Steak and Ale

As the proverb hath it, Feed the man meat. For this cause, I just had a good panfried porterhouse steak, good and juicy (altho' I wished for it a bit rarer - must remember to cook it even more rapidly next time), with some chips and pickled onions, and a glass of Unibroue's Don de Dieu ale on lees (9%). A toast to the founding of Quebec city by Champlain, on the Don de Dieu, some four centuries ago this year.

Imagine, Bad Queen Bess had steak and ale daily - for breakfast! Indeed she had the heart and stomach of a king, albeit the heretic and wicked heart of her father.

A cup of tea to finish is coming up, and then I'll repair to the chapel for Vespers of the Blessed Virgin.
