What are you up to this weekend? A system of storms rolled across the eastern seaboard earlier this week, bestowing upon us unseasonably early autumnal feels — highs in the upper 70s, overnights in the lower 60s, humidity cut nearly in half to around 50%!

This Weekly Suppers memory is to Labor Day weekend, when my husband halved a thick NY strip to experiment with two cooking techniques (swoon): one new, a stove-top sous vide hack; the other a beef + pork stand-by, the “reverse sear.” We don’t steak often, but when we do, STEAK.

He finished both in the blazing hot skillet, brown butter-basting. Can you see that caramelized crust?! We shared each, with deep glasses of Pinot + balsamic-doused mixed greens and grilled homegrown eggplant. (In case you’re curious, a slight edge went to the sous vide steak for tenderness + juiciness.)

Sending my wishes for a calm Saturday and Sunday to all. If you’re in the path of the storm, please be safe and smart. To take your minds off that (or perhaps a nail-biting college or NFL football game — they’re baaaack), pop down for a few of the HGN updates + my favorite links from around the interwebs this week.

Cheers, Heather
