I had a taste for Mexican and satisfied it with quesadillas with molé. Caramelized onions and cheese on the inside... and the outside, too.
This was round 1

Yeah, it was a version I have wanted to try for a long time, but I think I would do it again only for "occasions" with guests, similar to a cassoulet or other big production meals.

DH is on a weird sleep schedule again, so I had supper by myself. DH isn't a fan of "slab-o-meat". I am, so I had steak.

I used Buckytom's suggestion to "really go to town" on stabbing the meat with a fork to tenderize. I had one of my mystery "king steaks". The stabbing really helped. I made a quick sauce by deglazing the pan with wine and water, threw in some herbes de provence, reduced it a bit and swirled some butter in at the end to thicken it. Yum.

I had microwave steamed broccoli with it. Nothing on the broccoli, 'cause I love the taste of lightly steamed broccoli so much that butter-pig-taxlady didn't even put butter on it. I was going to nuke a potato, but I was afraid it would be too much food. It was plenty.

Hamburgers and oven fries. Unfortunately, I didn't time the fries right. Ouch. I don't screw up often, but this time ... Oh, well. The burgers were from Omaha Steaks, and were quite tasty. Don't know if I'll buy again, but I do think they tasted pretty darned good. I topped them with a "French onion marmalade" made by a friend of mine this summer. Oh, dear. Maybe it wasn't the meat that was so good, but the onion relish I topped them with!!!

Yes. I bought a couple plates when they were on sale a while back. Nice and thick with high sides. I might get some more.
