First, buy a thick, juicy ribeye or New York steak. Grab some garlic and rosemary too. Don’t forget a big ol’ potato for dad. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and LOTS of freshly cracked black pepper. Slice up the garlic and break up the rosemary by hand, and rub into steak thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes up to a few hours. Rub the potato with butter and salt and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour at 400 degrees. Keep potato warm and covered. Remove the steak and let come to room temperature. Heat a cast iron pan (or whatever you have) until it’s smoking’ hot. Add a huge chunk of butter, turn the heat down to med-hi and add steak. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Don’t touch it yet! Add some more butter and flip. Use a spoon and the butter to “baste” the steak and let cook undisturbed for another 3 to 5 minutes depending on how dad likes it cooked. Remove steak from pan and tent with foil, and let it rest for 4 or 5 minutes. This will make dad mad but it has to rest. Remove potato from foil and cut it down the middle. Add butter, sour cream, chives, bacon and cheese (or whatever ya got in the fridge. Try salsa and guacamole for fun!). Plate the steak and add pan dripping on top of meat. Serve with an extra strong and dirty martini. Or two. Disclaimer: Vegetables omitted on purpose. My dad hated em’!

GARLIC SIRLOIN STEAKS DONATO 4 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese 3 tbsp. butter 1 tbsp. marsala wine (we use any red wine we might have around) 1 tbsp. brandy 1 tsp. tomato paste 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. pepper 1 sirloin steak or 4 sirloin strips or filet mignons Combine all ingredients except steak in a food processor.

...Preheat oven to 350 F. Butterfly the steaks to create 8 pieces, lightly pound each with the back of a small frying pan. Season both sides of each steak with salt and pepper. In a large heavy skillet melt 1/2 Tbsp butter on high heat. Add 1 or 2 seasoned steaks at a time and sear 1 – 2 minutes per side. Remove cooked steaks and keep warm in an ovenproof platter. Add ½ tbsp butter, melt and sear 2 more steaks, repeating all the steps above until all the steaks are cooked and being kept warm. Over medium heat add shallots and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Lower heat to low, remove pan and carefully pour brandy into pan with the shallots (trying to avoid flame). Return the pan to the stove and cook for 1 minute. Add the white wine. Increase the heat to a simmer. Stir in mustard and add the stock cooking for 1 minute. Whisk in the cream and bring to a boil. Remove sauce from the heat. If the steaks are cold, reheat them for 1-2 minutes. Pour sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with the chives before serving.

Eating too much or not eating enough as a way of dealing with stress can make it hard for you to take care of yourself and your diabetes. Stress and some foods, like white rice, white bread, cookies, pies, or cake, can all raise your blood sugar level. Not eating enough food can cause low blood sugar. If you have diabetes, it is important that you make healthy food choices to keep your blood sugar levels under control. Be aware of the times when you feel down and the kinds of foods you eat when you are stressed. If you ﬁnd that you eat high-calorie foods when you are feeling down, try having healthy foods around the house to snack on. Healthy snacks include non-fat/no sugar ice cream, whole wheat bread or crackers, low-fat cheese, or half a banana. ❑ Choose whole grain foods— whole wheat bread and crackers, oatmeal, brown rice, and cereals. Tips to Handle Stress When you feel stressed: ❑ Limit the amount of solid fats and sugars when cooking or eating by trimming fat from meat, using less butter or margarine, and using less sugar. ❑ Make your meals lighter by using nonfat or low-fat milk, cheese, or mayonnaise. Use cooking spray instead of oil. • Talk with an elder about your concerns. ❑ Eat a healthy snack between meals. • Be with others that you have fun with. ❑ Choose water to drink. • Do something nice for someone else. • Take a nature walk. • Learn a new activity, like ﬁshing, horseback riding, or some other things that you might enjoy doing with others. Be sure to also talk to your health care team (diabetes educator, dietitian, doctor, nurse, psychologist, or social worker), your spiritual counselor, or some other person that you trust. They can help you get the support you need.
