Everyone's Sunday Suppers sound great!
K & SC, I'd like to come to your house! My favorite kinda dinner! Pupus and drinks!!

We have been gone ALL DAY! We left this morning and met
Mr & Mrs DF at the small local produce farm, close to our new home, for their Sweet Corn Festival this weekend...What FUN!! Had lunch at there for $7, a Pulled pork sandwich, Roasted corn on the cob (just brought in from the field), watermelon (also, just brought in from the fields), Texas Sheet or Carrot Cake and Iced tea, YUM!!
We strolled around the farm and watched the kiddos playing on all of the "attractions" and then headed for this other REALLY small farm stand, way out in the country. We bought some beautiful fruits and veggies at both places... SO!
Dinner is simple for us tonight:
More Sweet Corn on the Cob with butter and salt&pepper
Sweet Watermelon (from the farm stand), and
Cheese Burger deluxe, I've already started but have not served as yet...

Spent the day floating around the lake with some friends, so a quick and easy dinner tonight. Grilled chicken breasts in a bottled roast garlic marinade, corn on the cob, caprese salad.

I ran late running errands today, so I threw a strip steak in the pan when I got home, and made a quick mushroom pan sauce. Leftover spinach on the side.

Actually it wasn't too bad for an impromptu throw-together meal, I guess.

Steve, your sauce looks so rich! Did you use a thickener or is it all from a reduction?

Steve! "Yeah, I just threw something together."

That's magazine quality. My thrown together stuff in no way resembles that steak!

Thanks! It's all reduction. I made a beef roast a while back and had a lot of pan drippings left over. So I added stock and red wine and reduced it down to a little less than a cup of this really nice sauce, which I froze.

I pulled it out a couple of days ago with the intention of using it for something else, but since there was so little of it, I just tossed it in the pan with the sauteed mushrooms and a splash of cream.

It really was just kind of an afterthought.

And that's what you get when you're a ROCK STAR HOME COOK!

Just beautiful Steve!

Just saw this Steve...

Menage a Trois was our favorite. It reminded us somewhat of Butternut, but softer somehow.

Duck Commander was also excellent, and we'll order it again. Cracks me up it's from Duck Dynasty.

Can you say we're less than sophisticated??
