At the moment, I am coaxing my
Ben is off and about today, making a trip to Best Buy. He didn't say what he was going after... either a component to fix his laptop or else a new computer. Or maybe something else I am not even aware he wants. I've got a grocery list going that he offered to get, but I'm thinking I need to get it filled out a bit more. There isn't anything pressing we need today.
I can't decide what to make for supper. Last night, I threw a couple of frozen 'chuck steaks' into my Pampered Chef covered baker. I started with a drizzle of olive oil in the bottom, and sliced half an onion and a clove of garlic into that. Then added a steak. I repeated the onion and garlic, added a second steak, and finished off with more onion and garlic. I baked it almost two hours, carefully swapping the top and bottom steaks around after about 45 minutes. They were still slightly tough- owing to the cut of meat, I'm sure- but very tasty. As long as the oven was going, I wrapped each of us a potato in foil- again with a drizzle of olive oil and a peeled clove of garlic- and baked them. About 45 minutes before Tom was due home, I wrapped some fresh asparagus in foil with a small chunk of butter, and tossed it in next to the potatoes.
I'm still trying to catch on to cooking for just a few people.
I know there was something specific I meant to post about here, but can't bring it to mind at the moment. Maybe this will be a two-post day!
