Where's the Beef?

Do you remember Clara?

Clara was in Wendy's commercials always asking Where's the Beef? It was a very successful campaign for Wendy's. So much so that anyone who saw those commercials still remembers them to this day. They have a new young guy asking the same questions in their commercials now.

Now I am not really a big meat eater but last week I cooked up a tri-tip steak we bought at Costco. It was one that is in a package already marinated and all you have to do is put it in a pot and cook in the oven for an hour, take it out, let it sit for a bit.

Hubby got home late from work so I was not sure if we would even eat it.

He was hungry and so he made two steak sandwiches and used about half of it. I then sliced off a piece and ate it. Oh my, it was so good. Moist and juicy, another piece, wow, another piece. Not sure how many pieces I ate but pretty soon there was only a small piece left. I had not even cooked any veggies to go with it. Nothing. Just the steak, not even making a sandwich. Who was this person? I did not even know her.

For the next two days, I left the piece in the fridge in case hubby wanted more, then hubby worked late another night and that piece called my name. I ate half and saved the rest for hubby, but then latter on it kept calling. Gone in a few minutes.

Hubby finally asked for it tonight. Uh, I ate it. He said, "The whole piece that was left?" Uh, well it was rather good. He just shakes his head.

Funny thing is that I just want to go to Costco and buy another one. Normally I would rather eat pastries or fruit and veggies. Meat is not the major part of my meal and usually it is chicken that I eat.

So I am thinking that when I go to Costco tonight, my first thought is going to be; "Where's the Beef?

Go here to see the new commercial.


  1. That's a great story. I like steak but it has to be done right. We have a butcher in town that we get steak from. I hope your second steak is just as good as the first.

  2. ha. it has been fun to see the new commercial with it...like me a good steak too...tell hubs you snooze you lose..smiles.

  3. haha definitely a fun commercial, I like a steak once in a while but the only meat I eat mostly is chicken, of course being a picky eater that doesn't come as much of a surprise..haha

  4. I always loved Clara. What a feisty old broad she was! I've returned to being a red meat-eater once again. I had forgotten how good a steak can be. In fact, steak is being grilled tonight! Cheers!
