So I think last night was the first night in well over a month where Jay and I actually had dinner at the dinner table, just the two of us. I felt like that made it a pretty special occasion so I lit a candle for some ambiance.
What can I say? We just love our coffee table dinners.
Last night’s dinner was courtesy of another McCormick Recipe Inspirations packet. The last one that I made was super good, so when I saw they were on sale for $1.00, I couldn’t help but grab another one.
I went for the Caribbean Grilled Steak this time, since we already had a steak in the freezer we could use. Plus, anytime there’s red meat involved, Jay is always a happy camper.
Now that I think about it, I probably should have waited to make this meal until I needed something…
Yes, I can be that wife.
Kidding aside, this meal was absolutely another winner. Jay and I loved the seasoning flavor (even though I did it “wrong” and only seasoned one side of the meat – oops) on the steak and on the grilled pineapple. We also now have a TON leftover, which I’m not quite sure what we’ll do with…maybe some philly steak sandwiches over the weekend?
To go along with our steak and pineapple, I cooked up a small batch of sweet potato fries which also came out great.
As for the rest of our Thursday evening? Well, it pretty much looked like this…
Catching up on the DVR, my cozy blanket, a couple pieces of Halloween candy, and my cuddle buddy. Life is good.
Seeing as though there’s been about, umm, one vegetable to hit my lips over the past couple of days, I decided to make up for it this morning.
Just check out all those veggies!
I sautéed some yellow pepper, red onion, broccoli, and grape tomatoes for a few minutes before adding a generous helping of fresh spinach.
I then mixed in an egg + 2 egg whites and some feta cheese to make for one mean veggie scramble.
Of course, there’s still some banana bread in the house, so I had a big chunk of that too, heated up and topped with some peanut butter.
Definitely a killerrrrrr (and filling) breakfast.
Time to go be productive…Happy Friday!!
