Father’s Day is nearly upon us (June 18, 2017). Do you know what you’ll be gifting that special man in your life?
I don’t know about you, but I find shopping for a gift for the men in my life to be challenging. I find shopping for woman to be so much easier. Maybe that is because I’m a woman and I know what I like so I figure other woman like the same things.
I’ve always had a hard time shopping for the men in my life. My dad (paternal grandfather who raised me) never showed much interest in anything except baseball. My father (biological) never had a need for anything. If there was something he wanted he’d jut go out and buy it. As for my husband, he’s super hard to shop for. He has a lot of likes, but there are only so many Dallas Cowboys merchandise you can buy, and we already have too many movies and books. Even my son is hard to shop for these days. He’s almost 18 so he’s more into clothing.
If there is one thing many dads do enjoy it’s food. After all, who doesn’t love to eat?
Are you familiar with Omaha Steaks? Omaha Steaks is an online retailer that specializes in gourmet foods and treats.
Omaha Steaks has been around for as long a I can remember. My mom (paternal grandmother who raised me) used to buy from them often. The steaks she bought were strictly for the adults. Us kids were not allowed to enjoy the fine delicacies. It wasn’t until my late teen years that I had my first bite of a steak from Omaha Steaks.
Omaha Steaks has available a delicious bundle that would make the perfect gift for the hard to shop for man in your life. It’s called the Father’s Day T-Bone Gift Package. The package includes:
- 30 oz. T-Bone
- Gourmet Jumbo Franks
- Potatoes Au Gratin
- New York Cheesecake
- 1 oz. Steak Seasoning
- Omaha Steaks Sliders
Omaha Steaks was kind enough to send me the package to review.
I’ve never had a t-bone steak before. I have seen photos on the Internet and in magazines, but I have never tried one personally. WOW!!! Is it HUGE! I have never seen a steak so big and thick before.
We have not made the t-bone steak… yet. My husband wants to barbecue it on the grill. Since we are not allowed to have barbecues where we live (we live in a condo complex), we need to “borrow” someone else’s barbecue. As it so happens we’re going to a family members home in a few weeks and they have a barbecue. They have already told us that they have no problem tossing the t-bone steak on the grill along with the hamburger and hot dogs they plan on making.
In the mean time, I had no problem digging into the other goodies that came with the Father’s Day package.
I love cheesecake. It’s one of my favorite treats. The cheesecake that came with this package was out-of-this-world delicious. It was so creamy, just the way I like it.
The cheesecake was a nice size too. It was enough for my whole family to enjoy a slice withe plenty left over for seconds.
We haven’t made the hot dogs yet. We are saving those for the barbecue we’ll be attending in a few weeks. We are going to put them along side the t-bone steak when we cook it.
I’ve had Omaha Steaks hot dogs before. They taste fresh, unlike the kind you buy at the grocery store. They taste more like something you’d find in an expensive, fancy restaurant. They don’t taste like your average hot dogs. I also find them to be more meaty (thick, hearty) than regular hot dogs.
I prepared the Potatoes Au Gratin one night for dinner. My apologies for not having a picture of them. I was too involved into eating that I neglected to snap some photos.
When I make Potatoes Au Gratin I used a boxed mix with dried potatoes and dry ingredients (you mostly add water). Needless to say the Omaha Steaks Potatoes Au Gratin are much better than the store bought kind. The Omaha Steaks Potatoes Au Gratin tasted like someone had made them from scratch. Yummy!!!!
This package easily feeds a family of four. The package it’s self costs $59.99 which breaks down to approximately $15 per person. If you eat out often you know that it’s about the average price of a meal. In fact, when we eat out it often costs us more when you factor in beverages, appetizers and/or desserts.
If T-bone Steak is not your father’s/husband’s favorite cut of meat, that is OK. Omaha Steaks has plenty of other yummy bundles to choose from including the Father’s Day Family Feast and the Ultimate Ribeye Father’s Day package.
Omaha Steaks also carries poultry, seafood, appetizers, wine and dessert. They have a lot to offer including other bundles and items you can purchase individually.
