

Lynn M. said...

My brother ate the whole Big Tex steak and sides and thus got his meal for free. He was a college student at the time, lean and tall.

Happy Birthday!

If seeing is believing, then season 1, episode 1, of Man versus Food should settle the score. Way to go Adam Richman.

The previous comment referred back to Emily's Big Tex 72 oz steak. :-)

AuntWie said...

MMMMM. Looks really wonderful, Peter. What time is dinner?

Peter said...

About half an hour ago, but it was only chilli mix under grated cheese today.... Not that that is in any way an unpleasant meal!
