As a matter of fact, I'm going to grill marinated steak tips also. I'm trying a new marinade from Serious Eats. I have a pasta and tossed salads as sides.

At my house, pretty much every day is wine day. Maybe today I'll have a rum & coke just to be different.

Dinner tonight will be burgers.

Dinner will be hamburgers again with a Knorr's rice and pasta side and probably lettuce dressed with salt, pepper, lemon juice and grated parm and romano cheese.

I just made a first time Instant Pot Lemon cream cheese cake.
Haven't tried it yet. If it is good I will post recipe.

The texture/firmness needs some tweaking but it tasted good. Maybe less time cooking.

Here's a serving

We're going to the local Sushi place for their early bird specials this evening.

I was going to cadge dinner off Mom and Dad but, they weren't home. I still gave Jethro treats and dug up some nasty thistles they had going. Also chopped down last years Hibiscus canes. I'll take myself out for rib eye dinner.

Just getting home..one of our regulars asked me to cater her rehearsal dinner, as she is getting married tomorrow...soooo, I agreed..I don't do much of this anymore, tired of working late, full service,etc....made them prime rib dinner, cheese cake dessert..now, I get to have leftover taco ingredients in microwaved tortilla wraps..the glamorous life of restaurant owners...

I've thought about supper. Even washed the veggies for supper. We're supposed to have Panzanella, but I'm drowsy and my upper left are is achy - so very achy. I got the first of two old-people pneumonia vaccine shots yesterday. They warned me that the arm could feel sore, but like this? They said that ice might help. I think I'll put a cube or two into a glass of white and figure it out from there...
