Life is good with aromatics in it.

A small piece of steak leftover, a little tired.
No sauce.
Looking to make a light lunch.
A small steak.
How’s steak and eggs?
Nice, had only half a muffin for breakfast.
But how to enhance?

Remember our “Always on hand” page in the Recipe section of the blog?
Aromatics are listed as musts to have: bell pepper, onion, chili pepper.
Pulled them out and in 90 seconds they were frying in a bit of olive oil.
What a way to spray lovely aromas through the apartment.
Life is good with aromatics in it.

When the aromatics soften, add the bite-sized pieces of steak.
Get them heated and then add the eggs.
With a slice of toast from Iggy’s Sliced Francese loaf, a half glass of awesome orange juice enhanced with ½ oz of vodka, lunch was delicious..
And then a short nap before going out.

Answer to Question:

Edgar Allan Poe (born: Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American writer, editor, and literary critic.

Ray Donovan is an American television crime drama series created by Ann Biderman for Showtime.
The twelve-episode first season premiered on June 30, 2013.
The pilot episode broke viewership records, becoming the biggest premiere of all time on Showtime.
Showtime renewed the show for a fourth season, which premiered on June 26, 2016.
On August 11, 2016, Showtime renewed the show for a fifth season, which premiered on August 6, 2017.
On October 23, 2017, the series was renewed for a 12-episode sixth season, filmed in New York City, which premiered on October 28, 2018.

The drama is set in Los Angeles, California, where Irish-American Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber), originally from South Boston, works for the powerful law firm Goldman & Drexler, representing the rich and famous.
Donovan is a "fixer": a person who arranges bribes, payoffs, threats, and other shady activities, to ensure the outcome desired by the client.
Good at his job, and no common hood, Ray is normally a devoted family man as well.
He experiences his own problems when his menacing father, Mickey Donovan (Jon Voight), is unexpectedly released from prison, and the FBI attempts to bring down Ray and his associates

Ray Donovan has received positive reviews from critics.
Rotten Tomatoes gives the first season a rating of 76% based on reviews from 38 critics, with the sites consensus stating: "Ray Donovan moves quickly between genres and tones, with Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight's performances making the whiplash worth it".
Metacritic gives the first season a weighted average score of 75 out of 100, based on reviews from 36 critics, indicating "generally positive reviews".

Tim Goodman, writing for The Hollywood Reporter, said that "Showtime has another gem on their hands" and the casting of Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight was "gold".
