Steak House Dinner

I love, LOVE, sauteed mushrooms and these were some of the best I have ever made! The steak was grilled, this past week we had 70 degree temperatures in the middle of October! The potatoes are a winter staple in our house, I love roasted root veggies. The key with potatoes is to just leave them alone, don't stir, you stir and they won't crisp up for you. Then for whatever reason, and I did feel a little guilty because I knew they came from too far away, my local grocery store had asparagus on sale. So we had grilled asparagus even though it wasn't spring time, and oh where they good! All in all it was a fabulous meal in my book.
