I had every intention of making The Pioneer Woman’s Steak Bites for dinner on Tuesday. My youngest ended up going to my sister’s for dinner, my oldest was working and all the other kids were at their dad’s. That meant Sweet Tea and I were alone for dinner. When she offered a date night I jumped on it! I put the mostly thawed steak in the fridge to save for later.
Wednesday was the 4th, and we spent it with friends eating way too much and chilling by the pool. I thought about bringing the steak there, but since there were only 2 steaks and 9 people I decided against it. We were already bringing a Mandarin Spinach Salad, Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad, Boudin, Bloody Mary fixins, and Popcicle Cocktails so I figured we were contributing. I’m glad we didn’t decide to bring steak because we had BBQ chicken, Teriyaki chicken, 2 types of sausages, chicken wings, grilled shrimp, boiled shrimp, baked beans, seafood pasta salad, broccoli salad, deviled eggs, stuffed jalapenos, as well as what I made so I don’t think the Steak Bites were missed!
This morning I had a crown lengthening done to prepare for a crown on my tooth. Because I have stitches in my mouth I don’t think Steak Bites is the best option for dinner. The steaks needed to be cooked so Sweet Tea is broiling them. She’s also making fried yellow squash. I had a bite of one and it was delicious! Since I don’t want to try to chew meat I might be eating more than my fair share of squash for dinner! Aw…darn.
I guess I’ll put Steak Bites on the menu for next week. I should be able to chew just fine by then!
