Good morning! Rebecca and I got back to our walking this morning. It was awesome, but I wish the cooler weather was still here. Oh, well. I could tell that fall is trying to come because it is not getting light as early. I don't like that part, but I will welcome cooler temperatures.
Last night was pretty relaxed. My husband and I made a delicious dinner. We had steak (cut from beef tenderloin...great tip coming up) with salad and roasted potato.
The steak we use we buy at Costco as a whole beef tenderloin and then we cut it into small steaks and wrap them in Glad press and seal and put them in a freezer bag and freeze them. The tenderloins are forty to fifty bucks depending on size, but they cut into about 20 dinner portion steaks. So that makes them around 2 dollars per steak, which I think is pretty good. And they are delicious.
Daniel, the husband, found a new salad dressing recipe that we tried last night. It was awesome! Here it is Awesome Balsamic Dressing
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil (I think I used a little less than that...the recipe called for 3/4 cup, but I wanted to reduce that)
1 tsp dried oregano
1 clove minced garlic
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Combine, whisk, refrigerate. I used about two tablespoons on our salad. It was amazing. Especially since I hadn't been to the store since Gruene and all I had for the salad was hearts of palm, red onion and spring mix (thanks Mom for buying a huge box at Costco and letting me steal half of it yesterday). It will be reappearing tonight.
The rest of the evening was spent watching football and reading.
Sammy and I are really enjoying The Help. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. I will be seeing the movie when I finish the book.
