I never got around to posting last night’s dinner, but we had tostones, steak, and green beans.
Shout out to my brother and sister-in-law who got us this awesome grill pan for our wedding – we LOVE it!
And for dessert (only because I know you hate it when I forget to tell you when they’re BOGO at Publix, Jackie) a chocolate Vitatop.
I only buy them when they’re BOGO at Publix. So delicious, but usually so $$. I wish they went on sale more often!
We still had a leftover steak in the fridge by the time lunch rolled around, which inspired today’s delicious creation.
Hot open faced steak sandwiches. Can I get a holy yum?
I sliced the steak length-wise then layered it on some multigrain french bread with a drizzle of Trader Joe’s hummus dressing and sprinkle of parmesan cheese. I placed everything under the broiler just long enough to let the bread crisp, the steak to warm up, and the cheese to melt.
The entire creation was fabulous. An open faced sandwich is by far my favorite way to eat left over steak. 🙂
On the side I had leftover tostones with ketchup
and cucumber slices.
My aunt and uncle sent a couple of scratch offs with my birthday card this year.
(p.s. Scratch off tickets are a great inexpensive birthday gift option. You only need to spend a couple of dollars on the tickets and it’s guaranteed to entertain the recipient – especially if they end up winning!)
Baller! I won a $1.00!
When I worked at a grocery store in college I used to have customers who spent a good amount of time buying multiple scratch offs at the service counter. If they won $1.00, they would put that $1.00 towards another one. If they won $5.00, they would use that $5.00 to buy five more. The pattern would usually continue until they won big or they were out of scratch off tickets. I saw a few big winners, but I also saw a lot of losing tickets.
Are you a scratch-off fanatic?
Admittedly I’m probably the world’s saddest gambler. I’ll probably just keep the $1 and buy some gum with it. 🙂
