Steak Sandwich

Standard

 

My husband was wanting a steak sandwich so we were at Safeway and they had some on sale if I remember correctly it was half off. Now I did not cook it that night I thing it was like 2 or 3 days after I bought it that is why its a little brown. But it was very yummy. I cut it up and put some salt and pepper on it.

 

And put the steak in my cast iron skillet with some butter 😉 And I did let the butter get a little brown to give the steak some flavor ( good flavor ) After it was done cooking I took the steak out of the skillet and put the onions in with a little more butter.

 

I sliced the onion and then cut the slices in half to make half rings. Then I sauteed the onions to put on the sandwich.

 

So I used sour dough bread then put the steak, cheese and sauteed onions. And it was yummy!

So sorry it has taken me so long to blog. I’ve just been so busy! I love to blog and I love to cook and share it with you all. Thank you so much for reading my blog and have an awesome weekend!

Oil, Salt and Pepper holders

Standard

 

This is where I keep my oil, salt and pepper. For a long time I kept my Olive Oil in a clear glass bottle. Then I read and heard that Olive Oil was to be kept in a dark place. So one day when I was at Sur La Table I found a new Olive oil holder.

 

 

Here it is! I have to tell you it was so funny when I was putting the Olive oil in it as you can see it’s not clear so I really did not know when it was time to stop pouring the oil in until it came out the spout hahahaha. And it landed on the cork lid of the salt holder that is the next picture.

 

 

This is the salt holder. Yes so on the cork lid a little less than half is a darker color than the rest. I may have to oil the whole  thing so I won’t have to see it like that 🙂 But I love it 🙂 It works for me!

 

 

Now Sur La Table does not have one for pepper. I’m thinking because they want you to get the one that grinds the pepper. I will get that one some day. But my awesome friend had 2 of these salt holders and she gave me one so I use it for the pepper.

 

 

They are all together on the counter in front of the stove just where I need them. I love fixing up my Kitchen and sharing my new things with you all.

Thank you for reading my blog about fixing up my house have a great coming up weekend 🙂

My Friend Robin’s Chili

Standard

Well because I cook this in the crock pot. The night before I cooked the hamburger. So I would not have to do it in the morning. Because I get up at 6:00 anyways for work. I love my sleep so I did it the night before 🙂

 

So after the meat is all fried or browned I put in some taco seasoning in the meat. Now you can use a Rotisserie Chicken instead of hamburger meat. Then I put it in the refrigerator for the night. Then the next morning I put it all together 🙂

 

Now here is everything that goes in it excepted the hamburger.

 

So the next morning I heated up the hamburger in the microwave then put it in the crock pot.

 

Then I put in one can of black beans.

 

And one can of pinto beans.

 

And 2 cans of white beans.

 

I chopped up 1 bunch of green onions and put them in.

 

Now for the cilantro I put one bunch. You can put 1/2 of a bunch or to your liking. We like cilantro so to our liking we put one whole bunch 🙂

 

Now put in a can of green enchilada sauce.

 

And 1/2 of a jar of salsa verde.

 

Then I stirred the chili.

 

Then I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth.

 

Now it’s time for the spices. Cumin, Chili powder, red pepper flakes, Salt and pepper. Put all to your liking!

 

Oh yes and we can not forget the Garlic lol I put about 3 spoon fulls of minced garlic. I could have put more to my liking. So put to your liking 🙂

 

 

 

Then stir it all together put a lid on it keep it on low. Everything is already cooked we just want to marry all the flavors for a yummy chili.

 

When it’s done like 6 to 8 hours later here it is.

 

Then add some grated cheese to it any kind. This one is Monterey jack Cheese.

 

You can have it with some chips like I did or some Mexican corn bread. I did not get home til after 8 or I would have made some Mexican corn bread 🙂

 

And here is the left overs. I filled to Mason Jars. I love me some Mason Jars. This weekend I went and bought more Mason Jars 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Hamburger or Rotisserie Chicken

1 can of black beans

1 can of pinto beans

2 cans of white beans

1 can of green enchilada sauce

1/2  Jar of salsa verde

1 Bunch of green onions

1 or 1/2 of cilantro

1/2 cup of chicken broth

Cumin to your liking

Chili powder to your liking

Red pepper flakes to your liking

Salt and pepper to your liking

Garlic to your liking

Cook in crock pot all day 🙂

To have with the Chili:

Teriyaki Chicken with Mac n Cheese

Standard

Here is the Teriyaki Chicken. I put chicken thighs and 2 chicken breast. I started them frozen. Then I put so minced garlic, brown sugar and some Teriyaki sauce. Put it in the crock pot all day on low. And it turned out so good.

 

In a lg bowl I grated Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese and Mozzarella cheese.

 

In 3 small bowls I put 2 table spoons of flour, In the next bowl I put 1 egg, in the third bowl I put salt, pepper and dry mustard.

 

In a lg bowl I put about 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups of milk.

 

My pasta is cooked and drained awaiting the cheese sauce. In the next pot I have started my cheese sauce. I melted some butter then I put a small amount of minced garlic in the butter. Then I added the flour after a few min. I added the cold milk. After it heated up I put in the salt, pepper and dry mustard. After it is hot I took a soup ladle and added the hot sauce to the egg slowly.  Then I added the egg to the sauce.  I stirred it for a few more min. then I added the 3 cheeses to the sauce. And of course I had to try it and it was so yummy!!

 

I poured the cheese sauce on the pasta.

 

I buttered this dish and poured the mac n cheese in it. The dish was a little small and it started over flowing. So I took some out and Tiffany, Tony and I ate it.

 

I had saved some cheese to put on top before I baked it.

 

350 degrees and 20 min later this is what came out of the oven.

 

To go with the Teriyaki Chicken I cut and cooked in some oil and butter an onion and 1 huge red bell pepper.

 

Then I added some crushed pineapple about 3 table spoons to it after the onions and peppers were cooked all the way.

 

And here it is all on the plate. My husband loved it! Well they all did my son and daughters.

Thank you so much for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it.
