The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 112

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday!

My day was SO busy!  I decided it was time for a little spring cleaning around here, wanted to get the place spruced up a little before I go back to work tomorrow, and make it a little easier to keep it clean.  So, we swept, mopped, vacuumed, stripped beds, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the bathrooms, dusted, used the spot carpet shampooer on the hallway and living room spots, and after dinner I made up what I hope is a weeks worth of sandwiches and salads so that everyone can have easy to fix lunches.  Made up a gallon of Gatorade, filled the bottles we reuse, took snacks and some of the Gatorade bottles over to a friends, since she’s going to watch William after school.  Good thing that’s his best friends mom!  I think I’m ready…

Anyway, we had a quick and easy dinner tonight, tasted pretty good, too!  Here’s the scoop:

Pan Fried Eye Round Steaks

1 package eye round steaks, thin cut

1/2 Tsp dried Rosemary leaves

1/2 Tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Sprinkle all your spices into a large skillet, set to medium heat and allow to toast just a bit before you add in your steaks.  Once pan is warmed up, add the steaks and cook about 2 minutes on each side, or just until browned.  Might be slightly pink in the center, but not much!  Serve!

Sauteed Green Beans

1 Package frozen cut green beans

2 Tbsp bacon bits

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tsp garlic powder

Melt butter in large skillet.  Add in green beans, garlic and bacon bits. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until everything is nice and hot.  Serve!

We also had some store bought rolls with this, so it was a nice dinner.  The guys made steak sandwiches out of their rolls and thin cut steaks!

Gotta come up with something quick and easy, or a good crock pot meal, for tomorrow.  Won’t have much time after work and before scouts, so gotta be ready!

Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
