I love to spend a Friday night cooking a lavished mean and inviting my closest friends over. I try to do this at least once a month. Last weekend was the last time I hosted one of these dinner parties. I usually have everyone eat outside and I do some sort of grilling but when it began to rain right before everyone arrived, I had no choice but to improvise. I decided to cook the steaks I had ready in a cast iron skillet on the stove top, so I knew there would be a lot of steam, and to keep the house from getting too hot, I made sure the air vent was on at full speed. I also made sure to keep the a/c system running too. It turns out that leaving the a/c on was a brilliant idea because after my guests started to arrive the house began to feel stuffy. I was thankful that I had done some work on our Heating and A/C component the week before because if I hadn’t I don’t know if the house would have been cool enough to have everyone over. The meal was a huge success because the steaks were good, everyone was in good spirits, plus the house was just as nice as the outdoor setting for a change. It’s good to have a backup plan when hosting people for a special occasion. I love knowing that I have the right tools plus appliances to cook a good meal inside or outside.
