  So Brother came back from Kitsumkalum and with Mother still away we had to fend for ourselves…Never fear, we are a dynamic duo!!  We definitely didn’t have to worry about starving to death..especially since Mother made sure to stock up and freeze premade stuff!  Tonight’s dinner: Pan Fried Steak, Deconstructed Baked Potato and Romain Salad!!! (The salad doesn’t get a picture just for being boring.

  I marinaded the steak in olive oil, fresh squeezed lime, steak salt, garlic powder and thyme.  Yum!  And yeah, we were too lazy to get the grill going…so in the pan it goes!  Again, medium rare, medium rare, medium rare!  A guy will lose serious macho points from me if he takes his steaks well done 😛

  As for the Deconstructed Baked Potaotes: first drizzle cubed potatoes with olive oil, throw in some halved garlic cloves, throw on a bit of salt and pepper and a few bay leaves.  Then stick into preheated conventional oven (I think I had it set to 375 degrees)…..basically until cooked through!

  In our case…it didn’t cook through, the steaks were done and we were getting hungry..so I threw them in the pan we fried the steaks in and finished them off there.  Yes, I cheated.  Whatever, cooking them in leftover steak fat was awesome!

  After baking and then pan frying the potatoes I put them back in the dish, put a handful of cheese over it, some real bacon bits and then baked it.  Once the cheese was melted I popped it out, dolloped some sour cream on top and cut up some green onions to garnish. It was yummy!

 

  Yeah, health nut I am NOT!  However, Brother and I had a really wonderful meal together and that, my friends, is what counts 😉
