I am not liking this getting dark at 5 o’clock business – it is not helping at all with my dinnertime photo sessions. I may have to revert to Lunch with Julie.
Remember that beef tenderloin steak I brought home from Murrieta’s? It turned into two mighty fine grilled sandwiches. Thankfully (or perhaps not considering how many mini chocolate bars remain in the house) my gut forgave me and I got my appetite back. I attempted a sort of Philly cheesesteak by sauteing a half onion and red pepper with some garlic and sandwiching them with the thinly sliced steak remains and a bit of grated cheese between two slices of grainy bread drizzled on the outside with olive oil.
I mean – look at this!
It always amazes me how much you can get out of leftovers from a restaurant – I used to make a habit of asking the server to pack up half my meal as soon as I got to that point (if it’s in front of me, I’ll eat it), and without fail upon bringing it home and putting it on one of my plates it turns into as much or more than I would eat if I served it up at home. (Not counting the after-dinner pickings, I suppose.)
I think I need to set a few parameters for Free Stuff Fridays – I know a lot of people don’t get to log on over the weekend, so lets say the free stuff gets posted on Friday, and I’ll draw for it on Tuesday morning, after CBC. That way I’ll remember to do it at the same time every week too. Sound fair?
