Ain't No Need to Go outside

 



Today was fairly uneventful, kinda peaceful actually. Hubby has been switched to days for the week, so we woke up at 5am and he left by 6. I started off doing chores around the house, and somehow ended up super gluing my fingers together while trying to fix our lamp. That was quite an adventure, I got them apart but ended up losing some skin in the process... Hubby came home though around 3:30 (oh how I miss the day schedule!). I was able to make dinner for us which I absolutely love doing, but it's very rare we get to have dinner together during the week. I made Steak & Potatoes which I was very proud of. They were both really easy to make and the hubby loved it, I just used things I had around the house. I forgot the picture, but I wrote down all the ingredients I used, Enjoy!


Steak:

2 Steaks of your choice
1/3 C Water
1/3 C Soy Sauce
1/3 C Brown Sugar
1/2 t crushed garlic
1/4 t Cinnamon

Combine water, Soy sauce, brown sugar, and cinnamon in 1 Gallon zip lock bag shake well. Add the steak and marinate at least 20min. Heat grill or skillet and cook approximately 4-5 min on each side.



Potatoes:

2 cups thinly slices potatoes
1/4 Water
1/2 t Chicken Bouillon

6 T milk
1 1/2 T All Purpose Flour
1/2 t crushed garlic
Pinch of salt

1/2 C Shredded cheddar cheese

Combine potatoes, water, and chicken bouillon cube in microwave safe dish and microwave for 13 minutes. Meanwhile combine flour, milk, garlic, and salt, remove potatoes from microwave and add flour mixture. Microwave for another four minutes, remove and add cheese, microwave one last time for three minutes.


 

After dinner we settled down to watch an episode of "Rescue Me" off Netflix, and a thunderstorm broke out it was awesome! Normally I'm terrified but my big, sexy, strong hubby was here so I felt safe! he he =P It was the first thunderstorm since I moved to VB, I took a picture couldn't catch any lightening though... I'm off to enjoy the rest of the night with my amazing sailor, but I think I will start posting more recipes from now on!

Thanks for Reading & commenting I REALLY appreciate it!
