The best beef steak is a combination of a lot of things:

1-Breed of steer.
2-Type of feed and grass fed is always better.
3-Age of steer,preferably not over 2 years old.
4-part of animal the steak gets extracted from and everyone knows it gotta be the ribeye steak,if you want the most tender piece of meat to grill.
5-Last but not least is the way it gets prepared before it lands on the dining table for your tastebuds to enjoy.

Before you buy the steak always check local ads and try buying it while on sale.
Get the following ingredients with the steak if you don't have them already at home:
-yellow and red bell pepper.
-garlic pepper and salt.

After all that take the steak and coat it really good with the above spices and you can always put other spices depending on preferance then let the steak absorb the spices as you dice up a little bit of each bell pepper as too much wouldn't be fun then put some butter on a hot pan followed by the diced bell peppers and let them sautee till they start changing color and filling the air with irresistible aroma.

Take the sauteed bell peppers and transfer them to a different container and throw the steak on the same hot pan and let both sides grill and kinda feel with a finger for firmness to avoid overcooking and depending on whether you like it medium rare or rare just use your best judgment and if you like well done my personal suggestion is get a thinly sliced steak that will cook through within a very short period of time and it's easier to avoid having a very tough piece of meat.

A couple of minutes before taking steak out throw the diced bell peppers back in and depending on whether you like them on top of steak or the starch you will have your steak with is upto you.
After you take your steak out you can serve it with white rice or potatoes and any choice of side veggies,mine is a green salad.

Snow Falls After Christmas in Eastern Washington State.

It's a little sad that snow was nowhere to be seen around here on Christmas day when everyone was really hoping it would snow.

If it were to snow just once in a year am sure most people would wish that happens on Christmas eve all night and wake up the next day to a whole bunch of snow and unfortunately in eastern Washington state this year Christmas eve was mostly rainy and a little bit of snow that was pretty much overtaken by the rain.

So i guess this weekend after Christmas is a day to celebrate lots of snow that's still giving.

How to Make Crepes Recipe?

Learn to Make Crepes Recipe

A crepe is really a pancake in cuisines in some parts of the world.
Originated in France and now commonly made in India and East Africa and is mostly known there as a pancake.
The easiest recipe for crepes I believe is to first make sure you have the following ingredients:
  1. All purpose wheat flour.
  2. Eggs.
  3. Sugar.
  4. Whole milk.
  5. Butter or vegetable oil.
Take about a cup of flour and mix it with about 1/4 cup of sugar and crack a couple of eggs then slowly stir the mixture as you add milk till you get the right consistency,a little runny,a bit more than you would when mixing cake mix and if you don't like to use milk you can replace it with water.

And you can also add blueberries if you like or other spices like cinnamon and nutmeg if you prefer.
Have the your pan hot then add a little oil or butter,then scoop about a 1/4 cup onto the hot pan and spread it around starting from the middle outwards till you get it as thin as possible and as soon as the bottom side turns brown then flip it and add more oil or butter and it's all done when the other side is brown as well.

Depending on how many you would like to make you can always use more flour and the rest of the ingredients too.

Extreme Fog in Eastern Washington State Today

Friday the 5th of December is probably one of those days you wish you didn't have to drive anywhere around here.

Slushy roads and lots of fog aren't a very good combination if you planning to drive anywhere and couldn't be worse considering it's a Friday when most people are planning to travel and unless you have to, it might be a better idea staying home.

The Best Tasting Hot Tea!

Take any tea of your choice, I prefer to use Lipton.
Put about 3/4 of a cup of hot water and a tea bag or two depending on how strong you would like your tea and fill the remaining 1/4 with Half & Half and microwave for a couple of minutes then add about 2-3 table spoons of honey and stir it up.

There you have it, the best tasting cup of hot tea with natural ingredients without artificial sugars.

Note:You could use the same method for coffee and this mostly applies to those that like creamers with their hot bevarage of choice.

The Maasai Culture And Trophy Hunters Verses Lions.

From around the 15th century, the Maasai people had occupied most of Kenya and northern Tanzania, and with a  fierce warrior culture, they were a formidable group of people who actually have been credited to protect most communities around them from the slave trade.

For over 400 hundred years the Maasai warriors killed male lions as a right of passage as well as gain respect in their community and this is as deeply rooted in their culture and way of life for as long as they roamed the African savannah.

To give you an idea of how important this is to a Maasai warrior just imagine yourself in pretty much hand combat with a 500 hundred pounds male lion with nothing but a spear, Maasai club and dagger.there's no bows and arrows involved or guns for that matter so its pretty much an intimate situation with the most effective predator on the African savannah.

Its worth remembering that facing a male lion that can take down up to a 2000 pounds buffalo with a spear is really a matter of life and death, and am pretty sure no trophy hunter in their right mind will attempt what the Maasai warriors have been doing for centuries.

Am not writing this because am advocating for Maasai people to hunt lions as a matter of fact am against it but I absolutely respect their culture and unlike trophy hunting, they don’t do that for financial gain or self-pleasure as most sports hunters do.

There are facts that need to be put out there though for everyone to hopefully know that despite the fact that governments in east Africa and especially Tanzania have vilified the Maasai, more than 50% of all African lions are in the land that Maasai occupied for centuries.

You will more than likely see all the news in Tanzania of how Maasai culture is destructive to lion conservation but what you will not see is the lucrative sport hunters with lots of money who more than likely are killing lions faster than anything else in the world or you will not see even the recent undercover footage by the environmental investigation agency that reported the Tanzanian government had killed 87000 elephants for 9 years an equivalent of 26 daily and dealing with the Chinese officials to satisfy the never-ending demand for ivory in China.

You have to remember that probably the majority of elephants killed is in the Serengeti which the Maasai had occupied for centuries long before it was considered a national park with no incidents of Maasai ever killing elephants or other wildlife with exception of male lions and even then the lion population in Maasai land is considerably more healthier than anywhere else.

The majority of Maasai currently have changed their way of life by stopping lion hunting for conservation reasons but what is growing is trophy hunting and underground businesses dealing with ivory and rhino horns which includes poachers and in this case even corrupt government officials.

The whole idea, especially of lions and Maasai warriors in Kenya and Tanzania, has honestly been a distraction from the real challenges that wildlife conservation faces today in both countries.

 the government of Tanzania currently is in the process of evicting more than 20,000 Maasai from loliondo which is part and among the fewest last ancestral lands that Maasai occupy today and letting Arabs from the middle east occupy and gun down wildlife including big cats.
