First things first… have you “liked” For the Sake of Cake on facebook yet?! 😉 If not, what are you waiting for?
Who knew that I could put away so much red meat? Steak was on the menu for dinner tonight again (just like last night), but let’s back up a bit, shall we?
Like (most of) the rest of the world, I had off from work today. Even still, I was up at about 6:30, but laid in bed until 7:00. The early wake up call was a combination of dogs wanting to go out & feeling all congested. I’m not sure if I have a cold, or it’s just allergies, but either way I couldn’t really breathe & in turn, couldn’t really sleep.
Eventually, I rolled out of bed, took Stewie for a quick walk, & headed to the gym.
I had a long to do list for today because I wanted to get a “jump start” on the week ahead. Around 10:30, I texted my mom asking if she’d be interested in grabbing some frozen yogurt for lunch. (Hey, we’ve been known to eat frozen treats as meals before!)
Our closest frozen yogurt place is a good 25 minutes away, but we made the trip & I think we’d both agree it was worth it, right mom?
Kiwi Frozen Yogurt opened recently, but we’ve already been there once before. Today, I loaded up my cup with 3 different types of yogurt plus lots of yummy toppings!
- Peanut butter yogurt
- White chocolate mousse yogurt
- Cookies n’ cream yogurt
- Reese’s pb cup topping
- Cookie dough topping
- Rainbow sprinkles
It was really, really delicious & even though it wasn’t the healthiest lunch, we felt surprisingly full afterwards!
Chris & I had plans to finally use the grill he got for his birthday this evening. Remember what happened last week? Well sadly, this week didn’t turn out much better. We couldn’t get the grill to light for some reason, so we’ll have to figure out what the deal is. In the meantime, I heated up our grill pan!
I grilled the steaks for about 10 minutes (5 on each side), coating it with the marinade frequently.
On the side, I cooked up some Trader Joe’s harvest grain blend that I picked up on Friday. It included Israeli-style couscous, orzo, baby garbanzo beans, & red quinoa. This side dish was by far my favorite part of the meal!
As we were eating, I asked Chris if it was bad that we were eating steak for the second night in a row. His reply? “Yeah, we’ll back off for a little.” Probably a good idea! 😉 Growing up I hated steak, but I’ve come to enjoy it as long as it’s cooked the right way!
Off to go relax & get ready for the season premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
