steak salad

i have never made a steak just for little old me.
i have really only made steak once in my life.
a moment of silence please.
ok, moving on, so yes that steak was all things a steak should be, but it was made for two.
one night last week, i made steak just for me.
the idea came to me on the metro.
remember my last train of thought metro idea?

i began with the plumpest and juiciest tomatoes i could find in my fridge.

covered them in a pool of fig balsamic vinegar and oven roasted them till they were ready to pop.

and i'm bound to fall, bound to fall, for you.

the steak was covered in a layer of butter and coated with citrus rosemary gray salt.
and of course, some bitter rocket greens were prepared in a fig balsamic vinegarette.

the combination of flavors was so richly satisfying i literally moaned.

and then ate three more mini lemon cheesecakes.
