I’m so far behind I don’t know where to start!

Even though I haven’t been blogging, August was an busy and productive month for us. We managed to finsh building out the new garage shelving, which is just beautiful in my opinion. Let’s see how long we can keep it that way. Lizzie got her first haircut EVER! We are all happy with the result; no more tangles and a lot less shedding.

The best part of August though was Beach Week and a different seafood restaurant every night. It’s hard to say, but I think our favorite was Blue Parrot and their crab claws.

As wonderful as Beach Week was, now it’s time to get back to the real world.
Sunday’s dinner was simple…Beef and Bean Burritos with Salsa Rice. Other than the fresh toppings, that meal came straight out of the freezer.

Meatless Monday was almost meatless with Sneaky Quiche. I did sneak in a little bacon, but this dish is called “sneaky” beacause it doesn’t call for a conventional pie crust but sneaks its’ own in. It’s a delicious dish.
Flat Iron steak was on sale this week. We enjoyed it two nights in a row in two completely different preparations. Tuesday night was Pepper Steak over plain brown rice. I hadn’t made that in a while, but it was very good. I’ll have to serve it again soon.

Wednesday evening Michael grilled a batch of Steak Fajitas. We had a side of Cauliflower Tomato “Grits” and Mexican Cream tied it all together.

Thursday night brought another variety of Stuffed Mushrooms, this time with Italian sausage. I tend to make stuffed mushrooms often. While I was looking up the Italian sausage version I ran across my recipe for some stuffed with spinach. I plan to make those next week.
Friday night was a repeat of Grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks along with Cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes. I try to stay away from white potatoes, but they just taste good, especially when stuffed with cheese and butter and sour cream. Do you think the healthy grilled tuna offset any of all that? Oh well. To quote Katherine Hepburn, “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”
Be thankful for what life gives you.
