I'll be doing Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches tonight trying to replicate the outstanding ones we had in Philly last month. We bought some top round steak and froze it to get paper thin slices. I have the onions sliced thin with some red bell pepper strips, and a jar of the required Cheese Whiz all ready to go. Nice soft Hoggie rolls will be preheated.
I saved back some of the Southwest roasted corn and black bean salad from yesterday.
Wonder of all wonders...I baked today! Oooey Gooey Lemon Butter Cake will be dessert with some sliced strawberries on top.

That meal should cover the calorie requirements for a week or longer.

I actually have a picture! We had our young friend over as she is without her two kids for a bit and she came over to enjoy our A/C and WiFi LOL so we treated her to dinner as well. She takes pictures of all her meals out so I got her to send it to me.

We had grilled steaks, bacon wrapped asparagus, corn on the cob and Caesar salad. It was very good and I only had to do the prepping, TB did the cooking!

Good looking meals Joey and LP.

We went to La Porte Grecque after an exploratory shopping excursion to a new Asian supermarket. The food was excellent, even though it was a Sunday.

Nice pics, guys!

We had DH's afterbirth dinner at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Cochinita pibil, rice, beans, done the way it's supposed to be done. And we shared an aquarium sized margarita, also made the way it's supposed to be made, unlike the swill we had last night

"... afterbirth dinner ..."

Glad you had a great meal and a properly made Margarita.

I know. I coined the phrase from a good buddy and former roommate.

DH's birthday was yesterday, so today was his afterbirthday.

Grill time again! Bacon-wrapped grilled corn on the cob, pasta salad, and a little side of fresh sliced tomatoes. Dessert was a simple pound cake with strawberry preserves on top.

Light summer fare, but tasty!

Yeah, the word 'placenta' came to mind when I read that. Then I thought of the cat I had as a kid who would only give birth on my lap and no where else.

How were your Philly Cheese Steak sammies, Kay? I saw a recent episode of ATK and they made PCS sammies - thought of you and your recent trip back east. They looked delicious!
