Need to Catch Up?

Yesterday was a great day off… I went to a beautiful little girl’s first birthday party. Where I had some cake Good Scratch Cake! A vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing… MY FAVOURITE!
I didn’t eat mine and half of Thing 2’s!
Supper was picked by Bubba (Thing 1) He was wanting steak as we haven’t had it in a long time. Since we had none at home and the local grocery store is not open on holiday’s, we are lucky we have a local meat cutter who supplies a gas convenience store with frozen, yet good cuts of meat!
While Hubby was out fetching meat like the good caveman he is, I started boiling some baby potatoes…
After they were done boiling I drained the water and placed them back in the pan with some seasoning, and sea salt with a little bit of canola oil and slowly fake roasted them in the same non-stick pan as I boiled them. If you haven’t gotten this yet, I HATE DISHES! Any time I can make meals in the same pot/pan I will.
Since the steaks had to be defrosted in the microwave due to lack of time I decided to try our new FoodSaver’s marinate function. It is really pretty cool… it is supposed to allow you to marinate foods in minutes instead of hours, by opening up the “pores” of the meat
It took about 5 minutes, as it went through it’s cycles of pressurizing, depressurizing… and honestly it worked! Our steaks were really tender despite a longer than normal bbq time of a Traeger wood pellet bbq. I normally do not like steaks done on the wood bbq, and prefer the propane one, but I have to say using this method I may be a convert! They were so nice a smokey and did not need any sauces!
Great pick Bubba!!
