Salt & Pepper, darn that looks awesome! I wish my wife liked pasta. She's one of the 2 or 3 people in the world who doesn't like pasta. It's hard to come up with meals that she'll eat.

Well, that was fun! I did the reverse sear method with these little bacon wrapped steaks in the toaster oven at 275 degrees till they were 120 with an instant read thermometer.It took about 40 minutes. I finished them in a screaming hot pan to perfection, and they were perfectly med. rare. I pre cooked the bacon strips a little at the start before wrapping them with picks.
Here's what they looked like when first going into the very hot skillet.

I hope you took a photo of the "after" steak before you ate it, Kayelle.

As far as Himself going out to grill? Well, he got busy playing with woodworking stuff again and each time I asked when he could go grill it was "just a couple more minutes". Finally, I seasoned the chicken breast cutlets very generously with TJ's African Smoke Seasoning and did them on the Griddler. They were really good, but wintertime good. Slowly, I'm using up our collection of veggies so that I can start fresh next grocery trip. And the cheese toast was yummy.

You could still make shrimp scampi. Serve them up with some rice and a veggie on the side - voila, no pasta! And if she doesn't like rice? You could always make a sub sandwich on a roll with lettuce. And if she does't like sandwiches? God love ya, jd, and good luck.

You could always use spaghetti squash as the "pasta" or use one of those spiral slicers to make summer squash, sweet potato or butternut squash "spaghetti". The butternut would go really well with a brown butter and fresh sage sauce.

We had leftover red lentil curry over jasmine rice. When I pulled the curry from the freezer, I also pulled out some homemade beef stock and made a vege beef soup/stew for another quick heat up meal.
