So, here is my blog, and something of a diary of the foodie days and nights in our house.
I LOVE to cook. In fact, it is a stress reliever for me, so the more stress, the more cooking. My boyfriend thinks he has gained 20 pounds in the last year, partly due to stress, but let's face it...food is good !
So, I am attempting to explain how we are able to eat really good food, for lunch and dinner, most days of the week, and still have time for hobbies, chores, and time together.
Tonight, we had steak fajitas, which are really very little work at all, provided you have the ingredients on hand. That is one of the rules I follow to make our dinners complete each night. I shop on the weekend for the entire week, so I had everything on hand.
I admit, I forgot to take the steak out of the freezer last night. So, I took it out this morning,and thawed during the day. Ray put it in the marinade (just some simple bottled Mojo sauce from the Mexican market)when he got home. If you have the vacuum sealer/marinade dish, even better. I came home, grabbed a beer, ate some brie and crackers. Then I cut up some peppers (1/2 red, 1 jalapeno) one onion sliced thin, drizzled with olive oil, salt and ground red pepper, and wrapped in a double layer of foil. Then, just toss them all on the grill. I put a little grill seasoning on the steak, and grilled to medium rare. I put the tortillas on for the last 2 minutes, on the upper rack, just to get them warm and toasty.
Dinner is ready ! Sour cream, shredded cheese and some homemade canned salsa (more on canning later), and honey says dinner is "outstanding". Hardly any work at all !
Always make a little extra for lunch tomorrow. We make fajita nachos, which we can heat up at work. Every one will be jealous !
