I still need to go shopping. Meantime, I pulled out some flank steak I have and then realized it needs about 12 hours of marinating. So there goes dinner tonight. Then I thought of having a tuna melt, except I have no bread.

I should just get my lazy butt out there and shop, but I've got 6 stores to go to and if I do them all tomorrow, I can take advantage of the Friday sale and at the same time, just circle round the the bay with a minimum amount of driving.

So with no meat thawed and nothing in the cupboard, no noodles, no bread, no cheese, no potatoes, no veggies, and no eggs, anybody got any suggestions? Besides Taco Bell, that is?

I have pancake mix. LOL

I had a nibble tray this afternoon. Olive tapenade hummus (store bought, but it was delicious) with celery sticks, a few different kinds of cheese, crackers, deviled egg, a couple of pickles, and watermelon.

I got home late, so I'm going to butterfly a chicken breast, pan fry it, and make a chicken sandwich. Probably fruit on the side.

Chicken fajitas, and refried beans. It wasn't real pretty, but it sure was tasty.

Stirling is going to a potluck on Saturday. He wants to bring a Mock Armadillo (Danish meatloaf). He wanted to make it well ahead of time in case of oopsies. Then he figured he could just as well make two at once and we could have one for supper. So, supper was mock armadillo with roasted potato wedges and a salad.

That does look like an armadillo body. You could easily make a head out of some veggies. Let me know if you ever want to try cooking a real one. We have plenty. We call them speed bumps.

Flank steak does not need to be marinated that long; marinating adds flavor, but doesn't tenderize, so a couple of hours will be fine. Don't overcook it, slice it against the grain, and it will be nice and tender.

Reserve some of the marinade to use as a sauce. Cut a cross-hatch pattern in the steak and put it in the marinade for two hours. Turn it over a few times during marinating. Sear it in a very hot pan for three minutes per side and let rest for five minutes. Slice and serve.

I fixed the wildflower honey ham steak and had mac&cheese as a side, along with a salad. Finished the last pumpkin muffin for dessert.
