He GMs another role playing game that I play in. We do that once a week, except for me during tax season.

I still need to get out the door and do that shopping.

I was after beef for stew, and thought about how much less cutting I'd have to do.

I didn't cook the steak all the way as it wanted to smoke and the wind is blowing the wrong way to open the windows, but I did cut off and eat the edges.

It really is a steak! Tasty and pretty tender.

I will cut up two of the steaks for stew, cut another into strips like someone posted about flank steak and probably the rest of this steak too.

I'll make a pineapple marinade w/brown sugar, ginger and soy and freeze together with the strips.

The pork sirloin roast came out tender but not overdone. The outside was brown and crusted even though I had it covered during the first hour. I love braising. The braising juice had reduced to about a half cup of concentrated flavor.

I ate the ends with some of the braising liquid. Mmmmm.

I miss D&D! I haven't played in ages. I had two favorite characters, a Paladin and a Monk. What are you Saph?

Dinner tonight is burgers, fries and salad. Dessert will be ice cream. Yes people, we can see the SUN!

I'm a druid ! I've only played one game so far as a Druid and I mistakenly did Entangle in an alleyway.. oh man it was so bad the GM said ok well.. we're going to skip ahead now... LOL .. Fail... fail.. fail... our paladin was donning his armor swiftly in the inn... but thats just as long with 6 second rounds lol

The pizza we ordered had nasty ground beef in it. It was like a mixture of ground beef and other stuff. Yuck. Tummy is turning now.

Almost done my list.. have to drop Nick off at poker soon then its to the store.

Life handed me a lemon when I could have sworn I had a lime in the crisper, too... so no pico de gallo... so along with my grilled steak and potatoes will be some steamed & sautéed green beans and broccoli. And I had a wee bit of marinara left over from the spaghetti the other night, so not to waste it I'm going to boil a little penne, also. I'll have some of my favorite flavors and foods going on tonight along with the garlic bread I'm going to make... so what's a sunny side up egg on top my steak to round it out...

Chicken simmered in white wine, garlic and tarragon, along with mashed potatoes, buttered baby lima beans, iced tea and the last of the orange chiffon cake for dessert. I'm surprised the cake actually lasted the week. I had my doubts earlier in the week.
