Real Men Eat Red Meat and Stand With Wendy

I've been in DC for a few weeks now and have really enjoyed myself. I've met a Senator and a handful of Representatives and have been impressed with all of them- shocking, I know. But I feel like my heart's still in Austin. 

I don't cook as much meat since I started dating a vegetarian several months ago, but I like to go a little crazy when she's not around- she's in Texas for the next couple days. Last night I ate like a Stark of Winterfell. I like my meat rare and last night was no exception. Does it make me a man? Don't be silly- what you eat has nothing to do with whether or not you're a real man. I do however believe that real men support women's rights. At this very moment Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is filibustering an insanely restrictive abortion bill that will pass if she stops speaking. She's been talking for over 10 hours straight- without water, food, or even a bathroom break- and has a little less than three hours left. I hope she dropkicks the entire Republican party in the face when she's done. I stand with Wendy.

In the time I took to write this post, the Republicans stopped Senator Davis's filibuster. I still stand with Wendy. 

Rare Steak and Brussel Sprouts

1 lb. Boneless Beef Sirloin Steak
1 lb. Brussel Sprouts
Olive Oil
Garlic Pepper (because it's what the guy I'm subletting from has)

Slice Brussel Sprouts in half. Drizzle with Olive Oil. Sprinkle with Salt and Garlic Pepper. Roast at 375 until charred and delicious (maybe 15 minutes- I didn't really check).

For the Steak: heat some Butter on a skillet (I still have no grill access...). Sprinkle Salt and Garlic Pepper on the pan. Cook each side for just a couple minutes. Enjoy.
