So you’ve heard of engagement chicken, right? It’s a miraculous baked chicken that you make if you are in the market for a proposal. They do say a way to the heart is through the stomach…

Well, I’m already engaged, and almost married, but if I needed to, ahem, push a little towards an engagement? I’d make my Midwestern boy this meal. Meat and potatoes.  I oddly enough, really didn’t grow up eating the wisconsin classic of meat and potatoes.

My fiance? Full-fledged except that we rarely eat that way now. He loves potatoes, I never really buy them. He loves meat, I like it sometimes. So when I wanted to make a special meal just for him? It was simple – a meat and potatoes dinner straight from the Pioneer Woman Cookbook.

Ribeye Steaks with Whiskey Cream Sauce and Rosemary Potatoes.

It was the Taster who insisted on including a vegetable for dinner. I was fine with straight meat, potatoes, butter and cream. :)

Now I kind of want to propose to The Pioneer Woman, the meal was pretty much amazing.

    We splurged on some steaks this weekend and they would have been much better with that whiskey cream sauce. Yum!
