We Did have 1/4 meat and 3/4's veggies on our plates, however, and was it ever good! I marinated a cut of round steak in soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce, olive oil, garlic, onion powder and parsley after pounding the life out of the steak. Let it sit for a couple of hours, and oh so tender with flavor that was ' out of this world,' pan braised 6 min. on one side and 4 on the other for medium rare, on medium high heat. The sauteed veggies were overdone due to absent-mindedness. It happens. Next to the steak is a cranberry chutney of ground cranberries, finely diced orange, normally a handful of walnuts, but this time, pecans, sugar to taste and, Mercy! What a treat on the steak!
I made Angel Cake earlier in the afternoon, so we will call this dessert a Strawberry Angel Cake. The homemade whipped cream added just the right ' YUM' to an already delicious dessert.
I'd say we put quite the dent in the ' on occasion,' healthy eating. What did you have for supper/dinner?
(Sorry Jack. I know you and Sherry are so ready for some home cooking. I wish we could have had you at our table for this one. You are welcome to dine with us anytime as we visit away the hours. I still need to make amends to Sherry for that dry Cho. cake.:)
Thanks to all of you for stopping. Have a wonderful week. It's -5 below again this morning but promises of a heatwave of low 30's by this afternoon gives us hope. One of these days, our snow is going to melt into the ground and leave green grass, gardens waiting for plantings and planters to fill with bright colors. I cannot wait, tho I must.
