Didn't even get home til 530 so dinner was potstickers, asparagus and a fruit plate. Weird but it did the job.

I can't believe it's been so long since I made mashed potatoes. Man they hit the spot.

That cubed steak sounds good 'nilla. I never heard of it being cooked in a slow cooker before.

Thanks, Alix. It was good. If the iced tea added anything it wasn't much.
I always thought the steaming liquid only added a hint of flavor/aroma anyway. Except when it comes to beer steam, which I used to like but not so much anymore. I'll use pretty much anything but beer in my beer can chicken, lol.

pacanis... I came across a recipe online for cube steaks in the crock-pot. I haven't cooked them in the crock-pot either. This was my first time. The sauce that this recipe made used onion soup mix. I thought that would be too salty. Plus, it called for 6-8 steaks. I scaled it down for two. It turned out really GOOD! I was surprised. The meat was so moist.

That does look good, Vanilla.
I'm going to have to give that a try sometime.

Your dinner looks really delicious! I would love to try that. I guess I never think of anything like that, because it's just the two of us.

Now there is something I haven't had in a long time... tacos. The pulled pork idea sounds delish!
