I had taken two turkey cold cuts sandwiches to the office today - one for my breakfast and one for my lunch, along with a banana and an orange. I also had a chewy granola bar from a box someone had brought to share at the office (there were cookies, too, and chocolates, but I didn't eat those). Even so, I was rather hungry by the time I came home at 6:45 p.m. So, I had another turkey cold cuts sandwich along with my evening cup of tea. I guess my appetite is returning! LOL.
|Sauted Beef and Vegetables|
I had bought two beef shoulder steaks when I went grocery shopping on Monday; I cut them into pieces and marinated them with Worcestershire sauce, ground black pepper, etc. and stir-fried them with onions on Tuesday night. I also boiled the potatoes. Then, I put the cooked beef and the potatoes in the fridge for later. Today, I cut up the potatoes and sauted them, along with a thinly sliced carrot. I added about half of the beef and a handful of frozen green peas, too. One could add any vegetables to it. I had a portion of it for my dinner; the rest is in the fridge for another meal (or two). I will probably freeze the rest of the cooked beef and have it next week or the week after. It's not exactly bulk cooking, but cooking enough for a couple of meals means I don't have to cook every day if I choose not to.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Another sunny and warm day
- A safe commute to the office and back
- A drive through the park on the way to the office
- Seeing a hawk fly
- My daughter sharing her day's happenings with me
