What’s better on a Friday after a long week than dinner in with some wine and someone to snuggle with? Not much I tell ya. Last week at the cube was epically exhausting. I was beyond stressed to the point of not even being angry or annoyed with work, just absolutely numb. So when Friday came around and Bri-guy and I were thinking of what to do, he knew just what I needed- nothing fancy, just some quality down time.
I decided the least I could contribute was the meal- since food and what I’m going to cook takes up about 80% of my daily thinking. Bri-guy wanted to grill of course, and it has been unseasonably warm lately. I decided to combine two of my favorite things then, grilled steak, and tacos. This baby marinated all day in the fridge:
Then it was time to get the shells and the fixin’s ready. (Side note: crunchy tacos probably aren’t the best for steak, but, they are my fave, so I went with it.)
Now, I was also trying to be resourceful and use up a few things, so instead of crunchy lettuce, we had brussel sprouts slaw, But instead of the apple, I went with a carrot this time. And you know what, it was pretty good.
The meal & the company were just what I needed. Even got my first seasonal viewing of Love Actually! The only thing there was too much of was wine. Whew.
Saturday was an epically bad hangover. I mean, brutal… not even this thing could help:
I could only manage about half, and it was dang delicious. Perfectly cooked, topped with a bit of cheese and caramelized onions, I will definitely be going back for another one of those, though hopefully not hungover next time. Ugh.
