Romantic Dinner for Two

Томагавк меня гипнотизирует. Пленит просто. Я прихожу в магазин за овощами и креветками, но вижу в витрине мясного отдела томагавк и останавливаюсь перед ним как вкопанная. Стою и смотрю на него. На его цену. На огромную бесполезную кость, за которую я заплачу по цене мяса. На кружево жира. На 2 дюйма толщины.

И представляю как я буду нести его на раскаленный гриль
и держать за кость двумя руками,
и услышу как он немедленно начнёт шкворчать,
и мы плюхнемся в кресла за столом на патио,
и нальем себе по бокалу хорошего вина,
и сделаем первый глоток с блаженным выдохом,
и жир стейка начнет топиться и загорится,
и язычки пламени будут лизать говяжьи бока,
и первобытно запахнет жареным мясом,
и мы будем любоваться гигантским стейком пока он отдыхает,
и потом делить,
и есть сначала культурно — с ножом, вилкой
и бокалом вина,
и приговаривать, что это вдвоем не съесть,
и потом будем передавать друг другу кость
и срывать в нее остатки мяса зубами
и хохотать,
и фотографировать перемазанные физиономии друг друга,
и зверино рычать и строить рожи,
и запивать вином,
и говорить обо всем на свете
и что произошло за день,
и будут орать цикады,
и светить звезды,
и мы наконец почувствуем прохладу вечера,
и что мы дома,
и вместе.
И я беру стейк.

Tomahawk hypnotizes me. It enchants me. I go shopping for vegetables and shrimp but then see a tomahawk steak showcased at the meat department and come to a dead stop. I stand still and look at it for minutes. At its price. At its enormous useless bone, for which I will pay the price of meat. At its gorgeous marbling. At its 2 inches of thickness.

I imagine how I carry it to the red hot grill
and hold its bone with my two hands,
and hear how it starts hissing immediately,
and we plop down into our patio chairs,
and pour a couple of glasses of good wine,
and take the first sip with an exhale of relief,
and watch how the beef fat melts and burns,
and the flame licks the sides of the beef,
and the primal smell of grilled meat spreads around,
and we admire our tomahawk while it’s resting,
and then share it,
and at first, we eat it like two well-mannered adults — with a steak knife, a fork,
and a glass of wine,
and say no way we can finish it,
and then we pass the bone to each other
and gnaw the remains, tearing them with our teeth,
and laugh,
and take pictures of each other,
and make faces snarling like animals,
and wash it down with more wine,
and talk about everything in the world
and what happened during the day,
and cicadas buzz loudly,
and the stars shine,
and we finally are in the cool, cool, cool of the evening,
we are home,

And I buy the steak.

Imagine the whole variety of steaks. There is a steak for any couple — with a similar or the opposite tastes and appetite! A small lean girly filet mignon is on one side of the scale, and a giant fatty manly tomahawk is the opposite. New York strip is for those who have slightly different preferences in doneness — one side of it always cooks more than another because it is more narrow. Porterhouse steak is for those who like different fatness and meat texture — it combines a decent portion of filet mignon and NY strip on the opposite sides of the bone. Want a tiny portion of lean meat? Go for t-bone steak. Find your steak and share it!
