I just wanted to give a shout-out to my friend Tim, who just texted me asking if I were pregnant. Apparently he read my blog. 🙂 Haha very funny!
I have some exciting news (for me). I have a work opportunity that I’m really excited about. Unfortunately I can’t reveal too much because of where I work but for the next month I will be filling in for someone in a different department. She’s retiring and they didn’t find a replacement in time. It’s a part time gig but it will be something new and hopefully interesting! I start training today. I’m really excited!
Now for the Heavenly Food…
Last night Michael and I were apparently psychic with our food cravings. I was about to leave for the grocery store to buy steak for dinner and he said, “How do you feel about steak for dinner?” Sweet! I picked up a smallish (12 oz) Sirloin steak and Michael grilled it up outside.
We split the steak, so we each got 6 ounces–the perfect amount. I sliced up the zucchini and he grilled that too with the steak seasoning and some Grapeseed Oil. Then I topped the zucchini with blue cheese crumbles.
While Michael did the grilling, I baked the sweet potatoes in the oven.
We decided that we want to make Sunday nights our “steak night.” I love the idea. Grilling up a steak outside sounds like the perfect way to spend the summer!
Now on to breakfast…I picked up these at the grocery store when I got the steak:
Honestly, I think the next time I make waffles I will use our regular syrup. While the calories are low in this, it tasted a little “off.” I guess I’m not used to sugar free anymore because I’ve been trying to eat more “real” food.
The waffles were yummy. I was a little worried that they wouldn’t be filling, but so far so good. I also had a few strawberries on the side.
QUESTION: If you eat steak, what is your favorite cut of beef?
