Pass the A1 sauce...

There is a controversy in my house and revolves around A1 sauce.
In my corner, I love it. I put it on cottage cheese (yes I do and its super, super good), I put it on hamburger 'steaks' and I like to put in on my regular steak.. but....
In husbands corner, A1 is the enemy of the day. He warily eyes it and me as I put on my food, then just shakes his head. He will admonish me to 'try it without before you put it on food' so I have all but given it up on steak.
I'm sad. I love A1. I love the taste but more importantly, I love the memories it evokes. The first steaks I ever had were from my dad. He would grill steaks every Saturday night and we'd eat them with baked potatoes. And each meal included A1 on the table.
My dad used it and whatever my dad did, I was going to do too. Thus, a fondness for the taste grew.
I love a good steak but I don't care for eating the meat just on its own. It seems lonely without the A1. Now don't get me wrong- I don't drown my food in it and I do appreciate the beauty of the meat on its own. I just like to have a little pool on my plate
for judicious dipping and not to have glowers of unhappiness at the lack of my sensibility.
I just finished a bowl of cottage cheese and A1- lifes little pleasures.. :) Happy early Fourth, Dad!
